"I couldn't help myself"

Which cards do you enjoy so much that you'll sometimes go for them even when you know it's not the best play?

I can think of:
-Embargo. Burn the kingdom. (I'm sorry)
-Masterpiece. A $17 masterpiece buy just feels nice. Destroys my engine though.
-Pirate ship. There's something really satisfying about collecting those coin tokens (while, sadly, trashing opponents' coppers).

Miser and Poor House. Really satisfying payload if you can get them to work.

I buy normally-vicious discard attacks, even when Tunnel is in the Kingdom.

I've also managed to get the stars aligned so I could Prince King's Court... only for the game to end before my next turn.

Double Witch is a powerful BM strategy because Witch is sufficiently powerful, Double Jack is a powerful BM strategy, because Jack is sufficiently powerful, and Double Margrave is a powerful BM strategy, for the same reason.  I've heard around that Tactician is more powerful than any of those cards.  And Tactician can meaningfully be played as your only terminal for the term.  Therefore, Double Tactician is a powerful BM strategy.

Also you probably are an expert if you buy two bureaucrats early.

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

Estate rush in a Battlefield game with a cheap +buy or gainer.

I'm pretty good at two-piling.

It's maybe my favorite card, and I pretty much always overbuy, because pulling the slot machine is more fun than winning.

Is there a reason you always go for Tax?

Well, when Tax is on the board, the starting taxes are pretty sure.

Not really sure where you are from, but in the U.S. we have saying. "The only certain things in life are death and taxes." I was trying to make a joke like this saying that I go for Hireling when it's on the board because it worked really well for me once.
