I think it's more when you'd open with a $2 on 4/3 where 5/2 becomes really crazy. I think an okay 4/3 opening against a $5/- nothing opening will tend to be evenly matched. Now make it a $5/Chapel, $5/Raze, or $5/Page opening and it starts to get iffy for the 4/3.

For what it's worth, I think Exorcist tends to be another really solid opener on 4/3.

What are some good opening $5s from the last three sets + 2e?

Sentry?
Replace?
Vampire?

Replace is not a particularly strong opener.  Sentry and Vampire certainly are.  Den of Sin is very nice on a $5/$2 (not so much on a $2/$5).

This question would be pretty darn easy to answer if SHiT made their game data public.

EDIT: Huh, guess my 1000th post is a passive-aggressive dig at SHiT :P

Avanto (super great opening buy btw)

This actually is a super great opening, because it means you somehow gained all 5 Saunas first.

Or a multiplayer game with Messenger, in which case you might have just one.

Or a six-player game where everyone else opened Sauna, and you might have none.
