Could we please drop the subject? We've got enough flame wars already.

I once lost a game where my opponent put Lost Arts on Horse Traders and used Menagerie to draw back the discarded cards. It wasn't a terrific engine, but it was better than my money-ish deck.

That example might be kind of rare, but if there's trashing, a village (or "splitter" as some like to say), and good terminal payload, I think that an engine is perfectly feasible. For instance, if you have Chapel, Village, and Swindler in a game, I think that it's worthwhile to trash down and play a bunch of Swindlers per turn.

It is always blindingly obvious in context. If my writing offends you, don't read it.
No, it isn't. Especially when you're illiterate enough that you say "Msqr" instead of "MSqr".

Sure, we can all ignore you if that's what you want. But don't say you weren't warned.

Oh for Pete's sake. This is supposed to be a place to post for fun. If reading me isn't fun - STOP READING. This board takes itself way too seriously with people getting waaaaaaay too angry over trivial things. Man I miss the days when we could discuss Dominion without every thread having a scold come to tell us how we are not discussing it the right way.

It is too bad that people are so caught up in etiquette, how to be an elite player, respect fishing, and all this other BS. Just relax and enjoy discussing the game. Tolerate the people who disagree with you, be mature enough to know when to take breaks, and do not get caught up in doing it "right". This talk of having everyone start shunning is just utterly beyond reasonable.

He said, as he got angry over a trivial thing, not discussing Dominion and scolding people on not discussing things the right way.
