Unbounded scoring in a single action

Demonstrate a method that can score an unbounded number of points with a single action. More precisely, your method should be able to increase a players score by an amount greater than any given N in a single action (an action is something like buying a card, playing an action, etc.).

I have one solution to this challenge; I am curious whether there are others.

You can at least do the Overlord Lurker infinite loop to gain a card an unbounded number of times and then buy Triumph.

Does reacting with a reaction card count as one action?

This works. I'm surprised I hadn't thought of this immediately.

Yes.

Does buying a temple or gaining an estate with wild hunt satisfy the requirements?

Yes, this was in fact close to what I had in mind. My intended solution was to play Wild Hunt every turn, then buy a Wild Hunt moving a point to the Defiled Shrine and return a Wild Hunt to supply with Lighthouse+Ambassador. In fact Wild Hunt alone suffices, since you can just increase the points on the pile indefinitely. Similarly with Temple. So this puzzle was in fact much easier than I originally thought.
