A surprisingly interesting Masterpiece board

I thought this kingdom was really fun!

Without Masterpiece, this board is dull. You trash down, get some Pools and Universities, then go for single province turns gaining cards along the way.

But with Masterpiece, there's suddenly a fast way to gain multiple cards per turn. You can gain 5 silvers and trash them next turn. Tomb gives you +VP for trashing, Spice Merchant gives +Buy, and Mercenary gives the attack. So it's pretty good to buy!

It's like my favorite combo: Spice Merchant/Beggar. Tried on 100% of the boards they appear together. Worked on roughly 15%.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.
