I had a great time with Procession/Fortress/Livery vs. the rat. I failed to notice Wall was there, but hey you can have all your horses run off on the last turn. Just be careful to not play all your liverys on the last turn in a wall game.

Commerce and Livery have a funny interaction. Livery gains Horses which is an extra card for Commerce to count, and then Commerce gains a lot of Golds which means you gain a gorillion Horses.

Same with Livery and Populate.  With a few Liveries in play, it's not hard to gain nearly 40 cards with one click.

Just think of what you could so with Commerce, Populate, and Livery.  Play (at least) three liveries.  Have $15 to spend and two buys.  Buy populate.  All the kingdom cards happen to be Action cards costing $4 or more.  Get 30 Horses (3x10) emptying the pile.  Buy Commerce.  You've gained 11 differently-named cards (the 10 cards Populate gave you + Horses).  Gain 11 Golds

You've just gained 51 cards in one turn with just two buys!

Mastermind+Bridge is pretty crazy, it's way easier to line up than KC/Bridge. Just emptied Provinces in 11 turns without any crazy engine.

One way that would be possible: Kingdom is all Action cards, with at least 8 being $4 or more, plus Snowy Village.  You play Snowy Village + 4 Liveries, with a Gold in hand.  4 Liveries = $3 each * 4 cards = $12.  Snowy Village gives you an extra buy, and the Gold gives you an extra $3, so you now have $15 and two buys.  Then Populate gives you 10 cards, 8 or 9 of which trigger Livery's bonus.  Since there's only a total of 30 Horses, it doesn't actually matter whether it's 8 or 9 that are $4 or more.  You can't actually gain the 32 or 36 that the math would give you

Now I want to see this game with Tower and Triumph also in the kingdom.

Mastermind + Livery is a nice combination that came up in a game I just played.  +$9 gives you enough for a Province even without any other money!  PLUS at least three horses - more if you have a source of extra buys, although there weren't any in that particular game
