With a new expansion coming out, it's time for a new edition of the most boring list: words (well, content morphemes) that occur in multiple card (well, card-shaped thing) names! A morpheme may count as the same even if it's spelled and/or pronounced differently in the card names it appears in.

mine
misery (4 if you count "miser")

Obviously "way" appears in all 20 Ways, but I'm curious, which are the other three card-shaped things that have the word "way" in them?  Is "Wayfarer" included in that list?

They/them

"Counterfeit" doesn't contain a morpheme "count".
