Hireling's Guild

Goal: Get as many Hireling cards drawn at the start of each turn as you can.

Rules:
-Regular sized piles
-You determine the kingdom
-Perfect shuffle luck/you get all the cards you need each turn

My current best: 459

Setup:
Kingdom: Hireling, King's Court, Scepter, Counterfeit, Treasurer, Tiara, Crown, Royal Carriage, Smithy variant, Villager giver
Projects: Capitalism, Citadel
10x Royal Carriage on mat
1 Villager on mat

---

At the point you have enough Villagers/cards to go through with this...

Play Hireling, Citadelling it (+2 Hireling cards)
Call all Royal Carriages (+10 Hireling cards)
Use Villager, draw deck (Smithy variant KC'd a bunch should suffice for draw)

Hand after drawing: Hireling, Scepter x10, Counterfeit x10, Treasurer x10, Tiara x10
Tiara on Counterfeit, playing 5 Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters are trashed
Play all Treasurers to get back Scepters
Tiara on Counterfeit, playing 5 Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters are trashed
Play all Treasurers to get back Scepters

Hand on 8 future turns: KC, Hireling, Scepter x10, Counterfeit x10, Treasurer x10, Tiara x10 (the 52 Hireling cards from last turn should be enough to have all this)
KC Hireling (+3)
Tiara on Counterfeit, playing 5 Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters are trashed
Play all Treasurers to get back Scepters
Tiara on Counterfeit, playing 5 Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters are trashed
Play all Treasurers to get back Scepters

Hand on last turn: KC, Hireling, Scepter x10, Counterfeit x10, Treasurer x10, Tiara x10, Crown x10
KC Hireling (+3)
Tiara on Counterfeit, playing 5 Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters are trashed
Play all Treasurers to get back Scepters
Tiara on Counterfeit, playing 5 Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters are trashed
Play all Treasurers to get back Scepters
Crown all Scepters, playing them on Hireling (+20), Scepters now permanently in play

Total: 52 + ( 43 x 8 ) + 63 = 459 Hireling cards (Starting handsize of 464!)

Mostly just curious to see if anyone could beat this. Found this interaction in a random game and wanted to see how far it could be pushed.

KC Hireling with Way of Horse can go infinite, isn't it?

Or in a single turn?

This is specifically aiming for as many of the "At the start of each of your turns for the rest of the game, +1 Card." effects as can be generated. While that would work (as would WotOtter, Pig, Squirrel, etc.), that's not what I'm going for here.

Game #106908313 for an idea of how this could theoretically work. Note that I played so many Hirelings the game started to lag...

Add in Mandarin and I'm pretty sure you can go infinite in a single turn. Make your Smithy variant Storyteller so you can replay it with Scepter and draw your whole deck with the money from Treasurer. Use Treasurer to gain Mandarin from the trash, topdecking all your Scepters, Treasurers, Tiaras, Counterfeits, etc. Then Scepter your Storyteller to draw it all back, play everything again except Counterfeit, Mandarin, and a Scepter, Counterfeit the Mandarin to trash it, and repeat.
