I recommend you always place the first card of the combo (alphabetically) first, and then sort alphabetically?  Maybe it'll look good!

Just clean up some of the typos...

There may be others.

Nicely done.

Some ideas more than suggestions for grouping them into amore readable structure:

- break into "within set" and "across set" combos
- break out 3-card+ combos into a separate section
- have a standard order of listing the combos. I like (1) alphabetical order, (2) list highest cost card first (lowest cost card first works equally well, just as long as there is a standard)

Great work!

The link to three two-card combos should either go in the two card section or have the thread linked three times in the two-card section. There seems to be no reason for it to be in the three-card section.

Treasure Map / Warehouse
That is a card article, not  combo article. It is about Treasure map, not its synergy with Warehouse.

Huh?  Sorry, I don't follow...

Sure it's a card article, but the two cards still make a decent combo, no?  I mean, how different is it from Ambassador / Fool's Gold?

It's different because the article you linked to is not about the combo, whereas the article linked to about Ambassador / Fool's Gold is an article about the Ambassador / Fool's Gold combo.

You know what awesome, obvious combo doesn't have it's own article yet? Vault/Tunnel. But I'm not sure there's that much to say about Vault/Tunnel.

1) Buy a Vault
2) Buy a lot of Tunnels
3) Profit

I counter with "wait for your opponent to buy a Vault, buy a lot of Tunnels.  Profit."

I think the wiki should probably become the canonical place for this list.

there are probably a bunch of solid counters missing from the list. the list is only combos and counters which have had articles (or discussion threads) written about them. if something is missing go ahead and add it to the wiki.

I think it's more general than that - Fortress is a counter to trashing attacks in general, and in this case KC/goons/masq is acting like an attack which is trashing your deck.

That's true, and probably the general defensive use should be in the Fortress article, if there is one.

However, given the devastating effectiveness of KC/G/M, knowing a possible counter to it is useful.  At least... for those of us who aren't playing on Isotropic.

Treasure Map / Warehouse

Since i'm planning to get seaside next, and that treasure map fascinates me somehow, how about :

Treasure map / native village ?

Has anyone tried this method yet ?

[Edit]

Ah i see the problem now.. you have to set aside the top card of your deck, which obviously you don't know what it will be..

How about something simple ... Hoard + Gardens ?

I'd expect that this is mediocre at best.  Hoard is expensive so you can't get it very quickly, and Gardens is cheap so you don't need the Gold gaining from Hoard to buy it.  The main function of Hoard would be as a gainer, but the cost means that you won't be able to buy many of them soon enough to matter.  Many viable Gardens strategies will want to rush a 3-pile ending and thus have no time to pursue Hoard.

I mean, it can probably work on some boards, but I don't think it would be all that amazing.

Hoard + Gardens isn't really a rush and it isn't really that simple, either.

I remember a game against ehunt I think in the DSC where I played Hoard/Gardens/Royal Seal.  It was extremely powerful and to this day the only time that I have achieved the Bominator CR achievement.
