Am I the only person who thinks that lurker/hunting grounds is easily the most broken combo in all of Dominion?

It's not that broken, because it enables the Lurker+gaining free Hunting Grounds from the trash combo for your opponent and if it's an engine board, that probably beats the Duchy rush.

Actually R-man is right, lurker-hg is quite tough to beat. Idk about most broken combo, but it's pretty high on the list.

Lurker+free HG from the trash is even tougher to beat.

i somehow beat the player who got free Hunting Grounds with their Lurkers every time by just gaining free duchies. But that might be just me.

Serious question: How many of your engine games score 30 points in 9 turns?

Many of them buy at least one Hunting Grounds in 9 turns, which makes the Duchy rush a lot slower than 9 turns.

you need to buy 3 HG to really slow the rush down.

The Lurker/HG player can also pivot to 3-pile on Estates/Lurker/HG instead of Duchy/Lurker/HG if they recognize they're going to run out of time, so it only slows down when the 3 pile happens. You still need to score enough in time as well.

There was a Lurker/Fortress/Advance/Hunting Grounds board I watched once, with engine vs pure Lurker/HG rush, and the Lurker/Fortress/HG engine got the win, but was only about 1 turn ahead. I am not optimistic about many combos outdoing what you could do there.

I uh really don't think you have as complete of a grasp of the combo as you think you do, if you feel like buying a single Hunting Grounds stops it from working.

\_(ツ)_/ I can beat the rat in 9 turns with the combo but I always got rekt when I tried playing it on ladder, i.e. mostly against people who were lower rated than I was at the time.
