Tribute.

I cannot believe no-one made the Scout joke yet.

EDIT: If we may have a 2nd option, I want to add Stash.

Didn't we all include Scout in our own submissions?

The problem is that it would overtake every other strategy making the game a luck-based run for the Scout split.

"Scout split" that is not a common phrase.

Scout split?  I assume Ambassador is involved.

In light of recent remarks, my second submission (if that's allowed) will be vagrant. I thought about EPguild, but in the end I think vagrant is more boring.

You all are picking cards that are way too interesting to be left off of everyone's submissions.  This is a card that not a single person ever thought, "Yeah, this kingdom needs X!"

Also I'll be submitting a couple kingdoms tonight if that's ok!

I've personally submitted kingdoms with most of the named cards already.

Mmm, maybe not stash. And I can't remember if I put a feast one in - I had one, but I don't know if it got through. That's a very good guess. Oh yeah, Harvest is good too.

Bureaucrat, Mine, Tribute, Fortune Teller are my best guesses. I guess, Mine.

HARVEST

Dude, I was thinking about putting harvest in one of my kingdoms! (But I've neither submitted yet nor did I include them in the final kingdoms.)

Scavenger.

But seriously, I'll guess farmland.

Even this isn't correct -- someone suggested a set with Scavenger (!!)

You all are picking cards that are way too interesting to be left off of everyone's submissions.  This is a card that not a single person ever thought, "Yeah, this kingdom needs X!"

Having not seen the kingdoms I'm going to guess pearl diver.

Ding ding ding!  Pearl Diver it is -- not one single person included it. 

It's not a terribly rich design space that they left out.  But it is down from 3/125 last year.

Just wait til The Guilds comes out, and Donald has added this card:

Pearl
Cost: $3
Type: Treasure

Worth: $0
If you move this card to the top of your deck, gain 2 Provinces.

Dang - and at some point I KNOW I had pearl diver in one of mine as 'cheap nonterminal du jour', but that probably got pushed out for something.

Edge case challenge.  Putting stashes at the bottom to fish out with Pearl Divers.  Is there a scenario in which this would be a useful strategy?

Pearl
Cost: $0
Type: Treasure

If this is the first Pearl card you've played this turn, +$4.  Otherwise, +$1
___
When you shuffle your deck, place all Pearl cards at the bottom of the deck.

(Pearl has a distinct back)

Duchess never mind. lol

But, on the topic of Pearl Diver, I think it may actually be the worst Dominion card. It really does nothing. It cantrips, and its topdecking ability is really not all that relevant. Sometimes, you get a little bit lucky and slightly change what your next card will be. I think many people don't rank it as the worse $2 card because it usually doesn't hurt to have it in your deck. But, man, that card is so weak.

Pearl Diver is one of those rare cards that you buy for the cantrip and nothing more. I haven't run into a situation where I considered the topdecking to be essential to my plan. I think using Pearl Diver to find Stashes isn't that useful; it's difficult to make a situation where you don't want to frontload your Stashes into one hand instead.

Or if they have 2 and everything else is crap.

I use the topdecking ability, but I don't get it for the topdecking ability...

Hmm ... Scrying Pool deck? Put Stashes on the bottom, then pull them up one by one as you need them (especially if you're at a stage where you're not sure if you can play all your +Buy cards).

Opponents' Top-deck or handsize attacks? Although, this would only be relevant if you wouldn't immediately draw the cards on the shuffle. And, by putting cards just after the top, you could draw the cards.

So, my edge case solution: Your opponent has a bunch of Minions and top of deck attacks and you don't know how far your deck you'll run. Also, you have a bunch of top-decking cards to take up space that Stashes would otherwise take.
