A random challenge

You have as many actions as you want.  You have an apprentice, pearl diver, and ironworks in your hand.  You have 3 silvers and a copper in your discard.  The kingdom is Chapel, Pearl Diver, Wishing Well, Ambassador, Ironworks,  Council Room, Duke, Apprentice, Golem, and Possession.  Assuming perfect shuffle luck, how can you get a province this turn?

EDIT:  There are no other cards in your deck and discard, just those three silvers and the copper.  Also, if you possess your opponents hand, that counts as the end of your turn, so if you haven't gotten the province by that point it doesn't count.

Two questions:

1. Can I have anything in my deck? Any other cards in my discard?

2. If I possess my opponent this turn and gain a Province using his deck, does this count as "thiis turn"? If yes, are there any assumptions about his deck?

I forgot about that.  You have no cards in your deck, and no other cards in your discard.  I'll change the first post.

I actually put possession in there as a random card, I didn't think about that.  I'll just leave it in there and say that getting a province on his turn doesn't count as his turn.

This turned out to be more frustrating than i expected :p

play ironworks, gain potion [hand: apprentice, pearl diver; discard: 3 silvers, 1 copper, potion; deck: empty]
play pearl diver, drawing potion, leaving copper on bottom [hand: apprentice, potion, deck: 3 silvers, 1 copper, deck: empty]
play apprentice, trashing potion, drawing 3 silvers, 1 copper [hand: 3 silvers, 1 copper, deck & discard: empty]
play 3 silvers and 1 copper, giving $7, for a total of $8 since ironworks gave $1 from gaining the potion


edit: and dang, I was beaten to it...

Yeah, I know it wasn't that hard, I just really liked having to use the potion when you don't want the potion cards.  It started when someone asked if you were always supposed to have potions out after we got alchemy, just for those rare chances that you could use them.  And this was what I figured out.
