Operation: edge case: Find a case where you'd actually want to trash the Cache and topdeck two coppers. I think I can do it, although explaining the topdecking is a little harder.

Some crazy Apothecary engine (maybe with Coppersmith?) where Cache will just get in the way but you're happy with some more Copper.

Why topdeck?  Maybe you gained the Cache midturn somehow and will be able to draw those Coppers into your hand?  Or hey, a bit better -- you ARE using Coppersmith, and you've already played Scheme-Coppersmith.  Now you topdeck your Coppersmith with two Copper or better.

Probably needs some finesse to make this convincing, but it's a start. :P

You already have lab, KC, coppersmith in your hand, a spare action to play them, and some spare buys to make use of the kc-coppersmith you'll play afterwards. You  have no other card draw. You're gaining the cache mid-turn via something, you trash the cache because it'll just get in the way of your engine which relies on kc-coppersmith for money, you top-deck the coppers so that you can play your lab to draw them to have a guaranteed $8 more to spend.

You've got a bunch of Gardens and need two cards to bump them up, but you don't want the Cache in your deck because your opponent has a Possession thing going and can buy a Province with your deck if you have the Cache in it?

Operation: edge case: Find a case where you'd actually want to trash the Cache and topdeck two coppers. I think I can do it, although explaining the topdecking is a little harder.
You have Tortured your opponent down to 0 cards in hand, topdecked a Forager, a Fortress and a Native Village (mat contains 10 King's Courts and nine Foragers) with Courtyard and need to buy 4 Provinces to end and win the game. The trash contains a Copper and a Silver. You need to trash the Cache for the Foragers to produce enough $, and even though you probably won't need to topdeck the coppers, doing so will ensure that you will have the required $32.

How do you topdeck 3 cards with courtyard? And why not trash cache with forager?

I'm still recovering from the over 4-hour concert that I played at yesterday, and apparently it shows. Then let's say you've topdecked them with Armory instead. If you topdeck Cache, your hand will be either Cache, Copper, Forager, NV, Fortress or Cache, Copper, Copper, Forager, Fortress (with NV on top of the deck) and unless I fail to see something here, the first alternative will make $31 unless Fortress draws you $ because there is no second copper, and the second alternative will force you into playing the Fortress, and then you'll have to trash the coppers and some Foragers, which won't be enough for 4 Province buys either.

Two things recently for me: I was playing on Isotropic in a tired haze in the morning and three(!) times clicked for a copper when I wanted silvers.

Last night, I bought an Expand /w $7 instead of picking up a KC. Lost the game because of it.

HP + Conspirator game. I think we evenly split the hunting parties, but I start getting provinces a turn earlier so should be in line to win. A few turns later I have $2 and $5 in coins and one spare HP left and am like "eh, that's $8, already have all my green cards in my hand, might as well leave whatever is on the deck"

(then I drew SCCEE so all hopes at splitting the provinces were gone)

You play a Warehouse.
... You draw a Copper, a Warehouse, and a Gold and get +1 action.
... You discard a Curse, a Cutpurse, and a Copper.

If you wonder where the misclick there is: apparently I misclicked by posting it in this topic, so I guess it counts? Anyway, I removed and posted it where it belongs. Qvist, can you upvote there again? :P

Nords3X4 gets +1 action and +$1 from the Fishing Village.
Nords3X4 plays an Envoy.
... (Nords3X4 reshuffles.)
... drawing 2 Coppers, a Chapel, and 2 Estates.
... discarding a Copper and putting the rest into the hand.
Nords3X4 plays a Chapel.

So yeah, Copper was not what I meant to force him to discard there...

You only follow the rules of games you're playing; both playing and not playing are internally consistent.

I stopped playing the game after I won it for the twelfth time. It gets kind of boring after a while.
