Butcher Puzzle:

What can you do with a Butcher card in your hand and no coin tokens available prior to playing the Butcher, nor any coin tokens left over after its play, that you couldn't have done if you had replaced that Butcher with a Remodel?

edit: Forgot to specify, the Butcher must get played, not Butchered by another Butcher/Remodel/etc into a card costing 7.

Trash a card gaining a card of the same value then buying a $2 card with the coins.

Throne Room/King's Court/Procession the Butcher and on the last play of butcher you can trash and gain a card costing 4-6 more than the card you trashed.

No coins are remaining after playing the Butcher, not just after the buy phase. But hyamgraff got the answer I was looking for.

Isn't there a negative money DA card that might make this happen?

You stupidly thought that Poor House would help you in a Double-Tac engine without trashing, so starting with 10 cards in hand you play 8 Peddlers and a Poor House. You then reveal your hand with the 7 starting Coppers and the Silver you bought to reach 5$ for a Tactician. After which you play your second Tactician, and end your turn with a total of 0$ to spend.

You got both.

This is true though, you have to watch out.

Or you just discard them before the buy phase.

Here's the next one:

Name the 5 single kingdom card piles, that no matter which other 9 kingdom card piles are present, can make a player get down to 0 cards in deck, discard, hand and in play.

Edit: Also no matter which cards are in the Black Market deck. It doesn't have to be a 2 player game.

No. They only work together. Not separately.
Death Cart can't get rid of your starting Coppers and Estates.
With Chapel alone you will always have at least Chapel left in your deck.
Each of the 5 answers has to work no matter which other 9 kingdom card piles are present.

Knights, Bishop, Island, Black Market, Governor.

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

Ok. I should also have had "No matter which cards are in the Black Market deck".
The others are 4 of the 5 I was thinking of, so there's still 1 missing.

I don't think Island alone works.  There are 8 available, and 10 starting cards, so you will be stuck with two coppers in the end.

It works in a 3+ player game, where there is 12 available.

And I see that I forgot to mention 0 cards in play, which would make most trashers an answer. It's now edited into the question.

So, I think technically Masq can do this.  If your opponent mirrors this in two player, and you both only have Masq, the one who plays it takes the other's last card, leaving you with nothing.

oh, I see, you meant 5 different card individually, not 5 cards in one kingdom.
