Gladiator to trash a Gladiator from the supply and buy a Fortune?

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

So, all the kingdom has is 10 piles, all of which are pure actions. I have no gainers in my deck whatsoever and Deluded. Still in the end of this very turn, I return Deluded and still buy one of the cards from the supply of these 10 piles. Which card is it and how?

I think to try to solve this puzzle we need an explanation of what "all of which are pure actions" means. If a supply pile is a split pile that contains some Action cards and some non-Action cards, like Encampment/Plunder, does that fall into the rubric of "all pure actions"? I would have assumed no, but most of the guesses so far seem to be assuming yes.

Yes, split piles count and the answer above is actually what I had in mind, so it is correct.

Once per game or once per time you play it?

Do you mean replay?

And is it Farmer's Market, when the first play puts the fourth VP chip on the pile?

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

Here's a relatively formulaic challenge which I present mainly for amusement value:

Play a Smuggler before the player to your right has had a turn.

Play Pouch, Cursed Gold, 3 Coppers. Spend Baker coffer, buy Borrow, Innovation, Smugglers.

Play Pouch, Cursed Gold, 2 Coppers. Buy Innovation. Advance Necropolis into Smugglers.

Nice! Renaissance makes that a whole bunch tidier; I assumed one would need to go the more convoluted Villa route.

Tragic Hero

Not necessarily, if you play it originally with only one other card in hand. (e.g. Festival*3 then Tragic Hero)
