Duchess > Rebuild

Obviously, Duchess is the most powerful card in the game.  Rebuild, by contrast, is weak.

Rebuild/Duchess is probably a bit stronger than straight Rebuild, anyway.

Maybe, but the key turns in this game were:

My Turn 5: Duchess - 2 Silver - 2 Copper -> Province
My Turn 7: Duchess - 2 Silver - 2 Copper -> Province

And, the final deck composition was (ignoring VP cards).

Me: 8 Duchess, 1 Rebuild, 2 Silver
Him: 2 Duchess, 4 Rebuilds, 3 Silver

I think you'd be lucky to buy even one Province with that deck, let alone two - you need both Silvers in your hand, plus one Duchess and two Coppers.

If the only engine on the board is Procession->Conspirator, I will play it.

100% agree.  This win was due to crazy shuffle luck with my Silvers and Duchesses, and a really fortunate side effect that Rebuild-Duchess can 3 pile quickly.
