I might be a bit biased because it's my favourite card in the game, but people need to know more about the underestimated, greatly designed (and not as greatly illustrated) gem that Chancellor is.

I actually used Chancellor quite effectively IRL today.

As you may have noticed, Chancellor is now the current FA.  If no one suggests another one, I'll just start picking ones I like, but I'd prefer to get some community input. :)

I was actually considering a Market Square article recently. Not necessarily writing one, but just what I'd like to see in it. I think one of the most important things to learn about Market Square is when to stop using the Reaction and start playing it. A lot of players are just lowering their hand size to gain Gold well into the endgame when they'll likely never even see that Gold.

yeah, sometimes it's good to get it just for the on-play, and the reaction should rarely be used after around turn 10.

Market Square doesn't really have much in the way of an article at present, so I put up Beggar instead, the other Reaction from Dark Ages.  My current thought is to feature Adventures once it's released, hopefully in March.  That leaves an open spot for February!  Feel free to nominate a card article!  Bear in mind that you're nominating the *article* because it's well put-together, and not the card because you like it.  :)

Real life as in "a physical game of Dominion," or real life as in actual real life? Did you effectively discard your hand and if so, why?

If this is real life, you may put your deck in your discard. Otherwise discard your hand.

I decided to be "clever" with the combination of this month's Featured Article and DYK.

If it means you'll stop bringing it up, I'll write an article titled "X Reasons Why Scout Is Actually Just About As Bad As Everyone Thinks It Is, But Maybe With Apothecary It Can Be Kind Of Helpful To Have One Or Two I Guess".

What are you talking about? Scout is awesome! Just yesterday i bought Messenger, gained a Scout and revealed Watchtower to trash it. Originally i wanted to buy an IGG, but then i saw that combo was even more brutal. Sadly, my opponent rage-quitted after that and now i have to leave the country :'(

There is a Scout article by Powerman already though.

Why not Messenger-gain a Curse if you're just trying to junk your opponent?

Quest is on the board.  Curse synergy, man.

The joke was that Scout was worse than Curse. It's not really a situation that happened recently. I made it up to poke fun at Scout. Also, i'm not actually forced to leave the country.

Yup and scout doesn't synergize with quest because normally it reduces handsize.
