Dominion Articles / Re: A Different Way To Look at Dominion

Some interesting ideas, analysis. Just a few points:
Greening (also based on point 3 of markus) has some distinct economy targets. So if you green and your econ is 10 or 11 you are at the 1prov per turn. Keep building when you are at 9-10 11-12 is a decision you often have to make go for double go for single+ ? is there a reason to go more than 8?
Another point is single gain-buy boards. In these boards p1 p2 matters when you start greening e.g. Masterpiece guildhall money board. Imagining a double masterpiece per player if p2 starts provincing first he wins. Cause he doesnt have to duchy dance and you cant follow as p1.

With the new errata overlord as tormentor (first cards played) gives hex. since it counts as overlord and then tormentor.

Another interesting case (like the bonfire above) is playing experiments first, which also gives you imp.

Quite nice play. Good use of artisans. As with the above comment sculptor is a powerhouse (so you open at 5) (especially on that board). nice trashing, nice econ understanding. Probably first buy moneylender then poacher. Trashing those coppers is important. Nice village to smithy-variant ratio. Gj!

A thing to have in mind about market is what it offers you. Market is mainly a scource of +buy ad is a cantrip. Therefore, if you are allready drawing deck and you have lets say 3 buys. Is buying a market (cantrip 0 plus cards+1money) worth it or is lets say buying village moat (+1card) better? In a way you sort of overbuilt (for your plan), you needed green faster. Also, your economy increase was lower than expected. eg. a merchant +moat is more economy than a market (all other parameters held equal). Finally, a remark on merchants, (given your opponent ended game with 2 merchants and 0 silvers). When you add merchants to a deck its often good to have extra silvers (not too many though) so that merchants are not just a cantrip. All in all though, you did well!

i think black market is indeed a very high skill and high luck card, but the skill is the main thing there. the decisions related to if you buy it, when you buy it, why you buy it, if you play it compared to another terminal if there is a collision and finally and most importantly, what you choose or you dont choose from it are extremely skill dependent and completely different on each kingdom. that being said, i dont think an article from 5 years ago, even if it is from stef which means its top notch, can be taken into full account. the evolution of dominion and i can only account for the last year and take the previous years into consideration only through articles etc, is huge and many major changes in thinking have taken place. therefore, taking into consideration the time of sth should allways be the start. finally, i would like to add that you very often see even the very top players do mistake with what they choose or dont choose from black market, so you know that is a place where a lot of improvement can be made.

Being a vassal fan, since the first time I saw vassal-sentry, I enjoy seeing these synergies. Seer is a great card and i think vassal is kinda underappreciated, so glad to see a nice 2card combo analysed.
