Doesn't emptying the Silver pile seem a little excessive if it's just a Province game?

That's a good point. Getting all Silvers even allows to pile Colonies. For Provinces, getting roughly half of the Silver pile is enough, which allows to get all Provinces by turn 14.

Guildhall + Beggar

Even without +Buy or other help, these two together can make for a surprisingly fast Province rush.  Guildhall gives you +1 Coffers every time you gain a treasure, which means Beggar essentially reads +$6.  There's probably some optimization here that I haven't figured out yet, but the basic strategy is to open Beggar-Beggar, buy Guildhall with your first $5 (which should be very easy with a Beggar play), then buy Province every time you play Beggar, and buy extra Beggars on hands without Beggars.  I can usually get 7-8 Provinces in about 12 to 13 turns, and I've had a few games where I emptied Provinces by turn 10 or 11.

On a related note: Guildhall + Masterpiece
Buy Guildhall with your first $5, then Masterpieces, overpaying as much as possible. Uncontested, Silver runs around turn 8, afterwards you can easily buy a Province per turn. In a mirror, Silver runs around turn 6-7, and the game ends by turn 10 or 11. Obviously Gardens and Feodum love this.

Just played a game with Black Market and Capitalism. Got Tactician, Storyteller, Scepter, Conclave from the BM. It was pure madness.

Salvager and Mercenary also become Treasures by Capitalism, both of them work very fine.

Mandarin lets you scheme all those Treasure Actions in play.

Cemetary and Changeling

Buy Cemetary, trash some stuff, then exchange the Cemetary for a Changeling.

The video is indeed weird. But the promoted thing, a German-Austrian Dominion Championship 2019, actually sounds kind of fun. Players are required to represent one state (16 in Germany, 3 in Austria), and the best 4 players from each state will be invited to the final tournament.
Guess I want to take part now.  ???

Storyteller + Raid

Use the Storytellers and Silvers to draw a lot, then get many more Silvers. Works best with Copper/Estate trashing and +Buy.

Who said you couldn't have both Vassal AND Herald? ;)

Whoever said money couldn't be great payload - was wrong.

Code: [Select]
19 actions, 19 buys, $95.
P plays 25 Silvers and 15 Golds.
P buys and gains 8 Colonies and a King's Court.

Other cards involved: Torturer, Market Square and Trader.

Lurker + Cultist

Trash a Cultist, draw 3 cards (= 2 Lab plays)

Lurker + Fortress

Trash a Fortress, put it into your hand and play it.

Donate + Market Square

Spend your first turns buying Market Squares. Then buy Donate, trash the Estates and most of the Coppers. Repeat once or twice, then start greening.

I could repeatedly end the game by turn 11 with 5-6 Provinces. With a single Wharf, I got 6 Provinces by turn 9. Grabbing any sifter along the way can help.

Is Artificer the only non-terminal Discard-for-Benefit card?  I can't think of another.

Hamlet?  Another card that has pretty good synergy with Menagerie.

Cellar, but it draws so it's not quite as great with Menagerie.

Warehouse and Oasis can work as well, but usually they need at least some support.

Artificer/Poor House. This seems like a killer combo. Discard hand, gain something good, play remaining Poor House for an extra $4.

Played a game with Artificer/Library recently. THAT was nice.
I guess Artificer is often strong when you want reduced hand size. Should be really good with Menagerie for example.

Possession kind of counters Swamp Hag, in the sense that your opponent's Swamp Hag effect ends when you possess him, because it's his next turn then.

With Dungeon, weak trashing is enough to play your key card(s) frequently.

I think the main problem is that it's coming out today only if Apple approves MF's programming, which doesn't seem that likely.

My impression was that Apple had approved by Friday, but it was too late to release it then.  Not sure why they can't just release it on a weekend, but whatever.

Probably they want to do it at the beginning of a workday, so that they can immediately do triage in case of catastrophic failure.

Like, 4 hours ago?

Sounds interesting.

I have some questions, though:

It's actually happening! Philip (SCSN) and I are building the new version of Dominion Online that will go online on the first of January 2017.

How can you be so sure about that, more than eight months in advance? What makes you sure that you'll have a working client by January that includes the intended features?

* We will never be late on releasing new expansions.

What does that mean? Will there be no new expansions? Will your platform be used for playtesting of new expansions?

I wish you the best of luck, yet it feels a bit awkward to make these kind of promises now.

This should also work well with Apothecary. Firstly, because Apothecary tends to leave green cards on top of the deck. Secondly, because with Apothecary you'll frequently spend $4p or more on Apothecary, so the extra $2 for Scouting Party don't hurt much.
