I think there's a "like to live dangerously" meme for that...

Game of Thrones Season 1 spoiler...  https://i.imgur.com/NElxAR0.png

Should I have just embedded this even though it's technically a spoiler?

We've all heard of the Village Idiot, but what other misplays are there in the world of Dominion?

Feodumbass - Buys Feodum on a board with no gainers, +Buy, or trashing.
Scoutcast - My baby don't mess around with Scout, 'cuz I know for sure that this card is bad.  The Scoutcast isn't so hip to the meta.
Sir Miser - If the goal of the game were to have the most Copper on your Tavern Mat, Sir Miser would be the champion.
Ducat List - +5 Buys and you still only made $7 on your last turn...
Mineumint to Folly - Just think of all those Gold I can Mint!  I just need to buy one to replace the one I just trashed first...
Tunnelcake - So your plan was that you were going to cross your fingers and hope to draw two Tunnels and your Count every shuffle.  Ok.
Lost in Transmutation - There's a reason ScarJo won't play Dominion with Bill Murray anymore.

Highway to Hell - Gets what amounts to a bunch of expensive Poachers as there's no +Buy.
Cellar Dweller - So should I discard the Cellar to the Cellar, or should I keep it in case this Cellar draws another Cellar I want to discard? I wouldn't have bought so many of these, but I had a lot of junk...
Prince and the Pauper - Gets Prince on impulse without even checking if there are any good $4 or less cards.
Settler for Less - Opponent grabs all of Bustling Villages because you spent all your time trying to uncover them instead of building a good deck.
Trader to the Cause - Now how do I get rid of the Silvers?
Das Capital - Debt is scary but I really need the +Buy.
Wolf Den in Sheep's Clothing - Hey, I can win by a point if I also buy an Estate...

Why-house: Like Cellar Dweller, but with Warehouses.
Charity Worker: Buys Bishop solely for trashing.
"Get Rich Quick" Victim: Tries to get Golds with unsupported Transmutes or Treasure Maps instead of building up economy to just buy them.

And some broader categories:
Rat King: Always plays as many action cards as possible, even if they're likely to do more harm than good.
Try Everything: Buys some of every Kingdom card without any coherent plan to use them together (or variety rewarders).
Easy Reader: Ignores any cards with too much text, regardless of how simple they are in practice ("I have $5 and need more draw. I hear Journeyman is good for draw, but I can't be bothered to read all that text, so I'll just get a Smithy instead.").
The Berserker: Solely focused on playing as many Attacks as possible, ignoring things like greening and non-Attack payload (since those slow down the Attack engine).  Because if I hit you with 8 Spy attacks per turn and you never score a hit on me, that means I'm winning, right?

Gone Meta - Salvage your Salvager.  Warehouse your Warehouse.  Remodel your Remodel.  Chapel your Chapel.  Sage your Sage.  Island your Island.  Junk Dealer your Junk Dealer.  Sometimes, using a card on itself is a sign that you're not playing optimally.

Try Everything: Buys some of every Kingdom card without any coherent plan to use them together (or variety rewarders).
I've gone through a few strategy phases. My first was to never buy any Action cards unless it had a + amount on it. (To be fair, I only had 1E base game back then, so I did win a lot). My second was this, which is the polar opposite, as soon as I discovered that "Hey, Action cards exist too and are actually kind of fun!" I stopped winning around that time. I don't think I ever made a definite transition from this into actually building good engines; I think I just sort of gradually refined it. Now I win again.

Easy Reader: Ignores any cards with too much text, regardless of how simple they are in practice ("I have $5 and need more draw. I hear Journeyman is good for draw, but I can't be bothered to read all that text, so I'll just get a Smithy instead.").
This is everyone else in my family. Even after I explain that Journeyman is really just a Smithy that can skip over a junk card of your choice.

Doesn't Know Jack - Wow, this card is kind of dull and skipable.
Howbow Dah? - Goes for Copper gainers on boards with no trashing.
The Barren - Buys cards that interact with Victory cards early on in a Shelter game.
Queen Fan - Promotes more than one Hero.

There's probably a "losing at Dominion" meme in the Cersei/Qyburn conversation...
