Forge + Cost Reduction is a trap i got in lately.

Play highway play Forge, trash 2 Rats... gain a card costing exactly 6.
On the plus side, that can be another Forge!

On the other hand, you can Forge Coppers (or nothing) into something that's actually useful.

Yeah, I actually think this is a great synergy if you plan for it.

Windfall + card drawers that force you to discard
You never actually get an empty discard :(

This thread is about to get popular.  Night cards are cray-cray.

University can't gain Raider or any night cards :(

Summon Doesn't like them either

Haunted Woods vs Night Cards

Opponent played a Haunted Woods? Better not buy anything if you want to play your Night cards.

Mint + Mine
Use Mint to upgrade your bad treasures into good treasures and make it hard to get a good Mine turn.
Use Mine to trash a lot of bad treasures in one go and leave not a lot left to upgrade with Mint.

I thought the anti-synergy was when you try to buy one and accidentally buy the other.

Oh hey, I must have typo'd a lot in my post. I accidentally wrote Mine when I meant Mint and vice versa. Isn't it funny how often you confuse the two?  :P

I wonder how many people read your original joke and actually missed the fact you really did flip them. *slowly raises hand*

Throne Herald, hit Counting House, draw all the Coppers, and then hit Royal Blacksmith with the second play.

WHy do you have both Counting House and Royal Blacksmith in your deck?

It's a super-strong synergy if you play them the other way around: Draw a bunch of stuff with Royal Blacksmith and then get back all the coppers with Counting House. The main mistake is probably using Herald for this sort of thing.

Nothing to do with the card's effects, but I just had a game with both Jester and Fool and kept getting mixed up between them in my head because they can mean the same thing...
(I played a fool thinking it would do something because my opponent played a Jester on his previous turn, which would give him Lost in the Woods -wouldn't it?)

EDIT: Thought about posting this in the "Is Fool Ambiguous?" thread, but I didn't want that thread coming up in my new replies.

Well you'll always have Bridge Troll, Ferry, or e.g. playing Bridge twice with Ghost before resolving Cobbler.

I just had what was probably my most traumatic Dominion experience ever. Yes, it was even worse than King's Court - Goons - Masquerade.

Locusts ate my beautiful goat. :'( :'( :'(
It was bloody, it was messy, and it was all my fault.

Quote

A takes Locusts

Learn from my mistake and take care of your pets, people. You can't realize how much they meant to you before they are gone.
