The bad trashers
« on: February 06, 2023, 08:24:05 pm »

Hey there,

we're a group of 3 german people, playing dominion real life all time. Its fun. Only 2 exp at a time. This time we are on Cornucopia vs. Hinterlands (2nd edit old cards, but no 2nd ed new cards.

What to do here:

  • duchess
  • fools gold - bane
  • hamlet
  • develop
  • young witch
  • horse traders
  • silk road
  • haggler
  • cache
  • hunting party
  • farmlands

Everyone starts farming fools.
So with this, witch is useless.
Only one trasher and very slow cant guarantee a solid engine i think. So you would go hp with htraders or even cache, that you can use as alternative gold, the 2 coppers were skipped anyway.

HT is very bad when collected fools golds.

I don't have too much experience with 3p games, but Fool's Gold without trashing seems very slow here, especially if you're going to split them between 3 people. And Fool's Gold antisynergizes with Hunting Party.

The most straightforward strategy here is Haggler + Hunting Party stack. That provides a decent baseline, and Hunting Party can deal with Curses decently. I would still get a Develop to thin out the Estates and potential incoming Curses. That's 2 terminals, so a Hamlet should also be in the deck, which has the added bonus of providing +buy.

I'd probably open Develop first and then wait and see if people go for Young Witch; if they do, I might add a Fool's Gold, otherwise just Silver.
