My worst game of Dominion was the one where I tried to clog up my opponents Scrying Pool chain with Maruader.... Ruined Market was the only source of +Buy on the board, he used it to buy an extra estate and win the game.

I'm sure it was a "greatest moment" for my opponent, if not for me.

I'm confused; how would that clog it up?  As long as they have enough Scrying Pool density to draw one, isn't the amount of Ruins they have irrelevant?

It still reduces the chance to hold a SP in hand every turn

And when SP reveals a Ruin while the next card is a non-action, not having the Ruin would have allowed you to discard the non-action your SP now terminates at. People really underestimate how bad Ruins are for a SP deck.

But still not damaging enough to prefer Marauder over Potion, I think

Right, but it doesn't seem like it would be significant enough.  Though I'm speaking hypothetically and not from experience playing Scrying Pool against Ruins.

I had to read this three times. It's a really good point and one I'd never considered.

It didn't really clog up my opponents deck which is why it was my worst game.

Again not really great but (I hope) funny. A game with Grand Market which I wanted to gain multiple times:

Code: [Select]
GwinnR plays Grand Market
GwinnR shuffles deck
GwinnR draws Estate
GwinnR plays Counterfeit
GwinnR plays Quarry
GwinnR plays Quarry
GwinnR trashes Quarry
GwinnR plays Copper
GwinnR buys Gold
GwinnR gains Gold
But Quarry does only work, when in play and not when played  :(

I build a Scrying Pool-Plaza deck, ending the game by using 1 Develop on my spare Potion and Plazas to gain a Develop and a maxed-out City, which I draw with a City, which lets me turn another Plaza into a Develop and City, which I draw with City...and so on, gaining 4 Develops and 4 Cities, which gives me just enough +Buy to empty the now considerably smaller Develop pile and pick up enough VP for the win. It's by far the most ridiculous end turn I've ever done.

I really don't think Marauder hurts SP much. Cultist, yes, but Marauder is way too slow.

Probably easier than TR/Armory. All it requires is Treasure Map and Stonemason in the kingdom, and Watchtower in hand; you can use any method you like to get to $6 in hand with Watchtower. Whereas TR/Armory requires two engine pieces to come together in hand.

My dad, grumbling about bad shuffle luck and the worthlessness of Princess, plays Princess and a silver and buys two tunnels. I say "Don't worry, maybe she'll give you the win."

He beat me by three. She did give him the win.

Mail-mi, it seems to me that part of the reason you won here was that she failed to take advantage of your bishops to trash. This was huge, it could have made her deck more scrying-pool friendly and countered ambassador's curses.

It's been a long time since I've seen an Ambassador game where there are 14 Coppers and 6 Estates in the decks on Turn 14.

Especially with Bazaar available, either of you could have absolutely thrashed the other by picking up a second Ambassador early, using it efficiently (ALWAYS send two cards. Even if they must be Copper.), then picking up Bazaars/Nomad Camps/Scrying Pools and flooding the opponent with Curses while building a power deck.

Hey, it was fun to send her all the curses.

My Hail Mary Pass of the year.

My opponent has 4 Provinces, 4 Duchies and 3 Estates.
I only have 3 Provinces, 4 Duchies and 3 Estates.
So there's just 1 Province left and 2 Estates.

If we both buy an Estate and I'm able to get the last Province, we just tie.
But that's boring.

So I'm taking a chance, I just played Tactician and got a clean reshuffle in, so what the heck?
I buy a Curse! And an Estate of course. My opponent obliges and gets the last Estate.

Then the magic happens: on my Tactician turn, I'm able to pass him the Curse, get the last Province and win by 1 point!
