comment Trash an Estate or Curse your opponents? Full Version
Agreed. The question is where to draw the line. I won't bother cursing against a Chapel or a Jack of All Trades. I will certainly curse against a Remodel or an Island. I'd like a more quantitative / objective way of evaluating the choice.

comment In Guillotine, do Noble abilities work from the score area?
No, that was all shooting from the hip--which is why I only made it a comment.

comment In Guillotine, do Noble abilities work from the score area?
With Master Spy, the movement doesn't depend on where he is in line, but the key word move is the same. To be wholly consistent, it could be phrased "move this card from where it is in line to the end of the line", but I think the authors chose a reasonable, natural-sounding phrasing instead (not even assuming it was a deliberate choice).

comment In Guillotine, do Noble abilities work from the score area?
I think the word move implies a reordering, not adding and reordering. Generally, movements in line are relative to the initial placement of a card (move it forward or backward x places in line), which clearly doesn't affect cards that aren't in line.

comment Why is this NOT joseki?
@jknappen And it's not pushing from behind. That is usually used when both players have full connections (no diagonals), and usually it's not used for. In this pattern white's diagonal is very weak, as mentioned in the first diagram here.

comment Is there a strategy for consistent winning in the base dominion game with the base setup?
And, looking at the article in my answer, they run simulations and find a Village/Smithy algorithm that beats Smithy Big Money slightly more than 50% of the time.
