I haven't seen any simulation data comparing Watchtower to Smithy/Envoy, so I can't speak to that. Council Room and Library are indeed both powerful, but a) they are 5 cost cards that I wouldn't likely buy with a 5/2 split, so I see them as more mid-game cards than starting cards, and b) they depend on the board more than many of the listed cards. The comment about Prosperity cards in general seems fair, though; I'll edit to add a few of those cards in.

Treasure Maps are a high risk, high reward strategy. You need to buy at least two (usually 3 to have a good chance of drawing them together), which means that you are using a lot of early turns buying Treasure Maps and waiting for them to be shuffled into your deck. If they hit early, it can be hard for an opponent to overcome that advantage. But, if they don't hit, your odds plumet. Without +cards or substantial trashing, I would not suggest this strategy.
