Should I trash copper or silver with Mine?
In dominion you have the option when the Mine cards are in use to trash a treasure and put a treasure worth 3 more in your hand. In effect you can remove a copper form the game and gain a silver, remove a silver and gain a gold etc.
Is there a statistical benefit to rushing towards gold/platinum?
Is it best to get all of your copper pieces into silver then into gold. Or should you focus getting to the highest possible denomination, and keep coppers in your deck (until you have nothing else to Mine besides copper)?
Something tells me one is better than the other due to the number of cards one strategy leaves you with, as opposed to the other.
