MintMint.jpg and Fool's GoldFool's Gold.jpg is an incredibly fast combo that jumpstarts your deck and can easily win the Fool's Gold split. Nomad CampNomad Camp.jpg plays similarly with Fool's Gold, but is not quite as fast, and can't trash your initial CoppersCopper.jpg.

[edit] Article

The strategy is quite simple - if you have the good fortune to open $5/$2 on a board with both of these cards, buy them on your first two turns. You will now have a deck consisting only of Mint, Fool's Gold, two Coppers, and three EstatesEstate.jpg. The likelihood of drawing Fool's Gold with your Mint is now incredibly high, and you can typically both buy and Mint a Fool's Gold every turn for a few turns. Once you have most or all of the Fool's Golds, just start buying Provinces; your opponent will most likely still be trying to cobble their deck together, and will not be able to contest you.

The combo can still work if you don't open $5/$2, but it will obviously be rather slower, and a bit more difficult to pull off. With BakerBaker.jpg present, the combo is, if anything, a little bit better - you can use the coin token to hit $5 every time and you'll more consistently draw $2 in the following turns.
