Combo: Worker's Village and Peddler
|Worker's Village / Peddler|
Worker's Village and Peddler is a combo that takes advantage of Worker's Village's cheap, cantrip +Buy to grab most or all of the Peddlers. This works even better with Market Square, since you can open with two of them, but Worker's Village also gives your deck a solid foundation for an engine.
Normally, opening with a Village is a very bad idea; it provides no , doesn't increase your handsize, and is essentially meaningless without terminals to play off of it. However, Peddler doesn't need any to buy it if you've played enough Actions; play 4 Villages, and you can pick one up for free. But that's still a lot to go through for only one card. But if you play 4 Worker's Villages, with the +Buy, you can take 5 Peddlers. Once you have all that virtual money in your deck, along with the +Buy from Worker's Village, you can start buying whatever you want, and buying Provinces is cushioned by the sheer density of cantrips in your deck. It also provides the perfect platform for an engine: you have the and Buys to get the parts you need, and the Actions to play them.
