Card text
Each other player reveals the top 2 cards of their deck, trashes a revealed Silver or Gold you choose, discards the rest, and gains a Copper if they didn't reveal a Treasure. You gain the trashed cards.

When you buy this, do its attack.

Noble Brigand is an ActionAttack card from Hinterlands. It is both a Treasure trashing attack like ThiefThief.jpg, allowing you to steal your opponents' SilverSilver.jpg and GoldGold.jpg, and a junking attack, distributing CopperCopper.jpg to opponents with Treasure-light decks. It is widely regarded by fans as an "improved" version of Thief—whereas Thief is regarded as weak because it can trash opponents' Copper (benefitting them, not the player who played Thief), and provides no immediate bonus for the turn on which it is played, Noble Brigand lacks both those weaknesses.

Noble Brigand is also the only Attack card that affects opponents immediately when it is bought.


[edit] FAQ

[edit] Official FAQ

  • When you play this, you get +$1.
  • When you play this and also when you buy it, each other player reveals the top two cards of their deck, trashes a Silver or Gold they revealed that you choose, and discards the rest.
  • Each of these players that did not reveal a Treasure at all gains a Copper from the Supply, putting it into their discard pile.
  • Finally, you gain all of the Silvers and Golds trashed this way.
  • This cannot trash any Treasures except Silver or Gold.
  • Gaining a Noble Brigand without buying it does not cause this ability to happen.
  • Noble Brigand is an Attack card, and when you announce it, players can use cards like MoatMoat.jpg in response.
  • However, buying a Noble Brigand is not "playing an Attack card," and so cards like Moat cannot respond to that.

[edit] Other Rules clarifications

  • Revealing TraderTrader.jpg to gain a Silver instead of a Noble Brigand when you buy one does not prevent the on-buy effect from happening.

[edit] Strategy Article

Originally based on the article by timchen on the forum

The initial buzz of the card is basically "Wow! ThiefThief.jpg is officially admitted as an under-powered card!" This is quite a sound statement, as Noble Brigand is pretty much better in every way except one:

Thief trashes CopperCopper.jpg and helps your opponent. Noble Brigand does not; it even stuffs Coppers to your opponent. Thief offers no immediate benefit to yourself; there is +$1 from the Noble Brigand. Thief only works when you reshuffle and draw it, but Noble Brigand acts a full reshuffle earlier, right at when you buy it. The only potential downfall is that he cannot steal Kingdom Treasures and PlatinumPlatinum.jpg.

With so many reinforcements, however, the Noble Brigand still has significant drawbacks. It is still a terminal action that does not draw any card. It provides less virtual money than MilitiaMilitia.jpg, and does not attack as reliably either. An early Noble Brigand may flip the opponent's coppers and may prove to slow yourself down from that Gold or $5 card a bit too much and accelerate your opponent at the same time. Therefore, it is not a card you will always consider to buy.

The case where Noble Brigand shines is against a standard Big Money-like Province deck - a deck whose income mostly comes from large numbers of Silvers and Golds. In this case, every successful Noble Brigand hit sets your opponent back by nearly a full turn, and there is a high chance of a successful hit since most things your opponent buys are valid Brigand targets. According to the simulators, Noble Brigand is actually a very good Big Money enabler when bought in bulk - consistent Noble Brigand plays will rob the opponent of the Golds and Silvers which are the lifeblood of a Big Money deck. Simulators will significantly overrate this card, since the further your opponent gets from a formulaic "Silver->Gold->Province" the worse the Brigand will be. Nevertheless, whenever you see your opponent spending most of their buys on Silver/Gold, you should consider Noble Brigand, and if you spend most of your buys on Silver/Gold you should expect that well-timed Noble Brigand buys by your opponent will rob you of quite a bit of that cash.

There is a niche use of the card as an opener. When you are the second player with $4 in hand in your first turn and when the first player has bought a silver (or gained one with Lucky CoinLucky Coin.jpg), you will have 1/3 chance of getting that Silver and trigger a reshuffle with the initial crappy cards at the same time. It is fun to use and see it work, but when it doesn't, you are facing quite an uphill battle. The situation improves significantly with more players though, and it helps negate the disadvantage of the third or the fourth player quite a bit. You still have to have $4 in your first hand though.

Alternatively, if your opponent started with $2, you can reshuffle those terrible cards and delay the use of their $5 buy on turn 2. If they bought a non-treasure, there is also a 40% chance of giving your opponent a Copper, which you may or may not want. The copper is great for games that will be dominated by high-value treasures or virtual coin, but without any means of trashing coppers. If Gold is the key card, your Noble Brigand's action play will continue to get used throughout the game. This situation also becomes more favorable when going last in a multiplayer game. Just be sure that you don't accidentally trigger an early reshuffle on one player's starting $5 hand.

Similar to Thief, the Noble Brigand can be quite important in a ChapelChapel.jpg game with no virtual money. But it proves to be a lot more dangerous in this case. To an unsuspecting opponent, getting one of his critical Silvers or Golds can be fatal. And you don't need to buy it and use it, so he has no alert prior to the attack. Also, the on-buy attack cannot be stopped. In addition, one can buy multiple Noble Brigands to keep the pressure in such games, as extras can be Chapeled away.

That's probably it. There is no magic to make the card suddenly powerful. I like what Donald said about the card though: it is designed to be fun. It is indeed fun to attack when you are buying a card, especially when it does not force a degenerate game like Ill-Gotten GainsIll-Gotten Gains.jpg does. For myself, better yet, it is just powerful enough to try to win using it, and still underpowered enough that when I lose with it I won't be mad about my own luck.

[edit] Trivia

Official card art.

[edit] Theme

I needed a name that meant Robin Hood without being Robin Hood.

[edit] Secret History

First the set had a ThiefThief.jpg variant that gave you $ instead of the Treasures. It only gave you $ for one of the Treasures, to keep it from going nuts with multiple players. So if the best Treasure you trashed was Silver, you got +$2. Well this has wording problems. Some Treasures make variable amounts or do weird things. At the same time, it was weak. So it died.

I replaced it with a card I stole from a later set. "A later set." There are only two sets after this one, and one of them is a latecomer with its own special thing going on. When I say "a later set," I mean the 8th set, which was originally the 4th set, back before I showed Dominion to RGG, when there were only five expansions (then Hinterland and Seaside were split up, and Alchemy and Cornucopia were split up, and that accounts for seven). You might think, with all the cards I stole from "a later set," that it would be hurting for cards, but man, it is not. Anyway. I stole this from "a later set."

The premise is of course Robin Hood. Steals from the rich (those with SilverSilver.jpg and GoldGold.jpg), gives to the poor (those with no Treasures at all). Ignores the middle-class (those showing Copper or special Treasures) (yes the middle class includes those with Platinum, Robin Hood does not realize how valuable Platinum is okay, he lives in a forest, they don't even have Platinum there). By not trashing Coppers, it avoids being horrible, and it can even give out Coppers, although don't expect that to be too common except you know against decks that trash their Coppers.

Noble Brigand comes right out of the gates attacking. This was a fun thing that I wanted on more attacks but it only survived here and on Ill-Gotten GainsIll-Gotten Gains.jpg (technically not an attack, but we all know a Witch when we see one). Maybe it's for the best that you'll never experience the joy of a when-gain discard-based attack just sitting there, promising that any hand you draw might be taken away, even if no-one has even bought the card yet.

Noble Brigand triggers on buying, not gaining. This was because you could get situations that forced you to play all further attacks in slow-mo. JesterJester.jpg is a good example. I play Jester, I hit your Noble Brigand, oh I want one of those. Only, everyone else has already revealed their card for Jester, no-one is wasting time. I know some of the cards Brigand will hit. Maybe normally I wouldn't take Brigand, I'd make you take another one, only, there's a Gold showing over there. Okay we have to play Jester in slow-mo this game to get rid of this situation. And well that's no fun. So, it triggers on buying.

[edit] Why does Noble Brigand trash and then gain the treasures?

It's all about having clear interactions with potential future cards, some of which I had already. ThiefThief.jpg steals a CacheCache.jpg; do you get the CopperCopper.jpgs? What if ThiefThief.jpg hits a treasure that does something when trashed? Thief explicitly trashes and gains so that all such future things are covered. For example for a long time HagglerHaggler.jpg was when-gain, and would trigger on stealing a GoldGold.jpg with Noble Brigand. Plus Noble Brigand wanted to match ThiefThief.jpg's wording if that worked out.

[edit] Newest wording

The original wording is no good. I can't live with it. And it's gone, treasure your collector's item first edition copies.

The new wording does something no other card does; it is not unique in that though, there are other cards that do something no other card does (for example, only MasqueradeMasquerade.jpg has the verb "pass," and it got a special separate rulebook explanation at the time, though now I'm happy just covering it in the card notes). I am cool with that. Maybe I should have sucked it up and had microtext on the card, or said "continued in rulebook." I went with something I knew everyone would understand; it's covered in the rulebook for the people who don't.

Again the cards are printed. And I mean no regrets so far.

[edit] Other possibilities

New cards are avoiding "when you buy this" period, as casual players do not sufficiently distinguish it from "when you gain this." Noble Brigand is when-buy because when-gain caused you to have to resolve some stuff in slow-mo (I play JesterJester.jpg, it hits Noble Brigand, who should gain this, but in the meantime other players have revealed their top cards). If I had to do the effect now, it would be like VillaVilla.jpg: gained to hand, +1 Action, return to your action phase, and there you go, you can play it if you want to.
