At first glance, the card Miser seems most similar to is {{Card|Pirate Ship}}, except for the fact that it trashes your own Treasures ({{Card|Copper}}) instead of your opponent's. This sounds like a terrible deal, but one of the reasons Pirate Ship is so weak is that it, like {{Card|Thief}}, has the very unfortunate tendency to thin your opponent's deck by trashing their Copper (although Silver, Gold, etc. could also be trashed by Pirates), thereby making their deck better instead of worse. Miser, on the other hand, helps you thin your own deck, so it's a lot better in that sense.

Of course, Miser is not a power card, because it's pretty slow; (pseudo-)trashing only one Copper per play is rather lackluster. At least something like {{Card|Trade Route}}, also a single-card trasher, can trash any card, not just Copper, and it's cheaper on top of it. By the time your Miser reaches +{{cost|5}} or more, your [[Big Money]] opponent might already have won. The thing to take away from this: don't use Miser unless you have a plan to utilize its slow, large Pirate Ship-like benefit later on in the game.

So how to do this? Not unlike cards such as {{Card|Mine}} and {{Card|Taxman}}, which are also difficult to use but not terrible, Miser gets exponentially stronger if you can play it more often. Your deck will be thinner quickly, and you will be able to use Miser's ability to your advantage.
