|Gain a Silver per Silver you have in play. Each other player puts their –1 Card token on their deck.|
 Official FAQ
- This Event is like an Attack, but buying it is not playing an Attack, and so cannot be responded to with cards like Moat and Caravan Guard.
- When you buy this, you gain a Silver for each Silver you have in play; for example, with four Silvers in play, you would gain four Silvers.
- The Silvers go to your discard pile; if there aren't enough left, just take what is left.
- Then each other player puts his -1 Card token on top of his deck, which will cause those players to draw one less card the next time they draw cards; see the Tokens section.
There is no strategy article for Raid, but it has been discussed on the forum.
Like most Silver gainers, Raid is best in a Big Money or slog strategy, since that is where Silver is a good card. In Big Money, it is an efficient way to add multiple Silvers to your deck instead of just one Treasure card per turn, and it has an Attack to boot, making your opponent's next turn worse. If you happen to hit , even with only one Silver in play, the Attack might make it worth it if there are no powerful terminals you happen to want. If you hit with three Silvers in play, you should almost always buy it over Gold in Big Money, since three Silvers tends to be better for your money density than a single Gold.
Raid shines in terminal draw-Big Money games, since having a large handsize can get you even more Silvers at a time than if you're just playing with a normal 5-card hand. Do keep in mind that it gets you a very fat deck, meaning you might add an extra draw card or two compared to what you would usually do. Raid is also very good in many types of slogs; Feodum is ridiculous, of course, but the bulky deck works very well with Gardens too, and because it makes your deck very resilient to greening, Silk Road and Duke are well-supported by Raid.
Raid is not usually an engine card (well, Event), but there are a couple of exceptions. The most notable one is Storyteller, as it doesn't particularly mind a ton of Silvers in your deck. With a Storyteller and three Silvers in hand, you can draw 7 cards, increasing your handsize by 3 - the same as three Laboratory or Village + Hunting Grounds. If you happen to dud a turn, because your Storytellers got lost among the Silvers, you can probably still buy a Province. Otherwise, if you are overdrawing your deck already but still lack payload (rare, but it happens), Raid is a quick way to increase your payload. With only 3 Silvers in play, your economy can increase from to in a single turn, which is awesome if you can draw all of it. Of course, if your draw is fairly limited, you really want to look for more efficient ways to increase your economy.
- Feodum, to a lesser extent Silk Road, Duke and Gardens
- Strong draw, especially with +Buy (Council Room, Margrave), especially with Conquest.
- Compact engines with limited draw
