 Official FAQ
- Each purchase of Delve gives you back the Buy you used on it.
- For example, if you have , you can Delve, then Delve, then buy a card for .
Delve can get you 3 Silvers in the opening, giving you significantly better odds of hitting 5, 6, and 5 twice on turns 3 and 4 than most other openings. This is especially relevant in games where you can use the extra Silvers profitably later, either via trash for benefit or because the board is weak and Silver is likely to remain an above-median card in your deck into the endgame. Delve is fast enough that it can occasionally enable a money strategy to beat a weak engine, but don't let it trick you into not building a deck if there's a deck to be built.
Delve is notably strong with Feodum, and can sometimes even be played as a monolithic strategy. This has been benchmarked as follows:
Turn 11: 0 piles, ~27-30 VP Turn 13-14: 1 pile, ~50 VP Turn 23-24: 3 piles, ~115 VP Tip: Start greening on turn 6
