It was removed from the second edition of Dominion.
- The gained card goes into your Discard pile.
- It has to be a card from the Supply.
- You cannot use Treasures or previous Actions (like the Market) to increase the cost of the card that you gain. from
- If you use Throne Room on Feast, you will gain two cards, even though you can only trash Feast once. Gaining the card isn't contingent on trashing Feast; they're just two things that the card tries to make you do.
As a terminal shuffle, Feast has a very limited set of use cases. Most of the time Feast can be viewed as a consolation prize for failing to generate that won’t benefit you until after 2 shuffles.card that is typically used to gain a card that you won’t see until your next
The first use case is in the opening, where Feast can guarantee a card, provided it does not bottomdeck, i.e. fail to show up in either your turn 3 or your turn 4 hand. Assuming you have a 12-card deck at the end of turn 2 by also opening with a Silver, there is about a 95% percent chance of being able to buy or gain a card on one of these turns. A Silver/Silver opening, for comparison, has about a 91% chance to afford a card, so opening Feast/Silver is a slight improvement, and often you have the option of buying a or card (which might be Silver) on the same turn as you play your Feast, resulting in almost identical decks for both openings by the end of turn 4. Additionally, Silver/Silver has a 15% chance of being able to get 2 cards, while Feast/Silver has a 33% chance. Otherwise, the main appeal of opening Feast over Silver is that it can help you avoid adding Silvers to your deck while still getting an early card. This may be useful if there’s an appealing or card which doesn’t help you hit , such as Pixie. The main drawback of Feast over a second Silver is a reduced chance to hit higher price points such as or in the early game.
The other use case for Feast is with a card that can exploit its unconditional gaining: Feast still lets you gain a card even if you play it without trashing it, so cards such as Throne Room, Necromancer, and Command cards can take advantage of this to repeatedly gain cards.

- After Donald X. made this post, Way of the Butterfly was released, which could be considered a Feast replacement in that it can provide the core functionality of Feast to any Action card that costs and comes from the Supply.
