Gain a Gold. Each other player gains a Curse, and if they did, draws a card.

Soothsayer is an ActionAttack card from Guilds. It is a GoldGold.jpg gainer, as well as a Curser whose attack is mitigated by increasing the hand size of anyone who receives a CurseCurse.jpg.

FAQ

Official FAQ

  • If there is no GoldGold.jpg left, you do not gain one.
  • If there are not enough CurseCurse.jpgs left to go around, deal them out in turn order, starting with the player to your left.
  • Each player who gained a CurseCurse.jpg draws a card. This is not optional.
  • A player who did not gain a Curse, whether due to the CurseCurse.jpgs running out or due to some other reason, does not draw a card.
  • A player who uses WatchtowerWatchtower.jpg (from Dominion: ProsperityProsperity.jpg) to trash the CurseCurse.jpg did gain a CurseCurse.jpg and so draws a card; a player who uses TraderTraderOld2.jpg (from Dominion: HinterlandsHinterlands.jpg) to gain a SilverSilver.jpg instead did not gain a CurseCurse.jpg and so does not draw a card.

Other rules clarifications

  • If you gain a CurseCurse.jpg and draw a Reaction like SheepdogSheepdog.jpg or Horse TradersHorse Traders.jpg, it's too late to use it.
  • Each affected player gains a CurseCurse.jpg and draws a card before the next affected player does so. This is a change from the first version of Soothsayer.

TraderTrader.jpg now exchanges the CurseCurse.jpg, so players that react with TraderTrader.jpg will draw a card.

Strategy

Soothsayer is a mediocre Curser and GoldGold.jpg gainer. Compared to other Cursers such as WitchWitch.jpg, it is generally weaker for three reasons:

  1. It lets your opponent draw a card upon gaining a CurseCurse.jpg.
  2. It provides no immediate benefit (such as draw or $) on the turn that you play it.
  3. It slows down your deck control as much as your opponents’ because a GoldGold.jpg—while much better—is a stop card just like a CurseCurse.jpg.

These factors combine to make Soothsayer’s junking easier to counter, usually by using trashers, meaning that its role is particularly heavily dependent on other characteristics of the Kingdom.

In Kingdoms with weak or non-existent CurseCurse.jpg thinning or Attack immunity, Soothsayer performs similarly to other junkers, and playing it early and often can reduce your opponents’ deck control, money density, and overall VP. Gaining a copy early can be a good idea in such situations, and if the deck control tools are weak this can lead to a slog. Sifting, such as with WarehouseWarehouse.jpg, can be particularly effective, because the difference between your best and worst cards is large due to the GoldGold.jpg gaining, and the associated cycling can allow you to play your Soothsayer more frequently.

If it’s relatively easy to deal with Soothsayer’s CursesCurse.jpg, it functions as a GoldGold.jpg gainer with a minor attack. In this role, Soothsayer can be used to ramp up your payload, and is most effective if you have some overdraw to gain-and-play the GoldGold.jpg. Aside from use as payload, the gained GoldsGold.jpg can also be used to feed trash-for-benefit effects such as RemodelRemodel.jpg. When used in this way, Soothsayer is best added in the midgame, after you have established some deck control and can handle an influx of stop cards. While giving your opponent free draw to gain your GoldGold.jpg is undesirable, this is somewhat offset by the CurseCurse.jpg which your opponent will likely have to draw to trash, and can be mitigated by using a discard attack such as MilitiaMilitia.jpg.

Trivia

Official card art.

It is notable in being the only Curser card that does not reflect the theme of its expansion.

Secret History

I had tried "gain a GoldGold.jpg, they gain a CurseCurse.jpg" in Alchemy, but it was a poor fit for a card with potion in the cost. I tried it out again here with the Council RoomCouncil Room.jpg penalty. It worked fine, but some people complained about how bad the card got when the CursesCurse.jpg ran out. Wei-Hwa suggested having it not give them a card unless they got a CurseCurse.jpg, and there you have it.

Retrospective on complexity

I'd drop the "who did" on Soothsayer. "Gain a GoldGold.jpg. Each other player gains a CurseCurse.jpg and draws a card." The "who did" is there because there were complaints about the card going dead eventually. The apparently tiny amount of simplicity to be gained is worth way more to me than getting rid of the feeling that eventually you will want to stop playing Soothsayer.


As an experienced player, it's easy to see the benefit of a card being at a slightly better power level, and easy to see the benefit of a card being slightly more interesting. It's hard to see the benefit of a card being slightly simpler. Being simpler is just drastically more valuable to the game though. Dominion is played by normal people. This case is particularly crazy and well I struggle not to discuss strategy. The extra text wasn't possibly worth it, that's how I see it.


Soothsayer has no obligation to max out how good it is in all situations. If you stop wanting to play it with no CurseCurse.jpgs left, due to the card still going out, that's fine. I want the card to be simpler; if I didn't care about that, the game would be unplayable. We can endlessly do this for any situation; it's Dominion. Of course there's nonzero value to that clause for players of Soothsayer. That has nothing to do with why that clause is a mistake.

Yes there will be a certain amount of complexity. That bit on Soothsayer was a poor place to spend complexity points. It did not make the card all that complex, and was still a mistake. It's the natural way of all cards, to become more complex during playtesting. This card isn't fun enough; add some text! It's a little too weak... some text to make it more powerful! Or too strong, make it weaker with text. You can't just change the big numbers; there's a huge gulf between +$1 and +$2 and so on. So, complexity. And it all adds up to unplayable complexity. You have to rein it in everywhere you can.

Soothsayer was totally fine. One person complained. I thought sure and changed it. It was a mistake; it doesn't happen enough to justify the extra text. There's a chart and everything.


Retrospective on power level

I think the power level of "Gain a GoldGold.jpg. Each other player gains a CurseCurse.jpg and draws a card" is fine. It's weak for a Witch and man, it's nice to have some of that in the game.
