We made this game

We made this game specifically to make the coppersmith as useful as possible. Conclusion: it's a useless card, except for maybe the first two turns.

Prove me wrong! I'd be delighted.

We made Hustleville,

We made Hustleville, Hustleville Community College and Uprising in Hustleville for a similar test. All three of these games play excellently with the coppersmith as I recall.

An option to sort the cards

An option to sort the cards by set would be awesome.

If you have the others

If you have the others expansion (mainly Seaside, Prosperity and Hinterlands), you'll know you're wrong. Here, coppersmith is pretty useless, but with cards like Tactician, laboratory, bank, King's court, Ill-gotten gains, Couting houseā€¦ Coppersmith is amazing.

With only the base set and Intrigue, the true power of coppersmith is in a laboratory engine, or in a village-smithy/council room/library/nobles/torturer/any drawer engine. Spy also can help a bit.

I only have Intrigue right

I only have Intrigue right now.

The real thing to remember is

The real thing to remember is that coppersmith is nice in action/draw engine, like (in itrigue) mining village + Torturer, or a simple nobles chain. Taking one or two coppersmiths help and make the strategy even faster.

Wife and I tested Coppersmith

Wife and I tested Coppersmith here and in most of intrigue without big draw to increase hand size it's a pretty bad buy. Shanty town for actions, courtyard and masquerade and bm deck is all you need to win this kingdom...
