  1. About the Philosopher’s Stone. Do you count the cards in your hand as well?

  2. Cards like Workshop or Ironworks can’t buy cards with a Potion cost, right?

    1) No, you don’t count cards in hand.
    2) Correct, you can’t. The potion is a parallel cost, and X coins + a potion is not included in “up to X coins.”

    it seems like this set doesn’t play well with other sets unless you have powerful cards like alchemist most should just be ignored since the potions slow you down .
