And the deserter is currently my favorite convicted. When you have a lvl5 barracks and can get a free arquebusier or heavy infantry every round, that saves you a ton of expense. Currently playing a 2p with deserter sorcerer combo and the Barbarians are shaking in their boots.
Agreed. The Smuggler and counterfeiter are also awesome (especially when they are both in the same game). Turning 3 wood into gold is super sweet! (as is collecting 8 wood in one action!)
