Once you have Ezio and Gaspar together, you can replace your sites over and over instantly, thus destroying agents extremely fast with assassin's guild and sites with Catacombs. The Lighthouse permits you to slow your opponent, or even to get his influences back to zero. You can mark with Ezio, of course, but you'll just need Romani Camp to win. 2 Romani Camps is faster, but replacing it with any cheap site will do the trick. At the worst, you can win combining Lighthouse and other sites. You can also mark via Assassin's Guild who has a 2 influence, and might be placed again over and over to destroy agents. The same way, Catacombs can steal high influence sites if your opponent has any, another way to win.
So far, it's a 19/20 win rate. I guess it's really weak against any agent rush sequences such as Nicodeck and other deceptive rushes.
Nice. Sometimes it is better to steal a site than to kill it... Secret catacombs can replace some of your Venezia.
With Gaspar you get secret catacombs back immediately and if you had a site it replaced. Meaning you can steal all sites really fast. I really love doing this to a deceptive site discard rusher. "Oh that influence 6 deceptive site is really nice. Thank you..." *waiting for opponent to quit*
... after a few tries, I put out the merchant's guild : it's useless, Romani camp is quite sufficient with the Gaspar and Ezio combination. Forum of the Oax suits better. I only have 2 at the moment, as for the Rosa di Fiore, but I'll arange that in a while
