Basics
Cost: 2
Description: Trash up to 4 cards from your hand.
Usage: Chapel can streamline your deck by removing the less effective cards to leave only the best ones.  However, these optimized decks are vulnerable to attack and are weakened more (proportionately) by Provinces.

Advantages
Best With: Minion, Laboratory
  Any action card which allows you to draw additional cards into your hand (and to a lesser extent, additional actions) can help your deck realize its full potential on every turn.  Additionally, some cards can help counter Chapel's vulnerability to attacks.

Minion
  • defends against Militia by drawing four new cards
  • defends against Thief by reducing, or even eliminating, the need for treasure cards
  • works best with Festival and Market, by adding coins and buys before Minion draws a new hand

Laboratory
  • defends against Militia by drawing cards without losing an action
  • makes it easier to trash the maximum of four cards by drawing to larger hands
  • works best with Gold treasure cards

Best Against: Witch, Spy
  Chapel can trash the Curses that Witches give you, and Spy can't force you to draw weak cards if you've already trimmed your deck to contain only strong ones.

Disadvantages
Worst With: Gardens
  The value of Gardens increases with the size of your deck, so trashing cards with Chapel would decrease the value of your Gardens.

Worst Against: Swindler, Militia, Bureaucrat, Thief
  Getting hit with Militia before you've finished trimming your deck can force you to trash less cards than desired and/or skip buying new cards.  Swindler, Bureaucrat and Thief all prey upon the increased frequency of their target cards that occurs in Chapel decks.

Okay, I'm ready for the first round of feedback.  Feel free to comment on both the layout and content.

Good job! Just one question.

Are you doing the reviews on the cards (and the cards they affect) for all the cards in the game, or just what is available on BSW?
Either way, you will do fine.

Just those cards I have experience with, which for now means those on BSW.
