EDIT 2:  Wow, it keeps getting better!  (These are all seeded with this joke, by the way:  http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=1204.msg503197#msg503197 )

I don't know whether I hate this joke or love this joke.

He points to a book. "Oh right, right, I read in an old book in my shop. It says... how to make a flame thrower." I ask Ranger. Ranger stares. "No, this thing is dangerous. The fire will be on all sides... and everyone will die."

These hurt my brain.

How so?

It takes me a really long time to solve the puzzle.  All the style changes and then having to read and translate.  It should be easy, but it's weirdly slow.

More Game of Thrones spoilers...

There's probably a "losing at Dominion" meme in the Cersei/Qyburn conversation...

"There's the Duchy pile, we can still win."
"She's already bought all of them..."

"We'll draw our whole deck this turn, I'm sure of it."
"We have $9, two buys, and two Artisans."
"But we have three Platina."
"You Remodeled two of them into Colonies, your grace."
"We'll gain two Monuments to our hand."
"That's $13, two buys, and 1 VP.  We're behind by 22 VP."
"That's impossible.  We have two Colonies."
"There is only one Colony left, your grace."

Skilled Chancellor
$3 - Action

Name a card. Shuffle your discard pile into your deck, then reveal the top card of your deck.
If the revealed card is a copy of the named card, put it into your hand, +$2, +1 Action, +1 Buy.
Otherwise, shuffle it back into your deck.

Chancellor has always been one to read the horoscopes daily.

"Ah, yes. So you should be able to put down your bag of chips. If you need that I can fill you the rest if any of us are willing. It only has to be potato chips," replied Peddler from their conversation.

"I'm in!" 

"Good." Explorer

EDIT:  Check this one with the twist ending!

The rest of Peddler's party are busy looking at some sort of equipment, and he decides to show his aid in that matter. "Look, my boy, there's nowhere in the world the Peddler has more fun when he gets to help a fellow patron in need!" - Turns out the Peddler is no more

No. "The only damn thing in the entire damned universe?" No.

"Well that is one damned stupid question." They're too busy to hear. "Yeah, well don't you know, I've been going out with a woman who, according to the FBI, has some type of magical abilities.

I kind of want to know what this would do with my forum posts, but I kind of don't want to know.

I kind of want to know what this would do with my forum posts, etc." The whole thing was pretty weird. But for a few years, I was kind of getting more and more tired of this. This blog had become really difficult, very frustratingly so. My posts had disappeared without a trace. So I started to have more difficulty writing. After some time, I finally decided to go through the forum.

The biggest problem of all was that there was absolutely no structure. What was happening was totally incomprehensible, and so for me to get any kind of clear idea about what had happened to me was extremely difficult. I remember this time really well. I was trying to explain the whole thing, with a lot of explanations, to somebody, and the replies were terrible. But I got out of that.

Then it came to me again. I really wanted to understand what was really happening, what was going on, and I was finally able to say something at times. I was able to really start to think things through and I was, at times, able to feel certain things that I didn't even even realize that I was

Well, I guess I can die peacefully now.

EDIT:  Lowered it to $2 because honestly, yeah.  Maybe $3 instead of $4 is ok, but might as well make it interesting on a 5/2?

I feel like this should have been done by now, but I wasn't able to find it.  Also, I tacked on some more mechanics just to make it more fair for some stupid reason:

Ruined Inheritance
Event
Cost: $2*

You may overpay for this.  For each $1 overpaid, you may move the top card of the Ruins pile to the bottom.

Set aside the top card of the Ruins pile and place your Inheritance token on it.
Thats not the worst idea ever. It still make estates slightly better occasionally.

The best use case is probably Ruined Market with no other +Buy on the board.  Otherwise, trashing might be more attractive, unless you have to wait for Forge.

Doesn't Know Jack - Wow, this card is kind of dull and skipable.
Howbow Dah? - Goes for Copper gainers on boards with no trashing.
The Barren - Buys cards that interact with Victory cards early on in a Shelter game.
Queen Fan - Promotes more than one Hero.

Gone Meta - Salvage your Salvager.  Warehouse your Warehouse.  Remodel your Remodel.  Chapel your Chapel.  Sage your Sage.  Island your Island.  Junk Dealer your Junk Dealer.  Sometimes, using a card on itself is a sign that you're not playing optimally.
Forever A Throne - (Stolen from the first few pages, I think)  "This is where I'd put my Action card, if I had one..."

We've all heard of the Village Idiot, but what other misplays are there in the world of Dominion?

Feodumbass - Buys Feodum on a board with no gainers, +Buy, or trashing.
Scoutcast - My baby don't mess around with Scout, 'cuz I know for sure that this card is bad.  The Scoutcast isn't so hip to the meta.
Sir Miser - If the goal of the game were to have the most Copper on your Tavern Mat, Sir Miser would be the champion.
Ducat List - +5 Buys and you still only made $7 on your last turn...
Mineumint to Folly - Just think of all those Gold I can Mint!  I just need to buy one to replace the one I just trashed first...
Tunnelcake - So your plan was that you were going to cross your fingers and hope to draw two Tunnels and your Count every shuffle.  Ok.
Lost in Transmutation - There's a reason ScarJo won't play Dominion with Bill Murray anymore.
