I actually hosted a s.o.u.e mafia once, but because the story was so unpleasant, I took the logical conclusion and didn't tell it past the opening flavor (somehow Lemony always decides to print his books anyway!)

Might sign in if it's still open at 5.5

I am with GendoIkari on this. Woodcutter has been removed but it still sets a benchmark for Woodcutter variants. And Feast has not been removed because it was too weak but because it did not add enough to the game. Changeling is its spiritual successor and much more interesting.

Is this always a thing? Card A looses track of card B because another card goes on top, even if card B doesn't move?

You could say that card B did move, because it doesn't have the same location anymore, on top of the pile.

Ah, theory of relativity messing up Dominion rules as usual.

But no, lose track has always applied to being covered up as much as to literal movement.

Trash this or a card from your hand. Gain a card costing exactly $1 more than it.

When you trash this, +1 Action.

----------

"It's better than Feast!" - not quite, shut up. "It's worse than Remake!" - not quite either, and don't we want most cards in between those two?

While this clearly does stuff that Remake can't do, it's hard to see how this isn't strictly better than Feast. The only thing you can do with Feast that you can't do with this is to trash it to gain a card costing less than , and it's a super-rare edge case that you would do that.

How about if it didn't allow gaining Victory cards?

Btw I'm out for this round, I couldn't think of something clever. Kudos to everyone who could.

Does it matter if a card is strictly better than one of the removed cards if it's a fun and balanced card in its own right? I guess it's up to the judge?

I mean, there's no actual rules for fan cards, but a general design principle that Donald has always stuck to is that no card is ever strictly better than another card. A card not being in second edition doesn't change that. So people are free to make strictly better fan cards all they want; but I think it's worth pointing out as a point of feedback.

Right but for the purposes of making entries for this contest do people absolutely hate it if something is strictly better than a removed card? Do people not care at all? Do people not mind so much but prefer if it isn't? I'm just interested in people's opinions.

To be fair, the card is not thronable, which is the typical use case for Feast.

Well I don't know if the wording is actually completely clear, but it seems throneable to me. It would depend on what "it" means when you choose to trash itself... when you choose to trash another card, "it" means "the trashed card". If you choose to trash itself, "it" probably means "this card", which means that the second time you play it, you fail to trash it, but still gain a card costing more; a card.
