Notable Brigand
Action/Attack

+$1
When you buy or play this, the arbiter presses the "Random article" button on Wikipedia and reads the title of the selected article aloud. Each player attempts to describe the subject of the article. If any other player is judged to be incorrect, they reveal the top 2 cards of their deck, trash a revealed Silver or Gold you choose, discard the rest, and gain a Copper if they didn't reveal a Treasure. If you are judged to be correct, gain the trashed cards.
---------------
Setup: Select a neutral party to act as an arbiter.

Try this one:

+2 Cards
Each player (including you) chooses a card from their hand. After choices are made all players reveal their card, if any cards are the same both are trashed. You may gain a card from the trash.

Brutal Ritual
Brutal Advance
Brutal Delve
Brutal Banquet
Brutal Wedding
Brutal Dominate
Brutal Torturer
Brutal Summon
I looked these up to see if they happened to be names of metal bands/albums/songs.  I was pretty diappointed not to find a Brutal Banquet or Brutal Wedding.  Brutal Ritual was the only one I could find, although there's a Brutal Torture, which is close.

I did, however, find an album called Brutal Harvest.  So now I want to see that card.

I'm as disappointed as you.

I guess Brutal Harvest, if we wanted to not make it a bad Tribute, would be:


Brutal Harvest
Action - $6
The player to your left reveals the top four cards of their deck. Perform the instructions of a random Brutal effect (including those not in the kingdom) for each differently named card revealed.

Optimism – 4$
Gain a card that is not in the supply.
---
When another player plays a card that is not in the supply, you may discard this from your hand. If you do, gain a copy of it.

This doesn't do anything. Is that why this is a bad idea?

EDIT: Wait, the on-play ability doesn't do anything, either.

EDIT 2: No wait, the on-play ability doesn't do anything, but the reaction part does. If I play a Moat, that Moat is not in the supply because it's in the play area, and then you can discard Optimism to gain a Moat from the supply.

I don't see why not. Gained cards come from the supply unless otherwise specified, but this seems pretty clearly otherwise specified.

The idea was that neither the on-play nor the effect does anything, but maybe that's not how it works.

I think you have to specify the pile. "Gain an X from the X pile."

I think Awaclus is right about the reaction part, though. It should be "when another player buys a card" instead.

If it works, then it's even worse though, because you can just gain Provinces from your opponent's hand.

You can say "when another player plays a card that is not from a supply pile...".

Not sure if these have been done before, but:

Brutal Delve
Event - Brutal -  $3
+Buy
All other players gain a Silver

Emptying the Silver pile can be fun in a 4 player game.

Brutal Banquet
Event - Brutal - $4
All other players gain two Coppers and a Non-Victory card costing up to $5 that you choose.

Two Coppers and a Curse/Ruins/Copper is rather strong for a $4 event.

As Awaclus notes, “Gain a card that is not in the supply” can also be referring to specific cards, not copies of other cards.

Librarian Strike

Cost: $10

Shuffle the Supply into a single pile.  Redistribute this pile face down into 16 Supply piles, and then turn these piles face up  (so that you don't know what's under the top card of each).
