That would actually be pretty convenient if Peddler happens to be in the game.  Automatic -$2 cost for Peddlers for every Lazy Hireling in play!

RAM Salesman
Action
Cost: $3

If you have 10 or more cards in play, remove this card from the game.  If you do, discard all your cards in play.  (Duration cards continue to perform their functions as specified, but none of the cards count as "in play" for any purpose.)

An interesting challenge with that would be to Throne a RAM Salesman then arrange to have ten cards in play when you play it the second time, so that it's only the lose-track rule that stops it going off again.

I'm pretty sure it's not possible, alas. You could use Innovation to play the Madman your discarded Hermit turned into, but I think that's as far as you can go with having discarding cause something to be played?

Mostly it's just busted with Hireling, but on any board with a strong engine you could draw your deck more than once.  I probably should change it so that it gets removed from the game so you can't truly do an infinite loop...

Sure. Drawing your deck is easy.

Drawing your deck between the first and second invocation of a Throned card, on the other hand...

Question - would something where players make a decision during set-up count?

Sure, this card is bad 99.8% of the time, but it single-handedly brought an end to the White Kobold meta, for which we should all be grateful.

I'm not sure if this is a really bad or really good card idea. So probably really bad. (-8

If you have three debt, it's effectively equivalent to a Cursed Gold from Nocturne (not having to pay off the three debt gives you $3 more to spend).  If you have more than three debt, it's better

Unfortunately, most games have no debt cards, and this card would be pretty much useless in a kingdom where you never have debt.  If it's cheap enough, it could be useful for Gardens, or as an action to bring down the cost of Peddler

On the other hand, in some games, it could be quite powerful, if there's a good card with a high debt cost.  Especially if you have a way to trash curses.  A combo with this and Watchtower would be really strong - essentially a way to gain cards like Overlord for no cost!
