Trash this card

That would actually be pretty useful, though.  It's basically free trashing for Actions

Oh no wrong thread

Should be whimsically-themed card ideas?

Way of the You-know-what
Way
+1 Action
Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Put the revealed Victory cards into your hand and put the rest back on top in any order.

To OP in my opinion. You get to play any Action as a Scout.

Well, it is at least useful with Ways or cards like Peddler, Scrying Pool or Conspirator.

I actually tried to make a card like this once, but without the token and without the "Way" wording. It was a mess, but this is rather clean and useful.

So apparently Way Of The Turtle limbo lets you accomplish the same as Way Of The Dodo, except it costs an action up front, and you can eventually play the card if you want to.  Still, Ways don't really need to resolve Strictly Better Than conflicts, and the +1 Action is significant.

...anyway.

------

Way of Steampunk
Way

You may put a Treasure from your hand into play.  If you do, play an Action card from the Supply cheaper than the Treasure, leaving it there.


EDIT:  Ok.....  I actually like Way of Steampunk.  I don't even know what it would cost if it were an Action, but the handsize cost is pretty rough and I suspect it's worth somewhere between $2 and a Ruins, despite being flexible.  But it's a Way so it doesn't take up space in your deck and if you only use it once or twice, that's something!  It's not bad enough to be a ruins, but as a $1 Tourist Attraction-Action, I wouldn't ever buy it.  As a card, it would have to be a side-effect card that you get by doing something else.  But as a Way it's totally fine!

Trash this card
Fun Way and unbelievable with Fortress.  You can Way of the Dodo one Fortress an infinite number of times.  You can just keep doing it until your opponents resign from boredom.  Online, this would put the game into a state where the game never progresses but you also never time out.  If you could write a script that just keeps playing Fortress with Way of the Dodo, you could go out and get on with your life, and your opponent would be forced to resign if they ever want to play online Dominion again.

Yeah, infinite money combo given +$ token, as mentioned earlier.  To be fair, it's not my fault Fortress exists.

You can already do infinite pointlessness just with Moat. But put the +$1 token and the +1 buy token on Fortress, and you have a real combo.

-----------------
When another player plays an Attack card, you may trash this from your hand.  If you do, the Attack does not affect you.

(Yes, this extends and modifies the definition of a Way.  I trust you to interpret the intended meaning in good faith.  Change it to a new type like Ray if you have to, I don't care.)

Way of the doppelgänger
Follow this card's instructions:
The player to your right can see all cards you can and makes all decisions for you. Any cards or debt you would gain, they gain instead; any cards of yours that are trashed are set aside and put in your discard pile at end of turn.
