Here's a little game : try to guess the cards'names

Witchtower
Action attack reaction, $5
Draw until you have 6 cards in hand.
Each other player gains a Curse card.
-------
When you gain a Curse card, you may reveal this. If you do, either trash the gained card or put it on top of your deck.
Nuts, I guessed Watchtorturer.

Online Market
Action - $7
+1 Card, +1 Action
You may buy any number of cards this turn. Reduce the costs of all cards by $2 while this is in play, but increase the cost of the first card you buy this turn by $5 to cover shipping and handling. (The shipping cost cannot be reduced.)
----
You can't buy this if you have any treasures in play.

Scoutpost - Action - $5
+1 Action
Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Put the revealed Victory cards in your hand and set aside the rest.
----
In this turn's clean-up phase, instead of drawing 5 cards, put the set-aside cards into your hand. Take an extra turn after this one. This can't cause you to take more than two consecutive turns.

I see all your two card merges and raise you a third.

Talismandarinn - Treasure - $5
+$3
discard two cards
put a card from your hand on top of your deck
---
While this is in play, when you gain a card costing $4 or less, gain a copy of it.
---
When you gain this, look through your discard pile, reveal any number of action cards and shuffle them into your deck. Then put all treasures in play on top of your deck.

Apprenticellarmory - Action - $5
+1 action.
Trash a card from your hand and discard any number of cards then gain a card costing up to $4, putting it on your deck. Draw cards equal to the cost in $ of the trashed card, plus the number of discarded cards, plus two if it had a potion in it's cost.

Secret Chambassadoracle - Action/Reaction - $3
Look at the top two cards of your deck. Choose one: Discard any number of them, $1 per discarded card; OR reveal one of them, return up to two copies of the looked at cards to the supply and each other player gains a copy of it. Put the remaining cards back in any order.
+2 cards
---
When another player plays an attack card, you may reveal this. If you do, +2 cards then put two cards from your hand on top of your deck.

But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

Oh gosh I just noticed I said when you gain a card costing less than $4, not buy a card. Well I guess I can get away with it, since this is the terrible ideas thread.

Edit: Also that last card is missing the Oracle attack and needs to be attack type. Hmm... Each player reveals the top two cards of their deck. For each player, choose one... Vague wording hilarity ensues.

Because, man, three wasn't enough, let's try seven. I think I'll stop there. But try and guess which 7 cards make this up before peeking!

Bureaucrossroasir Vanderbalistoreroomad Camp - Action/Attack - $lots
+1 card
+$1
Discard a card.
+1 buy
If this is the first [this card] you've played this turn, +3 actions. Gain a Silver, putting it on top of your deck. Each other player reveals the top two cards of their deck, trashes one costing from $3 to $6, then puts a revealed victory card on top of their deck (or reveals a set of revealed cards with no victory cards). Discard any number of cards. +1 card per card discarded. Discard any number of cards again. +$1 per card discarded.
---
When you discard this from play, you may put a treasure card in play on top of your deck.
---
When you trash this, gain a Gold
---
When you gain this, put it on top of your deck

So, what about more ruins ?

Ruined Throne room
Choose an action card from your hand.
Play it once.

Abandoned workshop
Gain a card costing up to $2

Abandoned garden
Worth 1VP for every 100 cards in your deck (rounded down)

Bungled remodel
Trash a card from your hand.
Gain a card costing up to $0 more than the trashed card.

Ruined moat
When another player plays an attack card, you may reveal this from your hand.

Lost militia
Each other player discards down to 5 cards in hand.

And my favourite :

Lost scout
+1 action
Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Put the revealed Victory cards into your hand. Put the other cards on top of your deck in any order.

Moat should be "Dry Moat" :)

Fallen Monument
+0 VP. +$0.

(I was thinking about a playable Fallen Monument ruin, giving just VP and no cash, but it would need some penalty, Monument is $4 card and we have a ruin that is an $3 card - Woodcutter with no +$2)

Thinking about a new mechanic...

Bluffer
Treasure - $5
Worth $3
---
Whenever you want, you may play a card face down and announce that card is a bluffer. Any card can be played "as a bluffer".
Any other player can challenge you. If he does, reveal the card played face down. If the card is really a bluffer, the challenger gains a curse. Otherwise, you gain a curse and discard the card played "as a bluffer".
When there are no more curses in the supply, you can't play cards face down anymore.

Scounting house
+1 action
Look through your discard pile and reveal any number of victory cards in it, put them into your hand.

And what about some scouthief/scoutransmute ?

I've actually done this :P. It worked decently in 2 player, but was too political.

After my tournament beatdown and a couple subsequent games, I think this is an actual card:

Stef Market
Action - Reaction - Attack
This card has no cost.  It is only accessible to Stef, who automatically starts with it in his deck.

Choose up to four: Visualize the perfect engine at turn 1; automatically connect engine components for the entire game; trash any cards you don't want; or draw the perfect hand in the endgame to win by 1 point.

If goko doesn't stop crashing for me, this would be a very bad card indeed.

Fool's Golem

Otherwise reveal cards from your deck until you reveal 4 Action cards other than Fool's Golem cards. Discard the other cards, then play the Action cards in any order.
