Was going to complain about the on-gain, then noticed which thread I was in.  And that's before I even noticed the card name (after wondering what was going on with the overpay choice).

Masquerade In Blood
Action - $3
+2 Cards
Each player (including you) reveals a card in their hand and decides whether the player to their left discards the revealed card or trashes it.

And it's not even considered an attack card.

Don't you know, players are only able to trash or discard their own cards. I just suck at wording Dominion card. I just didn't want to say "the player to their left" twice in the same sentence.

Yes, it has the "The Romans befriended the Gauls, but they slew them" problem. So what, lern 2 context

But that's not in the rules, that's only a result of no card actually doing so.

This doesn't do what the card wants to do (wrong direction) and the context problem can be avoided. A legitimate solutions would be:

"Each player (including you) reveals a card from his hand and either trashes or discards it (the player to his right decides)."

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

Why should the card want this direction?  I don't see any obvious gameplay reason to go counter to Contraband, Envoy, and Advisor.

It is a bad idea to argue over the rules, so this thread is the best thread for that.

No gameplay reasons, i just wanted a complete translation of the original card. Which was pretty nit-picky, if i think about it.

That would do the trick. I didn't mean to pick the opposite direction as contraband and such. I'm just used to seeing "left" on the cards
