When you buy this, everyone discards their hand and deck. Count victory points. If you have the most, game ends, otherwise take your opponents victory cards and gain all Gold cards from the supply. Then everybody draws to five cards.

Should cost more and be an event. But I like it.

Wondering whether your gaming buddies are F.DS members? Try this:

Trash a card from your hand. Gain a card that is strictly better than it.

Good because you can get rid of junk without gaining anything!

Well it doesn't specify strictly better at the same cost, so in many cases you would!
Trash Copper, gain Gold (strictly better than Copper)!

Gold isn't strictly better than Copper. You can trigger awkward reshuffles with Storyteller and Gold is vulnerable to Noble Brigand.

And Coppersmith can make Copper more valuable!  And cost is part of being "strictly better", which is why we usually say "strictly better effect" when ignoring cost.

Gold is not strictly better 1) with Possession; 2) with Fairgrounds, Menagerie, Harvest, Horn of Plenty, and such; 3) sometimes, with Coppersmith, Counting House, or Apothecary; 4) It can be trashed by Knights and Saboteur, while Copper can't; 5) with Taxman (you might prefer to keep your Copper than discard your Gold to an opponent's Taxman); 6) with Farmland (sometimes you'd rather have that Estate than get the penultimate Province; 7)When the Golds are gone; 8 ) with Forager in hand; 9) with a draw-to-X in hand, you might prefer to discard a Copper to Cutpurse and draw another card than have the Gold.

Probably the forum can come up with dozens of other examples, but this is not the thread for that, and in any case I hope I've proved my point.

Touche, all.
Worker's Village over Village would be a bit trickier, but the Possession scenario would probably persist.

Also Upgrade and Remake. If you have 8 point Feodums and an Upgrade in hand (and the game is about to end) would you rather upgrade your Village to snag the last Feodum or upgrade your WV into a Duchy?

For Strictly Better comparisons, Possession really is 9/10 of the law.

There is a thread about this, where the delightful oxymoron "universal edge case" is used in all seriousness.  It's pretty thorough.
