Chromatic Scale
Action
Play a note from hand a number between 12 and 88 times.

It's not a very chromatic scale if you're playing the same note over and over.
True, this would be better:

Chromatic Scale
Action
Reveal any number of notes from your hand. If you revealed a number between 12 and 88, play them. If you revealed less, gain a Note.

Maybe a Project that gains one and plays it each turn, keeping them in play until there are 13 and then you gain 13 VP?

Or draws 13 cards, like a weaker sinister plot

Arpeggio
Project
Cost: $5

At the end of a turn, if you played exactly one Note this turn, put 2 VP here.  Otherwise, remove them, taking them if there were three or more, and returning them to the bank if fewer than three.  At the end the game, take the remaining VP, if at least 3 are here.

Wouldn't it make more sense if it was if at least "4 VP are here", not at least 3?

I just noticed that I was putting 2 VP on there each turn, and I think I only meant to do 1, so that's why odd numbers are weird here.  (For me, three or more different notes can be an arpeggio.)

Interesting thought I had... what cards can we most horribly break just by removing one word/short phrase? The less removed, the better.

Probably the best I can do...

Discard the top card of your deck. If it's an Action card, you may play it.   
This works with pretty much any "if", they mostly stop making sense.

Amateurs.

No effect
0*

You cannot gain this card.
------
In games using this, add an extra kingdom card to the supply.
booooooring!!!
No affect
$0
When you play this, return it to your hand.
Reveal the top five cards in the Copper pile and choose one: move them to the bottom of the pile, or put them back in any order.
If your deck is empty, discard your deck.
Pass a card to the opponent on your right. He must pass the same card back.
Reveal cards from your deck until you reveal a card. Put it on top of your deck. If there are no cards in your deck, this does not take affect.
Setup: After you choose the kingdom, it this card is in it, choose another supply pile and add it to the supply. Nobody may gain a card from this pile.
This gives you a ton of information on your deck if you play it with Overlord or Band of Misfits

Xzibit's Gold
$4 Treasure - Reaction
When you play this, this is worth $1+$3(n-1) where n is the number of times a Xzibit's Gold has been played this turn.
---
When another player gains a Province, you may trash this from your hand. If you do, gain two Fool's Golds, putting them on your deck in any order.
Isn't this always going to be better than a Fools Gold?? Other than the below the line effect

Except when you want to buy 2 of them with 4 money and 2 buys.

Also, good necros, are you getting the best of RBCI?

The Old Gods of Azeroth, in Dominion form. I did have to take some liberties with C'thun's effect, it definitely translates poorly.

The first one is hard to track
The second isn't the worst idea, but gets better as more cards enter the trash.
The third seems like it would be a good project, and for a slightly cheaper cost
The 4th is useless in games without , and should also be an attack

Yeah I actually like #3, it could work as an actual card with some tweaks.

That's basically what the "Actually passable card ideas" thread is for.

Deck of Many Things
Action
Name a number. Receive cards from the Deck of Many Things equal to the number you named.
(Pile works just like boons do)

Deck of Many things Cards:
Quote
Balance. Your mind suffers a wrenching alteration, causing your alignment to change.

Comet. If you win this game, you gain experience points enough to age one year.

Donjon. You disappear and become entombed in a state of suspended animation in an extradimensional sphere. Everything you were wearing and carrying stays behind in the space you occupied when you disappeared. You remain imprisoned until you are found and removed from the sphere. You also must forfeit the game
 
Euryale. Take a new Twice Miserable, even if you have Miserable or Twice Miserable already.

Flames. A powerful devil becomes your enemy. The devil seeks your ruin and plagues your life, savoring your suffering before attempting to slay you. This enmity lasts until either you or the devil dies.

Gem. +2500

Idiot. Reveal your hand. Trash a card of your choice. There must be no cards costing higher than the trashed card in your hand

Jester. You can draw two additional cards beyond your declared draws.

Key. Choose 1: a magic weapon appears in your hands, or you may gain a card of your choice.

Knight. You gain the service of a knight. The knight serves you loyally until death, believing the fates have drawn him or her to you.

Moon. Gain three wishes

Rogue. Someone at the table becomes hostile to you. When they play an attack, that card only effects you. When they play a non-attack card that affects other players, it doesn't effect you.

Ruin. -100 You may not have below

Skull. Gain the Curse pile to your hand

Star. Draw two cards

Sun. Gain a card costing up to

Throne: You gain rightful ownership of a small keep somewhere in the world. However, the keep is currently in the hands of monsters, which you must clear out before you can claim the keep as yours. You may also play a action from your hand twice.

Vizier. Once, at any time you choose during the game after drawing this card, you can ask a question from the table and receive truthful answer to that question.

The Void. Your soul is drawn from your body and contained in a Dominion box at the nearest Game store. You lose the game. The next person to open the game box your soul is kept in releases you back to your body


Edit: Added a box around each card for easier reading

C'Thun is insane when it does anything at all.

N'Zoth presumably tracks those cards which were already in the trash until it loses track in order to work?
