junk dealer is a strong trasher that's only a trasher and turns into a dead card once you cleaned up your deck. carnival is manifold, always stays a peddler and trashes on-gain. it better be weaker than junk dealer if you buy it early.

another reason why trashing one card is so good is that it can get rid of the last dead card in your deck.

This is kind of true, but Carnival is not versatile in the same way that Steward or Pawn is versatile. Carnival's versatility isn't part of its power because you can't choose anything when you play it. Once you choose an effect, it's "locked in". So each of Carnival's three effects should work at $5 on their own.

that's true, but even still it should be weaker than junk dealer if you buy it early and better if you buy it late. if it's better or as good than junk dealer even if you get it early, there's no reason to buy junk dealer anymore.
