My guesses for the English name of Pistage are either Hunt or Pursuit.

I'm francophone, I would say than Pistage is more the translation of tracking than hunt, Pursuit is also a good fit...

I would guess than the translation will be tracking, but will see

I don't think gerund is used for Dominion titles.

Tracking
$1 - Event - Hunter

Look at the top 3 cards of your deck.  Draw one and discard the others.

Clearly it should be Pistachio.
But how does it combo with Bacon Cheeseburger?

I think the most direct translation is Tracking, but this strongly suggests that it's not the correct name for the card in English:

I guess there is no harm in stating those translations are, though not perfect, accurate to what the cards do.  I'll let you guys speculate on the name of the first one, though.

To me the art looks like a group hunting a person or animal.
The guy at the front is a tracker searching for footprints.

I can see Tracking setting up a Doctor overpay.

Seems like Quest is as close to an alternative Curse as we'll get, don't you think? I mean, it gives them the ability to gain Golds and in turn adds the same ability to Cursers - so you don't skip Cursers because of Quest, i assume. The six card clause seems more like a "what if there's no attacks" thing to me. I'm not saying that's the order in which things will matter, maybe six cards are more often used than attacks, or attacks more often than Curses. Just concept-wise, that's the vibe i get from Quest.

Edit: Missused "as close as it gets" as "as close as we'll get".

It's always possible the name is something very idiomatic in English that had to be loosely translated (like 'Goons', e.g.) I'm having trouble thinking what though. Thought maybe something like 'Sleuth' but that doesn't go with the picture you describe. Based on that, Tracker seems a fair bet though.

I guess it's a good thing that cost reducers don't work on events then.

wait what? Why not?

Because the cost reducers reduce the cost of all cards.  Events aren't cards.

If you thought a double Ambassador opening was good before…

That's one way to take care of Ambassador collision.

Now I'm starting to wonder if Ambassador/Stonemason(Ambassador/Ambassador) is a good opening on a board with Baker and Quest.

…You still want your Ambassadors to line up with pairs of Copper or Estate, right?

Plus if you have an Ambassador/Ambassador/Quest collision, you'd still have to decide between using Quest to gain gold against using Ambassador for shoving back those coppers/estates. Either way, at least one card remains useless. I really don't know what the benefit over an Ambassador collision sans Quête would be.

Uhm guys, Quest is an event. This all happens on the same turn:

1) You draw double Amb and CCE or EEC
2) You return CC or EE with the first Amb
3) You buy a Quest for $0 and discard the second Amb, to gain a Gold

Wow, I didn't even think about Quest's utility for terminal (Attack) collision in the beginning of the game.

How would Quête affect a Torturer pin strategy? Getting one Gold for two Curses is still Copper density, plus you lose the option of discarding two Curses to the third Torturer.

You still need to spend a buy for it, so unless you have more +buy in your deck than you need, that's not very good.

Gaining a Gold when you have less than €6 in hand is often an attractive option.

So Quest is confirmed, Tracking is confirmed wrong.
