Name That Card

Troubadour:
Choose one: +1 Card and +1 Action; or choose an Action card from your hand. Play the chosen card once for each differently named Action card you have in play other than this.
Cost: $6
Action


So I'm making this card for a fan expansion I'm working on, and it's based on the Renaissance, with a theme of cards that care about what you have in play.

You might want to rephrase 'once for each differently named Action card you have in play other than copies of itself' to 'other than this'; the effect (that you only play the chosen card once unless you've played an action to playing Unnamed Card) will be the same, and will be less wordy.

As for the name, perhaps Troubadour, since a Troubadour is only interesting if he knows a wide variety of songs?

I think the wording should be a choose one.

"Choose one: +1 card +1 action; or, choose a card..."

The card sounds like pretty OP, though. It easily becomes better than KC.

I can't/won't speak to the design of the card, but if this card is similar to Throne Room/King's Court/Procession I would recommend calling it something like:

- Scaffold (Scaffolding) - that a painter would use to paint the the Throne Room/King's Court/Chapel, plus it ties into the idea of the card that the more cards (platforms) you have out the higher (and more useful) it will be.

I agree, those are much better wordings. I especially don't know why I didn't use a choose one like GendoIkari suggests. And after looking up what a Troubadour is, I agree that that's a good name. I think I'll use that.
