Poor Mine.

The thing is, once you get up to Contraband on this list, all the cards are useful enough to exist. Royal Seal, Explorer, and Mine are not cards I buy every game, but I get them plenty. Mandarin and Contrband are situational, but still useful enough of the time. The cards below them are weak enough that I'd love to see them improved if such a thing were possible. Stash could be cheaper, but have some sort of limit on its acquisition to make it not a Silver+ at $4. Cache could give you one Copper instead. Harvest could let you put a card back on your deck. Counting House could give +1 Action or +1 Buy (or be a Treasure).

Counting House could give +1 Action or +1 Buy (or be a Treasure).

Being a Treasure would just further nerf it, though. +1 Action would be fine, or costing less.

That said, I do buy Counting House more often than I buy Mandarin or Contraband and it also makes a bigger impact whenever I do.

In general, 5 cost kingdom treasures are not very good, so first we need to make it a coin giving non-terminal action. Then it still has the problem of being a stop card, so we should maybe take away +1 coin and give it +1 card instead. Now its a cantrip, that helps, but its bonus ability doesnt seem all that useful in most situations so why don't we replace that with something more useful like +1 buy.

There we go! Now stash is a perfectly reasonable average-powered 5 cost card.

i agree with the problems that the $5 kingom treasures have.
for a $5 silver the positive effect mostly isn't worth the buy. (maybe it's worth when you have a $5 hand and want a silver anyway)
for a $5 gold it's the same for the downsides
only the effects of the $5 coppers are really strong.

Why does everyone hate counting house so much? It makes me cry in my pillow. :'( It is better than harvest, stash, sab. to name a few. Any card that can potentially draw a lot of cards should not be on last place.
With adventures it even has a ~12 turn=8 provinces combo
Edit added combo

Can someone explain venture to me? I find more strategic uses for most of the cards on here.

I think that venture is completely overrated it is generally worth ~2.5$ if there is trashing this goes up but then again trashing helps engines a lot more than venture
Here are my bottom 15 5$ cards:
Quote
67.) Rogue   [X]
68.) Treasury   [X]
69.) Pillage   [X]
70.) Counting House   [X]
71.) Venture   [X]
72.) Mine   [X]
73.) Trade   [X]
74.) Tribute   [X]
75.) Saboteur   [X]
76.) Contraband   [X]
77.) Harvest   [X]
78.) Royal Seal   [X]
79.) Explorer   [X]

saboteur, i mean, it's a bad card, but it can buy you time to build an engine or grind an opponent out of the game when there's king's court out. certainly better than tribute, which is just awful.
