Tinker
-Needs art, and a rename b/c of a card in Enterprise. Possibly Invent?

If Tinker is not accepted, I would suggest Charcoal Burner (Art: Tom Roberts)

Thanks King Leon! It's not as much that your name/art isn't accepted, but that I would like to have both cards. I tend not to have two fan cards with the same name and as LFN and 461.weavile already have a card named this I just prefered an alternative.

The art looks great, and I like the parraleslism between Charcoal Burner and Silver Smelter.

If you have a fan card you want to be created, just post about it here! I'd love to take a look at it.

Thank you. I actually thought about Woodcutter, since the card is a Woodcutter variant, which can refine weak Wood (Copper) to better Charcoal (Silver).

Keep the art, just use Portent or Augury as the name is my suggestion. But I suppose the designer might want a final say.

The spirit of the name was the link to Envoy, since both are draw cards with another player having some control over what you can draw.  Portent or Augury would be getting at the other definition of Harbinger, not the one intended.

Open to other ideas, but my own suggestion will be Outrider.

Outrider will be fine.

Now this was brought up before, but I'll bring it up again. What do want the text to be? As-is I think it's too good, and weaker it might be too simmilar to Advisor.

I think that's something that I shouldn't decide myself.  Input from others (especially people who have actually tested it) would be appreciated.  Maybe try flipping the roles though?

Quote
+1 Action
Reveal the top 5 cards of your deck and separate them into two piles.  The player to your left chooses one pile for you to discard.  Draw the rest.

Maybe this is too similar to Advisor as well though, I dunno.

I had a card for $4 that said the same thing, without the +1 action. It was balanced at $4, so I am sure Harbinger will be balanced at $5. Maybe you can change it to split 6 cards rather thn 5?

I mean, than it's +1 Action, +3 Cards, with the downside that what you draw will always be average, because of the splitness.

Can your opponent see whats in the piles or are they guessing blind?

I assume that the opponent can see it, because it's revealed.

They're revealed.  But I was just about to post this new version which I think would be super fun, but would also come with major risk of Analysis Paralysis:

Quote
+1 Action
Look at the top 5 cards of your deck and split them into two piles.  Reveal 3 of the cards.  The player to your left chooses one pile to put into your hand.  Discard the rest.

It could alternatively reveal 4 cards of the 5, if revealing only 3 is too strong.

@ThetaSigma, your paraphrasing is fine but it should say "chooses", not "choose".
