MJ's Cards
« on: March 14, 2016, 09:22:15 pm »

To build another fun expansion, I will add new ideas here.

Old topics:
Nurse
cost 2 - Action
+1 Card
+1 Action
You may trash a card from your hand.
Time Traveller
cost 2 - Event
+1 Buy
Take a Coin token.
Each other player draws and discards a card.

Another one.
Quote
Broom
cost 3 - Action - Attack - Reaction
+$1
Each other player gains a Curse.
When you gain a card, you may reveal this from your hand. If you do, set aside that card on your Broom mat.

A non-mandatory cantrip trasher has to cost 5$. Note that mandatory cantrip trashers like Junk Dealer and Upgrade become either risky during the later part of the game (I don't have any junk in my hand so do I risk playing the card)) or even dead cards if you are totally out of junk.

Time Traveller is probably too weak. On average a card is better than a coin so why would I want to get a Coin token (admittedly stronger than an instant coin) and gift my opponents a card? I think the better way to nerf this Event is to restrict it to "once per turn".

Broom is probably OK although I would first try it at 4$. Not that there is a big difference between 3$ and 4$ but as it is an attack-defense Broom could be so strong that it is often/always right to open with two of them. At a price of 4$ you cannot normally do so.

I think nurse costs $2 so that everyone can open with two of them and it's not a race to hit $5.

Would you also argue that Junk Dealer and Upgrade should cost 2$ such that everybody could open with them?

This implicit comparison with Chapel is dubious for a simple reason: Chapel is a terminal whereas this is a cantrip. This is also why you rarely want more than one Chapel whereas you frequently want two cantrip trashers.

So besides being totally mispriced Nurse could imply that in a lot of Kingdoms the best opening is two Nurses.

I think there are reasons in favour of comparing Nurse to Chapel, and reasons against it. Obviously, allowing each player access to Chapel because it's good is something you could apply to Nurse. But i think the reason you listed weights stronger: You will open with two Nurses. In fact, i can imagine loading up on as many Nurses as i can get, simply because they don't harm your deck. Unlike Chapel, where multiples are actively bad usually, Nurses become better in multiples. Note this would still apply if Nurse was mandatory, as getting 2-3 Nurses would allow you to clear out your deck faster than one, and still can trash each other after that.

At the danger of sounding like a bad advertiser, take a look at my Homunculus ("Asper's Cards" thread, no link as i'm on mobile, sorry), which started very similar to Nurse. I gradually weakened it until it took its final form, where it is relatively easy to aquire, but delayed. Note that several other Alchemy cards, like Scrying Pool or Apothecary, and Travellers follow a similar pattern. This is to say, Nurse doesn't need to cost $5, but it certainly needs to be slowed down or made unattractive in multiples.

A 4$ non-mandatory cantrip trasher wouldn't ruin the game like a 3$ or 2$ would but I think that 5$ is still a better price. Your very own Homunculus is evidence of that:

Homunculus is similar in strength to a non-mandatory cantrip trasher. It is obviously hard to equate its cost into coins due to the Potion trash thingy but one could compare it to Feast. Like Potion Feast costs 4$. During the turns you play/trash them Feast is better as you can buy something during the turn you play it (unless Markt Square and Homunculus are in the Kingdom, then you might open withboth) and Potion is better as you can play a terminal Action with it. I'd say that these relative (dis)advantages roughly balance each other out so the end results, Homunculus and a 5$ card, are comparable.
This is why I would argue that if Homunculus were priced "normally" it would be a 5$ card.

Isn't Time Traveler almost strictly worse then candlestick maker?
Candlestick Maker: +1 Buy, +Coin Token, Not Terminal, Stays in your deck. Time Traveler: +1 Buy, +Coin Token, Not Terminal, Benefits Opponents?

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.

The point is for games with no +buy (or only Ruined Market or something) and your deck hits $12 and you want to save some of that money for later.

Yes, i'm not disagreeing with you. My main idea was just to point out that there are other ways to make a card more "expensive" than by costing them higher, which might be able to avoid the "race to hit $5" problem. Travellers, for example. Or a clause like "When you buy this, shuffle your discard pile into your deck." so it always misses the shuffle (it should still cost more). Or some restriction like "You can not buy this while you have no action cards in play" (now that i think of it, this is kind of like Peddler). Or a similar thing with "You may not buy this if you have less than 4 different cards in play". Or costing it at $3+, where you gain a Copper per $1 you overpaid less than, let's say, $3. Or a (regular) Potion cost. Or... There are a lot of ways to do it.

I fixed Time Traveller to give opponents shifting benefit. The original idea of benefit was more chance to play cards opponents gained, so this still works.

Definitely. If somebody can pull this off, like you did with Homunculus, this is cool. One way that comes to mind is to have a terminal 4$ that gains non-supply one-shots. Not all that original, it is just like Marauder-Spoils, but I think that it is a fairly straightforward way to have a quasi 5$ card that everybody can get at roughly the same time.

Thanks. And sorry MJ, i didn't want to distract from Nun... Another way would be some Dark-Ages-y two-step card with a condition, like Urchin.

New idea.

Quote
Gold Rush
cost 5 - Treasure
You may choose a Treasure card in your hand. Play it twice.
I wanted Throne Room for Treasure. First, I copied Counterfeit's clause, but this is clearer.

Quote
Silver Rush
cost 5 - Treasure - Duration
Now and at the start of your next turn:
+$2
+1Buy
Each other player gains a Silver.
Treasure-Duration card. Maybe too similar to Merchant Ship.

Gold Rush(A)

This is similar to Magic Mirror, to my knowledge the only decent Action-Treasure card so far.
The wording "This is that card until either leaves play." is IMO a bit better than "play a card twice" but it is not like the latter is unlcear.

While your card is moderately weaker than Magic Mirror I would nonetheless test it at 4$. When you have two or three Golds in your deck such that Gold Rush becomes a worthwile purchase you often hit 6 and thus buy a Gold and when you hit 5 you might rather want an Action Card.

I sometimes tried Action-Treasure, but I didn't know Magic-Mirror. This is worth at least $1(Copper copying), usually $2(in order to buy it, you need some Silvers), often $3(Gold copying), sometimes $4(Fool's Gold) or more(Platinum, Bank, etc.). Unlike Counterfeit, this does not need trash. Sometimes overpowering for cost 4. I felt the domination of Big-Money is not fun, so I priced $5.

Broom
cost 3 - Action - Attack - Reaction
+$1
Each other player gains a Curse.
When you gain a card, you may reveal this from your hand. If you do, set aside that card on your Broom mat.

This card seems very unfun. First, it's a curser, and when cursing is good, you want to open Broom/Broom, which leads to awfully sloggy games since the card does nothing for your economy.

If cursing isn't very good due to heavy trashing, you can probably build an engine, and in any engine I want to buy this simply for the reaction which is a super easy way to avoid stalling when greening and takes the whole "dealing with green cards" theme away from the game. Island is closest to this, and for that you still have to play the card, plus it is one-shot.

Huh? The fact that Counterfeit trashes is an asset and not a liability before the endgame when you trash non-Copper. Gold Rush, a plain Treasure TR, is definitely too weak for 5$. Big Money rarely wins so there is no need to be afraid of a card that makes it stronger.
Its main problem though is that it is too narrow. It makes no sense at all to buy this before you have a few Gold unless there is no decent 4$ and 5$ card. So unlike other Treasure cards you only want this for BM and Colony games (it is also OK in a game with Venture once the Venture pile is empty).

Fmm... I don't think Big-Money is weak (especially in multiplayer games). But I agree this is too solid, narrow, and unattractive. So I added new clause.

At the start of Clean-up this turn, you may choose a Treasure card you have in play. If you discard it from play this turn, put it on your deck.
This can wait for the collision. GR-GR-GR-Gold-Gold enables you buying Colony every turn.

New one. I am wondering its name.
Quote
Magic Lamp
cost 2+ - Action
+2 Cards
Use a Lamp token. If you do, choose one: +1 Action; or +$1; or trash a card from your hand.
When you buy this, you may overpay for it. For each $1 you overpaid, take a Lamp token.
Fixed.

Broom(B)
cost 4 - Action - Reaction
Set aside a card from your hand.
When you gain a card, you may reveal this. If you do, set aside that card.
New one.
Quote
Mirror of Erised

Another. Alt-VP card! (Just a prototype)

Pastoral Land
cost $4 - Treasure - Victory
Worth $0
When you play this, take a Pastoral token. You cannot buy cards in this turn.
Worth 1 vp for every Pastoral token you have.
This needs
1. to avoid repetition of moves
2. to be balanced
Please give me your tips!

It's a lot like a VP token card, just that you get one VP per Pastoral you have and you lose part of the VP if Pastoral gets trashed. It's much too dominant. Usually, VP cards try to move the game towards its end. Pastoral actually keeps you from ending the game. Getting more of these than your opponents is almost an instant win. I recommend limiting the tokens to 5 per player.

New prototype.
Quote
Pastoral Land
cost $4 - Victory - Reaction
Worth 1 vp for every 2 Victory cards on your Tavern mat (round down).
At the start of your Buy phase, you may reveal this from your hand. If you do, put any number of Victory cards from your hand on your Tavern mat. You can't buy cards in this turn.
