Old idea. Revised.
Quote
Eastern Merchant
cost $4 - Action
+1 Action
+2 Buy
+$2
Take an extra Buy phase immediately.
Buying a card in Action phase. Usually non-terminal Woodcutter. After resolving, you have a chance to play the bought card. Similar to Ironworks. Is it worth buying? Any simpler text?
A non-terminal qausi-Silver Action card is probably already a 4$ so I feel safe in claiming that this is overpowered.
The Black Market like idea is cool though.
I am not sure. Non-terminal Silver is just a Silver you can only play in Action phase. Not $4 but $3.
There are some non-terminal Silvers: Festival, Minion, Conspirator, Lighthouse, Fishing Village, Grand Market, and Mystic. $5-cost cards have a reason why they are $5. Festival: Village
Minion: instead draw 4
Mystic: draw 1/2
They cannot be $5 - game breaker.
Eastern Merchant doesn't break. Yes, it is not weak, but not worth $5 (although I will reduce 1 Buy). I gave it +1 Action because without this, it is uninteresting.

Ehm, I argued that pure Action-Silver is a 4$, not a 5$.
Eastern Merchant is significantly more than just an Action-Silver so this hovers somewhere between 4$ and 5$. There are ample of cards that provide from non-terminal coins and an ib-between Buy phase also sometimes matters.

New idea. Baron and Peddler variant.

Quote
Sleeping Beauty
cost $3 - Action - Victory
+1 Card
+1 Action
+$1
You may discard a Victory card not to gain an Estate.

Wait, so you need to discard a VP card or else you gain an estate?

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.

Yes. Green grows when you use without green. Use it with Silk Road, Garden, Baron, or Watchtower.

I think it should say "You may discard a Victory card. If you didn't, gain an Estate" then.

Is it fun? Some awesome ways to use?

An Event to do something on opponent's turn.

Quote
Direct Trade
cost $1 - Event
Once per turn: +1Buy. Set aside a card from your hand and put your Direct Trade token on it. Ask each other player to swap it for their set-aside card. If agreed, swap them, putting into their new owners' hand. At the start of your next turn, trash the set-aside card and +$1.

Quote
Honey Fairy
cost $2 - Action
+1 Action
Choose one: take a coin token; remove your two tokens to duplicate a token you have.
Candlestick Maker variant from Heart of Crown. Works well with Adventures or Empires. You can duplicate your +1 Action token, removing your Coin tokens, sometimes removing your debt tokens.

Another idea. Just a prototype.

Quote
Manna from the Heaven
cost $2 - Action - Duration
For the rest of the game, at the start of your Buy phase, you may gain a Copper into your hand.
(This stays in play.)
Quote
Pixy 1
cost $2 Action
+$2
Gain a card. Each other player gains a copy of it.
Quote
Pixy 2
cost $2 Action - Attack
+$2
Each other player trashes the top card of their deck and gain the same cost card, their choice.
Quote
Pixy 3
cost $2 Action - Attack
+$2
Reveal a card from your hand. Each other player may reveal a copy of it from their hand, and if they didn't, they gain a copy of it.
Quote
Pixy 4
cost $2 - Action - Attack
Each other player may reveal a Pixy from their hand, and if they didn't, they gain a Copper.

An idea stole from Asper. The original was
Message in a bottle
+1 Card
+1 Action
The player to your right flips their Bottle token over. If it's face up, they draw a card.

When you buy this, put it and a copy of it in the discard pile of the player to your left.

I found a fun variant.
Quote
Pixy 5
cost $2 - Action

+$1
Your right player draws a card.

When you buy this, your left gains this instead.

Actually, I'd consider pure Action-Silver (that is, an Action card that just gives +1 Action, +2$) to be worth slightly less than Silver, not more. It has the disadvantage that it can be drawn dead, for example.

That was pacofv's take on the idea. The original idea didn't use the token flipping mechanic. Just for info.

Final version.

Quote
Pixy
cost $2 Action - Duration
Gain 2 Coppers, setting aside.
At the start of your each Buy phase, put any number of them into your hand.

It is a Begger, Butcher variant. It gives you 2 coin tokens at the price of $2. Unlike other Duration, it waits until you really need. I tried Reserve version, but this is crazy with Miser.

Other two: I conceived on another thread.
Quote
Shrewd Manager
cost $2 - Action - Duration
Choose one: +1 Card; +1 Action; +1 Buy; +$1.
At the start of your next turn, do the others.
Quote
Secret Well
cost $3 Action - Reaction
+1 Action
+1 Buy
Discard your hand and draw 5 cards.

When another player plays an Attack card, you may set this aside from your hand. If you do, look at the top 3 cards of your deck. Set aside one of them. Discard one of them. Put the other one on top of your deck.

Am I right asduming that Secret Well pseudo-trashes the card it sets aside? Because it doesn't ever state that the cards return to your deck. Same goes for itself.

That card is discarded.

Some cards are revised. Next is one of them.

Quote
Nightingale
cost $0* - Action
Reveal three cards from your deck. Trash any number of non-Treasure cards. Discard the rest.
You can’t buy this if you have any Treasures in play.
She was Nurse, cantrip trasher, crazy. One day I thought "isn't costless Kingdom card nice?" It must not be so powerful, but has to be useful. I thought "hey, Nurse, do you like Treasures?" She is willing to help you without any Treasures. She doesn't mind Treasures. Trashing 3 cards without decreasing your buy power. Attractive, isn't she?

Quote
Maleficent
cost $3 - Action - Attack
+$2
Each other player gains a Curse.
When you buy this, put all cards from your hand onto your deck.
She was Broom. Its reaction part is used for another card. I needed a Curser costing $3 or $4 in my expansion. I tried some, but won't work. I tried penalty version, and here she is. Once the penalty was on-gain effect, but one day, my friend bought Messenger.

Nightingale should use the Lookout wording and is really too similar to Lookout to be interesting.
Maleficent is an auto-double-opening buy and far too good. Would probably be even too good at 4$ as the on-buy drawback is not that nasty.

I wrote this as a variant of Survivor or Sentry, but yes, it is similar to Lookout. Is it too similar? This cannot prevent discarding good cards. This can remove three. Non-mandatory.

Well, this is sometimes true, but sometimes not. When you have $5 on T1, you can double-open 90%, $4, 70%, $3, 60%, topdecking 2 cards. I don't think double-opening is a good idea - after T3, you have 4 cards on deck. You cannot play two Maleficents too often.

You underestimate how strong junkers are. Without the on-buy drawback this card would be too good for 4$ and too weak for 5$ (only due to Mountebank) but it is far closer to a 5$ than a 4$.

I know what you are saying. I, a year ago, would say the same thing. Of course this is strong. Not ignorable in 2 player games. But how about 4 player? All three opponents will buy, and play. So buying another good card is sometimes better. It costs $3 because $4 is too boring. Topdecking 1? Penalty is weak. 2? Maybe works. I am trying another bonus for Maleficent - $2 is too boring, I now think.

Another card to discuss. Maleficent was discarded.
Quote
Peter Pan (renamed)
cost $3 - Action
+$2
Trash this.
After this turn, put all cards from your deck and discard pile into your hand, and put cards from your hand onto your deck until you have 5 cards in hand.
Chancellor. He was once a mischievous boy. His trick succeeded only once, but that was amazing. Wasn't he nice Feast?

Quote
Dwarf Village
cost $4 - Action
+1 Card
+2 Actions
Reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal one costing $4 or more. Put it back on top, and discard the rest.
Dwarfs call their friends. Farming Village, Sage, Wandering Minstrel's variant. Too strong? Maybe. But they cannot discard  Province.

I like both cards. Peter Pan looks strong but then again 3 is expensive for a one-shot terminal Silver. Dwarf Village is nothing fancy but good. I'd also try it as: "+2 Actions. Reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal one costing $4 or more.  Put it into your hand, and discard the rest.

I thought that too similar to Sage, but nice.

Another.
Quote
Totoro
cost $2 - Action
Return this to its pile.
Gain a Cat-bus from Cat-bus pile.
-
You cannot buy this when a Treasure other than Copper is in play.
Quote
Cat-bus
cost $0* - Action
You may reveal Totoro from your hand.
If you didn't, return this to its pile.
In either way, +3 Cards, +1 Action, +1 Buy.
Overpowered or uninteresting?

Quote
Neverland

+1 Card
+1 Action
Reveal your hand.
+$1 per a Victory card in hand.
