With all the VP token cards and (probably) no actual green cards in Empires, Scout is going to be even weaker than it already is. So sorry, Roadrunner. :(

Not necessarily. If the rest of the set are Scrying Pool variants, even if some of them give you VP tokens, Scout becomes stronger.

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

I guess that's true. Or maybe there's a card that leaves green on top of your deck as a penalty, like a self-Fortune Teller.

Stuff that encourages earlier greening may also help Scout out, e.g. Battlefield, maybe Groundskeeper.

Battlefield might actually be a legit thing with Scout. I'd buy Estates super duper early if they were basically Duchies.

I doubt it's a good idea, but only the playtesters really know at this point. :P

You give playtesters too much credit.

Especially when everyone can see that's not a good idea.

2 of them are actions, with one being a treasure.
