Not to mention the fact that the Pope Emeritus is still alive, and the current pope has hinted that he, too, intends not to die in office.

Been a while, but I gave Pope another try:



I thought a Reaction would be cool since the other top Travellers are a Reserve and a Duration, so a different type for it.  I also tried to word it so that you could only reveal the Pope once per card gain, but be able to reveal it for multiple gains, and to naturally only have need for one Pope.  The above-line part seems kind of gimmicky, but I like the Pope-Antipope flavor it brings.

Wording suggestion for the reaction: "When you gain a card, you may reveal this from your hand, to put the gained card into your hand. If you do that, +1 VP."

Also, I like the Reaction idea. It makes additional Popes superfluous without being awkward, and as you said, a Reaction is a fun idea for the final step. The Action part isn't overly convincing to me, though.

I specifically mentioned "discard pile" so you can't go infinite with Watchtower.

Asper's "If you do that" should have that same effect, and sounds better. Though admittedly it's not as completely obvious.

No it doesn't. You could reveal Pope, put in hand, reveal WT, put on deck, then Pope to put in hand, then WT, forever.

Hmm, pretty sure lose track prevents that. Once WT moves the card to your deck, Pope would be unable to find it to move it to hand. And vice-versa, if Pope moves it to hand first, WT cannot find it to move it to your deck.

This is correct.

One might say you.... keep losing track of it.
