Why does Mercenary's cost have to be 0...
It's so you can't get back Madman with Graverobber!

Wait, how would it be possible to get Madman with Graverobber? Aren't Madmen returned to their pile?
That is *also* so you can't get back Madman with Graverobber!

Getting back Madman with Graverobber was nuts. So Graverobber and Rogue only gain the $3-$6 range, and Madman costs $0. Hey Madman could return to its pile, that also does the trick. But what if there's some other card with this same problem, that that part won't work on? Let's just make all these hard-to-get things cost $0.

These days I recognize that for the most part it's best if cost relates to power level, even for un-buyable cards. But there are still good reasons sometimes to have a cost that doesn't relate so much. And there's Magic Lamp, costing $0, where Graverobber can't touch it.

I'm trying to think...  Is there any way to use trashed Madmen repeatedly?  You could use Necromancer, but I think that would make the Madmen go back to its pile, and you could only use them once per turn.

EDIT: Never mind that first point, I just looked at the FAQ.

As long as you aren't playing Madman, just trashing it and getting it back, I'm willing to let you have that fun.

Well, I managed to get Moon's Gift twice in one turn with an empty discard pile. This after pulling Miserable from my first Cursed Village.

Not as bad as that other thing that can happen with Sea Hag, but still bad:

K plays a Sea Hag.
C discards a Lookout.
C gains a Curse.

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

I felt really bad for my opponent when I swindled his Goat into an Estate near the beginning. I don't think there was any other trashing, either.

I opened 5/2 on a Sauna board with no other trashing. I bought my first Sauna on turn 4, and lost the Sauna split 4-1.

I just recently got my Goat Locusted into a Copper early in the game.

My opponent and I were having an extreme swindler battle with prince in the kingdom. He collided prince and swindler almost right after he got a prince. I made sure I bought a lot of cellars so that I could discard everything except for princes and swindlers so that they would collide but they never collided that whole game.
