I guess "Sacred Grove" is a common thing in Magic: The Gathering? That's what somebody said, anyway. No idea for Secret Cave, but it's cool that somebody got it.

Sacred Groves are actual things: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_grove A bit obscure perhaps, but a real term. And once we had Druid it's not much of a stretch.

I guessed cave, and I suppose with Secret Passage and Secret Chamber people just started throwing secret behind some words.

Some thoughts about the names...

Pooka? I feel like Goblin would be cooler. Den of Sin is very sexual and doesn't really fit with the theme. (Neither do several others of course, but I feel like Den of Sin is supposed to fit.) Also, Ghost Town "doesn't mean what you think it means".

Exorcist, Cemetery, Monastery, Changeling, Werewolf, Necromancer, Vampire, Crypt, Idol are cool.
But I would have liked more of them, like Mandrake, Nightshade, Crucifix, Wight, Spirit, Phantom, Specter, Bats, Spiders, Dragon, Demon, Gargoyle, Leviathan, Owl, Skeleton, Skull...
EDIT: and Grimoire! And a Develop variant called Decompose!

I think of Den of Sin as, like, a gambling hall as well.

Den of Sin is very sexual and doesn't really fit with the theme.

I don't know, sex is often coupled (hehe) with the occult and ritual magic.  I think it works pretty well, given the context.

It works just as well as "brothel" would in that sense.

Brothel card, because we all know how much Harem was a hit with the kids.

You know, we could. Necromancer could gain Necronomicons from the Necronomicon pile.

So, I guess Necromancer Necro's old Dominion games.

Also, no Gremlins, but we have Pooka which is kind of the same, I think.

I think Den of Sin fits rather well with the theme. Besides images of the "Icon of Sin" from Doom 2, it reminded me of the "Louviers Possessions":

https://www.mtholyoke.edu/courses/rschwart/hist257/stephwhit/final/3possessions.html

Also, I can understand Den of Sin referring to gambling. Gambling dens are thing I think.

I feel dumb for trying "cursed idol" but not "idol" by itself.

You're not alone. I tried Cursed Idol as well. That was an outtake.

With no context, I would say those two are fairly synonymous, but within context I think the word "sin" makes "Den of Sin" more thematically appropriate than "brothel".

I would dig a Great Old Ones pile with each card being a different (ŕ la Knights) Lovecraftian ancient.

Agree. I also agree that "Den of Sin" in more puritanical contexts could mean merely a gambling hall (as previously noted) or a tavern.

To protect the innocent I propose we put these suggestive card names like Secret Cave in spoiler tags from now on.

I found Idol because I typed in the German word "Götze".

You said that sex is often coupled with magic. In that sense, (i.e. judging how well the name works given its sexual connotations) brothel would work equally well.

Anyway, even if it also has gambling connotations (which in any case are less obvious than the sexual ones), it still doesn't fit with the theme. Except of course if we're thinking that gambling generally happens at night... but so does sex, so hey.
