I'm not sure I would call Shanty Town a buff. If you draw no Action cards with it, it's a Moat.
(Quite aside from what other people have pointed out...)
If you play Shanty Town with actions in hand, it's like a Necropolis. Cost: $1
If you play Shanty Town and draw no actions, it's like a Moat. Cost $2

That's a buff. (-8

So is a Lab.  Everyone still likes Lab.

My point is that Night cards require no Actions. They are like Treasures in this respect. Nobody would argue that Treasure cards buff Shanty Town, or Lab. Treasure cards, and Night cards for that matter, buff terminal draw, not nonterminal draw.

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.

Thinking like this is a massive mistake and the best way to lose Dominion games.

I wouldn't go that far. I could use the first ten turns to buy out the curses and then move on to Coppers and Estates.

I mean, it wasn't particularly wrong to begin with. You shouldn't buy Shanty Town in a kingdom where you wouldn't buy Necropolis (aside from edge cases).

Kingdom Treasure cards (that I didn't blow it on) improve Shanty Town. They are better than either Silver or Gold (depending on what they cost, and yes the ones better than Gold are still better than Silver), and so they improve how good of a hand you can have where Shanty Town gets to draw you cards.

Lab does not check to see if you have other Action cards in hand before drawing you cards.

If you wanna argue that Lab or Lost City are weak cards you failed.

If Shanty Town is the only splitter that is correct. But if there is another village good play can make Shanty Town a Lost City more than 50% of the time.

The point is that Lost City and Lab are better with Action cards than with non-Action cards.

If you gain a Rocks with Vampire, you get a Silver you can't play in your hand.

While itís true that Library canít skip Night cards, thatís not all that important; because the main reason you want to skip actions with Library is so that you donít draw them dead. You generally will want to draw Night cards with Library; generally as much as you want to draw Treasure.

More importantly, you can't play Night cards before Library to draw more cards.

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

But you can trash it with Bat or Exorcist.
