Try pricing this very swingy card. Give your reasons. No need to criticise others as its just a bit of fun.

$????Rummage Sale 
Action
Reveal the top three cards of your deck. Trash one, return another to the supply and discard the third. Gain a copy of the discarded card.

There are 4 cases:
If you open with it you can only net trash one card with it (sure, you can also quasi-trash 2 Estates and gain a Copper).
After your deck has some good cards it becomes really good: trash 2 you want, gain 1 you want.
Respectively a bit late: trash 1 you want, 1 you don't want and gain a copy of the best of the 3.
It becomes worse when you have to trash 2 good cards and gain a copy of the best.

So overall better than Lookout but terminal. Should probably be OK at $3 or $4.

Play Rummage Sale, reveal Fortress, Imp, Colony.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

What happens to Imp? Im not sure as its not really from the supply.
But yeah Colony. Gainers tend to exclude Victory cards (eg. Jester) or limit themselves by cost. Thats what makes it hard to cost. It could be just trash one card (if you draw three coppers) or insanely good.

The instruction barfs and the Imp probably remains on top of your deck.

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

'ISOTROPIC WILL RETURN!'

For my part I think its ok at $5.
A kingdom with this as its only 5 cost card would not be great as I wouldn't want to buy it first or second turn.
I might be costing it too high given its terminal nature but even a small chance of hitting a province late game means $5 still seems fair.

Direct Province gaining looks crazy at first but but you most likely have to trash a good card when you gain the Province late inthe game such that the card works in this instance like a Remodel variant.
