If Pooka could also trash Cursed Gold

Pooka as is doesn't seem to get a lot of love.  IIRC, it's the least popular Kingdom card with a matching Heirloom.

How much did you buy it before?  How much better would it if it could trash Cursed Gold?

It is a card which looks brilliant in theory. Trash a Copper and instead of Moneylender's terminal Gold or Spice Merchant's Lab you get a Hunting Grounds effect.
But you don't want a Hunting Grounds early on, you want Moneylender's payload or Spice Merchant's cycling. Without Cursed Gold, i.e. Pooka as an ordinary Kingdom card unrelated to a particular Heirloom, it would probably be an OKish $5.

Almost every game it's in.

Pooka is amazing, and cycling is underrated.

The Cursed Gold allows you to open with Pooka and more importantly requires you to find something to do in the Kingdom other than play Pooka because Pooka hates Curses so much.

It would probably be too good if it could trash the Cursed Gold. Using the Cursed Gold to get Pooka and then trashing it immediately would be too obvious too often.

As it is now, though, it's pretty bad. It takes a lot of work to set things up so that it doesn't screw with all your other cards, and even then its effect can be underwhelming.

Opening Pooka is really, really rarely the right move. That first shuffle Curse is just awful for your consistency and economy.
