Not sure if this is legal but I'm posting it anyway!

It's kinda like Hireling/Alchemist in that you can permanently increase your handsize with this, but it takes villages to do so. The +Action option is there for a bit of flexibility, but it's pretty terrible as a 2-turn cantrip.

Copier
Action - $2
+1 Card
You may reveal a non-Victory card from your hand to put it onto your deck and gain a copy of it.

Wouldn't it be simpler to discard it and gain a copy onto your deck? Takes less words for the same overall result (barring edge cases like empty piles, knights, castles, and split piles)

I'm sorry but I'm afraid this doesn't completely fit with the spirit of the contest, as the +1 Action is unconditional (you can choose it every time). There needs to be some other condition on the +1 Action besides the player's choice.

No actions period, here, but maybe you're anticipating having some of them next turn.

It is technically terminal though, since it doesn't give any +Actions immediately.

Yes, that's why I had to think about this for a bit. But really, if you're buying them in pairs they're (theoretically) not terminal because they can piggyback off each other. For this contest I want the workaround to be more difficult than that. I've made up my mind: no unconditional +Actions, even on a future turn.

CHALLENGE #45 SUBMISSION

[UPDATE] Escsort seemed a little to strong so I changed a few things up:
(1) You can now only play the top card of your discard pile. You can still run through your whole pile, but it now requires more thought and setup.
(2) You can now play Treasure cards. This means Escort can act as a type of Peddler using Coppers from your discard pile. This gives Escort more utility early, but this functionality is probably short lived as you'll wanna stack Actions instead.

Overall this card still has a lot of potential, but it will now require more thought as skill to get the most out of it.



Escort can be bonkers strong with a large amount of Action cards in your discard to play from, but the trick is having a discard pile. These are best in high numbers, but these don't really work well until you have an equally high number of other Action cards with +Action amounts to play off of. Can play other Escorts from the discard pile for extra card draw.

The +1 Card serves to allow precise, incremental drawing from the discard and helps keep the power level of Escort in check as these will eventually get rid of your discard pile when reshuffling occurs.

Escort
$4 - Action
+1 Card
Look through your discard pile. You may reveal an Action from it and play it.

Welcome back Doom Shark! Your Weekly Design Contest seems to be a big success. Anyways, as for your card, I'll repeat something you once told me:

"Looks horribly broken to me."

Worst case scenario you can discard your whole hand for +5 Coffers. Then there really isn't anything you can't buy at that point. Opening two of these you can potentially have +10 Coffers by your second shuffle, while if your opponent collides they are at +5 Coffers. That's a very big swing based purely on shuffle luck.

Cool concept, but I think it needs some adjusting. :)

Set aside your hand for next turn and stick a $5 into it that might make it play better, meanwhile get $3 to help this turn. Lots of payload but at the cost of Clean-up draw.
A niche card with a few strategies that really stand out, maybe too niche overall. Or complicated.

I did coffers because I wanted to differentiate from storeroom. I did not think about the ramifications of that. I'm debating whether to try to fix it or just scrap it entirely and make a new entry. Thanks for the candid feedback.

Safe is completely broken in comparison to Vault. +1 Coffers for each 2 cards discarded would probably fix it.

Sledgehammer
$2 - Action
+1 Card
You may reveal two cards with exactly the same cost. If you do, trash one of them, and if the other one is an Action or a Treasure, play it twice.

--
It requires some precision to demolish with a Sledgehammer. Coppers can be trashed without cash penalty; chain reaction with trashing an Estate is intended.

I like this suggestion. Will edit my original post. Thanks!

Reform
Types: Action
Cost: $5
+1 Card. Do this twice: You may trash a card from your hand and gain a card costing from $2 to $5, sharing a type with it.
Turn Coppers into Silvers. Turn Estates into Duchies. Reform your finished or inferior or terminally drawn Actions into better Actions. Price range is so you can trash Curses with it if you want. The fact that you can't cross types makes it way worse than Altar or Expand. It costs more, draws a card, optionally trashes, and generally doesn't reduce the number of stop cards in your deck, so it isn't really comparable to Remake.
I considered having it Expand instead of straight gain, but making it faster than Rebuild is probably a bigger problem than the fact that $5 Treasures sometimes exist. Just buy a couple of these when Crown shows up.

New fun litmus test, if you can't say "FanCard isn't really comparable to Remake", FanCard has major issues and needs to be purged with fire.

a bigger problem than the fact that $5 Treasures sometimes exist.

Your fan card is complete trash when a curser is in the kingdom and a terminal 2$ Curse card is also available in the kingdom, so you should withdraw it immediately.  I'm providing the kind of high quality input that makes fan card creation subforum very useful btw.

Shanty Library
cost $2 - Action
+1 Card
Put this into your hand.
If this is the first time you played Shanty Library in this turn, +2 Actions.
Revised a card named Animal Trail from https://s456.hatenablog.com/entry/2019/08/29/171427 .
It converts Actions to Cards.
Super strong? Maybe yes, but the second Shanty Library in hand will be useless. Not broken.
Super strong with Champion? Of course yes!

EDIT: forgot to add "once per turn" clause.

Play it twice and you get +2 Cards, +1 Action, so this is strictly better than lab, but not better enough to cost $6. [EDIT:]Oh nevermind, it's not strictly better than lab because the 2nd one in your hand does nothing. Still, it should probably cost more than $2.

My entry:

Ancestral Crypt
Cost $5 - Action
+1 Card.
Trash up to two cards from your hand. For each card you trashed, take a coin token per $2 in its cost.

I now like that card more. It is just like a small Tactician and also has nice interaction with Faithful Hound, some Alt-VP strategies (Vineyard, Gardens, Duke ...), Tunnel and Grand Market.

Nothing. Just struck me as odd that you suggested the change and then commented on it.

Reveal your hand. Reveal the top card of your deck. If it costs more than any other card in your hand, discard it and +1VP; otherwise, put it into your hand and +1 Action.
