Just wondering, do cards like trader, or watchtower count? (They don't gain or return cards, they prevent you from gaining cards which also affects the end game)
What about tomb (even though it doesn't always give you vp on your turn, it makes it possible with cards like swindler)?

Dueling Witch
Action-Reaction

Each other player gains a Curse.
----------------------------------------------------
When any player gains a card (including you), you may discard this from your hand to return a copy of that card to the supply from your hand or the top of your discard pile.


The reaction by itself isn't great, but the presence of this card gives you a reason to pick it up for the reaction, because this is its own defense.

You probably want to have the discard come after returning the card (maybe set aside in between), otherwise the curse won't be on top of the discard pile anymore.

Thanks, I missed that. Fixed.

Previous version had you discard this first, which was an oversight.

First off, this wants the Attack type. Secondly, DXV has said that players don't like attacks that don't give you something else, and I personally don't think that the reaction is enough of a something else. Just a thought.

Outside of alt-vp or colony games, this feels better than duchy. I'll probably just save all of my totems until the end and cash them out when my opponent buys his last province (probably last or 2nd to last province bought). As long as you play right, it's not likely you'll get left with these on the mat. So basically totem is worth 4 points (to duchy's 3), isn't a dead card in your deck (unlike duchy), and in the event where you need some fodder for TfB, totem can be called early and trashed without losing VP (unlike duchy).

Yes to the reactions - they can influence the endgame on a turn that isn't yours.

Tomb would also not be disqualified. Alt-VP cards count too (eg Feodum counts, since you can gain Silvers not on your turn with reactions like Trader and Beggar).

Just a general point though that I would prefer that the central idea of the challenge not be an "edge case" for the card you design. If your card is great, but it's a puzzle to figure out when and how it influences the endgame on a turn that isn't yours, it's not going to do very well this round.

So? Distant Lands is nearly always better than Duchy.
I don't think that the card is particularly exciting, being a bit like a reverse Distant Lands (instead of leaving your deck, it starts out of deck and somewhen enters your deck). But being often better than Duchy is definitely not an argument against it.
Also, play isn't as simple as you made it out: in pile-emptying situations, whoever bought too many Totems can be screwed (empty piles, buy Duchies instead of Provinces).

Edit: cost reduced to $4. Feels like a better price, at the risk of making it more relevant early so deviating a little from the endgame brief.

Clearly, I haven't done this recently enough. For now, I'll bump the cost up to and add +2 Cards.

mmm after you call it, it is a dead card (unless there's some other card that lets you put it on your tavern mat) but still agree on all other points (better than duchy, tfb fodder)

When another player buys a card, you may return a non-Treasure card from your hand to the supply. If you did, gain a cheaper card, then +1 card.

I don't think so, because there is guaranteed to be a defense on the board for Dueling Witch. When playing with Witch, often the only defense is to let is cycle back through your deck and trash it. There is not often a Watchtower/Moat/Guardian/Lighthouse type card. Here, there is guaranteed to be a Watchtower-like defense on the board.

Although that said, if they are on the same board, it is actually strictly better. Huh. + instead, maybe? Or +1 Card +? Just +1 Card, or +? I think it becomes to unbalanced after increasing the cost to , or making it non-terminal, so those are out. What about giving it +1 Buy?

Jetty $5  Action - Duration
Now and at the start of your next turn, +2 Cards.
-
If the game would end while this is in play, there is an additional round of turns for players with Jetty in play. (There is only one round of extra turns from Jetty)
Made a Wharf-Fleet hybrid; I think I got the wording (and self-shapeshifting) right so there aren't infinite Jetty turns at the end of the game. Lemme know if that wording works or not, yeah?
Name taken from this post that I saw like five years ago:



FAQ: When playing with this and Fleet, extra turns from Fleet happen first. Having a Jetty in play during the original end of game or during the end of the Fleet turn qualifies a player for the Jetty turn.
.
Updates: modified the wording to specify there are not infinite Jetty turns at the end of the game if you can keep it in play. Added FAQ errata to describe how this works with Fleet.

Royal Demesne, Action - Duration, Costs $4
Now and at the start of your next turn: +1 Card and +$1.
-
While this is in play,
when another player gains a Victory card costing $4 or more, +1%.

After sleeping on it, Bonfire of Vanities is still broken and needs to be reworked. I'm returning to Royal Demesne.
The card reduces the advantage of a Duchy, Province or Colony by 1 Victory per card, and if an alt-VP Victory card is present, that one too. But only if this card is in play. To prevent the card from playing another RD, I replaced the +1 Action with +1 Card.

Since I'm new to this, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to attempt both options or if I can only present one.
Executioner, Action - Attack, Costs $4
+$2. Select a Kingdom card pile. Trash up to 3 cards from that pile.

You can only have one submission. But also, the second submission can't do anything on another player's turn.

New submission is a split pile:





This nerfs Totem in two ways:
1. Totem is on the bottom of a split-pile, and the first card in the pile gets worse when you call your Totems.
2. Only one Totem can be called per Province gained, so your VP from Totems will never outpace the total VP from Provinces other players have.

Here is my submission for this week.  Bargainer is a Woodcutter on-play with a Haggler-like Reaction that can work on other players' turns.  It's similar to Charm, where depending on what you're trying to buy, you sometimes might choose to play it for +$2 and the Buy instead using the Haggler ability.  Unlike Haggler, this can gain VP cards (e.g. Buy Province, gain Duchy), but since you discard the Bargainer, it's less powerful than it seems.  You can also use the reaction on other players' turns to sneak in an extra gain, if you're lucky enough to have it in your hand.

Bonfire of Vanities, Action - Reaction - Attack, Costs $3
+2 Cards. Trash a card from your hand.
-
When another player gains a Kingdom card, you may reveal this from your hand to trash one card from that Kingdom card pile in the Supply.

Fixed the prior submission. hhelibebcnofnena said I can only submit one. So, for the purposes of the contest, I'll submit Bonfire of Vanities.

There's no rule saying that you can only reveal a given Reaction card once per triggering event, so when somebody gains a Kingdom card, you could just reveal the same Bonfire of Vanities numerous times to empty that pile.

When designing a reaction, always remember that there is no limit on how often you reveal a Reaction. Also, just remove the non-submissions altogether.

what's the Attack part of this? Could one player stop the supply-trashing by having a moat?
