I have just the card for this:

Quote
Rubber Duchy
$4 - Victory
Worth 2VP.
-
When you trash this, put it into your hand.
When you trash a Rubber Duchy for the second time in one turn, +1VP.
Rule: This isn't a kingdom card. In games using the Rubber Duchy, it replaces the Duchy pile.
It's impossible to trace whether you trashed the same Rubber Duchy both times.

EDIT: Maybe you just mean, trash any 2 Rubber Duchies, get the benefit. But the the wording is at least ambiguous.

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.

Yeah, it should be

[upper text]
---
The first time you trash a Rubber Duchy each turn, put it into your hand. The second time, +1VP

or if you want it to go to your hand both times, "When you trash this, put it into your hand. If it's the second time you've trashed a RD this turn, +1VP."

Here's a quick idea:

Split pile
Sawmill
$3 - Action
+$1
+1 Buy
If this is the first time you played a Sawmill this turn, +$1.
-
When you trash this, gain a Gold.

Landowner
$5 - Action - Command
Trash a card from your hand. You may play up to two differently named non-Command Action cards from the supply costing less than it, leaving them there. If you didn't play any cards, +1 Action.

THIS IS NO LONGER MY SUBMISSION, MY NEW SUBMISSION IS NEXT PAGE.

It is intended to be the 2nd time you trash any Rubber Duchy. Is the following wording better or should I use Silverspawn's wording?

"When you trash this, put it into your hand.
The second time you trash any Rubber Duchy in one turn, +1VP."

Here is my submission:

   

Somehow I am into Heirlooms lately.

Glade together with its Heirloom Lost Book can provide a pretty fast thining boost early on. However, you have to hit $5 and pass on a 5 cost card in order to do so. Nevertheless, I think it is a strong card and I think it is fine to design strong cards. :)
 
EDIT: The Heirloom now has a cost and the text on Glade should be correct now. Thanks for the hints!

Dandelion Field - $3
1VP
---------
When you gain this, trash up to 3 Copper in play.

When you trash this, gain a Wish from its pile.

A pretty efficient way to trash copper, but it does junk your deck with another Estate. If there are other trashers it can be traded in for a Wish. It may not be necessary to incorporate Wishes into the design, but I like it. Critiques, suggestions, and criticisms are welcome as always.

Agistor
Types: Action
Cost: $4
Trash a card from your hand. Gain a Horse per $1 in the trashed card's cost.
When you gain or trash this, gain 2 Horses.
Trash-for-benefit, benefit being Horses, so like a terminal Apprentice.  Agistors come and go with extra Horses so you can get additional Agistors to trash to each other (Agistor trashes Agistor for 6 Horses!).  Coming with 2 Horses is similar to Experiment, but Agistor costs more and comes with Agistor, obviously.

Yeah, perhaps. Do you think that their is a price point for this card that would make that reward reasonable, or is a Wish too good of a reward?

When you trash this, reveal a copper from hand to gain a Wish from its pile.

Ok, so the reward to get a Wish is now conditional, and the on-gain effect is not optional and makes meeting those conditions harder. So, I am not sure how often a Wish will actually be obtained by this, but it does at least hinders if not delays the ability to get a Wish.

A similar but more balanced reward could just be a card costing up to $5.

That is true, but I was trying to play off the whole connection between dandelions and wishes. If it ends up too ungainly I will likely just switch it over to something like that. Thanks for the response by the way.

Yeah, on second thought, I think I was trying to be too fancy with it at first. Here is a version without the Wish as D782802859 suggested.

+1 action at the start of the turn sounds more... symmetrical. (Also, Villages are for extra actions, trashing it now might be a bad thing)

You may +1 Coffers. If you do, each other player gets +1 Coffers.

I'm sure there's a better way to phrase the "you may" portion that actually verbs.
Priced the way it is so you can't gain it with wishes but that it's still useful for tfb.
Probably not worth it for the Coffers but may be useful for hitting certain price spikes.

A cheaper Gold-with-buy, but it comes with a penalty. Use it wisely to overcome that! It turns into a real Gold if you can find a way to trash it.

Here's an attempt at reworking a once-OP card I made years ago:



Quote
Junkyard
Action - Looter, $4
+1 Action
You may gain a Ruins to your hand.
Set aside any number of Action cards. +2 Cards per card set aside this way. At the start of Clean-up, discard the set aside Action cards.
You may trash this.
-
When you trash this, +2 Cards

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

Worth more dead than alive, that is what Valkyries care about. In the Norse mythology, in the aftermath of a battle they pick up the fallen Warriors and take half of them to Valhalla, Odin’s eternal hall of heroes and the other half to the fields of Freyja, the goddess of fertility.

My new submission:


Valkyrie
$5 – Action
Quote
Choose one: Exile a non-Victory
card from the Supply; or trash a
card from your hand.
------------------------------
When you trash this, +1 VP per
differently named card you have
in Exile that has at least one
copy in the trash.


My first submission:



Valkyrie
$4 – Action - Night
Quote
If it’s your Action phase,
gain a card costing up to $4.
Otherwise, trash a card you
have in play.
----------------------------
When you trash this, +1VP
per differently named card
in the trash.
