Order of gaining card vs. on gain effects

When resolving an on gain effect, is the gained card already on the discard pile, does the effect happen first, or is it simultaneous (i.e. I can choose the order)?

Example:
I buy Cursed Village. The next Hex is Locusts but my deck is empty so resolving it triggers a shuffle.
Do I put Cursed Village in my discard pile before or after I shuffle?

Before.
First you gain the card (which means putting it wherever it goes, usually your discard pile), then "when gain" happens. It's the same with effects like "when trash" and "when discard", etc.

Compare to Trader's effect, which happens before you (would) gain the card in question.

You can look at Inn as a simplest-case scenario. It clarifies right on the card that it is already in the discard pile when you do its when-gain.
