We need a reaction card that cares about being revealed (as by a bandit or a scrying pool) another good one would be reacting to gaining coppers, gain coffers instead (similar to trader)

I remember discussing this a while ago; can't find the thread though. One issue is the rules ambiguity about when a card is revealed. Is it only when a specific instruction told you to reveal cards? Or is it any time a card becomes publicly visible? When you discard cards, you cause the top card of your discard pile to be revealed, for example.

The Goko/Making Fun online Dominion had a "reveal window" that showed you what cards were being revealed to other players. That could work.

Something like giving Coffers, Villagers or VP would cause the fewest issues with resolution orders

The problem with on-reveal triggers is that the number of cards revealed varies wildly. Diggers like Golem can reveal a huge number of cards.
About the second idea, Mountebank is the only Copper junker, or Swindler once the Curses are out, so this shouldn't be broken. Beggar would become pretty good but that's a two card combo you could live with. The only real issue I see is that this Reaction allows you to convert each Buy into Coffers.
