I think this takes too much away from the brutality of Sea Hag. Obviously thereīs room for brutality to be taken away buy I think this is a bit much.

Eh. A quick attempt for Spy. Didn't really think this through, there might be issues with this version. Anyway, here goes nothing:



Biggest problem here is that if the top deck revealed card doesn't match any card in your opponent's hand, then all subsequent Spies will fail. For its price, it's pretty oof. It should probably discard the top card of their deck no matter what, but this would add more words to this iteration of Spy, and it's already so full of 'em.

No you can't, it has to discard the curse to give them another.

I'm starting to think that maybe it's worth trying Spy at $5 with +$1. The idea just being, you're going to buy way fewer of them at that price point, so they'll slow the game down less. That's the theory, anyway.

My Spy
Doesn't slow the game as much because there's no choice involved.

Quote
Spy
$4 - Action - Attack
+1 Card
+1 Action.
Each other player reveals the top card of their deck. If it's an action or treasure costing at least $2, they discard it. Otherwise, they put it back. If no one discarded a card, +$1.

Sea Hag variant:



Sea Hag
$4 Action - Attack

Each other player gains a Curse.
If this is the first time you played a Sea Hag
this turn, they gain it onto their deck.
If there are one or more empty Supply piles, +$1.

Too harsh in 4-player games. Imagine 3 Curses are on your deck when you end your 3rd turn.

Good point, but being 4th in a game with a strong, cheap Curser is harsh anyway. As the 4th player in such a scenario, I wouldn't buy a Sea Hag myself, but instead a powerful $4 cost card (not considering the possibility of a $5-$2 opening). A strong Trasher, if available. A Smithy could solve that problem in a different way. Even when the 4th player can't do anything against having 3 Curses on their next turn, would it be really worse than having those Curses scattered in their deck? Having a turn with 3 Curses means that the next hand is unaffected.

This is basically a mini-Rabble that is more customizable to cooperate with Bandid or Pirate Ship. It is chainable. I'm not sure about the vanilla bonus; I was original thinking about +2 Cards, but that'd possibly make its chainability too good.

This is clearly stronger than the printed version, especially in multiplayer. I don't think Sea Hag needs to be made even stronger, though the empty-pile bonus is a nice idea ...

I don't think it needs to be brutal. and Seaside needs more trashing.

Look at the top 3 cards of your deck. Put one in your hand and discard the rest.

Each other player reveals the top card of their deck, and discards it or puts it back, your choice.

Just a bit of a buff to the personal card selection/sifting. Vanilla Spy is actually pretty popular in my game group, but we do acknowledge it is not very powerful. I think this change would make it very desirable just for the non-attack effect.

This doesn't solve the problem with spy that it takes too long to resolve

Well, this should address that issue.

I hadnít noticed this thread before now! I donít think Iím in time for a submission this round but I love the idea of updating cards. My ideas are rough and the wording isnít right I know, but the idea is there!

My Sea Hag would be:
Cost $4
+$2
Each other player reveals the top card of their deck. If itís:
a Curse, put it back.
Anything else, discard it and gain a Curse on top of your deck.

My Spy would be:
Cost $5
+1 Card
+1 Action
+$1
You may reveal the top 3 cards of your deck and discard the Victory cards

Here are my judgings:

I won't be giving comments individually, since most cards ended up being similar.
I was looking for cards that were:
1. Innovative
2. Bore a resemblance to the original, and
3. Fixed the problem with the original

Honourable mentions: Xen3k, D782802859, LastFootnote
Best spy: grrgrrgrr
Best hag: spineflu

Overall winner: grrgrrgrr

Sorry if you don't agree with the judging, but this is my first time :)

Sick! So I suppose it's my job to judge the next contest. Anyway, next contest will be

Card Updating Contest 2

Make a new version of one (or more) of the following cards:
Explorer
Mine
Royal Seal

I hope you don't mind that I have not put parentheses here. Just use your own interpretation of what those cards should be.

Judging will be in about two weeks.

EDIT: Here are the templates

I have made an Excel file that makes generating those links easier: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5gi45a3vcep6dmb/Dominion%20template%20creator.xls?dl=0

EDIT2: Slightly modified the Royal Seal URL and Explorer URL.

EDIT3: You may edit multiple cards.
