Short Traveller line

Here's a short traveller line.

Servant
$4 Action-Traveller
+2 Cards
+1 Buy
-
When you discard this from play, you may exchange it for a (next card).

Informant
$5* Action-Attack-Traveller
Gain a card costing up to $4. Each other player discards a copy of it, or reveals a hand with no copies.
-
When you discard this from play, you may exchange it for a (next card).
(This is not in the Supply.)

Henchman
$6* Action-Duration
For the rest of the game, at the start of your turn, choose one: +1 Card; +1 Action; +1 Buy; or + $1.
(This stays in play. This is not in the Supply.)

I like this idea. I think that the last card is massively overpowered, you get it really fast and it's much stronger than Hireling, which you often get later. This is a really strong opener, giving you a clean shuffle after round 4, and picks you up a 5 cost engine piece round 5-7, which then becomes superpowered once you get some + Card Champions cards in play. Also the card #2 should be an Attack.

Also, last-level Travellers (well, threy're not really Travellers themselves but whatever) don't need to be permanent Durations, and permanent Durations don't need to be at the end of a Traveller line.

Little thingy: the second card should be an Attack.

I like the cards but the power level is way off, they are simply too good.

Take the last card, it is better than Teacher in three ways:
First, you got to jump through 2 less steps, the effect triggers one turn earlier and the +1 Card token (often the best option of Teacher) is not restricted to one Action Supply pile.
Teacher is only better on one respect, the versatility of the tokens and the ability to use several of them (if the game is long enough).

$6 here is much easier to reach than in the original Traveller lines, so it should be weaker accordingly. The suggested $6 is stronger than Teacher and comparable with Champion.
I would suggest a slightly improved Hireling, e.g. a half-Page at start of the turn.

At start of each of your turns for the rest of the game, choose one:
+1 Card, +1 Action, +1 Coin, +1 Buy

Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to repurpose the original $6 for a full traveller line later. I went with grep's half-page for this line, and I weakened the second card to a workshop attack. The names are not great, their just so it's easier to discuss for now.
This brings me to an interesting question about feedback on cards. If I basically steal grep's suggestion, is it really my card design to claim?
