What do all these cards have in common, and what is the only other card in Dominion that shares that feature?

noble brigand
mining village
feast
swindler
masquerade
thief
jester
embargo
ambassador
mountebank
treasure map
saboteur
pirate ship

edit - i forgot bishop!

Do the card names have anything to do with it?

At first I thought it had something to do with "when played, can trash cards other than those in the player's hand", but Ambassador doesn't fit. Could be something along this line however.

Edit: Oh, and Mountebank doesn't fit either.

Hint #1:

These cards can be subdivided into two discrete categories, like so:

noble brigand, swindler, masquerade, thief, jester, ambassador, mountebank, saboteur, pirate ship, bishop

mining village, feast, embargo, treasure map.

The missing card fits in the first category.

Answer: These are all the cards that can return one player's gamestate to its starting state; 3 estates, 7 coppers, nothing else. At least, that's what I had in mind.

No. Islands are notoriously dishonorable places.

And what about -----------Horn of Plenty-------- as another missing card ?

Chocolate is like victory points in Dominion. Both taste good but they'll hurt you if you eat too much of it instead of something else in your early days.

That, and you can also trash 2 while the Gold pile is empty.

How can FG return your deck to its original state?

Trash it when your opponent gains a Province and there are no Golds left in the supply.

Trash it when your opponent gains a Province and there are no Golds left in the supply.
So we can include gainers : play many cost-reducers (bridge, highway...), play any card "gain a card costing up to..." (including trashers for benefit) to gain a province, and yours opponents will be able to trash their FG's and return their deck to starting state.
EDIT : Ooops, nooo, because they can't return their deck with the "gainer card" alone, they need FG's !
