If they were fan cards

Post in this topic what the response would be to official cards in an alternate universe where that card was the only official card that didn't exist, and the idea was proposed as a fan card.

I'll Start

"It's trying to turn Mystic into a sometimes Lab, but unlike Mystic, the card guess is almost always luck. Are you sure you didn't mean to put the mystic effect BEFORE the cantrip? It only combos with Scout :P and Apothecary, Cartographer, Navigator and Wandering Minstrel.  Its main problem is it encourages boring decks with no variety so you can guess right more often, and you don't want to be designing cards like that."

"Whoa. You do realise that you'd be able to use this card to activate on trash effects. $2 Goons and Familiars here we come. In games without them it's just a moat that can't be used in engines. If you want to use it's royal seal effect it takes up a slot in your hand. Too kingdom dependent"

"Trashing up to 4 cards for $2? The only cards that can trash this fast are forge, which costs $7 for a good reason, and count, which is guaranteed to destroy your hand, and at $5 you can't open with it often. At $2 you can ALWAYS open with it, and you always will. Bump the price up, and/or get rid of the "up to"."

"This is just a weaker a Noble Brigand for the same price. Yes weaker; it can trash other players copper? You do realise trashing your opponent's copper helps them, right?"

"A Scavenger without the top decking? The entire point of Scavenger is the top decking. No way would I ever spend an action on a shuffle. Yes it will combo with Stash, but you won't be able to get a province every turn unlike scavenger. $3 is the same as $4 in most situations, and I would never buy this."

"A victory point every time you buy something?  Do you have any idea how ridiculous that would get?  You could score thousands of VPs with this out and ignore Provinces entirely."

Bandit Camp: "What's a Spoils?"

Marauder: "Again, what are these Spoils, and what's a Ruins!"

Pillage: "Too political! What are Spoils!?"

Spoils: "...oh"

"How are you supposed to find it when you reshuffle? Look through your entire deck and pull it out? The only thing I can think of that wouldn't be super–time-consuming would be to put some distinctive mark on the back of it, but that violates the whole principle of a card game. Anyway, a silver clone isn't such an awesome card that it actually matters to you where in the reshuffle it turns up."

This is the only one I haven't been able to figure out!

"Nifty idea, but remember how simultaneously-triggered effects resolve! They go in turn order starting with the active player. So you'd pass a card to your left-hand opponent, and then they'd pass to their left, and so on. So as this card is written, it doesn't really have the effect you want it to have; most of the time, everyone just passes around your card and you get it back."

I didn't actually have on in mind!

But I expected guesses might included Possession and Scout.
