Transmute isn't actually weak. Its problem is that—unlike all the other Potion-cost cards—you almost never want more than one copy of it.

That's unfortunate if true, given that one of Transmute's abilities is gaining more copies of Transmute.

What I mean is, you rarely want to buy more than one copy. In the instances where you want more, you can easily gain them with Transmute itself.

Do you know when we'll figure out more about new expansions?

So...errr....Donald X. this'd be my request - more Alchemy-compatible (heck, call it Dark Arts and fling in cards for being nefarious against each other :D) and interactive...but in truth am pretty happy...just feel a bit sad as our Alchemy cards are a bit negected.
Alchemy is the least popular set, so it just doesn't make any sense to make more of it. It wouldn't be doing that instead of not doing it; it would be doing that instead of doing something else. Something else would be better.

Awww.....no I can see the reasoning.

Been thinking about this overnight. One other card type I'd like to see one more of is something else that sifts through the Trash. I like games that incorporate the Trash into gameplay and when setting up a randomised game, if it looks like trashing will be a key part of the game then I might substitute in a Rogue or Graverobber to liven things up, but another card that incorporates trash sifting with something else would give more options.

Any announcements are up to RGG. So, so far I can tell you that there's a new large Dominion expansion coming out in 2015.

Is large normal sized or Dark Ages sized?

I'm guessing the new expansion is going to be completely all-new cards, like Guilds was, since you've already shown all the old outtakes?

Despite Jay posting again about the set, he has yet to address this issue.

There was this time on BGG, this guy was all, "I heard this thing about the set," a thing that was not true. And I said, that's not true. And he said "oh I also heard this other thing."

It turns out that the way to not tell you guys about the set is to not tell you guys about the set.

I can tell you about Guilds though. http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=8557.0

Is it true that the new set will just be repackaged sets of Ascension with "+1 action" written on the cards in sharpie?

What convinced you to come back to Dominion and create a new set? Other than money, which is a totally valid reason.

I'm happy there will be a new set, because more Dominion cards is never a bad thing in my book. But my potential storage solution is getting more back breaking with every new set.

I recommend modular storage. I use a tuckbox for each set (Alchemy and Cornucopia both in one box and Dark Ages spread across two boxes). I think this is the kind I use: http://www.bcwsupplies.com/cat/trading-card/trading-card-boxes/330-card-storage-box

Man, my Mine/Mint confusion was on the level where I thought Beyond Awesome was making that joke.

It wasn't money; it's nice to have a project that you know will get published, but uh a Dominion expansion has no chance of being a dud but also no chance of being a big hit. It only sells to the portion of Dominion fans that want another expansion.

All the reasons for doing spin-offs instead still stand. But I made a spin-off and took out the Dominion part and that's Kingdom Builder. And I made another spin-off and took out the Dominion part and that's Temporum. And it seemed like, even if I manage to make some spin-offs, I'm sure not cranking them out like I once thought I might. So at some point I would be making another Dominion expansion, for the publishers and fans that I wasn't offering spin-offs to. And one day it seemed like a good project to work on next.

Prince has been in the outtakes, too. We'll see.

Ironscout just leaves those in the "cards being revealed area" for the rest of the game. It's like an unreliable but reusable Island, naturally.

If you aren't told what to do with a revealed card, it stays where it is. Wishing Well for example does not say what to do with the revealed card.

You'd still have to be careful with the odering.  Do you get to resolve the evaluations upon revealing in any order?  Or do you do top card first?
