Makes Marauder and Cultist so much worse, and removes the interesting decisions of when you would want to buy a Ruins for its effect... also no need to say "another" in the text.

Well, one could argue that Cultist and Marauder have power to spare, but then that raises the question about why not nerfing curses with a house rule too.

There are rare occasions where there are not +buy on the board except Ruins, so it may be a bit unfair. But the reality is if they got 1 Ruined Market they probably have other useless Ruins, or they have too many villages to spare on the action giving them nothing but a +buy.

Why not make them all +1action, or all +1card? Otherwise I'll just play Cultist once and use it for the on trash benefit.

Although this begs the question, would a Ruined Chapel work?

Too good. Still a pretty terrible card, but way better than any of the other Ruins. (Assuming you mean "Trash 1 card from your hand.")

Well I left it open in my post, but I did realise that "Trash 1 card" would be way too good. I mean, people open Trade Route sometimes. But would "Trash 1 Ruins" work?

Why?

This is the question I'd still like answered. A lot of the point of Ruins is that they're more interesting than Curses. Mostly that's because there are 5 different Ruins. Why change that?

I don't see a need to transform Ruins into some sort of Confusions.
They're fine the way they are, because you can give someone a bad card and say "hey, at least it's not a Curse!"

The only thing I can think of is that the OP doesn't like the luck factor of the Ruins.  Is there anything else?

If it's the luck factor, then what if Ruins were

Choose one: do what this Ruin normally does, or gain a Ruins and return this card to the supply.

So now if you have an extra action, and the top Ruin looks better, you can switch it out. There's still a luck factor, but it's smaller.

Ruined Scout
+1 Action
Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Put the revealed Victory cards into your hand. Put the other cards on top of your deck in any order.

Yes, I left the +1 Action on purpose. Yes, it is better than Ruined Village. Yes, it is yet another Scout-joke.

More seriously, how about

Ruined Militia
Each other player discards down to 4

Ruined Thief
Same as Thief but turn 1 card per player instead of 2.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

I learned what the word means in Magic: the Gathering before I learned what it actually means, so this is very difficult for me when I'm tired.

When another player plays an attack card, you may discard this. If you do, the attack has no effect on you.

I was thinking that a "ruined" Moat would be "Dry Moat", but Wikipedia says that dry moats were actually a thing.  Hm.

Isn't a Ruined Moat simply a Bridge?
