I see what you did there!

But in terms of actual card behaviors, I think Horse Traders : Stables :: Trading Post : Spice Merchant is fairly on-target.

I wand to do something that says Fool's Gold : Treasure Map :: ? : ??, but I can't think of a good companion pair.

I'd say no to Witch : Young Witch, but:

King's Court : Throne Room :: Smithy : Moat with no attacks :: Expand : Remodel :: Gold : Silver  ;)

Workshop:Woodcutter :: Remodel:Salvager!

I'm surprised it took this long to notice this one; it's really exact.

^You're right, but I think it should be Workshop:Remodel::Woodcutter:Salvager. There is no real relationship between Workshop and Woodcutter per se.

This doesn't quite work, but it's close:

...Oh, I see what you mean there—player chooses what to gain/discard vs. opponent chooses what to gain/discard? That's not bad.

Here's a similarly inexact one: Swindler:Saboteur :: Salvager:Remodel.

I guess I'm not seeing it as exact.  Close but not exact...

^The way I see it, when the trashers trash Estates (or any other $2 card), they provide an ability identical to the other cards, which is pretty exact.

Trash 0 cards. Gain a card costing up to ($2 + $2). : Trash 0 cards. +1 Buy. +$2.  ::
Trash 1 card. Gain a card costing up to ($2 + cost of trashed card). : Trash 1 card. +1 Buy. +(cost of trashed card).

It's super-exact! Add "trash 1 card" and replace "$2" with "cost of trashed card", and you map the cards to each other perfectly.

I guess Salvager ignores potion costs and Remodel doesn't, but apart from that they're exact analogues, anyway.

Fairly close:

Witch : Familiar :: Smithy : Alchemist

Witch : Familiar :: Smithy : Lab is exact, though, in terms of card behavior (though less so in terms of price).
