I donít get why this needs new keywords. Simply use gain, keep the once per turn clause and explicitly make it a non-Supply card.

Yeah, I'm still on board team "non supply and gain". I get that won't work with the cards being yours and set aside at the start of the game. But it begs the question, why?


Can you gain a card you already own?

I don't get the "non supply" part. The Equipment cards are non-Supply cards and are accordingly designed. Like Heirlooms, they have no own pile, therefore no cost*, and no (This is not in the Supply.).

I'm glad my other suggesting might work for you.

To be clear with the above, what I (and I assume @segura) was suggesting was that players don't already own Equipment and that they are non supply piles.

My goal was to help accomplish the goals you want with the Equipment mechanic within the confines of standards that already exist. i.e. trying to minimize the # of new rules ("take" owning cards at the beginning that are set aside, etc).

I really appreciate your work and help in improving my cards. Please don't get me wrong.

I have prepared a version with your suggested wording (left) and posted the previous version to the right, just for a better comparison, text wise and aesthetic-wise:



What do you guys/gals think about that?


The second one is so much clearer and more understandable.

The Equipment cards are a great idea! :) I like how the Equipment and their associated cards interact with each other, while both of them can still be played individually, as gaining the Equipment can be gained without its associated card.

I do not know the Nocturne rules good enough, so I may ask a question: Has every turn in Dominion theoretically a Night Phase? Otherwise, you could set aside junk cards with Observatory and they would stay their until the end of the game, if you choose to not have any Night cards, right?

The Night phase only exists in games with Night cards. Since Telescope is a Night card, games using it have a Night phase, which happens even if you don't personally have any Night cards, like how the Action phase still happens if you don't have Actions.

An initial note here is that there seems to be an imbalance of terminals, I think there are a couple too many non-terminal actions and not quite enough terminals.

Wishing Fountain seems really bad at 5 next to Laboratory, the trashing seems like it isn't enough to justify the price tag.

Calmness has a confusing wording, I'm not really sure what it does.

Burnish is too good with in the early game, particularly the opening. Maybe it should cost $2.

Season's Grace is pretty terrible next to sinister plot which is also +1 Card every other turn but a lot cheaper and more flexible.

Emissary could also use a clearer wording.

This is strictly better than Feast and by a lot.  I know Feast isn't completely relevant anymore, but it was removed for being boring, not weak.  This fixes why Feast is boring in a way that makes it much stronger, especially at a lower price.  I think it needs more restrictions.

It also compares very favorably to Improve.

You're right, I'm removing it's ability to trash itself, which was actually totally unintentional.

I'm fine with it in comparison to Improve because it lacks a lot of Improve's flexibility and Improve gives you some economy early.

I think this should clarify "the player to your left chooses one for you to receive:"
Yup, totally should. I'll correct it.

A Coppersmith variant that also gives attack protection. I think this is just a Coppersmith without much difference a lot of the time. The attack protection doesn't matter enough to put this above a regular Coppersmith, particularly since it requires keeping Coppers around.

This is an anti-trashing attack for your opponents that forces them to get back junk if they trash it. This isn't very good. It has timing issues where you often can't activate the attack when it matters and that creates some feelsbad moments with a 5 cost oneshot.

A ruin-based junker that gives you a way to mitigate its attack with your own copy. The main issue I see here is that it can snowball, since the first player to get one can somewhat lock out their opponents with ruins, but it doesn't seem like a huge issue. The self-countering nature creates some interesting decisions.

First impression is that this encourages boring strategies, since it just makes you gain a bunch of silvers to win. Not a lot of nuance here.

The attack is pretty interesting, a good mix of punishing, but not so much that it makes games miserable, the command half especially so. It should be unable to hit durations with the attack and the command option, since that makes tracking tricky.

A nice, simple 2-cost card. Not much to say, I like the sleek design.

This is a good concept, but States don't seem like the best way to implement this. It's somewhat confusing.

The versatility is very nice. I also like the decisions keeping or using it creates.

This seems like it slows down games, since every single time you gain a card you have to wait for anyone with the states to make a choice and potentially resolve another card.

The abilities of this to do megaturns are interesting, but they're sort of awkward. This is more of a pseudo extra turn generator than anything else, so I think it's a bit overtuned.
Midas by Spheremonk
http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=18987.msg856401#msg856401
Hexes as attacks are pretty underpowered, so this is weak. Best case scenario, this gives your opponents a curse and you get to make $3 per copy of this you have. That's not as much as it sounds because you need two copies of a 5 cost card and they can block it. I think lowering the cost and maybe changing the numbers a little would be best.

This was super weak at $5, but I really like it at $3. It creates some extremely interesting gameplay. It's a bit narrow, but in a good way.

Finally we are free of the prison of putting when you play this" on kingdom treasures. Great changes all around.

Not sure if this has been posted before, but Alchemist + Star Chart means that with a thin enough deck you can basically always find your potion.

A note here is that these states should not be like Lost in the Woods, because that's basically an Artifact. It should have a copy for each player.

Can you specify that more?
The way Lost In The Woods works is that only one person can have it at a time and it gets passed around, meaning it functions like Artifacts from Renaissance. The rest of the states can be held by multiple people.

A card that interacts with Prosperity's litany of expensive cards, and with expensive card in other sets.
