(not sure why I called it Painter, just cuz)

Painter
Action - $5

Put your deck into your discard pile.  Look through your discard pile and put two cards from it into your hand.

Way too good.  This is almost certainly (at worst) terminal +$4, with amazing cycling.  Most likely, it is even better than that.

What about:
Action - $5
Put your deck in your discard pile. Look through your discard pile, and put a Treasure from it into your hand.

It's better than a terminal Gold if you buy a Gold. Very good with Bank/Platinum, but buying those cards isn't easy.

I thought, why not just limit it to say the next five cards, instead of the whole deck? How about draw 5 then discard 3, and you have a very similar effect. Then I remembered Embassy.

Would it be better to decrease it to one card taken from the discard, or to increase the price to $6?  Or perhaps to lose the deck-discard?

Or maybe change it to two non-Treasure cards.

I think a drawback (a serious one) would be better.

Yes... this is begging for something like "Each other player may draw a card."

I like "Each other player may put their deck into their discard pile."

And if that's not enough, also "If they do, they may look through their discard pile and put a card on top of their deck."
