Border Border Border Copper
Cost: $9
Treasure

$1
When you gain this, gain 3 cards costing less than it.

Border Border Border Border Copper
Cost: $12

$1
When you gain this, gain 4 cards costing less than it.


These are not OP in any way.

I just realized that if you had *both* of these in a Platinum game, it would make a horrendous combo.

I have $12 in my buy phase. I buy a Border Border Border Border Copper. I gain a Colony and three Border Border Border Coppers. I gain 8 Provinces and a Duchy. (Or 4 BBBC and 12 Provinces in a 3-4 player game)

At the start of your cleanup phase you may reveal and discard this from your hand if you have at least one action remaining and this in hand and can give a reasonable explanation as to why you wouldn't have played this card if it were just a Village. If you do, gain a card costing less than this.

I don't know much about fan cards, so there's probably already one like this. But here goes.

Resurrection $4 Action
You may play this card when you have no actions remaining.
If you do:
+1 Card
+1 Action

Actual fan cards that you think are good ideas shouldn't go in this thread, you should make its own thread.  (Unless you do think it's a bad card idea)

The "+1" key of this post is broken. Whenever i want to add a second upvote, it deletes my first one. Could somebody fix that?

@ Sudgy.
Oh yeah, I did think it was really bad idea for a card.
But that's just my opinion.
I probably should have specified that I considered it to be bad.

This thread has pretty much evolved over time from bad cards to funny cards to combo cards to cards I'd like to see but won't really work and everywhere inbetween

That's because if you're not entering an official contest, people will ask why you didn't post your fan cards here if you start a new thread.

Only funny to mafia players:

Robz888 - $6
Action - Duration

All other players reveal the top card of their deck.  If it an attack, trash it.  Otherwise, but it back.

At the start of your next turn, all other players reveal cards from their deck until they reveal an action.  Trash that attack.

I don't have a name for this one but:

Each other player reveals the top card of their deck. Gain a number of cards equal to the sum of the revealed cards costs (in coins) with total cost equal to the revealed cards costs products (if using potions, treat the potions as an imaginary unit)

Possession of bad luck
Action - $6P
The player to your left discard his hand. Take his deck and his discard pile, and reorder all cards as you want.

It would be nastily fun to create action collisions and bad money splits to your opponent. Too bad, it will take too much time.

Also, playing this every turn unblockably pins your opponent.
