Metaurchin
Cost: 2
Action-Attack/Meta-attack

+1 card
+1 action
Each other player discards down to 5 cards in hand. If you play an Attack or Meta-attack card while this card is in play, you may trash this card. If you do, gain an Urchin.

Remark: Urchin is now called Metamercenary, and Metaurchin is now Metametamercenary. Hermit is now Metamadman.
Needs to say "from the Urchin pile", or it does nothing.

The only time I see wording like that is when there are special 0* cards which are not in the supply. Pedantic nitpicks don't really belong in the Really Bad Card Ideas thread anyway.

If the Urchins are supposed to be in the supply, then there needs to be a setup rule saying add Urchin as a kingdom pile. Either way, the card does nothing in the current phrasing.

(You may explain your joke. If you do, each other player gains a sense of humour, from the sense of humour pile.) Besides, this is f.DS, pedantic nitpicking is welcome and encouraged everywhere here.

I'm confused; there are no more Urchins with that card, only Metamercenaries.

Well it's a $4 plus a $2 so it must obviously be worth $6.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

The thing is, it could actually be pretty decent.  It has a lot of actual self-synergy (where the two separate cards fail because they never collide).  Moreover, it means that you get the Crossroads draw non-terminally with every play of the card, which is very helpful.  How much do you expect to draw from Crossroads on average?  How much would you expect to draw from it after playing Scout?  I mean, if you have a bit of green in you deck, you could expect maybe 2 Victory cards in hand.  If that's the case, this is a Lab.  It's non-terminal draw that filters VP cards from the top of your deck and even gives extra actions the first time you play it.  That's really good.

It'd be pretty deflating to play with no green in the top 4 or in hand.  A 6-cost Ruined Village.

Yeah, I agree, but I've found that including snappy one-liners PLUS extra text decreases your chance of getting respect, and respect mining is what F.DS is all about, right?
