I think your discard pile is already a card house, so you just take the money.

So is each card its own level? In that case it's strictly better than Philosopher's Stone.

It took me until just now to realize that "philosopher's Jenga" wasn't a reference to some obscure joke about arguing about what counts as a "card house", and was in fact a reference to Philosopher's Stone the Dominion card...  X-P

Mayor
Action-Attack
Cost: $5

+1 Action

Choose one.  Do it and each other player then does the one in parentheses:
+2 cards (+1 Card and discard a card)
Gain a Silver (Copper)
You may trash a card from your hand to gain one costing $1 more ($0 more)

(That was my first idea.  When I symmetrically applied the same reduction on both ends, it actually turned into an attack of sorts.  Still needs to cost $5 after all that, I think)


Vice Mayor
Action-Tourist Attraction
Cost: $2

+1 Action

Choose one.  Each player does it.  If you choose Option 1, +1 Card:
+1 Card
Gain a Silver
You may trash a card from your hand to gain one costing $1 more

This poses an interesting strategy question for the player to your left. Do they go for the song they like the most, or do they go for the song they think you are least likely to be able to play?

From the Weekly Design contest thread:
Design a card-shaped object that concerns Silvers. Gaining them, trashing them, getting powers from them, losing powers from them, getting points from them, losing points from them, eating them, whatever!

I had to go for the eating option, obviously.

Oxidation (Landmark)
This game, whenever you would trash a Copper or Silver card, eat it instead*. If you did, you become protected from the starve to death rule.

*All games of Dominion you play in the future will be played without any cards you ate.

But if multiple players are protected from the starve to death rule, how do you deal with stalemates?

Whoever is the first person to become protected from the starve to death rule wins wherever the starve to death rule would have applied.

Naah. If the starve-to-death rule no longer applies, the die-of-thirst rule comes into play.

I'm pretty sure that the "don't urinate on the cards" rule would come into effect long before either of the others would ever apply.

Also known as the "don't take notes" rule.

I feel like this has to have been done before, but:

Counterspell
Reaction - $5

When another player plays a card, you may reveal and discard this card from your hand. If you do, they get no effect rather than following the card's instructions.

It has and it's called Enchantress.

No effect rather than following the card's instructions? Isn't that just the normal effect from playing a card? Did you mean to say "rather" there?

I have seen serious suggestions for cards that react to "when an opponent plays a card"; at least one that would cancel the card.

The intention was that this completely negates the effect of the card (much like Enchantress negates the effects of the card, replacing it with +1 Card/+1 Action). It's different from Enchantress since you get to pick which card to negate, and has the mess of only affecting one other player in a 3+ player game.

I guess to make it not a completely awful idea, it needs to give the person who played it +1 Action, otherwise you could just use it on the first action played.

I was considering writing that. I'm not sure why I didn't. I'll use the fact that it was late as an excuse.
