WDC #179: Dominion reaction video!!! #4 will SHOCK you


Now I'm a certified Reactions enjoyer. I love the stuff. Recently, enormous advances in reactionology have lead to a resurgence of reactions ever since Menagerie, due to a new trick where you react to play the card. However, today we are going old-school.

Design a Reaction that does something other than play itself.

Some great examples from the game: Patron, Market Square, Sleigh, Trader, Tunnel, Watchtower


Contest Guidelines:
Your submission must be a Reaction card (any other types are also allowed)
The Reaction card must React to do something other than play itself (workarounds that just copy the effect above the line but don't actually play the card will be frowned upon)
You may use any other fan or base game mechanics
Split piles, rotating piles are allowed
Out-of-supply piles are allowed if you include the card(s) that gain them

Judgement Details:
Entries and revisions must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on Monday, February 27. I'll have results posted on Tuesday, February 28.
Entries will be judged on simplicity, synergy between top/bottom of the line, and Reactions based on new mechanics that haven't been Reacted upon by the base game.

Thank you for watching my Dominion Reaction videos, don't forget to like and subscribe, cya next time where ill be reacting to the unboxing of the new expansion, Dominion: Society

A janky Silver trasher that has a couple interesting interactions. Get two Golds off the same Remodeled 2-cost, turn that Gold a Bandit trashed straight into a Province... at the very least, two of these will always work as a Remodel, but usually you can do something better.

Shifting sands, $4
2VP
---
When another player shuffles, after drawing, you may reveal and exile this to look at the top 5 cards of their deck and put any number of them on the bottom.
Victory - Reaction

FAQ: you reveal this after they finish playing the card that made them draw (or reveal from the top of their deck, or whatever else made them shuffle), or after they finish clean up if they shuffled to draw their next hand. This will be after they trigger any effects on their shuffle, like putting a card on top with Order of Astrologers - but they will still draw the card they put on top.
Cards you leave on top can go back in any order.

It would probably be a good idea to limit the gaining to non-Victory cards so that you can't gain a whole ton of Provinces off of one trashed Gold/Thrift Store.

Personally I think the Victory gaining might be justified since it costs , but a non-Victory gainer would be cool too. If they do restrict the type gained, they can lower the price, no?

Edit: Thanks to segura for pointing out that it can go infinite; I have trouble seeing that kind of thing.
So now it has to trash a card from your hand in order to replay stuff. Even more thematic now, haha. With the new "cost" of use (it can be a positive in the early game, of course) and the fact that many Actions aren't as useful after the Buy phase, I took out the "other than during Clean-up" condition. So you can trigger the Reaction at the end of your turn almost like a Night phase card.

Attendant
$3 - Action - Reaction
+1 Coffers.
Choose one: +1 Action; +1 Buy; Trash a card from your hand; or Gain a Horse.
-
When you trash a Treasure, you may discard this for +1 Coffers and gain a Horse.

Originally, the reaction gave +1 Card and +1 Coffers, but then if you have one in your hand and the only other card in your deck was also an attendant I think it could go infinite.

+1 Action
Trash a card from your hand.

When one of your cards is trashed, you may discard this from your hand to gain a card you have exactly 1 copy of in play.

Unfortunately not the 4th entry, but here's hoping it's still a good one!

That could easily go infinite. You only need a sifter, so e.g. Forum plus the +1$ token from Adventures and you get infinite Coins.

A vanilla Reaction! Can be a Copper or a Loot! Can protect you against junkers! Lets you buy a Grand Market using Coppers! Is this a good idea? Who knows! (though Hovel does already come close)



Update: use exchange mechanics [previous]

Update #2: replace "precisely" with "exactly" [previous]

Update #3: revert to "would gain" mechanics, as this allows you to react with multiple Barters (and also to fully protect against Cursers by discarding). [previous]

Spymaster - $3
Night/Reaction

+1 Villager
Trash a card from your hand.
-
When another player spends a Token, you may discard this from your hand to take it. If you did, +1 card.

This may require some clarification, so here we go:
- the following tokens are considered to be spent: Villagers, Coffers and Favors. This cannot be used for e.g. Sinister Plot.
- a token spent may only be recovered once with this. So if P1 spends a Coffers and P2 recovers it, then P3 can still react afterwards, but it will not do anything. Same if P2 wants to react twice.
- you get the same type of token as the one that was spent.
- if multiple tokens are spent at once (as is common with Favors), each can be recovered by reacting once.

Note that the "would gain" phrasing is required to prevent repeated on-gain reactions.
Does a card that costs less than another card also cost precisely $0 more than it?

Also, I would suggest getting rid of "would gain" and using the exchange mechanic instead, the way official cards do. Since exchanging is not gaining, that would also prevent repeated reactions.

I would argue that no, a card that costs less than another card (in $ or potions or debt) does not cost precisely $0 more than it. Though obviously open to suggestions of how to phrase it more clearly without overly increasing the amount of text.

Good point re exchanging. I did originally write it like that, but for some reason convinced myself that it would result in on-gain reactions, not sure why. I'll fix it.

My Submission:



Quote
Wildebeest • $4 • Action - Reaction
+1 Action
Choose one: +2 Cards; or +1 Card per Wildebeest you have in play. Discard 2 cards.


When you discard this other than in Clean-up, you may reveal it to put it onto your deck.
                                                     

My submission is Wildebeest. They move in herds, so the  more you have the stronger they get. The first couple of plays are equivalent to Dungeon's this-turn effect, sifting 2 cards but netting you -1 Card. The 3rd play is a Forum (net cantrip), and subsequent plays increase your hand size by 1 more each time (however, you only dig out of the hole from your first 2 plays after your 5th Wildebeest, which has a net equivalent on your hand size of playing a single Lab).

The Reaction lets you topdeck a Wildebeest when you discard it. The most obvious use for this is to discard one Wildebeest with another while building a chain. Unlike Village Green or Trail, it doesn't effectively spare you a discard by playing itself. However, it does give you a bit more flexibility in what you sift as your stampede is developing (and if you somehow put 7 Wildebeests on top of your deck, you could still play all of them without having to hit the shuffle). It also works when you discard them in other contexts (there's potentially a synergy with Exile-from-the-Supply effects, where you could ensure you have multiple copies, at least once).

Do I get another $1 if I play Sponsor to reveal another to draw a Victory card?  I mean, is the card I draw while revealing revealed?

Very minor suggestion, but instead of using the new word "precisely," you could use the word "exactly," which is used in official cards like Remake and Upgrade.

Thanks for the question, no it's not revealed. All the revealed cards go to "revealed land", then you draw, then you get the +$.

While this started otherwise this mutated into a Market Square variant.

Quote

Gold Lust
$5 Action - Reaction
+3 Cards; You may discard an Action for +1 Action. You may discard an Treasure for +1 Buy.
-
When another player gains a Treasure, other than Copper, you may discard this from your hand to gain a Gold.

Travelling Fair, now coming in card format in a Theater near you.

(Yes you can React multiple times.)


EDIT: Made the Reaction trigger a little friendlier.

Cove
Victory - Reaction
$4

2VP
________________________________________________________________________________
When another player gains a Victory card, you may discard this to gain a cheaper non-Victory card



Note - Made a modification. Increased the number of victory point from 1 to 2 and increased the cost from 3 to 4. This is to increase the likelyhood that you would want to trigger the reaction in response to an opponent gaining a Cove.
