<judging>
You judge a bit harshly, and I think have weird/possibly mistaken views on some of these. For instance:
- I think you're greatly underestimating Printing Press.
- Torch is hardly comparable to Rebuild when on its own, it's only a trasher. Rebuild is a complete strong strategy on its own. And I think you're overestimating the difference Torch will have in a game.
- The "in games using this" effect of Fine Art/Art Dealer is definitely more interesting than just "everyone has fair for free" when you have to have three copies of a Treasure in play. (I just now noticed that entry and I like the idea, especially Art Dealer.)
- There's no way Nomad Village has higher highs and lower lows than Herald. It doesn't look that swingy to me.
- You're kindof contradicting yourself about Impoverished Village. You say it won't proc* a lot, but then say you'll probably be gaining a Copper every turn. It isn't like there's very often more than one village on a board. (Unrelated: What is "proc" short for anyway?)

Also, you missed Farmer. (edit: and Snorka's card...)

“Proc” as an acronym stands for “programmed random occurrence,” it’s a gaming term used to describe effects that are designed in game to have some % chance of happening. But from my experience many people also seem to use it as shorthand for the word “activate.”
Thank you for your judging and the win, however I do feel that I should wait for the missing cards to be included before I post the next contest (I do have an idea for one though).

Did you hear about the skyscraper with one really tall floor? I could tell you but it’s a long story…

Missing cards, uh...

Farmer
https://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=21770.msg904047#msg904047
Big effect: 10/10. Reminds me of embargo.
Fun effect: 7/10. Embargo made for bad times, but at least the estate pile runs out faster.
Fun card: 4/10. Too strong. Seems stronger than Stables, and has a higher low and lower high than shepherd.

21/30.

Shady Shop
https://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=21770.msg903999#msg903999
Big effect: 9/10.
Fun effect: 3/10. Makes the opening worse. No thanks.
Fun card: 4/10. Too strong.

16/30.
Final placements are unaffected.

Does Farmer's 21/30 make it a runner up?

3rd runner up I guess. I prefer Landscaper by a hair.
