Oops! I originally had it giving out Curses but then changed it to be more like Vampire. Fixed now, thanks.

Counts up costs.
Edit: Buffed the costs it can get so it doesn't completely fall off a cliff once you start greening.

Travelling Merchant | Action | $5
+1 Buy
+$1 per Merchant token you have in the Supply
-
Setup: Each player adds one Merchant token to each Action Supply pile. Remove other players's Merchant tokens when you gain a card from that pile.

Merchant tokens are colored, so that each player's is distinct. If Player A buys a Travelling Merchant, they remove Player B and Player C's Merchant tokens on that pile, but keep their own.

So, essentially this card says "+$1 per action card in the supply your opponents have not yet gained a copy of."

It starts off super strong, but because it costs 5, by the time you get one, you've probably lost a few $. It's still worth it though, easily providing $6-7 on first-play. This card encourages variety -- you have to get lots of different cards to hurt your opponent's Travelling Merchants. By the mid-game this is probably worth at most $3, but might even get as far as $0. Well, at least you get a + buy. Theme wise, the Merchants can only sell things people don't already have, that's the money decreasing thing.

I suggest changing it to say "combined cost in " so that it is easier to understand how it works with debt or potion cost cards, and so that cards with those costs interact with it better.

I think that this is overpowered. Sure, you can hit Provinces in the endgame but this seems to be on average stronger than +2 Cards +2 Coins which is decent for a $5. You can safely pick 3 cards during the entire opening and even, depending on your deck, deep into the middlegame.

Put a card from your hand onto your Tavern mat that you don't have any copies of there.
You may trash this for +1 Card and +1 Action per differently named card on your Tavern mat.

It seems this is a more natural fit for the Exile mat, rather than the Tavern.

I like the general idea.

Overall though it’s a terminal single card thinner with a one-shot explosive draw… so compare it to hermit/madman and this feels a little weak to me. I think you could have it be non terminal and allow you to exile any card, then trash for + card for differently named card in exile (not giving extra actions for simplicity)

Super weak, I don’t see how you can actually thin with a card that gets rid of one Estate and one Copper.
Even without that variety restriction the card would be quite weak.

Well, with 3 cards on the Tavern mat it is already stronger than Experiment. But it should probably return itself to the supply so that you can keep on getting new copies.

Due to Ways being introduced and Throne Room shenanigans, it's recommended to use "This turn" instead of "While this is in play".

Looks pretty weak compared to Bridge or even Woodcutter. Ruined Market is not brillant for Double Province greening and   a first play Herbalist with a positive effect for evrybody runs i to bootstrapping issues, i.e. nobody goes for it.

    Principles
    I like counting, but it needs some time.  Cards should not slow down games too much.  Good cards have some tricks to avoid multiple countings, like being terminal or having a Potion costs.  Let's see what you made.

    As segura suggests, it is overpowering in money deck.  5/10

    A silver with one-Copper trashing.  Not bad.  7/10

    It is similar to Porn of Plenty, but it gives you +2 Actions instead of Provinces. Very nice!  9/10

    Not bad.  How about counting only a card costing $2 or more, to avoid counting twice?
    8/10

    Very great!  It resembles Poacher, but we really have to be careful how many the pile has.  9/10

    Library with shifting.  I like "draw-to-X" clause.  Maybe it has to make sure "same number" means "same number of cards you first discarded."  8/10

    I like it, but compared to Artificer, it can gain greens (not only Provinces but also Duchies) too easily.  6/10

    Another Plunder card.  I like it, but does it have to gain only non-Victories?  It is already a terminal.  7/10

    Converting Liaisons to Horse gainers (delayed draw).  Not bad, but maybe it can give you +1 Action.  7/10

    I really like it.  Everyone wants Villages even if the Ally is a boring one.  It also has "once-per-turn" clause to avoid slowness.  Excellent!  10/10

    Another Lurker.  Not bad.  By the way, can I gain something when I return just one card?  8/10

    A strong Exorcist.  Silver-moating avoids Hex problems (it sometimes slows down games too much, as Donald suggests).  Very good!  9/10

    Another Shanty town.  Although some boards does not have $2-$3 Action cards (without this), but I like it.  8/10

    Weak.  Maybe gaining to your hand is better.  5/10

    Blackjack.  I like it, but as segura suggests, it is a little too strong.  7/10

    Another Village with +3 Actions!  Good.  8/10

    Although Big Money centralizes too often, I like it.  8/10

    Now it is a Village with trasher!  It seems nice, but it needs to Exile at least 3 cards to make up for one-shot
      Is it strong?  6/10
    As segura suggests, it is very weak.  You have to play at least twice to get $1 discount.  Maybe "$1 per card with different name" helps.  5/10

I had not though about it much, but I suppose you would need to return 2 cards to gain any.
