+1 Card. +1 Action. Reveal cards from your deck until you reveal a Treasure. Discard the rest. Trash the Treasure; gain a Treasure costing up to $3 more than it, putting it on top of your deck. Each other player may gain a Copper, putting it into his hand.

So, it looks like my card was (generally) well received.  As many of you so rightly pointed out, it is Rebuild for treasures (or kind of cantrip Mine).  But that is so much weaker than Rebuild, it got a +1 Card.  I then added putting it on top of your deck so you see the new treasure sooner, and put in the optional copper gain because it A) fits thematically and B) it is a drawback that I think is very very interesting.  I was debating between $5 and $6, but ultimately went with $6 because this outclasses (IMO) Mine by quite a bit.  Some people thought that this could cost $4 or $5, while some thought this was too strong even at $6.

Any suggestions on improving it?

Possibly make the Copper gain non-optional?  I think the cantrip Mine that puts on top of the deck is fair to cost the same as conventional Mine.  Then, the Copper gain would be a mild attack that might justify going from $5 to $6.  I'm not sure though.  Your idea got more votes than mine (small m).

The wikipedia article on Indulgence is very interesting:

While I'm fine with this discussion here, it probably belongs in RSP...

How did this get a +1?!?!?

Well, I originally said this and reported to the mods, but they seem to have left it. So, it is what it is.

Sorry, I haven't logged in for a while. Guess I better figure out how to split the topic off into RSP.

EDIT: Honestly, I don't know where to split it. I really don't want to remove SirPeebles's secret history from this thread. SirPeebles, would you be willing to amend your history to remove your description of indulgences?

On topic…

SirPeebles, how do you feel about changing the card's name to Donation as Robz suggested? It's not that the name could be controversial. I just think "dontation" is a word that more people are familiar with and that feels much more Dominion-y.

I'm fine with changing the name.  How about Charity (C)   ;)

OK, if you'd prefer Charity, I'm fine with that. We'll find some art and mock up the card.

No no, Charity (C) was a joke.  Donation is OK for now.  Maybe we could find a better name later.

How about "Tithe" ?  It sounds fancier than Donation.  Or is it still too controversial?

Tithing isn't confined to one religion, or even religion at all. But more importantly to me, it's a word and concept that I think most people are familiar with. Seems good to me.
