I like the idea, but I'd suggest making it a cantrip instead of +2 Cards. That makes its effect more similar to the original version, but still a significant buff.

:)So i was reviewing Glinko Dominion Card Rankings and contemplating improvements to the bottom 16%, if i don't find anything in old posts here. Below are a few ideas i had. Let me know what you think, especially those with multiple version. I pursued three paths for improvement: 1. remodel; 2. make into a split pile by developing a companion card; 3. Reduce its cost. I mostly want to maintain the original intent or at least not invade space another better card already occupies.

Cartographer Ranked 411/451
I modified this into a Peddler variant.
Crystal Ball Ranked 366/451
So this one really surprised me. To me it seams like the Treasure version of Sentry. So i modified to make the first one provide additional value and allowed you to put a card into your Hand, helpful for Night cards.
Duplicate Ranked 362/451
I modified this to allow more duplication.
Feodum Ranked 441/451
I modified both versions to a Treasure-Victory.
Version-A: I modified this gain Silvers.
Version-B: I modified this provide basic economy with the potential to gain Silvers. Maybe this should also cost $4?
Version A                                        Version B :)
Island Ranked 369/451
Since two cards are removed from your hand, i modified this by providing an additional card.
Monument Ranked 407/451
Like Woodcutter, as an Action this is too week. I modified this to a Treasure, provided a choice, and added an exchange. This exchange idea is not too dissimilar to Capital City.
Pendant Ranked 383/451
Version-A: I modified this to trash a Treasure for the benefit of a Coffer.
Version-B: I modified this to provide an alternative path to Loots.
Version A                                        Version B :)
Sage Ranked 400/451
I modified this to allow conditional trashing.
Scavenger Ranked 426/451
This an Harbinger both allow a card to be moved from the discard onto your deck. For both I modified this to two cards.
Version-A: I modified this include a Buy.
Version-B: I modified this to a choice, making the other option trashing and provide some benefit to certain trashing.
Version A                                        Version B :)

None of these cards except for Cartographer is weak. Cartographer with an added Peddler is likely too strong, Crystal Ball needs no buff, Duplicate needs no buff, the second Feodum variant is totally crazy, Monument being stronger than Plunder is totally crazy (not to mention the issue that a non-terminal that can be played as nothing but +2VP does not work; cards that provide VPs should lead to game progress and not to loops).

Except for obvious power level misevaluations (dude, Monument ainít weak!), making cards more wordy and complex is seldom a good idea.
Take Pendant, a powerful Treasure with a simple and clear wording. Why mess this up via adding Treasure trashing or Loot exchange to it?

Anyone have some good ideas for these?

I got another idea for Silver Mine

Idea 4

--- Quote ---Silver Mine (Treasure, $5)
Gain a card costing less than this to your hand.

With this, it can also serve as an expansive nonterminal Workshop if there are no interesting Treasures to gain. And of course, it gets quite nuts with stuff like Villa.
