Reveal your hand; discard the Coppers.
Royal Blacksmith is an Action card from Empires. It is a terminal draw card and can be a sifter, and is a Debt card. It forces you to discard all Coppers in your hand after drawing; it would thus behoove the player to either get rid of their Coppers before acquiring one, or find some way to get Coppers back out of their discard pile afterwards.

This card was originally called Old Blacksmith, but upon seeing the art submitted for it, Donald X decided the blacksmith depicted did not look "Old", and changed the name. Because of this, Royal Blacksmith comes before Overlord in the rulebook, and on the box's inlay.

 Secret Historycards was +5 Cards, you may put your deck into your discard pile. It cost at first, but varied. For a while it seemed like one of the more reasonable Debt cards. It wasn't good immediately, when your deck had mostly Coppers. Or was it? Gradually I got disenchanted with the deck-flipping; it was there to make you less sad to draw at the bottom of your deck, but sometimes meant you got it in every hand when you weren't actually drawing your whole deck. You zoomed to victory or didn't, depending on where it was in your deck. Then I got focused on wanting the big cards to really not be good right away. I replaced the flipping with "discard the Coppers" and well there it is.
