PeddlerPeddler.jpg variant, or cantrip money, is a catch-all term for cantrips that give +$. They fit very easily into almost any engine, since, as long as they are not drawn dead by a terminal draw card with no actions remaining, they can always be played to increase buying power without obstructing your access to other engine cards.

The simplest possible Peddler variant—a card that simply gives +1 Card, +1 Action, +$1—does not exist; all Peddler variants carry at least one other bonus, penalty, or quirk aside from the cantrip-money effect. Donald X. Vaccarino has commented that leaving this niche unfilled gives him more flexibility in designing variants. Consensus among analysts is that such a card, if it existed, would be balanced at a cost of $4.

  • Prosperity: VentureVenture.jpg—is a Treasure, which is like being a non-terminal Action, and digs for a Treasure and plays it immediately, which is similar to drawing a card
  • Dark Ages: IronmongerIronmonger.jpg—is a cantrip that gives +$1 if the top of your deck is a Treasure card
