The first of the Books make their appearance. Here is how this one evolved:

1.
Pre:testing. Whoops! Smithy which is less powerful than this costs four. Lets fix this now before we play.

2.
After a few plays: "I have no curses." "I have no curses." Maybe this is still too powerful.

3.
Final card: After a few tests, it seems to be balanced. It's a powerful card whose overuse will bog down your deck in curses. It's still kick ass combined with Gardens though.

(It is suggested that when playing with this expansion, 12 cards be added to the curse deck instead of 10 in a 2-player game).

I dunno about the actual mechanics of the card, but the condition should be, "Reveal your hand, if you have no curses in hand, gain a curse." This way the card doesn't become dead by giving you so many curses you don't want to use it until the curse stack is gone, also mitigates the possibility of it become a super powerful engine with trading posts or masquerades or other cards.
Just my two cents.
