Given all the Ante manipulation in Emperor's Gambit, would there be anything particularly broken about house ruling the second part of the original Three-Dragon Ante Thief's power from "Discard a card from your hand" to "Put a card from your hand into the ante"? We noticed in a game the other day that outright discarding a card from your hand was pretty rare and didn't necessarily fit in with the rest of the game: typically, when a power forces you to discard a card in hand or in a flight, you replace that card somehow.

I don't think it would be broken.

It would make the Thief card more powerful. It would provide another method of placing the Hatchling and other heavy-impact ante effects into the ante.

If your group is happy with that effect, go for it.
