The maximum hand size should affect all card draws. This comes up quite rarely, but it should apply to everything.
Oh awesome, thanks for clearing that up (and thanks for such a quick response btw!).
To followup tho just to check, if for some reason you end up with a hand with more cards then your max hand size (e.g. Merchant has a 7 hand size and you switch roles) do you get to keep them but can never draw more til its below your new max? Does that effect cards you get from things like "Coercion" were you get a card from another player?
