I like the decker idea!

However, hosing someone's trash pile seems a little too strong.
With the ability to discard at will, and draw a new hand every turn, many
players recycle their decks at least once each game.
If you remove that possibility, you can wind up making the card too weak.

After all, what happens when all this players cards are removed from the
He has to sit there and wait for his opponent to win?
Or are we gonna add a new victory condition, ala M:tG, where running your
opponent out of cards wins the game as well?

Sounds too confusing to me.
IMO - just up the cost some more, and add some smaller penalties, ala. Mr.
Anything else risks getting too involved to make using the card worthwhile.
