Now this is unusual. CB1 for +0 wash in advantage? Well, there's supposed to be a reason for it in this card. AFter attacking the Vanguard with this, you CB1 to shuffle up to 3 cards in your hand back to the deck, then draw that many cards.
So essentially, it's here to turn any spare cards you don't want and then convert them into new hand advantage. Guard quality specifically, you're trying to lose low-shield units for ones that have higher shield, increasing the quality of the advantage rather than the amount of it.
Sounds neat, if it wasn't for the fact that drawing is still random. Also, shuffling triggers away just to put them back in the deck is a fucking terrible idea: 30k shield lost in the hopes of drawing something remotely useful? You'd be better off just using Susanoo and Takemikazuchi to try and get those units a little later while keeping your shield open, considering the rate you're spamming card-adding.
I'd rather open with Kirin. I'm not that desperate to shuffle my deck.

...Screw that name!  Your new name is Kuzuryushin!
So what Kuzuryushin do?  And, yes, look the name up, it's an actual name of a Japanese Dragon God.
...In fact, that's what this whole thing was based on, huh, I guess I should look at the trivia first.
Kuzuryushin here lets you CB1 at the end of the attack step to put three cards back into the deck, shuffle and then draw three.
...I'm not sure how I feel about that, honestly.  I'd rather draw three and then shuffle three back in rather than the other way around.
On one hand, Oracles have enough draw power and good strides that they don't need this, on the other hand, it is a nice way to cycle heal triggers or other cards you'd rather have in the deck back into the deck for later.  Only downside is that it screws up the stack if you're using Tsukiyomi.
I'm not sure I could recommend this to Oracle players, but if you don't have Tsukiyomi, I guess it's decent for what it does.
Seriously, would it have killed them to name it Kuzuryushin?
