Obviously, this card is no good if your opponent has a lesson in hand, which is a frequent occurrence late in the game. There are numerous cards in the game that allow you to look at the hand of your opponent, to make sure that you get the result you want. Of course, if you want complete flexibility of play at no risk, and you are willing to sacrifice one drawn card, then playing with Penalty Shot is the superior alternative. Although I can see this card fitting in decently into discard decks, there are normally better card drawing choices out there.

Rating: 2.5


Drawing 4 cards is 4 virtual damage to yourself. And there's basically a 50% chance your opponent will discard a lesson from their hand. So then you need to choose your damage, even harder. So then you only have one new card, probably not even one you need. Unless you want them to discard the lesson, but I don't see why you would. I don't like this card but that's just my opinion.

Rating: 1.9


You can look at this optimistically and say at least you'll get one card out of it no matter what they choose. Or you can look at it realistically and realize that you get 4 cards gone from your deck, and there's a good chance that your opponent would discard a Lesson to enjoy making your suffer for your own mistakes. The only way you can play this in a fail-safe mode is if you have a chance to look at their hand and discard something to make sure they have no lessons to counter you. Just face it. There are much better card drawing cards out there than this.
