This card will be insane with the Harvey, I'm not sure how big his hand size finally be but the potential is there for this card to finally shine. Specially if there are more cards that trigger upon being drawn.
Shuffle any number of non-weakness cards from your hand into your deck. Draw cards until you reach your maximum hand-size. Remove Glimpse the Unthinkable from the game.
Edit: Weirdmarine asked in another review how many cards Harvey Walters could draw. The answer is too big of a comment, so i updated my review.
First assume the following cards are in play
- Dream-Enhancing Serum
- 2x Laboratory Assistant (add Charisma for a second ally slot)
- 2x Arcane Enlightenment (add Sign Magick with Versatile for a third arcane slot)
- 2x Vault of Knowledge.
This brings him to a max handsize of 18 and only the first copy counts against your handsize. With those 7 cards in play your deck will be smaller. So you're likely drawing more cards than your deck and discard have so you'll take horror each time you shuffle your empty deck and go insane.
Even outside Harvey (without Vault of Knowledge) you end up with a max hand size of 14. So you still draw lots of cards that could make you go insane as well.
Updated review of this card
Seekers have a lot of card draw, but redoing your hand is very powerful, especially when your cards don't help or you ran out. on some encounter cards can result in that.
- Playing this with any version of Ancient Stone in can deal homungus amounts of damage or heal horror (but it provokes an OA).
- Increase your hand size to draw more cards
I want to like this card, but I just can't bring myself to do it.
I think this card would be really good in just about any other faction, but seekers have so much access to both filtered and unfiltered card draw that I can never justify spending XP on this.
I know that theoretically this could give you up to 8 cards(10 with the Laboratory Assistant), but I can't say I commonly find myself in that situation and the various draw 3 cards(Preposterous Sketches, Cryptic Research) will probably end up being nearly as efficient.
The only caveat I can come up with is drawing Amnesia as a basic weakness or possibly Minh as she tends to be committing lots of cards, then I might more seriously consider this.
If we get more research cards that trigger during a search and can be placed back into your deck, like Mandy's Occult Evidence, this may be a card that finds a home in her deck, though the risk of just drawing them back into your hand may not be worth it.
If we get another seeker that eats through cards like crazy, this may find a home, but only the future will tell on that.
As a final note, I wish you set aside any number of non-weakness cards from your hand, drew up to your hand size, then shuffled the set aside cards into your deck. Then this card would get some serious consideration from me.
