Taking 1 damage is pretty harsh, but honestly I've seen other weaknesses that don't even have the upside of dealing 0 damage under certain conditions.
Seriously there are two approaches to this card A: play a big hand deck, well just throw in a body Armour, if you don't have enough cards in hand to have drawn body armor you have less need for it.
OR my personal choice
B: play Harvey as a hyper committing engine, you draw fast, play and commit fast and end up treating this card as occasionally blank which is hilarious, even if you float at five cards for higher education you only take 1 damage from this "instant death" card. I've played Harvey this way and only had a single magnifying glass in play and just picked up every clue in play without ever stopping to to refresh, not having to ever take a draw or resource action and only having about 3 play actions in your whole deck leads to some crazy speed. (once you lose the move actions you begin to laugh like a bond villain)
