I can't figure this card out.  Is it as terrible as it seems?  I mean, half of the pay-off is just spent replacing Hamu itself.  My guess is the game designers remember Ancestral Recall from the old Magic: the Gathering days, so they didn't want to make the same mistake.  But has anyone found a use for this card?  If so, I'd be really curious to hear about it.

I can only see using it in a deck that has some Prophecy-leveraging cards like Apocalyptic Visions (so that you didn't use a draw to get the Prophecy), Atlantis (so you get yet another draw), or Eschatologist (to give the card an alternate use of cancelling a triggered effect).


Prophecies are pretty weak, on the whole.

It replaces itself and gives you another card (upon the proper condition being met--an easy one if you're playing Agency). Effectively your deck is one card smaller and you draw a card, so you're more likely to see something else you're looking for.


But yeah, it is better still to find other uses for it. The Greatest Fear... for example.
