Would you target yourself with this, or your opponent.  I can see reasons either way.  Discard 2 cards that have utility in the discard pile and card draw is strong.  The other side of that is to make your opponent pitch 2 cards they may need and having them have to draw 2 cards which would add to a pseduo-mill effect.  With no max hand size, iirc, they won't be discarding them, but it's less cards in their deck.

Just like you said as it's the case with multiple Yithian cards - you can make use of it in both ways. Different situations call for different uses. The flexibility is pretty nice sometimes.
