Set: TWC
Number: 106
Illustrator: Johann Bodin


When my opponent plays Painful Reflection
(The Rituals of Order F106) and chooses me,
do I discard at random or do I get to choose the
You get to choose which cards you

A rather high cost event, and you need to do some work to set it up by driving things insane, but still useful for hand control.  Unlike Apeirophobia, it can still be used in your opponents draw phase which makes it very powerful if you can save the domain for it....

Could be really nice in a Lunatics deck, where you have more control over the number of insane characters.

I think too costly for what it does. There are cheaper hand discard options that do the job better. One nice thing about it is that you can use it on an opponent's turn, and it is a madness card so has some synergy with the new upcoming hastur box.

Yeah, the best use would be to use it right after your opponent has drawn cards to ideally discard them all. It will likely require a dedicated deck und a way to recur it, though.
