Alright, I blink. Can someone give an example or two of how this works.

Ok, I put two copies of 0XP Archaic Glyphs in my deck at the start of the campaign. At some point I fulfill the criteria to: Record in your Campaign Log that “you have translated the glyphs.”



There are currently two kind of upgraded Archaic Glyphs (Guiding Stones and Prophecy Foretold), both costing 3XP. Being a devout gambler I decide to trust my deck's future to the luck gods and when I find myself with 3xp to spare decide to upgrade both cards (instead of just one). This costs just 3xp, instead of the usual 6xp. But, instead of choosing which ones I want, I shuffle all the upgraded Glyphs into a pile (there are 2x2=4 cards in this instance) and draw two at random. Those two go in my deck, and thus I am stuck with the almost inevitably sub par results.


So, that's all easy enough. You can do the same for the Strange Solution, and  there are 2x3=6 cards to draw from there.


This all assumes you have an entire play set to yourself, a reasonable but not guaranteed state. But I reckon that if someone else has already taken one then you should just draw randomly from what is left.
