I recently got this pack and started playing with its cards, and man do I love this side quest! Being able to know perfectly what the encounter deck is going to do to you for a while is invaluable.

Yea, even if you aren't doing the other victory display manipulation stuff, this card is really fantastic.  I think it is my favorite of the side quests.
