Wesley's STCCG card of the day #97

Hi, folks,

a major theme in most games is affecting card play and one of the few STCCG cards that does this is


Event, uncommon.
Plays on any player. That player must shuffle entire hand, placa on bottom of draw deck, then draw the same number of cards from the top. Discard event after use.
"Masaka attempted to transform the U.S.S. Enterprise into an ancient temple and grounds by rearranging its matter."
Two uses here:

1) Try to improve a lousy hand of yourself. Ho-hum, who is playing such a bad deck anyway ? Useful however, if you can't seem to draw your only Red Alert in a tournament situation.

2) Spoil a GREAT hand of your opponent.
This one is OK, but you need to know a time your opponent is holding good cards. Of course, a grin might sometimes hint at a good draw.

The major use, however, is to nullify a Betazoid Gift Box. (Yeah, and that's the only way to do so.) A deck like mine that relies on a fast first mission and then on BGB'ing the urgently needed cards for solving the second can be crippled by the use of this card. Note that you always get a chance to use it, as I won't be able to play more cards (except Interrupts) in a turn I used the Gift Box and your turn is next. (Horga'hn does of course upset this, but with both artifacts already found you're lost anyway...)

OH, BTW (by Lore): A few more ways to tell your opponent has a good hand:
