This card was available from any Booster Pack Vol.1, making it very common, although it was not included in the original Starter Box. It was later re-released, with minor artwork and text changes, as CS2-375/R001 in the To the Promised Land expansion.
This Mastermind card holds an ongoing, passive ability. Once per game, if the player were to have exhausted their deck, normally a game-ending situation, the empty deck and discard pile of the player will be switched, effectively doubling their deck size to 100 cards.
This ability can help the viability of deck types that focus on rapid discarding or searching for particular cards to play.

These cards can be purchased for 9920 potch at the Cave of the Wind.
