Read the card closely. I think most people miss that this card no longer requires an action.
Yes, it has the potential to hit you for a horror now, but you gain the ability to now reliably use the card and not tax out your actions.
For almost ALL mystics, that makes this card far more playable, especially for Akachi and Norman Withers.
Check this card out if you are one of those two investigators, and maybe even some Agnes builds. Sometimes that horror trigger and the knowledge of what is coming can be all you need to pull out a win.
