Uses (3 charges).

Exhaust Scrying and spend 1 charge: Look at the top 3 cards of any investigator's deck, or the encounter deck. Return them to the top of that deck, in any order. If a Terror or Omen card is among the looked-at cards, take 1 horror.

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.

I would see this as probably a good upgrade of Forbidden Knowledge for Agnes, especially if you are running uncage the soul — 2-XL · 1
I reviewed the core set versionof Scrying back in the good old days. Back toen I thought it was a rally good card. Thing changed afterwards when I noticed scenario's being a true race against the agenda deck. Giving up actions to trigger Scrying hurts when racing the agenda deck. This upgraded version makes me rally like Scrying again. — Heyenzzz · 2293
This version of Scrying synergizers beautifully with Norman Wither's signature asset: Split the Angle. StA makes you use an action to reveal the top encounter card, and then lets you discard for a fast action. With scrying, you can now reveal and discard, both for fast actions. Scrying also works well with Stargazing in solo mode. Makes it likelier that you'll find the all-important "Starts are Right" before the deck shuffles or the scenario ends. — Mordenlordgrandison · 78
