Expensive. I think this card is waiting for an investigator who can take it who has a bomb elder sign.

As is, I can't really think of many reasons to take it, outside of multiplayer. 5 for a (probably) auto-success is okay?

Very team comp dependent. Some investigators love it, some of your buddies will love it. I think it is waiting for its moment to shine.

I'd say Akachi qualifies as an investigator who has a bomb Elder Sign. This is pretty terrific for her. (Though she probably wants to grab some upgraded spells first.) — CaiusDrewart 857
I think this card is great. 5xp is a lot, but I place a lot of value on knowing that a test will succeed, and the added bonus of an elder sign effect is icing etc. — SGPrometheus 95

Combos with someone who is running Deciphered Reality or the Seeking Stones, big-time (throw in a Double Or Nothing while you're at it) — Low_Chance 4
Just noticed this is a spell; Arcane Initiate can fetch it. Awesome. — SGPrometheus 95

Only take for a deck that has a superb effect.

Akachi Onyele and Father Mateo have super powerful effects so they are obvious benefactors. Father Mateo especially likes this since he has a choice of benefits in addition to an "Automatic success" result.

An incredible trump card to play against a key opponent, a game-stopping treachery like Locked Door or to gain tempo during crunch-time. This card is as varied as the important tests that may come up. In single player try to hold onto this for those tests that you just aren't geared for (Aforementioned Locked Door is a good example of something that just screws over a . In multiplayer the card also gains a new niche as a way to net easy, no-risk kills on enemies engaged with your friends.

Don't forget that you can boost a buddy, characters like "Skids" O'Toole, Finn Edwards, Silas Marsh or Zoey Samaras all get massive benefits, some of which really kick off with foreknowledge (Like Zoey's damage buff, which is incredibly powerful when you can plan and account for it, all of a sudden she can one-shot a major threat.).

Even for weak elder sign effects this is good to have for important tests, like Rotting remains making you insane with autofail. — Django 1373
You are correct in theory, but in this scenario you would be far far better served by a card that pullĀ“s it's weight all the time, Shrivelling 5, Arcane initiate 3, Ward of protectiong 5. This card only really shines when you seriously want the elder sign trigger. — Tsuruki23 195
