Tricky card to use but here's some tricks to execute the super tutor on demand.

Raw power it via an exploited main stat, for example:

Once you and your friends get the box halfway done, force the last bit right when you need it with:

And now you just sit back and dig out all your most overpowered stuff and play it free.

I don't know if this can be described as a good card. It's real meme-y with the 1/campaign trigger, huge cost in actions. But the payoff can mean a free tutored Agency Backup, Rite of Seeking, Ace in the Hole, Key of Ys or whatever other card might be critically important at that moment.

I don't get the part about Leo or Quick Thinking. The Coffer comes in play with just 1 lock, surely you can't remove two of them and benefit twice from the reaction... ? — Freeman · 3
It comes into play with one per investigator locks. Will to Survive would allow you to remove a lock without drawing a chaos token, and because it's until end of turn, Leo would let you perform this action twice. — cb42 · 21
Oh yeah, used to solo play, I missed the "per player" part, now it makes sense, thanks! — Freeman · 3
