People think that this card is a trap, but I am considering it to use with Akachi (5 charges for 0 resources and one action). Even if you don't have the actions to milk it, it can be converted to resources with spirit speaker or used to pay angered spirits.
Uses (4 charges).
Exhaust Alchemical Transmutation, spend 1 charge: Test (0). For each point you succeed by, gain 1 resource (to a maximum of 4). If a , , , , or symbol is revealed during this test, take 1 damage.
This card is considerably better when you're using it in a Sign Magick deck. You don't need to waste actions activating this anymore, just use it in conjunction with a spell you're already using! The same can be said for other under-used spells such as Clarity of Mind etc. That's more of a note about Sign Magick, but it's still worth mentioning!
