Agility has perennially been one of the hardest skills to leverage usefully in gameplay, this card is one of several new cards printed that fixes that issue somewhat.
Since the game first released we've had cards that turn a skill into another, Rite of Seeking for example turns your into and "I've got a plan!" turns into . The only initial options to do that with were Backstab and Sneak Attack, and both of those were for combat only! Well since then we've gotten Lockpicks and Cheap Shot, an upgraded Sneak Attack and not much else. I.E. four different ways to turn agility into and just one way to turn it into .
Oh wait, the skill check used to trigger your net benefit is an check?! So the plan is to: Use your High stat to encounter and evade an enemy, this shouldn't be an issue for a Rouge, and then you use your, probably average 3, stat to try and net two clues? Two actions for two clues AND you spend a card AND you're still hinging all of this on a stat that isn't even your major stat?
So, when on earth is this useful? It's bad to review a card in vacuum like this. Obviously there can be a large difference between location shroud value and enemy evade value, pulling 2 clues from a Shroud 5 spot for example is pretty good, assuming that the evade value is pretty low. More importantly perhaps is the fact that you ARE playing so perhaps you can double up on the clue mayhem with a Double or Nothing?
I tried this card a bit with proxies, I tried it on "Skids" O'Toole and on Finn Edwards, the latter gets his free evades so that makes this infinitely better for Finn Edwards but even so, seriously consider taking just a humble Flashlight rather then this card, or take both and have them supplement each other.
If you take 2 Flashlights, 2 Eavesdrops and 2 Perceptions then you've got yourself a decent Clue-specialized package for level 0, supplement this with out-of faction cards as is appropriate ("Skids" O'Toole can gather Evidence! and Finn Edwards can be very clue efficient with "Look what I found!" and/or any number of different cards). As you gain XP drop the Eavesdrops for Lockpicks and hoover clue's like a Faux , especiially if your Investigators name is Finn Edwards.
