Resources for Discard
Here are some cards you can discard as cost for the effect of Snipe Hunter.
When discarded, The Fabled Ganashia revives himself with an additional 200 attack.
Sinister Serpent can be retrieved from the graveyard during each of your standby phases, but keep in mind if he is sent to the graveyard the turn he was retrieved he will be banished during your opponent's end phase.
Discard Gusto Griffin to special summon another Gusto monster from your deck. A good target for this is Caam, Serenity of Gusto because she is able to recycle Gusto Griffin back into the deck for Reuse and also draw a card to replenish your hand.
Volcanic Shell, while in the graveyard, can search another copy of himself from the deck. This allows you to effectively replenish your hand and lets you activate the effect of Snipe hunter up to 3 times for the cost of 1 card in your hand while also thinning your deck.
You can discard Thunder Dragon to the Graveyard, draw 2 more Thunder Dragons to your Hand, and use as cost for Sniper Hunter.
I really don't understand why Konami hasn't yet limited (to 1 copy) or banned this card. Common, 4 out of 6 chances (66%) of being able to destroy any card on the field (monster, magic, trap) by simply discarding one card per failed attempt. This card is so OVER POWER and destructive that it will litterely change the game...
God I hate this card. It's all luck of the roll. Watched my opponent pull it out on their first turn and wipe out all 4 cards I'd laid out. The odds should be 50-50, not 2/3 in the card's favor. Or at least just once per turn.
Haha, consider that kids think this card is rigged and only work 1/3 of the time, it really is about luck and you could have also been lucky enough to make your opponent lose their whole hand and only lose 1 or 2 cards. I agree that any effect that activates more than once per turn is broken though.
Never trust computer generated rng, I believe that they have increased the odds for 1&6. Just like the dice monopoly event, you will always throw a 1 in normal room and always get 3 in a treasure room.

For all who praise this card
Look for a post on Reddit, someone made the statistics of 500 games and got 1 and 6 in 55% of games instead of 33%.
Good luck to survive until the next turn after this shit
This is the worst card in the pack. Now this is something that actually deserves a 3 or a 4 out of 10, since basically it destroys your own cards while forcing you to discard with it's mandatory effect. Poor souls the ones that get this crap.
