Discussion about the Creator skill

The skill adds a random powerful card to your hand, and you do not have to have that card even in your deck and even in your card catalog. I assume that the cards you can use by the effect of the skill are cards that are currently unobtainable in general gameplay. Here is a list of cards that are added to player's hand.
