Timing when you activate the card is important. If not many cards are in your graveyard, you may get a card which you want from the graveyard.

Any idea which duelists drops this card?

It's random by winning a duel against any of the standard duelists.
Just a Guy
Konami should change it so that when your opponent is choosing a card (from Painful Return's effect), your OPPONENT loses when the timer runs out. When I first started playing pvp in Duel Links, I lost more than a few duels because my opponent simply waited for the timer to run out.
Underrated card,

I like it with my discard deck. This plus regretful rebirth on warm worm....ridiculous
This card any good? Just got one now! I love automomous action unit though!

costless but takes time. great in beatdown deck when all your monsters are equally good.
