edit: ok i got it,, both players should have at least 2 cards on deck
66% chance to draw 2 cards. Statistically better than Cup of Ace but requires a face down monster, and requires a turn to use since it's a trap. I generally prefer this over Cup of Ace, especially if your opponent doesn't know what kind of deck you're using.

This is false. People will mostly pick earth/dark because those are the most prevalent monsters in the game, and this skews the statistics.
Charmer decks since they use all elements. Will be harder for them to get it right
Somehow I think this can be useful in tea burn.

Oh yeah it will! But it will be kinda slowed down bc it's a trap and you need a monster on your field. Still good.

cup of ace is enough, you wont want more than 3 of them, and it's a normal spell so you can use it in the first turn (the more important turn) this trap can be used if you draw a monster and have to wait the next turn to make it useful, better for mill deck
