just now i duel LD zane truesdale and i got this card. i read the effect similar with tellarknight send random card opponent to GY. this card have good effect
Looks like a guy who says: no-no-no-no like Nope penguin
Effect is supposed to be random, yet every single time Zane AI use this card against me, it always successfully hits the card in my hand that I need the most.

Not to mention always using it right when I'm clearly planning to use said card on the next turn, as if the AI saw my hand.

Feels like it's set to be rigged whenever Zane AI uses it, to be honest

The gate AI isn't random. I have the same problem with Pegasus and his Lightforce Sword card.

"he always hits my best card" is clearly random, not targeted. What your best card is in any given scenario is variable, there's no way the AI would even know which card is most valuable to you. The only reason you feel that way is because you're more likely to notice a relevant card being hit than something you don't care about.

How is that 'the only reason' maybe he's a bit right and so are you but it's not hard to target something by rarity or atk vs the rest of someone's deck for an ai

Doing it by rarity or ATK doesn't really increase the odds it hits a relevant card. (And, actually, the AI does in fact usually go by ATK when actually choosing a card.) My point wasn't that making them consistently pick something was hard. My point was that the best card in a given hand is way too complex a decision, and way too subjective, to actually target one.
Could work well with a warm worm mill deck
