It is rarely used in ranked games. Even if some decks in Duel Links require having a good starting hand to set it's tempo, "Switcheroo" has the upper-hand which gives you an option to retain cards and reshuffle an unwanted card for a specific scenario. In general, using this skill is unreliable, but might work just fine.
Actually many games have a restart rule. It's called a Mulligan. If you don't like your hand you can shuffle it into your deck and re draw. Most games generally use the -1 card per Mulligan rule though that states you can Mulligan ( or restart as much as you like -1 card every time. So if you start with 5 first Mulligan gives you 4 cards 2nd Mulligan gives you 3 cards and so on.
I'll name two for you. In the Pokemon TCG, if you don't start with a basic pokemon in your hand, you show your hand to your opponent, shuffle, your hand back into your deck, and draw a new hand and in hearthstone you can pick and choose which cards to shuffle back into your deck and redraw.
This game is full of skills that give you a +1 card advantage (Dinosaur Kingdom, Master of Magicians and Middle Aged Mechs, for example) and easy to abuse skills (pre-nerf 3SD), yet you are complaining about a skill that only gives you a chance to retry your starting hand, without even the chance to go back to the old one if the new one is worse.
