Considering how often search-type effects occur in this game, this effectively blocks stuff from getting popped via common removal (well, most target first anyway), which will probably be useful for a while. At the same time, it does lock off certain Decks for a while, at least stuff that relies on destroying things to function (i.e. certain Pendulum decks). It goes two-ways, so if you search and get your Deck shuffled, yeah, no going after the opponent until later.
So yeah, let's see what will set this off:
- Any form of searching effect / returning stuff to the Deck.
- Foolish Burial-esque stuff
- Card Shuffle (if anyone still runs this even in casual matches)
(First two will definitely occur at some point in matches, so this will generally trigger often)
