Revealing a card(s) doesn't seem like much of a cost. Maybe it'd be a little more like one if you "permanently revealed an unrevealed card", so that you cannot keep revealing the same single card over and over and shuffling it back into the rest of the hand.
Doesn't seem to specify Shadow Summon is a kind of Special Summon, and this sort of "unlock" nature to them makes me wonder if you have to Summon them from off the field or if they perhaps work a little like Geminis in how you can have an already Normal Summoned Shadow Monster become a Shadow Summoned monster.
The Link Rating is not really needed to be stated. They don't particularly use it, and Links will naturally be able to use them so long as they are monsters, unless they get specific effects capable of countering that, but a "cannot be used for Links" would be arbitrary" (on top of that you don't mind them being used for Links anyways).
I also wonder if there might be cards that require specific reveal materials and not just the number of cards to be generically revealed. If so, it'd be helpful to see how that would be written. Then again, the examples don't seem to have any form of material listing to them so maybe it isn't meant to. I'd like to suggest it though, as it'd help give the method more depth and variety. Otherwise you might run out of the main gimmick rather fast.
I mean, the hypothetical top is revealing 3 cards of any kind in hand for any 7+ star monster. It isn't super hard to do. So long as your hand is X sized or more you can do it, and modern Yugioh will always give you enough pluses to achieve this.
Updated them to deal with the problems and suggestions stated. You were right about them not being treated as a Special Summon, I just forgot to write that bit. As for the Permanently revealed bit, I don't like that, but I decided to give them a requirement like most Extra Deck monsters have so that way it should be a little harder to use. Thank you for the feedback. Anyone else who would like to review with the new changes is welcome to.
