It’s only a problem if you’ve got something to hide. This week’s card is Eyes of the Chancellor:
This is probably the meanest of all the upgrades. As a Detector, it will continuously reveal any and all opposing Stealth or Invisible things, forcing your opponent to play more “honestly”. However, you are under no such restrictions, and can hide one secret from your opponent each turn. Additionally, knowing the contents of your opponent’s hand at all times is very powerful. You can perfectly play around whatever they might have, or if you had a choice between destroying one of their tech bulidings or heroes, now you know exactly which one to go for.
Spectral Tiger - Eyes of the Chancellor can make any illusion untargetable for a turn because it doesn’t , but Spectral Tiger really likes being Invisible because 5 atk is enough to break a tech building. You can even pull this off the turn you play Eyes of the Chancellor, because it has haste.
Nature Reclaims, Assimilate, Versatile Style - any of the standard Upgrade-destruction effects apply here. However, since you’ll know when these are in your opponent’s hand, you can time your Free Speech to protect Eyes of the Chancellor, or apply enough pressure with your other things to discourage them from spending the gold on their answer.
