Way too random and swingy for my liking. The best part of Scythe to me is just how strategic it is, these fly in the face of that. Fun to use every once in a while but you gotta go into it knowing that they change the whole tone of the game.
The original encounters often didn't feel too exciting, but this deck has a wide variety of events that are interesting.
They change Encounters from being fairly predictable into a slightly more random benefit. Sometimes you can get one of these cards that is not very useful for your current situation and plans, and sometimes it is a very handy boost: far more so than the base cards.
