Hidden trackable information in games sucks!

A nice way to honour the wonder of a newborn son!

Game-mechanically, it allows for that which many players would often wish to do in a game of 7 Wonders - but only as a big and very expensive exception. Which I generally like!

But the effect of the card is *a little* too luck based for my taste: At least in solo (=non-team) play you can't really know in advance if you'll get a hand which is worth having used a recruiting phase and spent 5 coins to use this hand twice - this would have to give you an advantage worth at least 8 coins to break even. So recruiting him is a gamble. (However, this can be said of quite a few other leaders as well.)
In the team play variant he is less luck based, but could be too strong overall. He also gets stronger the fewer players there are (because you can deny good cards to a larger percentage of opponents).
Overall, in my opinion he seems too weak in solo games with many players, too strong in team games, considerably too strong in team games with only 4 players and maybe about average strength (but still risky) for a leader in 3 player games.
He is extremly strong for Abu Simbel with any number of players. Abu Simbel can still mummify him after his strong abilitiy was used for a whopping 10 VP! So the opponents should remember that they should probably draft him before they give him to Abu Simbel (at least with lower player numbers where Abu Simbel is a significant percentage of all opponents).
