Why would you ever start with Open Memories (search your deck for a card) in your starting hand....instead of just getting the actual card that you would fetch with Open Memories? OM costs 2 dice that don't need to be spent.

Now, I can see the case that you can fetch something to react to your opponent, but that doesn't seem worth 2 dice.

Along that note, it sure seems like a strong play to start with all three Summon Silver Snake cards. They don't cost dice to put into play, cannot be removed once there, and make your snakes so much better when you use them.

Am I missing anything?

So you can get a double. Like of summon snakes

Your first five have to be unique.

First Five have to be all different cards. OM is the only way to effectively start with two copies of a card.

Another reason to have it is to possibly react to an opponents play. You could have several counter type cards in your deck and having access to all of them with that card could be nice depending on how your opponent plays the first couple of turns.

I think this is one of the best cards for her strategy to start with to get 2x Snakes or whatever.
