So, in our third game of Ravens we had this question:

Can Ren see the cards that are dealt to her in order to set up her heart or they are arranged in a random way?
Or the cards are dealt randomly face down, and the only choice Ren has is to swap them, without looking at them.

We think its much more strategic if she can see which card uses in each poem row. We also find rules quite ambiguous about this

She looks at them and arranges at will.

I do not see why the rules should mention that Ren is allowed to choose the order of the cards if she would not have been allowed to glance at them before. Since then changing the order would not make a difference

Though you are right if you say the rules are not perfectly clear concerning this. But at least they say:
Setup wrote:
She [Ren] may check them [her Heart Cards] at any time

Dream's End wrote:
If any Ravens are dealt at this point, replace them with a memory card and re-shuffle the deck.


So we infered that sorting her Heart Cards is a part of Ren's strategic influence on the game.

When we want to raise the difficulty a little bit Ren isn't allowed to rearrange the cards (only to get replacements for raven cards). Often it doesn't do too much, but it is possible that it makes the third dream extremely difficult.
