So I originally designed this card with multiplayer in mind with some application in single player. I thought it would be really cool to actually get Dinos from other players to use against them and saw some pretty interesting synergies. In solo I had the 1st edition and had a huge problem with losing some key cards from the hatchery and thought it would be nice to get them back. So yeah I can see where you all are coming from and in hindsight would have changed the evolution points used to pay for it.
Bit expensive for not being able to draw a card like many other Evolve cards, but it is a life saver when fighting Tyrannosaurus minions. I had not considered taking an opponent's eliminated apex card, as it makes little sense but hey, that is the mechanic for you.
