If you look at it, both she and Sheriff Anderson have similar functions except that Anderson can take any card from the discard pile, meanwhile Sally can only take heroic cards.

It's like being given cash and a gift card.

Sally doesn't have to spend a search action to get her card...And she can get it any time. So, there's the balance I suppose.

Plus, you have to look at the character as a whole. Sally has an ongoing special ability (Lucky Defense) as well as her Youth abilities, while the Sheriff has his shotgun (which is prone to run out of ammo) and starts with a negative card on him. The Sheriff's Survivor ability might be stronger, but depending on how you look at it, that could be deliberate balance.

I have played this several times and never have really used this ability with her. We always thought sally was actually pretty strong because of her youth ability and especially because of her lucky. The zombies always hate it when she is drawn as a hero.
