I GUESS if you have a card that lets you look at their hand it could work. If they MAYBE have more than one of a certain card in their hand, and it just so HAPPENS to be one you don't really want. But in the mean time, it will sit in your hand, being a massive waste of space that could have been something that is not Hint of Insanity.

Going into my mishra EDH deck for sure!
1/5 Stars

Hey I run x4 of everything in my decks, this card could cause me to discard my entire hand on turn 1 if dark ritual.
2.5/5 has the potential to be game ending, but most likely will be a mind rot + reveal or no dice.

Cabal Therapy basically does this, especially when you flash it back and/or combine with Gitaxian Probe and other telepathy effects

Some minor fixes could have made this at least a playable card - as it is, there is a real possibility of spending 3 mana on NOTHING. Making this a more powerful Coercion would have at least rendered it more playable.

Fixed Hint of Insanity:
Target player reveals his or her hand. You choose a card from it. That player discards that card, and then discards all cards with the same name as that card.

Sure, you lose some of the spirit of the card, but it at least guarantees you never pay 3 mana for nothing. And seeing that Odyssey was a graveyard set, you could also use it on yourself to meet threshold or activate flashback, etc. While not amazing, it'd at least be playable.

I actually know someone who put this into their EDH deck. Of course, another guy in our group plays a demon deck with Shadowborn Apostle, so it kind of makes sense.
