These specific card from creature force you to discard another card between your forth left.
Which isn't totally bad since you can react with the play of others players, but it put you on a really bad spot if you are caught again at the second turn.
And we are just not agree with the % of the time 4 is blocked first turn. It appear I got that a lot more (>~30% cause of randomness) and you got few.
So another question who are totally linked :
Are you ok to lose 2 card 25% of the time and loose one another card for getting a token on a beach 75% of the time? (since let's say the 4,5% left is when the creature block 1+2+5 instead or play another good card)
Even for me, the question is difficult, it seem fairly close.
