Additional Rules from the Rulebook[]

If there are fewer than 4 cards left in your deck, reveal all the cards in your deck, shuffle your discard pile (which does not include currently revealed cards), and then reveal the remainder needed. Action - Victory cards are Victory cards. Curse cards are not Victory cards. Take all revealed Victory cards into your hand; you cannot choose to leave some on top. You do not have to reveal the order that you put cards back in.

The Secret History of Scout[]

In an article on Board Game Geek, Donald X. Vaccarino commented on the development of Scout:

One of the cards added when going to 25 cards. It was another previously untried idea from the files. I picked it out as it interacted with the victory-cards-that-do-something. It does a few other tricks too.[1]
