Une Lueur d'Espoir

There are a few good synergies here to bring up. First, Minh and any version of Grisly Totem.

With Minh, each one of these can be +2 Wild, therefore making it roughly equivalent to 3 Unexpected Courages, which you can pull back from discard at will. That's honestly pretty great, and at its best, is pretty close to a never ending stream of Unexpected Courage.

With Grisly Totem, you'll get the exact same effect. If you have the Seeker Grisly Totem, you could even be drawing a card each time as well.

With Minh AND Grisly Totem, you can stack those effects. That means you'll be able to get +3 Wild icons, 3 times, on a card you can pull back to your hand from discard for 1r.

Of course, to maximize these interactions, you want to commit one and only Glimmer per round, as these abilities have per round limits.

Keep in mind that pulling back 3 Glimmers at once is a burst of 3 cards in your hand. This can empower other effects which note how many cards are in your hand, such as Curiosity, Higher Education, and so on.

Outside of Minh and Grisly Totem, the other great use of Glimmer is as discard fodder for something like Wendy, Pete, or Cornered. You can happily chuck these cards into your discard pile whenever and draw them all back when you need to. Of course, other cards are discard fodder (Winging It, et al.), however those cards can't bounce back into your hand nor do they have icons in case you need commitments. Due to its easy recursion and flexibility of use, Glimmer is the most reliable discard fodder currently in the game.

I think Patrice is going to love this card too. — Schielman · 27
I'm not so sure this is a great Patrice card tbh. The issue for her is the action it requires to retrieve them. Other investigators can afford to take this action when they have a spare moment and then hold the cards in hand. For Patrice she can only do it when she knows she has a test to take that same turn, and this then reduces her to only two remaining actions. It also cuts down on the number of actions she can feasibly use it for. If it's a key fight or evade check she's likely to be engaged with an enemy and will need to take an AoO. Oddly, this means that the card is less flexible in Patrice than it would be in another deck. — Sassenach · 136
Patrice's Elder Sign is also relatively common because she tests often, and her Elder Sign encourages you to shuffle your deck back together sans 1 card (usually Watcher). Glimmer is actually very unlikely to fire at 2 or 3 copies in the discard in a Patrice deck. — StyxTBeuford · 12435
This is my favorite survivor card. — dlikos · 20
Don’t forget with Minh it also has the bonus of being 3 cards to contribute to a skill test to help with getting through her signature weakness (where you can’t contribute 1 or 2 cards to a test when she has the king in yellow out) so having three minor cards that all cooperate with any other test is very helpful at clearing the king — Phoenixbadger · 152
