That's really just a long-winded way of saying "Choose one of the top two cards of your library at random." The process doesn't really matter. Unless your deck has something that e. g. reveals the top card of your library (Future Sight) - in that case it's worse, and I think that randomness would be preferable for a "thoughtless" shot.

Now if you want to go for a mini-game, then putting something like "Exile a card from your hand and the top card of your library face-down. An opponent chooses one..." seems like more of a track to go. Your opponent will likely pick the more random card from your library over the chosen from hand, but you have the chance to tuck away an otherwise dead card.

I don't think that's quite there yet, but any better ideas off the top of my head that don't change the effect on a very fundamental level seem too wordy.
