Hmmm. Tempted to suggest this could be even cheaper, since "Reveal your hand" isn't usually a huge downside. But it's already cheap enough, I guess. Or... is a player with no cards in hand allowed to reveal no cards? Or can they not make that choice, and have to take the 3 damage? Because that's certainly a valuable ability, if so.

I like the seriously icky images suggested in the flavour text; it'd be a worrisome magic show I fear.

I'm pretty sure you can reveal an empty hand.

This is definitely meant to be a bad card; Lurking Informant's mongoloid sibling. It may be suited to being a 2/1 though, as that would still be awful and perhaps more indicative of a skeevy mercenary that carries a knife.
