Agreed, but it's a technique necessitated by an assumption in the rules that I'm still not convinced is correct. (Vic being in that other thread, by itself, does not give it the authority of a resolution.)
I suspect that the phrase "retrieve the blessings from the blessings deck" was written before there was ever an option for anything else to be in the blessing deck except for blessings; it's a carry-over from the Rise of the Runelords rules text. I think it's too much to read into it "retrieve blessings only, ignoring all other cards that aren't blessings in some unspecified way you devise from the blessings deck." Other places in the rules go out of their way to explain what to do with cards you might get at in ways that aren't expected; they don't leave it open what to do in those cases. Frencois' technique is a reasonable solve to mask knowledge, but I'm not yet convinced it's right to seek a technique for this.
