There are various ways this type of effect has been used.
|Antoinette, Beautiful Battle Dragon Princess|

■ When this creature is destroyed, choose one of the following.
|Fire / Spell / 3|

■ Each player counts the cards in his hand, shuffles those cards into his deck, then draws that many cards.

When the card is considered to be discarded, you may only draw the same number of cards that are put into your graveyard. If you put a Madness creature into the battle zone instead of your graveyard, do not count that card in the number of cards that you draw.
There are 2 forms of Hand Change where the card can be discarded, or shuffled back into the deck. By returning cards to the deck, you can draw new cards without worry of being milled and having no cards left in your deck, but self-discard cards also have the option of Graveyard Manure for reanimate combos.
The ability is usually seen on cards in the Water Civilization known for drawing cards, as well as the Fire Civilization who have various Card Draw cards that also Self Discard to balance the card advantage.
- This was mainly introduced and featured on a higher amount of Fire cards after the Episode 3 block.
