Extreme Exploration

Adelaide is playing in a Standard PPTQ, and casts Jadelight Ranger, which resolves. They point out the explore trigger, and it resolves. They set their hand face-down in front of them, and pick up the top card of their deck to look at. As they do, the second card in their deck flicks off the top of the deck, and slides into their hand, still face down. The players don’t touch anything and call for a judge.

What do you do?

The extra card isn’t distinguishable, so this can’t be Looking at Extra Cards. If it was obvious what the card was, this would fall under that infraction. Adelaide receives a warning for Hidden Card Error. Have the opponent look at Adelaide’s hand, and shuffle a card of the opponent’s choice into Adelaide’s library.
