"Tracking" is currently an evergreen card effect in MtG.  It's blue and costs 2 mana and it's called "Anticipate".  The other two cards go to the bottom of your deck, not your discard pile, but the bottom of your deck in MtG is very similar to discard in Hearthstone because in Hearthstone you can't interact with the unused cards in any way, and in MtG no one ever decks out, so you won't be interacting with those two cards in any way. 

In PTCG this effect would probably cost zero, you'd complain that seems too good, and the design team would shrug and say why don't all you guys run the maximum number of copies, then.  The deck manipulation PTCG allows is crazy and makes it pretty fun.

Oh wait, the PTCG card is called Acro Bike.

It only looks at 2, not three, keep one, discard the other.
Some people didn't run the maximum number of copies just because other PTCG cards are even more busted.  But some people did, I did  (decking yourself is pretty real, that's a valid concern). 
I think it's not in their standard format anymore.

Thanks for posting, since I haven't played recent Dominion expansions. The secret history says that the initial design had no artifacts, so it might've originally been a pure draw 1 of 3, like Tracking.
