Also in regards to Predictamancy's tactical value... we don't know nothing about it. It is possible, that Predictamancy is nearly useless in battle. But consider the futile air defense Haffaton engaged in, to me that says that Jack provided the decoys but it was Marie who predicted which ones will be hit, and more importantly which ones won't. If I had to describe this as a mechanic AKA a Rule of Erfworld I would say that predictamancers can see the small things that will happen in the near future, but can also see big things, important things, which have a very high probability of happening (Fate) even for distant futures.
This is also in line with what we know of Delphie Temple I think, she feared the fact that she had no fate and so manipulated her ruler to keep her out of combat, so she couldn't make battlefield predictions but also wasn't likely to die. Of course this does not prove my theory, all it proves is the fact that we don't know that much of Predictamancy, but it does give it strength.
