What you ask makes a lot of sense but I don't think it is currently
supported.

I would go for a workaround involving moving the cards from the normal
no-search deck to a temporary search-allowed one:

a) Remove the "search specific card" from the deck;

b) Create a second (normally empty) deck location on the map ("search
area" or something), with "search specific card" allowed;

c) Have whoever plays the "search deck" card activate/click on some
button/command (for example a right click command on the card itself or
maybe a "start search" button next to the search area);

d) Have the above command invoke a global key command on all cards in
the deck to issue a return to deck on each one of them and send them all
to the "search area" deck, while at the same time reporting this
happened via a report command trait;

e) Have the player search and draw the cards he/she wants from the
search area deck and then click on another button/command somewhere (for
example the same button as before which now shows "end search" via a
layer trait) to return all cards back to the original deck.
