The purpose of having promos is to have a unique card for something that is already in the set as a common or uncommon (so you don;t have to play with the promo but you should know the effect regardless since it would be of a fairly good or commonly played common/uncommon).
Knowing the effect of a textless card would be no different than having to know what the current effect of "Clash".
Also a judge would be on hand a premiere events to let your opponent know its effect if they already didn't.
