Ah, it is not really thrown away. A bit part these WEYWUT or WONAFYT casting are done with the extra mana you get from early exploration, that would otherwise be lost.
Once we are getting into tougher fights, we cast less of these. Unless we wish to get a first strike or need to position the monster.

I would argue that WEYTWUT is itself what drives more aggressive exploration. There are circumstances where you would be wasting exploration resources, but a fair chunk of the time those exploration resources could be used differently; notably conserved for regen-fighting or BLUDTUPOWA, or used to fuel other non-combat glyphs such as ENDISWAL. It's true that WEYTWUT is a waste reduction tool, but the changes to your behavior and strategy are more significant IMO.
