Joker, Out of his Mind

Ever have the problem, when looking at your opening hand, of having either all of your high drops or all of your low drops, and having to decide whether to keep it or ship it back? Then you wind up missing a drop or two and losing hard? Maybe it's just me, but sometimes you keep a hand, then regret it, and then take a beating. Well, Uncle Joker is here to help.
For the price of a discard, he'll take all of the cards in your hand, and replace them with (hopefully) new ones. Even better, first you get to shuffle your old hand into your deck, so you're not just relegating them to the bottom (like in a mulligan) where they'll never be seen again. Joker works best as a plot twists, you don't really want him to see the field.
Even better, use him to power-up a Joker in the late game, then use his effect to ship your hand and hopefully score some better power-ups mid-attack.
Tricky tricky.


The Joker

Another great villain of all time. Not as cool as Lex, but still pretty cool…


The Joker

Out of His Mind

Arkham Inmates/3/5/4

Whenever The Joker is discarded, you may remove him from the game. If you do, shuffle your hand into your deck, then draw a card for each card you shuffled in.


Reload. Oh, right. No Yu-gi-oh references. I meant, Prison Break. Dammit, I don’t want any references to that show either, crap…


Anyway, if you got a crappy hand and you need a new one, and you somehow have a way to discard him, there you go. More cards. Has combo potential, but not really viable as a character card.


In sealed, playable as a 3 drop. That’s it.


Constructed: 3/5

Sealed: 3/5


We couldn’t review the Insane Joker? He’s much cooler…



jajais4u Ok, the Joker makes me think. Seriously. Every Joker card made me think a little more than others. As a matter of fact every Joker made me think. I've seen the preview to the upcoming Batman movie, and Heath Ledger's (rest in peace) performance made me think. It looks as good as Jack Nickelson's, which made me think as well. This version of the Joker is very good actually. A deck archetype of the Arkham Inmates is random discard for effects. Now he can help you get rid of a weird or horrible hand (words that are usually associated with the Joker) to help you get a more reasonable and better hand (words usually not associated with the Joker).

Sealed - 3.0
Constructed - 3.0
