Deck Master[edit]

"Lady Luck is smilin'."

As a Deck Master, you have learned to throw playing cards with deadly accuracy, enhancing them with even deadlier spells. You consider luck to be just as important as skill, and you have developed such a strong connection to the force of luck that you've gained the ability to manipulate fate itself.
