Cut the Deck (Ex): You may use cards of any type as weapons, functioning as daggers. You are treated as if you have the Weapon Finesse (dagger) and Weapon Focus (dagger) feats, but they only apply to the use of cards, not actual daggers.

52-card Pick-up (Ex): You flick your entire deck of cards into the air. All enemies within 20 feet of you must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + your Dex mod + 1/2 level) or take 1d4 damage and be knocked prone. Until your deck is picked up, all enemies treat this area as difficult terrain filled with caltrops.

Dealer's Choice (Ex): You may use an attack with your cards to deliver spell attacks to enemies, including throwing them to deliver touch attacks.<-class feature game rule information->

Heart of the Cards (Su): Whenever you need to draw a card (for any purpose, from any deck), you may instead draw two cards and pick which you want to keep. The other card is returned to the bottom of the deck. If drawing multiple cards, you must use this ability for a single card at a time. For example, if drawing a 5 card hand, you draw two, pick one and put the second on the bottom of the deck, draw the next two, pick one, and so on until you have a full.

Playing with a Full Deck (Su): Once per day, you may turn any deck of cards into a Deck of Many Things. Each time you use this ability, it is treated as a new Deck of Many Things for the purposes of drawing, even if used on the same deck of cards every time. You can use this feature an additional time per day at 10th, 15th, and 20th levels.
