THE JACK STRATEGY GUIDE

By taking a Jack Deck to the Crypto Court Table, you transform into a masterful strategic expert who uses your superior playing abilities and experience to outwit the table. Jack cards host a varied toolkit of support cards and powerful card manipulation effects that reward solid play and a knowledge of poker math – a true Jack of All Trades. The Jack deck mostly supports solid-aggressive strategies, particularly heads up play, with many of his cards gaining additional effects as you win pots.

Along with versatile comeback mechanics and answer cards, the Jack Deck has a strong set of abilities that support a “midrange” style of gameplay.

READY FOR ANYTHING

As The Jack learned from commanding his legion of knights on the battlefield, a good tactician needs adaptability and answers in hand for a slew of situations. To this end, The Jack utilizes a varied suite of support cards that excel in many different scenarios. Whether the table is heavy on TILTED cards, aggressive, or passive, you’ll be able to turn the tables on any single opponent with a hand of silver bullets.

MAY THE ODDS BE IN YOUR FAVOR

Don’t like your cards? Just redraw! When The Jack is heating up, he gains access to some of the most powerful hole and board card manipulation available in the game. This unique ability to drastically affect the board allows him to manipulate and maneuver into the best position possible to take down hands and keep the power cards flowing.

THE SHOWDOWN SAVANT

When The Jack isn’t winning pots, he starts to lose steam and access to his card manipulation. But any battlefield commander knows that a single key move can turn the tide! The Jack’s most powerful showdown cards let you quickly regain control of the table by winning a key hand. This lets you rapidly recover and turn the tables on any villains trying to cut in on your action of running the game.

If you’re coming to the table with a confident swagger and an unquenchable thirst for victory… then Outplay and PUNISH the villains with the swagger of the Jack Deck!

ADVANCED TIPS ON COMBO DECKS

Being the most adaptable member of the court, The Jack has a variety of cards that can be tailored to any number of strategies. This lets him shift the direction of his aggressive style to your specific strengths as a player, or to those of your opponents.

Here are some cards from the other members of the court that adapt The Jack Deck to counter other strategies you may come across.

THE JACK AND THE KING

THE JACK and THE KING can come together to create a deck that is very strong against TILTED strategies. With the two strongest TITLED recovery cards available, combined with the King’s SHOWDOWN and BETTING MANIUPLATION support, this creates a strong pairing that is resilient to some of the most brutal strategies Crypto Court has to offer.

THE JACK AND THE QUEEN

THE JACK and THE QUEEN together have access to most of the COUNTER cards in the game, and when paired together they dominate in shutting down single opponents and crippling power card plays. This strategy is particularly effective against opponents who are new to strategy card games that are unfamiliar with counterplay, or those who build one-dimensional decks that center around key power cards that you can wait to counter at the perfect time.

THE JACK AND THE JOKER

THE JACK and THE JOKER can be combined to be the trickiest pairing in the game, doubling down on the Jack’s CARD MANIPULATION strategy. With the addition of more power cards that swap out or replace board and hole cards, you can steal pots out of nowhere that you would normally have no business winning. This strategy is sure to be a thorn in the side of any overly aggressive players plaguing the poker table, as your odds of winning key hands and important check-raises drastically increase.
