The '''deck of wonders''' is a "pure" deck containing eight distinct cards. Its cards can also be found in the decks of [[deck of war|war]] and [[deck of changes|changes]].

The '''deck of wonders''' selects its cards only from its own archetype deck, and is considered a "pure" deck.

==Focus card==
+
==History==
Moves one point from your worst stat to your best stat (these are selected randomly if all your stats are equal). This can set a stat to [[stat zero|zero]].
+
The deck was removed in [[0.19]].
 
 
==Shuffle card==
 
Rearranges your natural stat values. For example, if your natural stats are Str 28 Int 5 Dex 10, then after a Shuffle you might have Str 10 Int 28 Dex 5. Shuffle does not exist in basic decks and is relatively rare in ornate decks.
 
 
 
==Experience card==
 
This card makes you more [[Experience|experienced]]. If you are below level 27:
 
*Power level 0-1: Gain power * 100 experience points towards your next level, but never enough to gain more than one level.
 
*Power level 2: Gain a level.
 
 
 
You also receive experience for your skill advancement: 200 + power * 50 experience points, up to a maximum of 20k additional XP.
 
 
 
==Wild Magic card==
 
Inflicts a random miscast effect on you. Higher power tends to mean deadlier miscasts effects.
 
 
 
==Helix card==
 
*Power level 0: If you have no mutations, gain one. Otherwise, with equal probability:
 
**Gain one random mutation.
 
**Lose one random mutation then gain one random mutation.
 
**Lose one random mutation.
 
*Power level 1: If you have no mutations, gain one (likely to be good). Otherwise, with equal probability:
 
**Gain one mutation (likely to be good)
 
**Lose one mutation (likely to be bad if you have any bad mutations).
 
**Gain one mutation and lose one mutation, with following probabilities:
 
***25%: Lose one probably-bad mutation and gain one random mutation.
 
***25%: Lose one random mutation and gain one probably-good mutation.
 
***50%: Lose one random mutation and gain one random mutation.
 
*Power level 2: With equal probability:
 
**Lose a probably-bad mutation; no effect if you have no mutations.
 
**Gain one probably-good mutation.
 
**With equal probability:
 
***Lose a probably-bad mutation if you have any, then gain a random mutation.
 
***Lose a random mutation, then gain a probably-good mutation.
 
 
 
If you expect a Power level 2 Helix effect and have no mutations, it is a good idea to drink a [[Potion of mutation]] first.
 
  
If you expect a Power level 1 Helix effect and have no mutations, do *not* drink a [[Potion of mutation]] first. 
+
==See also==
 
+
*[[Cards]]
Power level 0 is a net win on average when your current mutations, taken as a set, are worse than having no mutations at all.
+
*[[Decks]]
 
 
==Sage card==
 
Temporarily diverts incoming XP towards a skill. The closer a skill is to level 20, the more likely it is to be selected, though every skill is eligible. Gives a [[manual]]-like bonus at power 1 and 2.
 
 
 
In 0.10 it is no longer possible to alter a Sage effect you don't like by waiting for it to time out or replacing it with another one.  Multiple Sage effects stack, even if they affect the same skill, so if you have a +10% Sage for 1000 xp and a +24% Sage for 2000 xp, they'll steal 3000 xp total, putting 3580 xp into that skill.
 
 
 
== Trowel card ==
 
If you are not standing on a "critical feature", drawing the Trowel card performs an action as shown below:
 
 
 
* Power level 0: 93% chance to create an altar to a random god,if it doesn't create an altar the terrain at your feet will become an ordinary floor.
 
* Power level 1: One or other of the following (50% chance for each)
 
** Attempts to create a random hostile statue (equal chance of ice, orange crystal, or silver) and a random friendly golem (equal chance of clay, wood, stone, iron, crystal, or toenail), both in your immediate vicinity. These are permanent creatures and count for experience.
 
** Create a random decorative statue (equal chance of granite statue or orcish idol) in your immediate vicinity.
 
* Power level 2: Creates a random portal (one of a [[bailey]], [[bazaar]], [[labyrinth]], [[ziggurat]], or [[trove]]) at the player's feet.  Each portal type can be generated by this card only once per game.
 
 
 
==Tips==
 
To be safest when drawing from a pure deck of wonders:
 
*Don't blind draw without [[mutation resistance]] as Wild Magic may add contamination, potentially a lot at high power.
 
*Don't blind draw ornate or legendary due to Shuffle.
 
 
 
==History==
 
In [[0.14]] the [[Alchemist Card]] was moved from wonders to [[Deck of escape]], and the Trowel card was added to decks of wonders.
