If you're going to cheat fate, after all, why not go all the way with a tarot deck. Use the Minor Arcana (minus the Pages) and two of the Major Arcana as your Jokers. I found this Steampunk Tarot deck at Books a Million the other day: Before opening it, I'd considered using the Fool as the Black Joker, and finding another suitable choice for the Red. But after seeing the cards, I went with Death as the Black Joker (far more appropriate, really), and Temperance as the Red. The artwork is stunning and the book with it is the size of a novel. As far as suit alignments go, for Malifaux and traditional cards (with a few mnemonic devices): Wands are Tomes are Clubs (Magic). Swords (to plowshares) are Spades are Crows. Pentacles (sometimes Coins) are Diamonds (riches) are Masks. Cups are Hearts (both overflowing) are Rams. The conversions between suits were much easier to picture thanks to the Retro Fate Deck's merged suits. Thank you once again, Xander.
