Calculated Gamble is a Uncommon Skill card for the Silent. When played, the player's current hand is discarded and that many cards are drawn, effectively shuffling the player's hand.

When Upgraded, Calculated Gamble no longer Exhausts.

Interactions[]

  • Calculated Gamble works well with cards that have effects upon being discarded, such as Reflex and Tactician. It also plays well with cards that have their energy cost decreased upon the discarding of other cards, such as Sneaky Strike and Eviscerate.
  • Calculated Gamble synergizes well with Tingsha.png Tingsha and ToughBandages.png Tough Bandages, dealing three damage to a random enemy and adding three Icon Block.png Block to the player respectively for every discard.
  • Calculated Gamble does not synergize well with cards that enable Icon Retain.png Retain, such as Well-Laid Plans, as Calculated Gamble can discard a valuable card.
  • Calculated Gamble's upgrade can be a large priority, since it's effect can be the core of specific decks.

Update History[]

  • Weekly Patch 4: Full speed ahead!
    • Calculated Gamble card nerfed.

Trivia[]

  • The card depicts a "false" die, as a fair die can never have both the 3-side and the 4-side visible. They should be on opposite sides.
    • This could be an oversight, or dice in the Spire universe simply work differently.
