Mayhem will play the top card of your Draw Pile at the start of each turn.

The cost of the played card is ignored, meaning high cost cards can be potentially played for free.

Interactions[]

  • Playing a Curse or Status card via Mayhem will place the card into your discard pile, bypassing end-of-turn negative effects from cards such as Doubt and Burn.
  • Playing Mayhem with Echo Form will cause Mayhem's automatically played card to be played twice, rather than allowing you to choose the first card.
  • The card is played after you have drawn your hand, which prevents the use of effects like Headbutt to set up a particular card for Mayhem to play for free, but allows you to play that card at the best point in your turn.
