Cards with Exhaust when played will instead Discard 50% of the time.

Cards Exhausted through effects other than their own are not saved. Ethereal cards are not typically Exhausted when played, so they will not be saved. Similarly, Deus Ex Machina is Unplayable, and its effect does not count as a play.

Cards played by Havoc and Omniscience are temporily given the "Exhaust" effect, so they can be saved by Strange Spoon after play. If the card is Unplayable, however (e.g. Tactician), it will Exhaust without being played, preventing Strange Spoon from triggering.

  • As of version 2.0, Strange Spoon interacts oddly with Omniscience. If the card played by Omniscience is saved by Strange Spoon, it will have the Exhaust effect for the rest of battle, and will try to Exhaust every time it is played.[1] Havoc does not have the same issue.

Strange Spoon is a Shop Relic.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Remember, this isn't always to your advantage.
    • Some effects (e.g. Dark Embrace or DeadBranch.png Dead Branch) reward you for exhausting your cards, and won't function if this saves them.
    • Other cards (e.g. Shiv, Pride) you'll want to exhaust rather than having them remain to clutter your deck.
    • Statuses played with MedicalKit.png Medical Kit and Curses played with BlueCandle.png Blue Candle will be discarded instead of exhausted.
  • Because Apparitions normally exhaust when played and are incredibly powerful, it may be worthwhile to invest in buying a Strange Spoon if you have them, or in taking the Apparitions if you have Strange Spoon already. Doing so will likely strengthen your deck greatly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This relic's flavor text references a popular stage magic called spoon bending.
    • The practice itself was popularized by the magician Uri Geller, and has been tied to psychokinetic or paranormal ability. It has been referenced in popular culture many time, such as a scene in The Matrix, when a young boy bends a spoon to demonstrate the unreality of a computer simulation, and an evolutionary line of a Psychic-type Pokémon Abra, namely Kadabra and Alakazam, which are said to utilize spoons to amplify their psychokinetic capabilities.
