Lum Bam-foo, Gambling Panda
Be a panda! Make stuff happen, win or lose!
You might not know it from first glance, but Lum is a smart and logical panda. It's just that he loves gambling and chaos and he loves for lots of fun things to happen. He likes to roll dice, but he knows the odds very well.
The Pandalands are having tough times these days, though Lum's spirits still remain high. He sought out Argagarg the water shaman for advice in the nearby Murkwood Marsh. There he learned of the Fantasy Strike tournament and after calling "heads, we enter; tails, bamboo," he signed up.

Blackjack: [During Combat] If you dodge an attack or Joker with this, discard cards from your deck until they total more than 21 or you decide to stop. Deal that much damage unless you went over 21. If you deal exactly 21, also put the cards in your hand. (Jokers count as 21.)
Q: When does Roll the Dice trigger?
A: When you damage the opponent with an attack during combat. This includes dodging, then hitting with an attack, and it also includes block damage when an opponent blocks your Jack, King, or Ace attack. It does not trigger from your Ace's Blackjack ability though (that's an ability on a dodge, not an attack).
Q: Can Roll the Dice trigger more than one time per combat?
Q: If I use Roll the Dice and get a 4-10, what does it mean when it says I get to return any face cards I played this turn if I attacked?
A: If you damage the opponent with an attack in combat, you can return to your hand any face cards you used as part of your combo, even face cards you used to pump an attack.
Q: Do Jokers count as wild cards when in Poker Flourish?
A: No, Jokers are never wild in Yomi.
Q: Do Aces count as high or low for straights when using Poker Flourish?
A: They count as both. A,2,3,4,5 is a straight and 10,J,Q,K,A is also a straight.
Q: What do the poker hands mean in Poker Flourish?
A: A straight mean 5 cards in a row. A flush means 5 cards of the same suit (hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades are the four suits). A full house means a pair and three-of-a-kind (such as two 6s and three Jacks). Four-of-a-kind is pretty self-explanatory (for example: four Kings). A straight flush is a straight (5 cards in a row) that are also all the same suit.
Q: What are the values of cards during Blackjack?
A: Jack, Queen, and King each count as 10. Aces can count as 1 or 11. Jokers count as 21. Numbered cards simply count as their own number (for example, a 6 of Hearts counts as a 6).
Q: If I dodge with Lum's Ace, can I hit back with a move like with other dodges, or can I only use the "Blackjack" ability?
A: You can only use the "Blackjack" ability.
Q: Can Rewind Time Jokers prevent the damage I deal with Blackjack?
A: No. Blackjack is an ability, but Rewind Time Jokers only prevent combat damage (damage from attacks and throws).
Q: When I reveal a 10 to activate Poker Flourish, can I use that same 10 card in my poker hand?
Q: What order do I put cards into my discard pile? This matters because of Poker Flourish.
A: Cards go into your discard pile in the order you played them. For example if you did a combo with 6, 7, 8, then the 8 would be the top card in your discard pile. If you aren't playing Lum, you don't have to worry about this though.
Q: When Roll the Dice (2-3) makes me draw the bottom card of my deck, and Persephone has Bare Your Soul active, what happens?
A: This does count as "drawing a card", and Bare Your Soul does apply. Persephone can make you draw one of the set-aside cards instead, as usual.
