    Default Magic Deck of Cards

    So, I was reading over a thread about the Deck of Many Things and I remembered a magic deck of cards that I created as one of my many "useless" magic items. However, now I want to create a magic deck of cards that's actually useful, so I turn to the Playground for help! I've been working to assign different attributes to different cards, but I could use some help.

    This is what I have thus far:

    If any regular card of the following types are drawn:
    Spades: ?? Perhaps Status or Augury, based on one of the Idiom meanings.
    Hearts: Possessor of the card gains the benefits of the False Life spell.
    Diamonds: Possessor of the card gains the benefits of the Barkskin spell.
    Clubs: Possessor of the card summons a Spiritual Weapon in the form of a club.

    Kings: ??
    Queens: ??
    Jacks: ??

    Joker: Possessor of the card is affected by the Hideous Laughter spell (no save.)

    Trying to stick with 2nd level spells for the time being. Determining the price also seems a bit difficult, unless I handwave it as a Lesser Artifact. I thought I'd have it so each card only works, say, once per week and once all the cards are spent, they must be shuffled to recharge.

    Me: The kind that armies have been using for millennia.
    DM: They didn't do it with swords!
    Me: Which makes us so much cooler.

    Player: Where are the babau in relation to everyone else?
    Me: They're right behind you. Vesil is covered in Loki's blood. That is their location in relation to you.
    Player: I was just wondering about a fireball.

    Well, there's the Spiritual Weapon one, thus far.
