The axiom of implausibility states that the more outlandish the crime, the less the police will believe the witnesses …. The name of the deck is taken from a graphic novel I read in Heavy Metal Magazine a long time ago, featuring an assassin in a skimpy bikini, an exploding microwave, and a pair of flaming boxer shorts. The goal is to leave your opponent so confused by what’s happening they won’t know what to prepare for.

Abusing instants and sorceries is the core mechanic here, but look out for mutants, sharknados, living fractals, questionable applications of high voltage, and a truly impressive herd of flying horses. Things are about to get weird.
