Nath's Buffoon
Nath's BuffoonLorwyn common. The creature depicted in Nath's Buffoon is a boggart goblin that's been enslaved by Nath of the Gilt-Leaf to be a court fool. You can see Nath's shadow in the background of the buffoon's art!

Liar's Pendulum
Liar's PendulumMirrodin rare. Liar's Pendulum started life as as a riff on Cursed Scroll, but the design team changed its effect to card-drawing for flavor reasons.

Jester's Sombrero
Jester's SombreroUnglued rare. Each card in Unglued has a bonus word on its rules text line, which can be combined to form a bonus joke. But did you know that the words sometimes tie in to the card on which they appear? Consider Jester's Sombrero, which has flavor text spoken by a small Mexican dog. And the bonus word? "Chihuahuas". Fascinating!

Trickery Charm
Trickery CharmOnslaught common. Things have changed since the days of Onslaught. For example, the entire direction David Martin was given for Trickery Charm was "Blue mist in a glass charm shaped like a shell." The original sketch was a little more clown-centric than the creative team liked. You can see it here.

2410
Jester's CapIce Age rare. Some people say that the face on the Ice Age version of Jester's Cap was modeled on Richard Garfield. Maybe it was and maybe it wasn't. The statue of the jester doesn't look much like Richard, though. (The statue can be seen in context in this Mark Rosewater article.)
