A junking attack or junker is an Attack card that puts undesirable cards—i.e., "junk"—into an opponent's deck, thus weakening the average strength of their hands and usually slowing cycling. The undesirable card par excellence is the Curse, and most junking attacks are cursers.
Some cards distribute undesirable cards other than Curse:
- Mountebank and Noble Brigand distribute Copper. (Mountebank is also a curser.)
- Marauder and Cultist distribute Ruins.
- Swindler, Ambassador, and Jester can distribute a wide variety of junk cards, depending on the luck of when they are played.
