Sorcerous Origin: The Major Arcana - A sorcerer that uses a tarot deck!

Time ago I got a tarot deck for using in my DnD sessions, but even though I used as a GM, I wanted to use them as a player too, but I think mostly of the magic decks are a bit broken due its randomness.
This is the first draft, so let me know what you think!
I'm creating a few other options for the cards, so hopefully the deck can have 50% combat-based cards and 50% RP/noncombat-based cards (the easiest way to do this is to add proficiency bonus to some skills for the next minute or so, but I haven't decided yet). Feel free to write suggestions!
Alternatively, I'm thinking on add a variation when you play the card reversed for a bit more of danger, but I want to make sure the class is fun and balanced first (something like wild magic options).

The Mesmer Class [v1.4] | A reaction-based class for interrupting your enemies (+ a new Guild Wars 2 inspired subclass!)

A new update to the class!

I've been working on this class from a while now, and the last week I uploaded a reworked/simplified version of the first one. Now thanks to the comments and suggestions I've updated again for balancing it a bit more plus adding a new subclass based on some requests from various reddit users: The Dueling Magic, which is inspired on the Guild Wars 2 class (the previous three subclasses were more focused on the GW1 Mesmer profession).

This new subclass makes the mesmer a bit more aggresive since it focus it as a close combat caster, helped with some illusions of itself to confuse their enemies. Since it's the first version of the subclass, there might be some balancing in the next days.

The Mesmer v1 [Reworked]

It's been a while since I updated this class, and honestly I liked the energy points instead spell slots, but the Incantation part was a bit complex (and I didn't liked much), so I decided to use the spell point variant found in the DMG for keeping the energy points and replacing the incantations with spells. I modified some class features and I've created a few more spells to fit some incantations I wanted to keep for this class and to give it a few more reaction spells for the fast casting feature.

With this changes, the class should be more friendly now, while keeping the flexibility of using and getting more energy points.

I still need to recreate the multiclassing part of the older version, but I want to make sure the core class is balanced enough first.
