Major enabler for a specific build:

Double or Nothing and All In both have (limit one per test) text. That means once either card has been committed its corresponding copy becomes an invalid target for Daredevil.

As a result once you have Daredevil plus any one copy of Double or Nothing, All In, or a second Daredevil (and no other rogue skill cards in deck) you're guaranteed to get both DoN and All In onto the same test, allowing you to pull up to 10 cards with zero weaknesses. With any luck this can pull you into a second copy of both All In and DoN, allowing for extremely quick deck-cycling.

There's a major catch to this build: for one you cannot include any other rogue skills except an additional copy of Daredevil without risking interrupting the combo. You can include non-rogue skill options however, and for a deck which has the potential to pull twenty cards in a turn its probably not a bad idea to lean into the actionless, costless economy options available to you. Still Rogue has essentially the best collection of skill cards in the game, and missing out on them to enable this combo isn't nothing. This is also an 18-20xp combo with taboo. not cheap

That being said if you can build a deck that otherwise moves quickly you can set up an amazingly potent self-sustaining combo. Toss in some Easy Marks and run this out of Skids as a way to dump all that extra money into actions and you can blitz through scenarios with card draw that will embarrass anything but the most draw-heavy seekers.

beware tho

What do you do when you dont now if a card is any good? You flee in numbers.

First the obvious:

  1. Daredevil gives costs 2xp
  2. Gives a
  3. After the commitment, you can reveal another skill to commit to the

Of course the -token isnt good for 2xp, so the main-part is the other skill card, but what other skills are there? The fact is that -skills dont have so awesome icons (apart from Cunning), so I would consider to take a skill for its special effect. These skills are:

All of these Skills only give you 1-2 skill points, so there special abillity is there plus, wich means the effect of Daredevil is mesaured by the effect of this skill card. The last thing to talk about now is Cunning. If you have enough resources, this card gives 3/, in this case Daredevil could replace Cunning, if you have enough resources but not the card itself.

Fazit
I dont think this card is very good, because it really needs a good other skill to be of use. I only would use it if I have a Double or Nothing & Quick Thinking combo running, in this case the card is very good. The problem I see here is the wrong faction, all other faction (Mystic excluded) have cards that offer 3 and does not have this kind of cards. Most of the 30 card decks have enough chance to have the right cards at the right time, but if you want these cards with a higher chance to the right time in your hand, it is also considerebale, but then you need a high skill card procentage.

Now, if the card allows you to DoN twice in one test (overriding the Max 1 limit), this could be pretty good. Question it, does it? — petercheungjr · 1
By my reckoning, no; "reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal a skill you can commit to this test. Commit it." Once we have commited one copy of DoN, the second is not 'a card you can commit to this test.' At least this saves you from accidently quadrupling the difficulty of your test. — Spritz · 56
Good point. I didn't RTFC. Now, I can't recur a card from the discard pile with this, can I? Say if there is no viable target in the deck (but one in the discard pile), I will just reveal cards in the whole deck and reshuffle all the cards revealed without committing any, right? — petercheungjr · 1
this card does thin your deck by one, so might have some application in trying to offset the extra cards from Versatile — Zinjanthropus · 94
