pull out (the) wild cards
play a wild card
someone or something whose behaviour is sometimes unexpected
The wild card in this election is the Green Party - no one knows exactly how much support they will get.
The whole thing is a wild card. Will Bernie Sanders burn down the stage? Will Joe Biden be able to fend off a barrage of attacks? Will the 1-percenters throw bombs at their rivals to get attention, or play it safe in their first introduction to a national audience?
“I would think it's the most likely [outcome], except Netanyahu is such a master of politics. He was able to pull wild cards in the past, so I think if anyone is capable of staying in power, it's him,” said Israeli academic Elizabeth Tsurkov, a fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. “It's a matter not just of political survival but also of avoiding prison time. So, he'll pull out all the stops.”
