These are

wildcards. The terms unscrambled are One Eyed Jacks, Deuce and Jokers, and Trey

which serve this purpose in the games

draw poker, deuce wilder poker, jokers wild poker, and... three's wild poker?

Are you

Shuffled cards

Because

You have nicknames of cards mixed up like "one eyed jack", "joker", "deuce", and "trey", which are all card names..

Are you

This is because

All the cards are nicknames of poker cards, mixed up.
