    It's the magic of the forum game of Telephone.
    1) There's been mention of a fairly major shaman rework upcoming.
    2) There have been rumours surrounding that rework of shaman losing vodun (no basis for them, as far as I know, but the rumours exist).
    3) Shaman and jester (basically) share a skill in vodun/puppetry

    6) ....
    7) Jester is getting a rework and losing tarot.

    That or someone just made it up to troll people.
    Monks are losing the ability to wield rapiers? Damn

    I really like the ideas of a performance-related skill with an emphasis on using trickery to secure advantages in combat and keep your opponents guessing. I would be sad to see either tarot or puppetry go, though--tarot has a neat connection to jester history and seems to be thematically appropriate (even if some of the flavor is a bit demonic), and puppetry is nice because it gives jesters an option for slow prep that they can use while they hinder and dodge around.
