Lucas honestly has a large advantage in this MU due to Joker's non-arsene recovery. Without arsene, Joker only has two real options to recover off stage: Airdodge/land high, or use grappling hook (upb). Lucas can stall out the airdodge and sweetspot fair as a punish, forcing them to use their hook. at this point, dair, the thunder projectile (upb), and bair all are excellent edgeguarding tools to generally spike Joker or disrupt their recovery, which will easily gimp them.

On stage, Eiha (sideb) can be absorbed by Lucas via PSI Magnet (downb), although joker's gun bullets (neutralb) won't be absorbed. Lucas's rope snake (zair) also will help deal with Joker's strong edgeguard game as a mixup to the regular PK Thunder recovery (upb). Also, PK Fire (sideb) and PK Freeze (neutralb) will help deal with Joker's attempts at approaching, leaving them only will gun to be aggressive from afar.

Personally, this should be a 7:3 matchup in favor for Lucas, as Joker without arsene can be easily gimped in recovery by Lucas, and his general approach options get crushed by Lucas's zoning tool and absorption mechanics.
