How to Defeat Kismet: Take out the talisman, and once the talisman is in front of a hero, have that hero use the talisman’s ability to dictate which cards are on top of the villain deck. This will limit the amount of damage Kismet can deal.

Then, you want to make sure the talisman stays in front of the heroes as long as you can. Kismet deals two damage to the talisman at the beginning of her turn, so you’ll have to dedicate some healing for the talisman or find a way to redirect damage like Legacy’s Lead from the Front and Heroic Interception.

If Kismet manages to get her talisman back, repeat the process until you whittle her down.
