Action Cards repped by playing cards?

Jokers = 4 points
Royals = 3 points
Number = 2 points
Aces = 1 point

I know using a playing card deck is pretty trite in Wild West games (Malifaux, Legends of the Old West, Deadlands, etc), but it seems we'd be better served here by playing cards rather than having a custom deck. The action deck is 32 cards right now. Are the odds in that deck /that/ well balanced that a playing card deck couldn't substitute? The proposal above reduces the number of 4 points possible, and greatly increases the proportion of 2 points.
