To have an ace up one's sleeve = tto have an ace in the role (neither is related to "not playing with a full deck")
The following expressions are but two very common ways to say stupid/crazy.
" To not be the sharpiest knife in drawer"
"To have a few cards short of full deck"
The lights are on, but nobody is home
Not to have both oars in the water
To be shy a sandwich from having a picnic
Not to be the sharpest tool in the shed
And many, many more...
