An additional markdown to denote that a message is sarcastic. For example a section could be surrounded in dual question marks.
??Good game guys??
That portion of the message would then be printed in comic sans.
This would allow for much clearer communication of sarcasm over the written medium and reduce miscommunication. Similar to the way twitch uses kappa to denote sarcasm this would give discord a bit of it's own language that does not translate poorly to the outside world.
/s after sarcasm works fine from my experience
This idea is dumb. But being able to change font makes sense.

Not just a sarcasm font, I find it would be great to adjust font overall. I'd prefer to have all my text in Comic Sans. Voted.
since sarcasm is implied and contextual, would a sarcasm font become redundant from people using it sarcastically?
I agree with Sire. This should be a command /s
I vote for backwards italics for sarcasm.
I don't feel comfortable messing with the Markdown specifications. Remember, Markdown is made as a lightweight markup language, and adding useless stuff kinda defeats the purpose.

There isn't comic sans, but if you want to change your text font, you can use this.

just use irony punctuation

There's plenty of other ways to indicate sarcasm over text without specific markdown, although allowing users to change the font of their text sounds like a cool idea
voted for comic sans
i would prefer spoiler tags and masked links. italics works just fine for sarcasm emphasization
This will be hard to introduce because Discord uses markdown.

it wouldn't be markdown then would it?
You're my hero
If you need to mark sarcasm maybe you're doing something wrong.
italics generally work just fine. I think there are other features are much more desperately needed than a special sarcasm font.
