Description Edit | History

User summary:

Licensed game aids for fifth-edition Dungeons & Dragons produced by Gale Force Nine, released in several sets which detail all the spells and spell-like abilities from the game.

The cards are standard poker size (3.5 inches × 2.5 inches / 88mm × 63.5mm) and are laminated to allow use with dry-erase markers and to protect against spills.

Each card's face describes one spell, including its name, level and school, casting time, range, components, duration, and description: where a description is abridged owing to space limitations, a Player's Handbook page reference is also provided. (Cards from the Elemental deck include page references to both the Princes of the Apocalypse adventure and the Elemental Evil Player's Companion supplement; those from the Xanathar's Guide deck include page references to Xanathar's Guide to Everything.) Some spells include additional entries describing how their effects change when they are cast with higher-level slots.

The back of each card shows a class-specific pattern plus the spell's level for ease of sorting. (Exceptions: Cards from the Elemental deck and the Xanathar's Guide deck have unique backs and include class icons on the front of the card; cards from the Arcane and Arcane Archetypes decks share a single back rather than being warlock-, wizard-, or sorcerer-specific.)

User comments:

The original 2014 release included six decks:

  • Arcane (231 cards) [includes Warlock, Wizard, and Sorcerer spells]
  • Bard (120 cards)
  • Cleric (106 cards)
  • Druid (110 cards)
  • Paladin (45 cards)
  • Ranger (46 cards)

These decks had square-cut corners and did not include the "concentration" descriptor in spell durations.

The second wave of releases in 2015 included seven new add-on decks:

  • Arcane Archetypes (18 cards) [includes Warlock patron spells, Wizard tradition spells, and Sorcerer origin spells]
  • Cleric Domains (43 cards)
  • Druid Circles (21 cards)
  • Martial Powers & Races (41 cards) [includes battlemaster Fighter maneuvers, totem Barbarian abilities, Bard magical secrets, and subrace spell-like abilities]
  • Monk Traditions (19 cards)
  • Paladin Oaths (24 cards)
  • Elemental (45 cards) [includes 43 spells from the Elemental Evil Player's Companion supplement, plus replacement cards for the mislead and destructive wave spells omitted in the original 2014 printings of the Arcane and Paladin decks]

These decks (and the 2015 revised printings of the six 2014 decks) have round-cut corners, like those of traditional playing cards, and designate concentration spells with a diamond-shaped "C" icon in the duration field.

The 2017 revised decks (all with new cover art) consolidate some of the previous releases. The Arcane Archetypes deck is incorporated into the Arcane deck (now 253 cards); the bardic magical secret cards from the Martial Powers & Races deck are incorporated into the Bard deck (now 128 cards); the Cleric Domains deck is incorporated into the Cleric deck (now 149 cards); the Druid Circles deck is incorporated into the Druid deck (now 131 cards); the Martial Powers & Races deck is expanded to include the Monk Traditions deck and spell-like racial ability cards for new races from Volo's Guide to Monsters (total 61 cards); and the Paladin Oaths deck is incorporated into the Paladin deck (now 69 cards). The Ranger deck (46 cards) and Elemental deck (45 cards) are unchanged, and a new deck (95 cards) is added for the new spells found in Xanathar's Guide to Everything.
