This deck contains 253 cards: the 231 from the original D&D Spellbook Cards: Arcane and the 22 from D&D Spellbook Cards: Arcane Archetypes.
These Dungeons & Dragons Spellbook Cards are consolidated and repackaged. They in no way invalidate older printings of these cards, but they offer the same content in consistent packaging and more efficient purchases. Consult these decks when selecting new spells to learn, spells to prepare, and abilities for your character. Each deck is made from thick, laminated card, so they will stand the test of time and are safe to use with dry-erase markers. Spell and ability names and important info are easy to find for quick reference. Descriptive/mechanical text is written in full wherever possible. When it isnít, a rule book and page reference is given. Scaling spells have additional sections with details on how they improve. Card backs prominently display spell levels for easy sorting.
