Minor Arcana

Just like with real Tarot cards, the Minor Arcana come in four types: Cups, Coins, Wands, and Swords. Depending on which one you choose, you’ll receive different types of rewards:

  • Cups: Health or support buffs
  • Coins: Money
  • Wands: EXP
  • Swords: Skill Card

As you make your way further up the floors of Tartarus, these Minor Arcana will increase as well. You can tell how much of each reward you’ll receive by the amount of icons on the card. When deciding which to pick, think about what you need most.

If you’re low on yen, go for Coins. But if you’re looking to level up fast, choose Wands. I’d only go for Skill Cards that have rarer skills than usual, and choose Cups only if you truly need the health boost or buff.

Major Arcana

The Major Arcana are some of the best cards you can get in Shuffle Time. These will appear less often, but most commonly after defeating bosses in Monad Doors and Passages. You’ll unlock these special boss rooms once you make it to around level 90.

The Major Arcana cards you pick will stick around until you leave Tartarus. Once you get to the maximum amount of Major Arcana you can hold at one time you’ll achieve an Arcana Burst. This is a unique opportunity that’ll buff the rewards from Minor Arcana and offer you another set of Minor Arcana to choose from.

This is why you should prioritize picking Major Arcana if they appear during Shuffle Time. You won’t have all Major Arcana unlocked by the start of the game, unfortunately. As you progress through the main story, you’ll get more Major Arcana added to the Shuffle Time deck. Here are all the Major Arcana and what they offer:

Persona cards

The final type of cards you can find in Shuffle Time are Persona cards. If it’s a Persona that currently isn’t in your possession, you can keep it. But if it’s a Persona you already have, it’ll simply give all Personas you have with the same Arcana an EXP bonus.

If you have no room for more Personas you can still choose to take a Persona card and replace it with any of your current Personas. I’d recommend getting new Persona cards for fusion purposes.

Now that you know a lot more about Shuffle Time cards, do you know about all the Status Ailments you can be affected by in Tartarus?
