For the storytelling aspect, I like the individual monster cards to signify specific types of monsters. Based on raw tarot/hermetic symbolism, I came up with this scheme for the small swords cards:

2 - skeleton
3 - rats
4 - ogre
5 - basilisk
6 - giant spider
7 - wyvern
8 - serpent men
9 - hell hounds
10 - Minotaur (ruler of the labyrinth!)

Of course, the deck one uses may suggest certain monsters with the art. I've been playing with the miniature Luis Royo Dark Tarot, which I like for both the images and the small footprint. Its art suggests to me the following crew of monsters:

2 - rogue
3 - zombie
4 - troll
5 - wraith
6 - vampire
7 - banshees
8 - mind parasite
9 - angel of darkness
10 - angel of death
