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.)

Original 2014 decks

This release includes 658 spell cards divided into 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 cards have square-cut corners and do not distinguish concentration and non-concentration spells.

Revised 2015 decks

This release includes revised "Version 2" printings of the original six decks, as above, plus seven new add-on decks, making for a total of 869 spell cards:

  • 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]

All of the 2015 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.

Revised 2017 "Version 3" decks

These decks (all with new cover art) include 932 spell cards in eight decks, consolidating some of the 2015 releases:

  • Arcane (253 cards) [includes warlock, wizard, and sorcerer spells, warlock patron spells, wizard tradition spells, and sorcerer origin spells]
  • Bard (128 cards) [includes bardic magical secrets]
  • Cleric (149 cards) [includes domain spells]
  • Druid (131 cards) [includes druid circle spells]
  • Martial Powers & Races (61 cards) [includes totem barbarian abilities, bard magical secrets, battlemaster fighter maneuvers, monk tradition spells, and subrace spell-like abilities including those for new races from Volo's Guide to Monsters)
  • Paladin (69 cards) [includes oath spells]
  • Ranger (46 cards)
  • Xanathar's Guide to Everything (95 cards) [includes Elemental Evil Player's Companion spells]

These decks have round-cut corners and concentration icons, just like the 2015 editions.
