All Major Arcana Cards & Buffs in Destiny 2 Season of the Witch

The tarot-style Deck of Whispers includes 12 Major Arcana cards in Destiny 2 Season of the Witch. 

This is new way of receiving buffs in the Savathun’s Spire and Altars of Summoning activities, and your deck is a core part of this season. The deck must have at least five Major Arcana cards in order to draw one before an encounter, giving you and your allies a buff. 

When your deck randomly selects a card, only the name of the card displays at the bottom left of the screen, and the image of the card sits above the podium. For now, the drawn card doesn’t say what it does, leaving you and your allies in the dark about what buff you received. It’ll take time to familiarize yourself with all of the cards, so here’s a list of all the Major Arcana cards in Destiny 2 and what they do.

To get these Major Arcana cards, you need to collect Opaque Cards from seasonal activities and complete The Bladed Path seasonal quest. Starting from Step 7 in The Bladed Path quest, players can get elemental Major Arcana cards too, and we have a guide on how to do that

You can add and remove cards from your Deck of Whispers at the Athenaeum — which you can get to from the HELM. Here, you can read the buff descriptions under each card.

There's a lot to do in Season of the Witch, so here are more guides on how to get the Ex Diris Exotic weapon and the Monte Carlo catalyst, all new Exotic armor, rewards in the Exotic Mission Rotator, the Season of the Witch Title, the newest Strand Aspects, and all secret chest locations.
