Mom's dismembered leg is called down to deal 300 damage to anything it stomps. It will always stomp on the enemy with the most health. If used in an empty room or during the fight with Mom, it will stomp Isaac instead.
III - The Empress
May your rage bring power
Triggers the Whore of Babylon effect (+1.5 damage, +0.3 speed) for the current room, but without the need for Isaac to have a red heart or less of health.
Teleports Isaac to the Shop. If there is no Shop, this will act as a random teleport. If the Shop has not yet been accessed, this card will unlock the door without requiring a key (as long as the player exits through the main entrance).
Teleports Isaac to the Treasure Room. If there is no Treasure Room, this will act as a random teleport. Randomly chooses a Treasure Room on Curse of the Labyrinth. If the Treasure Room has not yet been accessed, this card will unlock the door without requiring a key (as long as the player exits through the main entrance).
XVIII - The Moon
May you find all you have lost
Teleports the player to the Secret Room. This card will open one random wall once inside the Secret Room, so you can leave even if you don't have any bombs available.
XIX - The Sun
May the light heal and enlighten you
Restores Isaac's full health, deals 100 damage to all enemies in the room, and reveals the map for the current floor, except the Super Secret Room.
Clones all pickups and chests in a room (including Shop pickups; the clones can then be picked up for free). Cloned chests will contain exactly the same type of items: if the original contains a pickup, so will the clone; the same is true for collectibles. Cannot clone other Jera runes and trinkets.
Deals 40 damage to all enemies in the room. Consumes all pickups in the room and turns them into Blue Flies and Spiders. Consumes all pedestal items in the room and turns them into random stat upgrades. No effect on shop items.
Using the Blank Card with the ? Card teleports the player to the I AM ERROR room of the current floor. This consumes both the Blank Card and the ? Card.
The Empress card's effect can be stacked with multiple uses of the same card (including uses by Blank Card), and also stacks with the Whore of Babylon.
The damage bonus is the number of uses squared, e.g. +1.5 * 4 * 4 damage for using the card via a Blank Card, with Tarot Cloth and Car Battery equipped.
The Devil card's effect does not stack with multiple uses, nor does it stack with The Book of Belial. It also does not increase the chance of a Devil or Angel Room appearing when used like with the Book of Belial.
After unlocking It Lives, Devil or Angel Rooms in The Womb II, Utero II, and Scarred Womb II no longer contain trapdoors and instead have their normal contents.
Using The Joker card can allow Isaac to encounter Devil Rooms or Angel Rooms on floors they otherwise cannot appear on.
If you use the Strength card with only Soul, Black, or Bone Hearts left, and lose the non-Red Hearts while in the same room, you retain the full Red Heart container that Strength grants after you leave.
The damage dealt by the foot summoned by The High Priestess counts as explosion damage. Meaning it will not damage the player when possessing Host Hat or Pyromaniac. It can also be effectively used as a bomb without taking damage with a timely dodge to blow up rocks or enter Secret Rooms.
The Ace cards will also turn opened chests, which would normally disappear after leaving a room, into consumables.
Using the Strength card as ??? will give you a permanent Soul Heart instead of a temporary one. When Keeper has only one Coin Heart, he can use the Strength card to gain a second one which is also permanent.
While Curse of the Maze is active, The Fool, Moon, Hermit, and Stars cards may fail and leave the player in a different room than intended. The Joker card still works normally.
Using the Temperance card can, in rare cases, spawn the Blood Donation Machine directly on the player, forcing them to use it once. Caution should be taken when using Temperance as The Lost (or when on half a heart of health), as this will instantly kill the player regardless of the Holy Mantle.
The Hagalaz rune will open a Secret Room, but only if it is in the bend of a L-shaped large room.
All teleportation cards except The Fool are unavailable in Greed Mode.
The runes and their names ingame are based on the Elder Futhark alphabet system and its reconstructed Proto-Germanic names. In popular culture, runes often signify that something is in some way magical.
The Suicide King card is a nickname for the King of Hearts, referred to as such because its artwork depicts a king who seems to be sticking a sword into his own head.
The Get out of Jail Free card is a reference to a card with the same name that appears in the table game Monopoly.
The "A Card Against Humanity" card is a reference to the card game "Cards Against Humanity".
Ancient Recall, Era Walk, Huge Growth, and Chaos Card are all based on cards from Magic: The Gathering.
The Chaos Card is a reference to the card "Chaos Orb", which also instantly destroys enemies that it touches.
The "Ancient Recall" card is a reference to the card "Ancestral Recall", which also draws three cards.
The "Era Walk" card is a reference to the card "Time Walk", which allows players to take an extra turn.
The "Huge Growth" card is a reference to the card "Giant Growth", which buffs creatures summoned in the game.
