What to call a 22-card Major-Arcana-only mini-deck?



  • I have an artist friend who would like to create a new Tarot deck, starting with lush new illutrations for the Major Arcana cards, and is considering selling sets of only the 22 Major Arcana cards before completing the rest of full deck.

    Is there a commonly accepted name for a 22-card Major-Arcana-only Tarot deck? Short deck? Mini deck? Arcana deck? Something else? Or is such a deck considered incomplete, a curiosity only for collectors, not useful for readers?



  • Sound like it would be a good collection item but yes need a whole deck I feel
