Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Spawns a random card.
  • Allows Isaac to carry two cards or runes at once. Cycle through cards by pressing the Control key (PC), R2 (PlayStation), RT (Xbox), or ZR (Switch, 3DS).
  • Replaces all pills with cards Removed in Repentanceexcept the pill dropped by 15►Caffeine Pill Caffeine Pill. Pills already on the ground will be converted to cards or runes upon picking up Starter Deck.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When picking up Starter Deck in a shop that has a pill for purchase, the pill can still be purchased and used. If the pill is dropped, it will be turned into a card.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Acid Baby Acid Baby: Spawns cards or runes instead of pills. Using cards or runes will not trigger the room-wide poisoning effect.
  • Removed in Repentance 15►Little Baggy Little Baggy: Overrides the effect of Little Baggy (switch from receiving only pills to only cards).
    • Added in Repentance Having both items allow both cards and pills to appear again.
    • Picking up Little Baggy while already holding Starter Deck will turn any held cards or runes into pills for one time.
  • 15►Mom's Bottle of Pills Mom's Bottle of Pills: Gives a card instead of a pill, essentially becoming equivalent to a 15►Deck of Cards Deck of Cards.
