Gypsy Queen Tarot of the Diamond Insert Set Needs List

I recently finished catching up on the final season of Halt and Catch Fire, the great AMC show about the growth of the computer industry and the early days of the internet.  and there is a scene in season four when Lee Pace's character Joe MacMillan visits a tarot card reader and gets a reading.

The sequence reminded me of some tarot card inserts from the recent Gypsy Queen sets. Although Gypsy Queen has been around since 2011 (can you believe that?), the Tarot of the Diamond cards were first included in the 2018 set. I like them because of the details of the design, especially the backs. I also enjoy the rounded corners of these cards. These are fairly rare inserts at 1:8 in hobby packs and 1:9 in retail.

I know next to nothing about tarot cards so I assume there is some things about the cards that I'm missing. For example, on Wayne Buehler's card he is called the King of Wands which his a reference to a tarot card and as I build the sets I'll get a tarot card set and take a look at some cards and what the deeper meaning is.

Also, for your checklist purists out there, Topps went with numbered cards in 2018 and 2020 but all letters in 2019. So it's hard to tell but there are 40 cards in 2019 and 22 in both 2018 and 2020.
