You can prepare Cards equal to your Intelligence modifier during a short rest, and you can prepare up to 10 cards during a long rest. You can have up to 6 Cards prepared at a time. Each Card contains a spell of 1st level, and they can only be used once. You do not gain the ability to use cantrips until 17th level, and you can only cast spells at their minimum level. You can only prepare Wizard spells in this way.
