I have a deck of cards that has runes on the Major Arcana.  I'm pretty new
to all this stuff, and I bought the deck because I liked the way it looked,
so I couldn't tell you if it's accurate in placing the runes on the cards.
This is how it goes:
The Fool: Wynn
Magician: Peoh
High Priestess: Ur
Empress: Thorn
Emperor: Ansuz
Hierophant: Radh
Lovers: Ken
Chariot: Hagall
Strength: Sigil
Hermit: Is
Wheel of Fortune: Ger
Justice: Nyd
Hanged Man: Tyr/Tewaz
Death: Ba/Beorc
Alchemy: Laguz
Devil: Eolh
Tower: Yr/Irr
Star: Eh
Moon: Othal
Sun: Gebo
Aeon: Peorth
Universe: Gebo

This is the Haindl deck, and the Major Arcana are different than others, so
I don't know if it'll help a lot.
