A player's Fate deck is the deck of 15 cards that sits to the right of their Board, colored white. They are not played by that Villain, but by other player's taking a Fate action against them. Each Villain's Fate deck is different, customized for their Board and win condition, and part of learning to play a Villain is learning the cards in their Fate deck. There are typically 1, 2 or 3 copies of each card in a Fate deck.
When Fate cards are discarded, they are put into the Fate discard pile. When there are not enough cards in a player's Fate deck to do something (finding, revealing, or looking at cards), the Fate discard pile is shuffled to form a new Fate deck.
