I went with #3, but I wouldn't say that decks contain 'energy'. Rather, decks contain artistic visions.

Decks do have personalities, even at their most generic; the Noblet Marseilles deck has a different feel from the Conver. They are not fungible. There are peaceful and calm decks, like RWS or the Gumppenberg Ancient Tarot of Lombardy. There are decks that seem wild and borderline crazy, like the Thoth or the Tarot de Paris.

I don't see the deck's personality as being some kind of energy stored in the cards. I see it as something that flows from the imagery itself.
