Hey guys,
So I recently joined my school's Memory Team. Basically, we train to be able to do stuff like remember a lot of numbers, decks of cards, names/faces, etc. The main unifying trick for remembering stuff is visualizing. For example, numbers are remembered by associating letters to digits, then forming words, then forming images of those words in a familiar place in your head (I imagine my room).
The recommended method for memorizing decks of cards is to associate a static image with each of the 52 cards. You guys can see where this is going . Do you guys have any suggestions? Here's what I thought up so far, but maybe you guys can think of something more intuitive:
Each number is part of a class, and best to worst in each class is Spades, Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds (best suit to worst suit for most card games)
2=queue dodge tier heroes like Eve... idk who else (Teemo Mundo Tryn?)
3=Mages (3 is like a sideways M)
4-9=not sure, maybe off-tanks, and non-top tier heroes
10=best farming heroes?
Jacks=Top 4 support Heroes
Queens=Top 4 Female Heroes
Kings=Top 4 Tanks
Aces=Top 4 Carries

Any suggestions would be great . Perhaps it would be better to have each SUIT be a class (so like Spades=Carry/Nuke/DPS, Hearts=Tanks, etc.) and smallest to biggest represents bottom to top tier?

tl;dr I want to associate a hero with each card (52 cards, 1-13, 4 suits) in a way that intuitively makes sense
