General tips:

- The Guild Master's Ring is permanently unlocked for your deck upon completing the Angry Guild Master encounter. (Credit to JayD101 for reminding me to mention this)
- Avoid combat and seek out chance encounters (see suggested deck below).
- With the Shadow Agent fate the cards move slow enough that you can easily "track" a Success card, this ensures a successful conclusion to almost any chance encounter.
- Run the Jack of Scales story campaign. It is very quick, easy and (depending on your luck) has a chance approximately between 1/2 and 3/4 of encountering the relevant Shadow Agent card.
- For Shadow Agent 2, run the campaign with only 2 rings (including the Guild Master's Ring) and no artefacts in your Equipment deck. Add any encounter cards that provide gold or equipment as rewards, particularly The Lovers, which can provide two rings when selecting the option Demand payment for your assistence. The Guild Master's Ring can also be bought from the Travelling Tinker, and the Travelling Jeweller shops.
- If you have unlocked the Ring of Hindsight, locate the exit of the current floor as soon as possible, knowledge is power!
- If you have trouble picking a Success card in a Shadow Agent encounter, feel free to use the quit trick (before the current encounter is completed, you can quit the game using the Xbox One Dashboard, this prevents the game autosaving. Upon reloading the game, the game's progress is reset to immediately after the previous encounter).
- If these are the only tokens you're going for: forfeit as soon as the token is unlocked, also forfeit if the Shadow Agent card is not dealt in your current run.

Deck suggestions:

Encounter cards (32):
- "No combat" resource cards (24): Mister Lionel, The Maiden, Metal Ore, Holy Forge, Soul Gem, Twisted Canyon, Food Wagon, Helpful Priest, The Lovers, Stranger in the Shadows, Shop, Noble Trader, Desert of the Damned, Trading Post, Angry Guild Master, Loan, Treasure Chest, The Altar, Holy Patronage, The Tavern, Devil's Carnival, Tavern Wager, Maze of Traps, Sunken Treasure
- Quit-out cards (6): Hero's Remains, A Merchant's Favour, Secret Society, The Lonely Bard, The Cursed Treasure, The Elder Lizard
- Area information cards (2): Local Peasant, Wandering Minstrels

Equipment cards (3):
- Area information cards (2): Innocence, Oracle's Diadem
- "Lucky" cards (1): Clairvoyant Helm
And fill with your favourite weapons, armor and rings. (These don't matter that much with the above encounter cards, since you will rarely battle.)
