4♦

You might notice that the cards in the far right column are slightly farther away. This may (correctly) lead you to believe that each end card is a function of the previous 4 cards. You may also notice that these 4 previous cards contain one of each suit.

If you arrange the first 4 cards in alphabetical order of suits (which is the order in which the title appears), you will get a 4-digit number. This is a puzzle ID number for a puzzle on perplexus. If you are viewing a puzzle, the address will be: http://perplexus.info/show.php?pid=____

If you replace the ____ with the ID number, you will find that the suit letter of the last card lies at the value's position in the problem text.

Here are the four puzzles:
4♣ 3♦ 3♥ 4♠: "The days [...]" 2♥
2♣ 7♦ 6♥ 9♠: "I'm thinking [...]" 4♥
1♣ 8♦ 4♥ 5♠: "A palindrome [...]" 7♦

2♣ 8♦ 6♥ 3♠: "Find the [...]" 4♦

So the answer is 4♦.

Title:
4♣ 5♦ A♥ A♠: "Here is [...]" 1♥, or A♥.
