From what I understand, when you archive a card, it still exists on the board - it's just in a sort of "hidden" list. So I don't think archiving your cards will resolve the slowness issue. What I suggest is moving the cards to a separate board - you could call that board "Archives". 

Butler could help, but it might be as simple as just selecting the ellipses on a "done" list and just moving it to your archive baord. Moving forward, you could create a schedule command that says something like "every month, move all cards in the done list to the archive board".

Here's an example of how you could create the butler command to keep your board clean moving forward:

I din't realise this was related to Trello not JIra
