@Mohabad Osman Trello has intentionally make it difficult to delete cards because you cannot recover the deleted cards. As a developer, I do a lot deletion to clean out my test board via a simple sample code based on py-trello

for col in board.list_lists():
if == 'Template' or == 'Trigger Card':
for card in col.list_cards():
for card in col.list_cards():
if == '---' or '(DnD)' in

 The challenge is how you are going to execute this with a board button on archived list. You probably need to use Butler Http Request to execute this at an endpoint. Even if you use the technique in my post A Powerful Combination

you will find that archived list does not show up for you when creating a board variable. Therefore more logic to add to the above sample code.

@Mohabad Osman I use youtube to show some demos but would not say I am a 'youtuber'. I have nothing recorded specifically for deleting cards. Above sample is from Superhero Checklist script which I recorded a video today.

It uses the technique described in "A Powerful Combination" post.
