Create a temporary review deck based on reverse version of previous notes

Just made a deck of 50 cards with optional reverse with the following fields:

keyword (front)
story with keyword inside (front)
kanji (back)
number in RtK book (back)
Hán Việt (back)

front (question) has 1st, 2nd field and back of cards (anwser) got 3rd, 4th, 5th field. Each cards is tagged with "rtk". Is there a way to create a new deck with all cards tagged "rtk" with the specific field order:

kanji (front)
Hán Việt (front)
keyword (back)
story with keyword inside (back)

just in case anyone wondering and for future reference, I'm making a deck for remembering the kanji book by Heisig.

    In order to have cards with a specific field order as different for others, you need to make a card type that contains those fields in that order, correct? (Or am I misunderstanding something about the question? If so, please post some examples.) So you can make a filtered deck and search by card type and tag, something like
    card:thisCardType tag:rtk, or, if you always want to study in this deck, search for that in the browser and then move the cards to a permanent deck using "change deck."

    And I'm sorry, but I don't understand your second post. What is a "note function?"

    I got that filtered tag deck generation by the manual.

    My question was quite confusing, thats why I wanted to edit it, sry. In short, I want to make use of those already etablished 50 cards but flip them so the kanji face is now front and the suggestion one is now back.
