I have a 3D Scene in Nuke with several cards behind each other in 3d space. Is there a way to multiply them on top of each other? Like with layer blending modes in After Effects but still keeping it a NUKE 3D scene?

    I don't think it's possible without doing a 2D merge on two rendered elements

It is not possible to use blending modes in a 3D scene. What can be done though, is to use several scenes or 3D objects with a scan line renderer and a cam. Each of those are merged with the blending mode of choice after the scan line renderer in 2d.

    Yup that will work. But fair warning it can get slow really quickly if you have to do this a lot.
