Brought these today from mind,body and spirit fair.
They are a stunning,incredible deck.The images seem to have a life of there own,the artwork is very vivid and detailed.Looking at the cards almost makes you feel the Gods are actually with you-comforting but alittle unnerving too!
Some of the Gods include:Green man,Cernunnos,Dionysus,Eros,Ganasha,Hades,Anubis,Ares,Set,Thoth,Vulcan and Zeus amongst others.
The book to go with the cards is very indepth giving spreads to try,a rite to dedicate your cards,meanings of all the cards including info on each God and finally giving rituals to work with their energy.
So many Goddess card sets exist (which I think is great)but the Gods are often left out,so I'm very pleased to see these.They are suitable for both men and woman to work with.
If you get the chance to buy these do so,you won't regret it :)

I got these last week at a mind, body & spirit fair and they're just gorgeous! It's so refreshing to see a masculine oracle deck. There are 36 cards and a detailed guidebook. The book is lovely with 2-3 pages for each God and an illustration in black & white. There's a dedication for your cards and a selection of suggested spreads for you to use, along with a poem at the front of the book. Each God has a quick description, and meaning, and then a more detailed story. There's a light side meaning, and a shadow side meaning, along with an invocation for each God. The art work is simply stunning - the colours are very rich and there's a gilded effect on the front and back of each card which is very effective. Lovely deck. The only downside is the card stock is a little thinner than my Doreen Virtue decks, but this is not really an issue. The cards are very large!
