Excellent newly published deck, maybe not for everyone
on 19 July 2008
This deck is newly printed (Summer 2008) as a mass market deck: some initial problems with supply seem to have been experienced although in my opinion this shouldn't panic anyone into parting with more than the list price for this deck. Amazon have had supplies both in the UK and in the US although they seem to be coming in fairly small batches at the time of writing and seem to be selling fast.
The Deviant Moon is a highly imaginative and well thought out deck set in a strange world. Both Majors and Minors are fully illustrated and anyone familiar with the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition will find the deck readable straight out of the box. The LWB offers short descriptions and key words specific to the deck. The cards are full of rich detail and this makes for a good reading deck. Some people (not all) find the images in this deck very dark and I would recommend that anyone considering purchase goes to the deck's website beforehand to read more about the deck and to view some of the cards.
It is a great deck and deserves a place in your deck collection. I'm not sure I would recommend it as your only deck since some of the images could be disturbing to some..... but go and have a look at some more cards to decide for yourself.
