The definitive tarot deck 10/10,
This review is from: The Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck (Cards)
There never has been and there never will be a deck as good as this! I feel that the artist channelled these and they contain all the magic and answers you will ever need to learn tarot. I always teach people using these cards. love them or hate them they are the definitive tarot.I also use the Morgan Greer and if you are into numerology the Thoth is for you BUT there is only one Rider and it has been around so long for a very good reason, it is special!I taught Jane Goldman the tarot in her series Jane Goldman investigates and she got it straight away. I also use them in my dvd Tarot made easy.

Very strong opinions, but I wonder how many other decks you've used? In my opinion it is far from definitive; there were better earlier decks (not many though) and much better since (many).
Learning the court card meanings from this deck must stretch your teaching, because for me they're not at all as intuitive as most other modern decks.
Why it's been around for so long is partly through important exposure and recently through good marketing. I respect your experience with this deck, but I could never describe it as the best.
