Decks I Have & Want

Writing this page, I can’t help but hear Hannibal Lecter’s voice in my ear: “He covets. That is his nature.”

Caught me.

But I, unlike Buffalo Bill, am not a murderous pit-digging sort of covetous individual. I covet Tarot decks, and somehow I think that no matter how many I manage to accrue over my lifetime, I’ll never have enough. Below is a (woefully short) list of the decks currently in my possession, along with a working and ever-changing list of a dozen or so decks that I would like to make my next purchases. I had to keep the latter list short, because simply writing “I WANT EVERYTHING” really isn’t helpful, and this way I have something to refer to on those rare occasions (i.e. Christmas and my birthday) when I can justify the expense of buying a new deck.

  1. After looking at your list, you have introduced me to The Dark Fairytale Tarot. Usually not a fan of the CG-heavy decks, but this one is great. And it seems as if a lot of people are fans of the Shadowscapes (I own that one too).

    1. The Dark Fairytale Tarot is a beautiful deck! I really can’t wait for Christmas so that I have an excuse to lay my hands on it.
      As for Shadowscapes, it’s slowly growing on me. When I first got it, I was a bit disappointed–the deck itself is stunning, but for some reason I just didn’t love it. But the more I work with it, the more I’m coming to like it, and I’ve found that other people really love when I use this deck in readings for them.

      1. I totally agree with you on getting Shadowscapes to work. At first, it really didn’t want to “talk”. So, it got dismissed as one of those that will only be used for more fantastical readings. Well, during a deck interview, I got scolded majorly. There is so much to look at in the cards starting out makes it difficult.
        And totally with you when other people love it. My friends love staring at the pictures.

  2. What an awesome idea to post your collection on the blog!
    About Shadowscapes – wow, when I unboxed it, I fell immediatey in love… But the readings! I literally felt the Queen of Swords stabbing me with calla lilies.

    But I still really like reading with it. It is a tad cold and aloof, kind of like the pretty girl at the prom. She knows she’s popular, she knows she’s pretty, you gotta work for her attention!

    Prisma Visions is on my list also… Should get it for Christmas, honestly I am counting the seconds!
