I got the Robin Wood first and was soooo disappointed. Everyone is super happy, dimpled and "too" pretty. The colours seem just washed out and weak, and some of the cards look downright silly and cheesy.7 of Wands spring to mind. The Wheel of Fortune is the worst I have seen in any deck, it's so bad it is hard to look at. I had high hopes, but when I got it in my hands, wow what a let down.
Then I got the Morgan-Greer. WOW. From the minute I took it out I was in love and enraptured. The saturated colours, no borders and unusual classic artwork drew me into what seems a world of it's very own. When I take out this deck (just like Tarot of the Old Path) it is as if I am entering and being enveloped in a different world. The pictures seem simple, yet there is so much going on, much symbolism to find hidden. Laying the cards out side by side is powerful. A story naturally unfolds and blends one into another. And one thing I discovered a few days ago was how different the cards look in darker light. The use of colours and richness of them have a unique power in this deck, very mystical.
I myself was worried that the star backs which recieve so many complaints were going to be a drawback, but upon seeing them I loved those as well. Random hand-drawn stars are much more enticing than just perfect ones. The only thing I can think of to improve the deck would be a different darker colour for the back. A rich purple or forest green.
These cards must be seen in person too get the full impact of the deep, evocative colours and intense gorgeous artwork. This deck has been around 28 years for a reason....it's a classic that speaks to the inner, quiet center of a person and captures you in it's magic.
Some readers may complain that this deck looks "ugly", but they should re-evaluate it in the right context. not only does the Morgan-Greer capture the epoch of the 70s era succinctly, but also, its color schemes conform to a carefully-thought-out, esoteric plan. It is a nicely-executed memoir of a bygone Golden Era.
The cards' quality is very good. They shuffle well and they are very durable. The cards are printed on good quality materials that enhance the power of the artwork. If you a looking for a good quality and powerful tarot deck with all the traditional tarot symbolism in place, you will most certainly enjoy this deck!
Truly one of a kind. Most tarot decks have blaise borders and pale colors. Not this one. Each picture is artfully done. On top of that the picture dominates the entire card, there is no border, so the card really stands out.
The only negative is the plain blue with white stars back. With such a beautiful face the backing is somewhat of a dissappointment.
Upon first opening it, I had that immediate connection I had always felt was missing from the previous decks. I feel that you have to like everything about a deck, including the back of the cards, to make that connection and have more truthful readings. The Tartan backing on the Rider Wait, as an example, makes it difficult for me to use. However, I feel as if I need the actual cards to get the meanings properly. This deck is a clone of the Rider, but it's gorgeous and combines the Rider Wait with better illustrations and a funner background Lush, vibrant colors, and a much more personal feel with the close up of the people that populate the cards.
Side note: I don't believe in any mystical qualities of Tarot. I do it soley for two reasons: entertainment for my friends over my "innate abilities", and for insight to issues in my life that I wouldn't normally come to.
In any event, this is probably the best deck I've currently got in my collection. It can be in yours too!
