Beautiful deck and I love working with it.
Marsha Hostetler
Another friend and I --who have used many tarot decks-did a reading and looked up the card meanings, to see what the book would say.

The companion book for the Wizards Tarot is great and is a must have if you get this deck.

I pre-ordered The Wizards Tarot back in December 2010 with great anticipation, this deck does not disappoint. The Wizard Tarot is the intellectual creation of respected tarot author Corrine Kenner and is manifested by artist John J. Blumen.

The Wizard Tarot is a magic themed tarot deck where witchcraft and wizardry is the focus of the deck. Set in the mythical world of Mandrake Academy a magical school where you are a new student learning the ways of magic. Each of the Major Arcana cards is your new professors, teaching each their own magic subject. The Minor Arcana are fellow students. Each of the four suits represents four schools of magic. Which are, fire magic, water magic, air magic and earth magic. The Court cards are renamed as the Royal Families. Each Royal Family depicts elemental creatures associated with the suit.

The design of the deck is great, the backs have this nice golden like swirls, lines and stars that is unique. My only problem is they are not reversible so if you use reversals you will know which cards are reversed. The pattern on the back carries over into the boards around the card images which is really nice and ties the whole deck in nicely. The titles are spelled out in a clear font that is not overpowering or distracting. They are written on golden banners at the bottom. All cards are spelled out and are not numbered. Reordering the deck might be a hassle if you have a forgetful memory and forget the order of the Majors.

I was very skeptical about this tarot deck when it first came out because of it's obvious "Harry Potter" looking theme. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how detailed and beautiful the art work was. I've just started slowly working with the deck and recently began reading the accompanying book. There is a lot of good information so far on the colors/planetary associations, Hebrew letters and their meanings along with thorough explanations on the meaning and symbolism in great detail. I really wanted to give this deck a 5 star rating however, I have already found some serious errors of information in the book that while may appear to be simple, are in fact large mistakes especially in light of their basic knowledge. For example, in the book it is explained that the wheat growing in the card symbolizes Persephone and says that she is the mother goddess who makes the earth barren when her daughter goes missing. Perhaps this is a typo, I sure hope it is. Most any Witch knows from basic study that Persephone is the daughter that is taken by Hades and it is Demeter who is the Mother Goddess who makes the earth barren. I still haven't read the entire book but now I'm concerned about other possible errors throughout. As for myself, I have taken pen to the book and made corrections where needed. The deck is gorgeous but be careful when reading the book for basic, but large mistakes.

With hundreds of decks in my collection, I'm someone who really appreciates any attempt to do something fresh and heretofore unseen in tarot. And the Wizards Tarot by Corrine Kenner, with illustrations by John J. Blumen, doesn't disappoint.

Set in the Harry Potteresque world of Mandrake Academy, the Wizard's Tarot is all about magick. Blumen's skilled illustrations create a unique world of scholarship, mysticism and fantasy. Although the images are based on RWS symbolism, nearly all of the 78 cards incorporate some new element to freshen up the traditional imagery, while still maintaining the familiarity of tarot's master deck. Many of the cards go even further, presenting a new and unexpected approach to traditional symbolism.

Corrine Kenner, one of the tarot world's most popular authorities, has created a book packed with information and tools for unraveling the mysteries of the tarot and uncovering the magic within. In addition to delivering each card's meaning, the book also reveals the magical application of each of the major arcana and fully illustrated pip cards, with each of the court cards introducing us to characters from the fantasy world that contains Mandrake Academy. As an added bonus, each of the major arcana cards comes with its own unique spread to help you further absorb the meaning and intent of these major life lessons.

As a tarot collector, I have many decks I look at once and then relegate to "collection status" (meaning I may never look at them again).

The "Wizards Tarot" brings together a lifetime of wisdom from two separate individuals that melds together into one perfect form. Corrine Kenner brings her knowledge of the Tarot and metaphysical subjects (with the ability to allow Seekers to actually place the esoteric world to good use in their lives). The concept for this deck is Corrine's, as was the choice of symbols for the cards. John Blumen has an eclectic portfolio that includes industrial design, children's books and fantasy art. His magic wand brought the concept for this deck to life.

In the accompanying Handbook (companion book) the very first line of the introduction takes the Seeker directly into the world of the "Wizards Tarot". How does it do this? By introducing us to the Mandrake Acadamy, Here the Seeker is the student, and the Tarot is the teacher. Modern professors inhabit the rolling plains of the academy, bringing the ancient arts of witchcraft and wizardry to a new generation of students.

The professors take the form of the Major Arcana cards, leading their students through a series of twenty-one lessons in basic magic. In the Minro Arcana the student meets other students, young magicians honing their craft. The four suits illustrate the four schools of magic - Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

I love the concept of an animal familiar, and everyone at the Mandrake Academy (student and teacher) has one. In the Court cards the student will find the elemental beings that guard the school: Salamanders (Fire), Undines (Water), Sylphs (Air) and Gnomes (Earth). Kenner notes that the student needs to remember to be respectful, as the elemental creatures are unpredictable.
