One of Aeclectic Tarot's Top Ten Decks for 2007!
"The Mystic Faerie Tarot really hits the mark: beautiful, fun, and a solid magickal tool. Highly recommended."―newWitch
"For those that enjoy opening themselves to the faerie world, this book and deck are a joy."―Aeclectic.net (Bonnie Cehovet)
"It is whimsical yet powerful, charming yet truthful, simple yet deeply symbolic and meaningful. The artwork is brilliant, and the deck would be great for first-time readers, children, or those slightly nervous of Tarot. It also shakes the advanced reader from their bad habits and allows them to explore something a little different, just be taking a stroll through the summerlit faerie garden..."―Aeclectic.net (Kim Huggens)
"This beautiful gold-rimmed deck looks as if it was discovered in a moss-covered fairy chest. The artwork is intoxicating; even for non-Tarot readers, as is evidenced by my wife's wanting to frame some of the cards."―Reflections Tarot
"The cards in this deck are delightful...The deck is as well organized as it is gorgeous to look at...Moore provides insightful step-by-step instructions on conducting effective readings."―Illumination Tarot
"Wow, this deck is completely mesmerizing. As soon as I opened the deck I felt like I had walked right into the Faerie Kingdom, so magical, beautiful and steeped with mystery and insight."―Mystic Living Today

I think this deck did that beautifully. It's one of the most positive decks I've found thanks to the guide book. It still keeps to the traditional means of the cards but often ends on a message of hope.
The art is beautiful and unique. Like the cups featuring fairy mermaid hybrids.
All and all I'd highly recommend. I think my go to deck for readings and gift givings would still be Everyday Witch but for fairy lovers or younger folk looking to get into Tarot I definitely recommend this gift.
I am giving it a few stars because I have used a friends set and love it.
--It comes as a great box set with the book and cards in a box, very nice for a gift
--Easy-to-handle, good quality cards
--The book has stories which make learning the cards interesting and fun
--For someone new to Tarot, the book provides little guidance
--The cards themselves do not offer cues or prompts clearly
--No card box (there is a box that can be folded out of the packaging, but it is too large for the cards and plain white)
Overall, these are absolutely beautiful cards, and I am very happy with the purchase. I feel like this set has not offered me a strong foundation with card interpretation, and the cards themselves do not offer great cues. I ended up purchasing a separate book with Tarot card interpretation (Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis) and history which, in combination with the cards from this set, are working beautifully.
I feel like this would be the perfect set for a young girl interested in Tarot as the cards based on the art and the stories in the book . In addition, cards such as "Death" and "The Devil" are not intimidating for the younger audience. This strikes me as the perfect gift for a whimsical young teenage girl! I can also see this as a great set for someone with in-depth experience reading Tarot who feels comfortable with the meanings of the cards already. The art is so beautiful that it would be a lovely addition to any Tarot card collector or enthusiast.
The artwork is without a doubt the highlight of this deck! Anyone with a whimsical side will appreciate this deck!

Update (Oct 1st): I've been shuffling this deck a lot and there has been no fraying or other damage from use. I really like this deck.
Now; don't get me wrong; this is still a very lovely Deck. It comes with a lovely glossy and substantial book of Interpretations, scans of every Card, advice, and quite a few different and unusual Spreads which I do like - but it's the actual Cards themselves I have a problem with...
Basically; these Cards look delightful if you look at them one by one, but laid out in Spreads - they almost all look alike (at a glance) they're SO delicately done, that at times there appears simply no difference or colour in each, which makes them difficult to read or seem significant... This is such a shame, because the quality is nice, and as I say; the book is excellent. It's a Deck I'd probably have been pleased to own had it been perhaps given to me as a gift, but if I had my time to go over again, I perhaps would not have purchased it myself...
This is my playful fae deck I always say. I
If that's not enough for you, then try the exceptionally amazing book that goes with them.The whole book is a delight to hold and read.
I was instantly enchanted with them when they arrived. I am sure they would be suitable for anyone with an interest in Fae, magic, fantasy, nature, art, gentleness, a desire to heal the world etc....
They are loosely based on the rider waite system, but with all the harshness removed.
The meanings are a little different from Rws, and as some of the reviews suggest, they may take a little getting used to. I don't care how long it takes me to get used to them, they are all, each and everyone of them adorable.
I was looking for a tarot that was magical, gentle and easy to interpret, well After 20 odd years I have finally found it.
I give this deck 7 stars!
Thank you for the creation of them.
