Keep in mind, IT'S EVERY SINGLE CARD, not one from a bad unboxing, but every single card has a cut in the same place which totally takes away from actually using them.
Amazon will be sending a replacement, and now I have to drive all the way to a UPS store to send it back, it also stated return by the third when that's the same day I filed for a replacement; very confusing, as the scan code is good for 30 days. I'll try tommorow, as I can't make it today.
Major, major hassle when I pay premium for Prime service to be forced to run around.
Otherwise the cards are excellent, Lovecraft based most of his lore off of Mesopotamian legend, The Enûma Eliš was mankind's First known creation myth and predates even the Gilgamesh, in fact, the Gilgamesh, the Bible, and almost every myth on earth finds some origin tracing back to it. In which god was a Dragon called Tiamat, before the conception of duality, Marduk was the devil in oral tradition, and Tiamat; the sleeping Dragon who's name means Life Mother, was the All and Nothing, symbolizing primal chaos devoid of construct, being interwoven in everything.
Tiamat's children; Kilulu, Kingu, and many others, are reshaped and renamed in Lovecraft's work for a horror story.
But one who is well versed in anthropology and the occult will know they're simply allegories/egragores for the first original myth.
As a reverse path Mesopotamian Shaman this deck speaks to me, I love notes of chaos, the ocean, antinomianism, and forced self interpretation vs using the book it came with.
This deck is powerful, though many will pass it off as a toy, or be too enshrouded by Lovecraft's Fictional retelling to gain use of its full potential.
I highly recommend this deck along side Mason's Gramore of Tiamat.
The Gramore of Tiamat is a modern reinvention of Mesopotamian Occultism; arguably the origin of all forms of magic and ritual.
Though the Gilgamesh is just a off shoot of the Enûma Eliš, I did like that they had Ishtar; I call her inanna, and other names of gods; that those in the know will see through and know the origin of.
The best deck out there for Mesopotamian Occult path-working.
I'll be eagerly awaiting a replacement, and will now need to jump through hoops to get a deck untainted by defects, it will be worth it though.
Even still, two stars for the horrible Amazon service and damaged goods.
The artwork is nice and it is a nice twist to the conventional decks most people have. I will take them for a test spin this Halloween.
I always have this deck with me, and although I don't feel like it could replace a more traditional deck, it's definitely a great addition to any fan of the Lovecraftian lore.
