Now I took a star off because the card stock is not up to par for how I like them. It is thin, though not as thin as the linesrider deck but definitely thinner than the rider-waite tarot deck or the Santa Muerte deck. It just feels cheaper than what I’m used to.
I haven't used them for a reading yet as I just got them today but I will update on how that goes.
As for the deck itself, I have always immensely enjoyed the art work. The artist managed to retain all of the classic symbols and characteristics of a tarot deck while updating the imagery and giving it a Day of the Dead flair. For example, my favorite card is XIII; this is typically the Death card (usually meaning "positive change" in a reading), but here it is actually a woman giving birth. The Hierophant sits on a lawn chair wearing a Hawaiian shirt, surrounded by a bowling ball, lawn flamingos, and other paraphernalia of suburban life.
I highly recommend this deck for those interested in tarot or Day of the Dead art.
