Wisepenny was great and I am a very happy Crowley Thoth Tarot new deck owner. I can't speak for all the 3rd party sellers out there, but don't expect to pay 20$ for a Crowley Deck from Weiser.
That being said, I am intuitive, I work magick with Demons, chaos currents and more. However, I was never a big fan of Tarot, and prefer mirror scrying or fire gazing, or ball gazing. And I have always found regular Tarot to be a bit... off for me. A bit... Complicated... a bit... stifling. There is an endless number of decks, all with muddled symbolism but really pretty artwork, or terrible artwork and more apparent symbolism. The various meanings of the cards are skewed depending on who makes the brand, and whose websites you read.
However, the Thoth deck is utterly fantastic for the intuitive who prefers to SCRY into the reading, not simply draw cards and read or memorize meanings from some website or the decks instructions.
The suit cards have the basic broad meaning in big bold letters, and the major arcana (trump) cards are pretty self-explanatory just from the name and imagery. Reading the manual shows several different collections of similar or the same meanings for each chard, and they can be used to enhance the reading if the card doesn't speak to you.
But most of the time, even if you never picked up this deck before, the cards meanings will be clear enough.
I have spent a week doing various readings and my confidence in this deck and my ability to read it has skyrocketed. Using similar methods to gazing or scrying, I work the cards and evoke various relevant forces, and draw my cards.
And so far these cards have not failed me, provided I not fail them.
Now, that isn't IMHO a sign the cards are magick, anyone who knows the occult knows the cards are just slips of paper or cardboard, that we use to give our psychic mind something to latch on to and work with via association. The fact that cards tend to come up exactly in the right way to inspire a psychic reading is mostly a factor decided by our subconscious ability to know when the cards are shuffled right to deploy a series of relevant cards.
Any power the cards have is the power you give them in ritual or by using them for long enough.
The artwork of these cards is great, I love the Art Deco style, and some of these cards are truly amazing (2 of disks AKA change for example, with the yin-yang elements as featured on the cover of the box, is probably my favorite looking card).
Bottom line, if you are an intuitive like I am, and you normally like to scry and gaze, and tarot often feels clunky or overly complex... or If you ever wish you could just stare at the cards like you do a mirror or ball, or scry bowl and get visions or ideas pop into your head based on the symbolism of the cards to inspire you??
This deck is for you.
The cards are about the same size and consistancy of normal playing cards. I like this better as I begin every reading with a good old fashioned card shuffle like a dealer at a poker table, then proceed to fine tune it with other methods.
So these respond well to normal card manipulation without excess wear from what I can see.
