It's an absolutely beautiful deck. It's dark and mysterious, which is what I was looking for. The fact that the title of the cards are also in Spanish is a major plus :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
There is only two things that I can see wrong with it (or rather what others might have an issue with). Number one being that the numbered Minor Arcade cards do not have individual "paintings". They're just like regular playing cards in that they just show the object the number of times it's representing (for instance: six masks for card six). Bringing me to number two, the Minor Arcade is not made up of the traditional four suits: Cups, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles. It is instead made up of Masks, Butterflies, Crosses, and Roses. The little handbook the deck is accompanied with does not say if there is a link between the two different deck suits. It does however say what each card in the traditional suits are supposed to mean.
If you wish to have a traditional deck because the symbols/suits are very important to you, I would not recommend this deck. If you simply don't care and plan on assigning your own meanings, this might actually be an amazing deck for you. Or you could do what I did and just have them mean the same thing anyways. For instance I have the Butterflies mean the same thing as the Wands, and so forth (to me they both represent Air).
I do love this deck regardless :) I hope this helps anyone.
