In My Own Words:
Hi, my name's Matt but my friends call me Dean or Dean-O. I was named after Dean Martin's spy character 'Matt Helm' from the 1960's movie series (The Wrecking Crew, The Ambushers, Murderer's Row, and The Silencers).

I live in Arizona. I'm married to a lovely woman, have great kids, and have been a professional tarot reader for over 15 years. I'm also what's known as a serious collector of taro… Read more

This is another deck I ordered when it first came out. Like many decks I purchase, I was drawn to the artwork. In this area, the deck does not disappoint. The cards have wonderful color and are lavishly illustrated but not to the point of being too much. They remind me quite a bit of upscale comic book art. This is what I like to call a unisex deck; one that would appeal to either gender.
The cards themselves are slightly firm and laminated a bit too lightly for my taste. I don't think they could handle any moisture, like from a client who has sweaty palms for example. This reason alone is why I won't read with it and personally consider it to be a collectable deck only (You may feel… Read more

I ordered this when it first came out and have used it off and on since. This deck does not come with an accompanying book, just a small fold out flyer. This is the reason why I couldn't give it a 5 star rating. A deck like this really does need a thorough book to go with it. The flyer doesn't due the deck justice by not going into much detail in the divinatory meanings, just a word or two, so I think this would be very confusing for someone new to tarot. I'm a professional tarot reader by trade and I would've enjoyed reading more about the symbolism used in the cards.
The cards are slightly firm and have a nice slick lamination which makes them easy to shuffle. The artwork is amazing… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Like A Best Friend, May 11 2004
I love dragons so this was like meeting up with a best friend I hadn't seen in ages. When I opened the package, my eyes were filled with soft, yet very evocative images. While I may call them soft, they are definitely not too feminine so men shouldn't be turned off by this deck.
The deck itself felt really good in my hands. You can tell this was a labor of love. The cards were slightly firm, yet easy to shuffle. The lamination is just right. The artwork on the cards is absolutely beautiful but this is so much more than just another one of those 'pretty' decks that are all flash yet have no substance. These cards are filled with haunting stories all their own and you don't necessarily… Read more
