As the title of my review suggests this is extremely difficult review for me to write, only because I'm not sure how to articulate my experiences with this deck and my feelings towards it -despite owning the deck for over a two months- but I will try my best.

The box that the deck comes in is nothing special, just a little cardboard box. Most people will likely through this out and store the deck in something else (with the exception of hardcore collectors). The card dimensions a little longer and more narrow then most decks, and the card stock is of good quality.

The little white book that accompanies the deck is about 44 pages long and includes a spread and extra pages for notes. It briefly talks about the creation of the decks, and then gives a description, upright and reversed meaning for each card. As far as little white books go, this one is pretty good, and unlike some everything page is in English. Regardless if you're new to Tarot I would use an addition source for some of the meanings.

The artwork is beautiful, twisted, haunting, and loosely based of the Rider-Waite system. There is nothing soft or gentle about these images, so don't expect any readings you preform with this deck to be. At first I found the artwork to be very intimidating, and made my think about things and parts of myself that I didn't really want to face. For that reason I like it would be great for shadow working and other forms of meditation (if that's what you're into).

Despite how much I loved the look of the Deviant Moon Tarot, I had to spend I lot of time with the cards to get comfortable with them, because of how they effected me.

Overall, if you're into dark decks this is a must buy for you, but I would not recommend this for a beginner.

This deck is amazing, creative and still holding the dept of tarot, with some interesthing and thoughtful twist from the Rider-Waite
The moon spread in the booklet I use again and again with surprising results.
Congratulation to this artist his work is fascinating.
At first it felt a little bit dark, but that is part of us too!
So I don't necessarily use it for insecure clients because of one or two squeletons and blood drips...
I have been using this deck for few years now, still love it as much.
It's provocative in it's imagery, straight to the point symbols that will impress the peoples mind and make the message sink in.

Great set visually beautiful. Came in a nice little box and instruction booklet and great looking cards. Also came with a spread mat for a 10 card reading.

I also have the Rider deck, but somehow, this one talks to me more than the latter.

It is rather dark and creepy, so it isn't for the fluffy bunnies out there. But is is beautiful under candle light, while meditating on what the cards are trying to say. They are very dynamic and expressive, the scenes are beautifully rendered and the characters are strangely attractive. The deck in general seems to be based on the Rider, so Rider users will not be so lost with this one (except for a few number switches)..

The cards are very briefly explained, so if you use this deck as a first deck, it might be useful to get a secondary book on Tarot such as Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack.

The only downside is the card texture. I would've put a more resistant coating on it. But it seems to be holding well, and maybe it's just that I just prefer glossy finishes.

All in all, if you like the bizarre, and are fascinated by anything that does not conform to logic, you should appreciate this eerie pack.

I followed the artist when he started this project and when it finally came out I was not disappointed at all. They are simple gorgeous and I would have never guessed the cards were crafted from images he took of cemeteries and tombstones.

I bought these as a gift for my brother, and he loves them. The art work looks amazing, and is just the right amount of creepy! The booklet is easy to understand, and he was able to start giving readings right away.

I still haven't learnt how to use these cards properly but I can attest towards their quality! I love dark themed things and these cards may be just the perfect amount of creepiness without going overboard. The artwork is amazing and holds some of that wow factor when displaying to a friend. Cards feel solid and have a nice size to them.

A really great deck!!! I can be a little picky about my tarot decks and after seeing all the online reviews and pictures I thought I might like this deck but nothing could prepare me with how much I fell in love with this deck the artwork is stunning

Can`t say enough good things about this deck! It`s dark imagery is wonderfully haunting while still carrying enough hints from the RW deck that it can easiy be interpreted by a beginner. Excellent card stock too! Two thumbs way up!

These are really gorgeous cards!! Fairly easy to read, I am new at Tarot, takes practice, probably should've started with an easier set, but its worth it. Comes with a great little description book for each card as well.
