Beautiful cards, I love the smokey look on the court cards, the Jokers are absolutely stunning and the backs are one of the most intruiging designs I've come accross so far. I love how they handle, flexible and smooth. I really love this deck.
This is a very cool deck. The box looks really neat. The cards themselves have an intricate back design and the court cards look mysterious with the wispy smoke. The ace of spades is one of the coolest aces I have ever seen. This deck also has the best jokers I have ever seen. This deck handles really well. Overall this deck would be great for magic.
