Black Club Gold Artifice Deck
The Gold Artifice is the Magnum Opus of the Artifice Line. It is the last deck, the crowning glory of Artifice, that took over five months for USPCC to complete the printing - and that was just for the boxes.
With a plush suede tuckbox, richly embossed and laden in gold leaf, the Gold Artifice captures the light in a way that gives an almost halo effect to the deck, charging it with an almost palpable energy even before the seal is broken.
Inside, every card is printed with the signature metallic line-art for which the Artifice is known, in gold for the first time in the series. The ethereal black-on-black jacquard flickers into and out of view as the card moves in the hand, and the gold ink from the back continues around to the front of the card, highlighting pips, indexes and court cards alike.
As this is a Black Club Only deck, the featured Ace is the Club, rather than the spade - the multiple layers of white printed on black glowing from within the shadows of the ace.
Black Club members can purchase as many decks as they like.
Im not a Black Club member, but I think I did the secret hand shake by accident one day because they let me in and I bought all I could afford. They made both sides black, they are thinner than past models, and I can see why they want you to be serious when you buy them. They are so slick a novice will surely fling them across the room and damage them on thier first thumb fan. Definitely the ultimate Artifice deck.
I wish this deck was available even though I'm not a black club member.. I would sign up for black club but it's not available anymore..
I really want this deck because my friend has one and when I used it I was really amazed by all the work they put into making this deck and it looks and handles very excellently....... ACTUALLY ONE OF THE BEST!!!
