prudence 
Reader

I used this deck for at least ten years, had all of the books, even went to a talk given by Karen Vogel about the deck (she signed my Motherpeace box while I was there), it's not Thoth based. I'm certainly no Thoth scholar but I did use it for a number of years (after my Motherpeace interest declined) they're very different decks and completely different systems.

The MP was created as a subversion of the patriarchal bent that Vogel and Vicki Noble saw in the typical RWS decks, with the Emperor card in the MP literally representing the patriarchy and all of its inherent abuses (as just one example).

I'm really curious as to how this idea came up that the MP is even remotely Thoth based.
