Deciding for a deck isn't easy for me though. Sigh! I'll be back!
Great to hear it, Nina! What are some of the candidates so far?

They are: VR, BG, Hezicos, Tarot of the Masters (Ricklef). Sigh again.

Well, I'd never presume to pick for you (yes I would! ) but I think the Masters would be a wonderful IDS deck. LOADS to study there!

Just my two yen...

Well, if I've got this right, each card is based on a famous "master" painting, right? I think studying each of the paintings that inspired the cards, the artist, his or her life, and the relationship between the artist, the painting, and the traditional card meaning would be a wonderful study. SO much to learn there

Yeah... you could be right.

James actually wrote a great book (both real and an online version) for this deck, where he also talks about the original painting and his reason to pick it.
And I LOVE his writings.

Hmm...

You saw my thoughts on the Victorian Romantic in OctoberGwen's thread, right? So I won't restate my thoughts here, but I would love a reason to be convinced that it and the BG are more than just pretty...

I've never seen someone IDS with the Ricklef Masters though, so it would be a lovely shared experience

Well... actually you could say that James did exactly what Karen and Alex did; picked existing images that would fit each card (only James then chose to re-draw them himself). Yes, he added a sword etc where needed, but so did Karen and Alex, you know.

I dunno... I just LOVE the BG and the VR, but as we've often all agreed upon; no deck is for everybody of course.

Really look forward to hearing how you'll find the FM, btw.

This is wonderful - so many new people!

I'm afraid I can't start today - it's my son's 21st birthday and we're a bit busy
