God, no! All - bar one - are so beloved. And they have added rarity value; firefrost's brief foray into deck buying. I am one of the lucky members who has a rare firefrost deck! You don't see many of those in trading now!

Lol...I thought you'd got rid of the other deck when you realised you really shouldn't have bought it! Nah, I still look into the trading thread every day but I'm happy with my precious chosen few now

Who me ? What did I say ? I am not even IN this thread..... I aim to own EVERY LS DECK EVER MADE - and I am only actually missing about three of the very very early and limited ones - and some of the deluxe ones, of course... They do COST so...

I don't regret anything, but there are a couple of decks I own that - well-

Oh but wait - there was that VILE deck I just got rid of in the unloved thread. The Shit deck, aka Scheiss and Turd.... . It came as part of a job lot, and isn't really a tarot at all, but I did buy it, and I did regret it entering my home. Its new owner loves it though. Goodness only knows why. The Turd card was the first answer she ever got from it. For a health reading. She was PLEASED

Hm, I only regret one or two. All the others I bought that were not right simply passed through me to their new homes, where they're now (hopefully) appreciated and loved.

Why do I feel like I'm telling my children that our dog has gone to live on a farm where he runs happy and free all day?

REALLY? I WANT to know more about this!!!!




Now let me see, decks I got & wished I hadn't bothered....

Deviant Moon - yes, weird, creepy & depressed. (I can find that at work I don't need it at home)

Estensi - Castrations & extreme fingernail trimming - nuff said

Truth Seekers - All bling, no substance

Mantegna - too confoozling & faffy

Lord Of The Rings - Cartoony & crap

I Am One - Makes me think of Aliens

Oooh, let me see ...
I hated the Spiral (esp the American-pie pips) so gave it away.
Then - whatever possessed me? - I bought the Celestial by the same lady - EUGH! Despite my love of astronomy & myths, I found it the creepiest, most hideous & scary deck I've ever seen. Those pallid, ill complexions ... that nightmarish swirliness <shudder.>

I dislike the Dream Enchantress, the Secret (mini) & the wonderful Rachel Pollack's Shining Tribe too. And the LS Art Nouveau. (I need to trade away these last 4.)

Tarot of the Elves. Too bloody bloody for me. The cards generally advertised aren't the creepy ones, no, those are a secret till you open the deck. For instance, on the 5 of Swords a girl-child runs along a stone fence with maniacal glee - she's holding a sword dripping blood, there's a bloody pentagram on the fence she's drawn, her clothes are smeared with blood, & a bloody body lies in a field beyond. Not my cup of creep.
