My first deck was Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle. I've had it off and on for around 15 years or so. Its still my go-to deck especially if I don't feel like puzzling through a tarot reading. I always find it gives great readings :icon_mrgreen:

My first tarot deck was Brian Williams Rennaissance Tarot. I really need to get the companion book for that one! I feel like I'm missing out on so much not having it!
Come faeries take me out of this dull world. For I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame. - W B Yeats

May you touch dragonflies and stars, dance with faeries and talk to the moon. - Unknown

Hello, new here :wave:

My first deck -and primary deck up until now- was a traditional Marseilles...

I remember reading in an Enciclopedia a small entrance on Tarot cards accompanied by pictures of 5 cards. I was mesmerized with the Medieval-esque drawings and the caption that read something like "cards of unknown origin used for divination".
Later I found a cartomancy book on the discount section of a library, so I saved a few weeks and bought it (I was 11-12 at the time, so my allowance went there)...
After reading the book I started practicing (mostly with classmates) with a mock-up deck I made by photocopying and coloring the line-art of the cards on the book...
Since there, I have never bought a mass-produced deck. I find the images and then print and cut them myself :trans17:

Hello and welcome to the forum :wave: .

Colouring your own cards like that seems a good idea, it's personalising and focussing your energy on them and must make you pay attention to all the details :icon_cool: .

I don't remember - too long ago! :icon_eek:
There are three ways of looking at things; theirs, yours, and my Tarot cards.

Nemia, did you do anything with the extra Magi? I have two of these old blue box ones with extra magi and I have read they were 'fillers' and not worth reading with. I wondered if you'd found another use for them?

You could use it like some people use that extra card in Hanson Roberts, as a sort of wild card, which you would need to assign a meaning to beforehand. An enhancement of other surrounding cards perhaps, sorta like the Sun does only amplified? For Good or ill? Up to you. Oh, All Souls, I think.
