Wizards, wizards, everywhere!

The Wizards Tarot is now available to
pre-order (£19.99). Just thought I’d let you know.
What’s that? Oh, you want to know more? Hmm…
Actually, I didn’t think this deck would be my cup of tea and I was right: it’s far too exciting to be a mere cup of tea – a cup of magical transmogrifying elixir would be more like it. That said, wizards (much like vampires) are not my thing. HOWEVER, I do appreciate a deck with good structural integrity and attention to detail and this deck has that in spades. Just look at what they’ve done with the majors. Each major (except the World and the Fool) is represented by a professor at the fictional (I assume) Mandrake Academy. I think this works really well. For example, the Hierophant is suddenly cool again as the Professor of Mythology, and Justice is the Professor of Ethics. The Chariot is the Professor of Astral Travel and the Devil is the Professor of Dark Magic. Judgment is the Proctor of Final Exams. See! This deck is so much fun!
You can visit the excellent official website here, where you can see all the cards, read the study guide and be encouraged to buy it from a rival store. I know I can rely on you to ignore that last part. 😉
