an interesting first impression of the Quareia deck by a magician…
In this post I would like to write about the Magicians deck published by Quareia. The deck isn’t based on traditional Tarot archetypes. Its a 81 card deck that is divided in 4 realms.
“The Divine Realm (red borders), the Inner realm (blue borders), the physical world (green borders) and the realm of death and the underworld (black borders).

Though I haven’t purchased any new decks in more than a year now – due to our dollar being in the shitter and shipping costs being outrageous (I’m so sorry all my darling indie deck creators I love you I do) – I immediately pre-ordered this deck (go now NOW NOW!) both because that art?
