Any Tarot deck collectors? *This is different from Dakotah's thread as he is asking if you even believe in them and why- this thread is for those who do believe and want to share their favorites alone, no need for anyone to respond here if they aren't into Tarot already*

If you collect Tarot decks- how many do you have and what are your favorites? Can you tell us what your Top 5 decks are and why for each one?

My top 5 are:

1. The Dark Mansion (coveting for a while and en route to me now from Poland- I know it seems like a preposterous claim for a favorite if I have never had it in my actual hands- but I KNOW that it will be.) Tim Burton-esque as many claim it to be- it reminds me of so much- part Steampunk as well as reminiscent of the Haunted Mansion as Disneyland where I worked as a teenager.
2. Golden Thread Tarot- gift from immortxkiss after she saw it in my wish list. It is beautiful and unique, and best used in candlelight so its gold embossing can shine ;)
3. Santa Muerte Tarot- a purchase I made from a Tarot donation that reminds me of my young life in southern California.
4. Chrysalis Tarot- A wonderful deck that incorporates myths and legends from all around the world to represent the story told in Tarot.
5. Tarot of White Cats- I actually have the mini version of this, but I LOVE having cats represent the deck instead of humans. Very anthropomorphic, which isn't a thing many like, but I do :)

If you don't have at least 5 decks- feel free to give us 5 decks you wish you owned.

I have one deck and it's full of symbolism that I'm still exploring: The Hermetic Deck.

I would like to get the
Golden Thread Tarot Deck.
I like to take my time and really learn the cards so I haven't bought a second deck yet.

I started with the Rider-Waite Deck as most on here know. Just starting my collection I got this deck that I am in love with. The Magician Card I have paid a local artiest to create a painting of it for me which I will show off once it is done:

I love Lo Scarabeo brand decks! I appreciate seeing the titles in the different languages, and I also think the card size is easier to handle. I'll share pics here of my favorites soon- but I really can't wait until my Dark Mansion deck gets here so I can showcase that one.

I only have one deck, by Robert M. Place. The Dracula deck, heavy on symbolism yet has its roots in conventional tarot card reading.

The last time I read them for my friends, I think it quite frightened them with my accuracy at interpretation. Many of them wanted repeated readings.

The Major Arcana is pretty simple to read with practice, but the Minor Arcana... now, that is a little bit tricky. There is just so many syncretic details, and I am trying to master this deck, being an academia nerd and an esoteric practitioner. I am still learning new things from it.

The Dark Mansion Tarot deck arrived yesterday, and it's more than I hoped it would be... here's a copy/paste of my blog's review"

The Dark Mansion Tarot!
I don't know if I can adequately find the words to express and explain The Dark Mansion Tarot. I also wholeheartedly realize these things are subjective. So, do understand that I am a person who loves this art-style and vibrant color pallet. I obviously got it because it is a Tarot deck, but I find myself at times solely zeroing in on the artistry aside from that. Such clarity, such resolution, how in the world did they capture this quality of color on these cards? It's far more than I imagined with watching people's YouTube reviews and social media image uploads. It's like the wonder of the Yankee Candle company capturing the ocean in a scent, so utterly succinctly.

My son is colorblind, and last year we got him Enchroma colorblind glasses for Christmas. When he got them, we went straight to the movies to see "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse", because those reds in the movie he would see for the first time in such a way. I thought about that when looking at this deck. People getting Enchroma glasses should look at the deck without and without the glasses to see how incredibly they pop.

Sure the art-style is reminiscent of Tim Burton, but also the style you find in the Coraline cartoon, The Tale of Despereaux, and many others beyond and even before Burton that play with proportion in animation- there's a name for this and I can't seem to think of it. Aside from style- the genre slides form Victorian to Steampunk, and Gothic. A visual delight to be sure.

Whatever your optical magnetism, I hope you find it in your perfect Tarot deck. This one is a surefire winner for anyone who adores the same kinds of things I do. The quality is visual, physical, and mental/intuitive (as far as reading them goes). I recommend them in SPADES. #cartomancyreferenceonfleek

Even people reading for decades still learn things with them. There are countless combinations of questions, spreads, and where the cards land within the spread (or even a free form reading)- so people are always getting new insights. I have 25 decks at this time and still counting. Having a nice arsenal of themes to use for different moods and different people as well is always the goal. But it's more than just themes. I could love frogs but hate a frog deck because the visuals or depictions just don't jive with me. So... we collect, and then we either keep or pass them on if we can't work with them.

I collect tarot & oracle decks. :)

My favorites are:
An Alice in Wonderland Deck
A Zombie Deck ( It’s set in the 60’s, the artwork is so retro & kitschy)
A Spirit Animal Deck
The Dark Mirror Deck ( good for connecting with your inner shadow self)
The Work Your Light Deck ( a lightworker themed deck)


Like other people had mentioned, I use them for different occasions.

Or combined: Dark Mirror & The Work Your Light decks work fabulous together.

I have the the Weaver Tarot Deck Ascendant Edition, by Threads of Fate, and it's probably the most beautiful deck I own. The artwork is lovely, it's gender neutral, and much like the Golden Thread deck, it's on a beautiful silky matte black cardstock and the art is done in holographic foil, so the colors shift depending on the light. I love it immensely.

Pictures can't do it justice, you really have to see it in person to see the full beauty of it.



I would like to pick up the Golden Thread deck at some point.

I don't really collect Tarot decks. I only have two that I keep (I actually had to burn my old deck, recently (don't ask why)).
(1) Murder of Crows and (2) Smith-Waite (pocket edition).

Ironically, I find myself currently using the Crows more often, of late, but only because I've not really been myself for awhile.

I only have two the Beautiful Creatures deck and the Wildwood Tarot. I love both of them because they each have their own charms. I also own the Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle deck which I love because it’s obviously a vampire based deck being related to the YA vampire book series House of Night

Hey there, I've been reading for a while and these are probably my favorite tarot decks (it's so hard to choose!):

1. Tarot of the Healing Earth - Deep and nourishing

2. Play & Divine Tarot - recently aquired, fun and accessible

3. Horror Comic - kinda light hearted, yet capable of serious messages

4. Goetic Tarot - askes me to really dig in and learn

5. Neon Moon - feels dense and kinda heavy

Thank you for this interesting topic.

I am familiar with, and usually use, the Egyptian tarot. Although it follows the same scheme of archetypes as the Tarot of Marseille, the Egyptian Tarot makes me vibrate with the designs of Egyptian mythology.

Secondly, I have at home a curious tarot from the African, Yoruba culture. These letters, however, do not follow the pattern of that of Marseille, but are based on their own mythology, that of the Yoruba people. The way of interpreting it and throwing the cards changes completely, but curiously, it is giving me excellent results.

I've been doing some form of card divination since I was 13 years old and picked up 'tarot' officially around age 18. I believe it is a way for me to connect to my intuition and the spirits by functionating as an extension of my subconscious. It brings the background in the foreground, if that makes sense.
I currently have the Rider-Waite Tarot (what I use mainly) and the Hermetic Tarot deck (gifted to me). I currently am not interested in other decks for means of divination but rather for aesthetic pleasure. The Vlad Dracula tarot looks interesting!

I have Earth Bones Tarot Second Edition, its so pretty and fits me perfectly
I've used it alot and its never been wrong about whats happening or what needs to be done.
Its acutely the first set I've ever had that I felt like it was a embodiment of me, and that I wasn't faking it or trying to read gibberish, I did a reading last night and it was dead on for what my friend needed to hear and what would need to be done.
