Exceeded-My-Expectations Oracle Deck: Past Life Oracle I wasn't really expecting much from this deck. I pre-ordered it early on so I was happy to see it drop to around $10. I really like its gilded edges, lack of borders, and its art style. I remove a few cards and use it as a general oracle rather than use it for past life readings. It reads surprising well.
Best Tarot Companion Book: Wizard Tarot by Corrine Kenner The Wizard Tarot deck is a basic RWS clone but its companion book really shines. I am a Harry Potter fan and love spreads so I find myself re-reading this book.
Most Electric Deck: I Am One Tarot I don't use this deck for readings. I just love looking through its images. It invokes a lot of powerful feelings that I can't explain.
Most Disappointing Tarot Deck Purchase: Ghost Tarot I bought it on a whim because I like Davide Corsi's artwork on the Vampire Tarot of the Eternal Night and the Pictorial Key Tarot but this deck just feels flat to me, especially the court cards. My daughter really likes looking through this deck though so that keeps it in my collection.
Biggest Oracle Guidebook Let Down: Halloween Oracle. Not only is it on the skimpy side, but I feel that some of its descriptions are repetitive or off. Love the deck though and the deck's images are very striking.
Most Deserving Of In-Depth Study: Chrysalis Tarot I was on the fence about this deck but after reading so many positive reviews I decided to check out the app and then bought it. Well worth the hype in my opinion.
