This has long been one of my favorite decks. Heavily influenced by the Rider Waite Smith deck, the Morgan-Greer Tarot features vibrant, rich illustrations in natural looking palettes, with a sort of hippie-ish, art nouveau, stained glass kind of feel to the artwork. I realize not everyone likes this deck, but it remains a trusty sidekick to me. I find the symbolism in the artwork friendly and easy to read, which makes it the ideal deck for everyday use, for me. I own two; one that is precious to me for its memories, and a new one that I use for reference and to play around with when I'm trying to figure things out.
