In 2012, I reviewed the Deck of Heroes Tarot on my Tarot Examiner page, which is no longer available. I noticed the broken link within one of the Tarot Combinations posts and wanted to repair it. Below, you will find the review of the deck I presented in 2012.
Deck of Heroes Tarot by Richard ShadowFox
Complete with instruction book and Schiffer box, this 78-card deck features at least one male hero on each card. From knights to scoundrels, these images are sure to get your imagination rushing in many directions. This is a deck sure to please any collector or romance addict.
The artist did a wonderful job with the imagery of this deck. It’s more than a deck of men. The settings are very interesting. Some cards are on the dark side, but I find this richens the images. The card backs are different but entrancing - almost pulling you into its puzzle of lavender.
The deck is based on the traditional tarot card meanings, but this is not a good choice for a new tarot reader. While some of the cards are easily read, some may leave you confused about its representation of the usual card meaning.
For me, this is more of a deck for the sake of art rather than tarot reading. I would recommend this deck to collectors, art enthusiasts, and writers (especially romance writers.)
Purchase your deck at Schiffer Books.
Images from this deck appear in the March 2012 posts - Tarot Combinations - 3 Empress and 2 High Priestess and Tarot Combinations - 8 of Pentacles and 6 Lovers.
