    Right out of the box, I noticed the poor quality cardstock and lack of lamination. The artwork, while beautiful, looks muddy and dull. It looks nothing like the brilliant online previews.The king & queen of every suit are IDENTICAL; It’s the same blonde woman & dark haired, smirk-faced guy for coins, cups, swords & wands. When I first viewed this deck online, I was in love. I felt like it was the deck I’d been searching for my whole life. I love dragons, but I’d never found a dragon deck that really spoke to me the way the preview images of this one did. What a disappointment. I could have lived with the previously mentioned court card redundancies, but I cannot forgive such exquisite artwork being cheapened to this extent. They might as well have printed them out on tissue paper. I feel no energy from these; they feel dead in my hands. And, like I said, CHEAP. I’ll probably be sending them back for a refund.

    An OK attempt to a western dragon themed tarot, December 8, 2013

    The Draconis Tarot by Davide Corsi is a Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) themed tarot which focus on dragons of the western variety. This deck is beautifully illustrated with computer generated art work which takes direct inspiration from Tolkiens depiction of dragons in Middle Earth. However, this deck is marred by uninspired court cards.

    The front of these cards are bordered black with a picture frame colored for each suit (blue-cups, light green-coins, red-wands, gray-swords) or Major Arcana (gold). The back are also bordered black with golden frame on a red background and a round golden inlay emblem of a dragon. This deck lacks labels, using roman numbers on top and bottom for the Major Arcana, numbers on top and suit symbols on bottom for the Pip Cards and dragon symbols on top and suit symbols on bottom for the court card.

    The Major Arcana put the life journey of the Western/Tolkiens Dragon in center stage, from an unhatched egg on the Fool to a hatched egg on the World. This is punctuated in cards such as The Magician, The High Priestess, The Hierophant, Justice, The Hermit, The Hanged Man, Temperance, The Tower and The Star where a dragon replaces the typical human in an RWS inspired imagery. A few cards portrait the dragon as secondary figure, like The Empress and The Emperor, where the dragon seems to be bestowing a blessing on an armored Empress and Emperor, respectively. The Emperor and Empress later appear in The Chariot which is pulled by the two dragons.

    Yet, the imagery in The Lovers, a woman kissing a dragon, and The Strength, the same woman calming a dragon seems to strike just the right note for me. I also like the simple imagery in the Magician, a Dragon standing between four light columns of elemental energy; The Hanged Man, (a Dragon seemingly hanging from the tail) and the powerful imagery in Death, a skeletal dragon; and The Devil, a Balrog-like Dragon emerging from the fracturing earth by fire an lava with a reverse fiery pentacle in background.

    On the Minor Arcana, the suits are directly associated with the elements of water (cups), earth (pentacles), fire (wands) and air (swords). The suit symbols are incorporated within the imagery of each card like in the RWS tarot. The imagery on the pips sometimes dares to deviating from the traditional RWS. However, the Aces are no more than the head of the dragon blasting their associated element up. These seem to be blasting fire in blue, green and red colors for cups, pentacles and wands, respectively. At least, the Ace of swords seems to be blasting lighting.

    Unfortunately, the court cards are uninspired. The dragon became mere ornament on these. On top of that, the knave and the knight seems to be just standing there between two columns on a background colored by their element. The king and queen are sitting in thrones literally placed on their elements. While the Queen of Pentacles looks good sitting on a throne within a forest, the King of Swords looks weird sitting on a throne within the clouds.

    This deck comes with a Little White Book which presents a brief introduction to the Draconis Tarot and its inspiration and a descriptions of the cards in six languages: english, italian, spanish, french, german, and portuguese.

    With a bit of inspiration, this tarot could have rival my first choice in dragon themed tarots. As it is, I put this one behind the Celtic Dragon Tarot and the Dragons Tarot. However, it is not a bad tarot for my collection.

    I got this as a Christmas gift and my friend loved it! The art is spectacular (The Star being one of my favorites) and my friend loves dragons. I would recommend this deck to anyone that loves dragons.
