It is said that you choose your tarot card deck by the special connection you have to it. I was drawn to this particular deck and was not disappointed when I had them in hand. Some reviewers have pointed out how groovy these cards are, and it’s totally true! Each deck is a product of its time, but I love the artwork, colors, and even the star print on the back of the cards. I also appreciate that this deck comes with a title card, another card that provides information about the illustrator, and an instruction pamphlet that contains the order and general meaning of each card as well as a spread suggestion. I found the pamphlet to be especially helpful in the event you need a little refresher before you perform a reading...it’s useful for a beginner too, but I’d definitely recommend having a book resource in addition to the instruction pamphlet because it is simply too general.

When I ordered this deck from Amazon I was worried that the imagery would be too similar to the R-W tarot deck to really inspire any new interpretations for me. When I opened the deck I had the same fears, the truth is the decks are very similar. After going through the individual cards, however, I would recommend these cards to any collector or reader of tarot cards.
The images have a true vibrancy that is hard to match, and the design of numbers and borders is very inconspicuous and well integrated. Overall an amazing tarot design that is fully realized artistically and conceptually. As a personal touch to all of my tarot reviews I always add if the deck is populated more by one gender or another. This deck has roughly the same gender balance as the original tarot images and doesn't lean more masculine or feminine

So, the time has come that I do a review of my personal, favorite Tarot deck – my very best friend… A deck that i use it all the time! And i think it’s timeless. Everyone who knows me, knows that i am crazy about Rider Waite Tarot and this system based decks. And every reader must find their personal deck and i’ve absolutely found it. The Morgan Greer just resonates with me, my energy and my style. Since it was published in late 70’s, this deck have a unique vibe. The deck was created by Bill Greer and Lloyd Morgan and it was published by U.S. Games. The card stock is just a quite thick and this deck will not get damaged no matter how much do you use it! It totally follows the RWS system, just in the suit of 70’s. I really like the court cards in this deck and i love that is borderless! I just can’t stand the borders! Even though i’m more fan of 80’s than the 70’s, i find this deck perfect for me and every time i consult with it, i get the most accurate results – more then is possible. By the time we of course grow up, changing and we like other things, the Morgan – Greer will always be my go to deck.
I became familiar with the Morgan-Greer deck early in my tarot journey from watching many tarot deck collection and review videos on YouTube. Most of the readers reviewing it would mention it's 1970's style, extremely vibrant colors, no borders and the assortment of cards featuring men with flowing locks and big mustaches. For me, loving almost anything vintage, I felt a connection to this deck immediately, without even holding the cards in my hands. And now that I actually own it, it's my favorite deck to use. Being a Rider Waite Smith system devotee, I personally think that the Morgan-Greer deck reinterprets the RWS images in a much more aesthetically pleasing and intuitively charging way.
Looking at this deck, we see a kitschy, post-psychedelic 70's take on the Rider Waite Smith imagery. While most of the cards look very similar to their RWS counterparts, some of the cards have totally new imagery. The Wheel of Fortune, is one of my favorite examples. It features a crowned man and woman (presumably absentmindedly) sitting atop a wheel being cranked by a hand coming from the clouds. On the bottom right of the card we see a man who's fallen off the wheel, while the two still on pay no mind to their inevitable same fate. A nod to art nouveau makes the characters of this deck extra beautiful. These cards are prismatic, vibrant and bold. Bill Greer's illustrations really speak to my eclectic, retro and vintage loving soul. The readings I've used this deck for have been clear and presented themselves in a gentle way. To wrap this up, this is a beautiful deck. If you're anything like me you'll be smitten with the artwork.
