The Golden Tarot of the Tsar is a metallic LoS deck that uses Byzantine art. The Byzantine tarot by Caitlin Matthews doesn't use metallic foil but a similar artistic style and much gold colour - but it's not shiny. I have both and love to compare them.

The Byzantine is much more critical, it's byzantine art as seen from the outside, as just another mythology or system of archetypes (very intelligent and very well done). The Tsar is made as though from within the Orthdox church, with little critical distance but great respect for the tradition.

I find them both wonderful study decks. The book that comes with the Byzantine is great. And I teach byzantine art so I'm a critical reader.

Both decks are recommended by Nemia!
