It's probably fair to say that I started in a kind of "middle ground, at least as far as the pip cards are concerned, with the Thoth deck and its "glorified pips." Not long ago I did a side-by-side comparison between the Thoth pips and those of a "standard" TdM deck and discovered that, except in the few cases where Crowley substituted his esoteric vision in toto, there is an almost one-for-one match in the layout of the suit emblems. His original intention of executing "a pack after the tradition of the Mediaeval Editors, corrected" wasn't fully realized, but his version of the pips, stripped of their titles and correspondences, didn't fall that far from the TdM tree. You might look at that as a possible precedent.

The trump cards, of course, are another matter entirely.

The power of Tarot is it's ability to influence your mind. The TdM does just that because it doesn't contain the exclusive influence of solid meanings the RW and it's clones command.

I've been reading TdM decks my whole life and still today it can present new meanings in a single card during readings from time to time. That's not only exciting, but certainly creatively and intuitively refreshing.

Just over a year ago I discovered the Tarot de Marsella Robledo and it has beome my exclusive deck. It's quite organic.
