These cards are lookers, and the art style is top notch (I like the way the pips are laid out especially). Good quality stock and finish. If I had only one complaint, blue and gold are lower contrast than black and red, so identification (both for me and far moreso, spectators) can be problematic. Probably better for cardistry and sophisticated game nights than magic, simply because people will not readily identify with the unusual look. But I love em!
