*GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO ENTERED!*
This is going to be a more simple contest than I was planning. There are some pretty great cards up for grabs this inaugural year. All you need to do is comment to this post and at the end of January I will pick three winners from the entries. Good luck!
UPDATE – Just wanted to update this post. As an FYI to commenters/entrants. If you comment does not appear below you have still been entered. My comment system is very restricted to avoid spam posts. I will update as often as possible to show all comments posted. Thanks for your patience.
Also there will be three winners. The prizes will be chosen randomly but each is guaranteed two decks. Again they are pretty nice decks so keep your eye on your email at the end of the month and maybe you will be a winner!
The tungstene deck is extremely rare and was released in limited quantities by Dan and Dave on their website. They do this from time to time when they discover a unique and well handling deck that they like. This deck is certainly unique and it handles as good as it looks.

Along with a recent order of a bunch of decks from the Blue Crown and the House of Playing Cards I received the new red and blue heraldry decks. These are distributed by HOPC but designed by Circle City Cards.

Another completely custom deck from the folks at ellusionist. They have been on a roll lately creating fairly wonderful decks and the Fathom deck is no exception.

Let me start by saying ellusionist is great at bringing out creative deck designs. The latest decks released are no different. The Sultan Republic decks is initially a feast for the eyes.

The coterie1902 bee decks are exclusive to members of this group though to be honest to become a member all one has to do is purchase some of these cards. To reach the upper echelons of the group you need to be a well recognized magician as the website states.

So these have been around for a while but I just got a hold of a brick. These were recreated to be a close to the almost lost back design of USPCC’s. There is only one back colour and that is red.

First looks at a huge unboxing and reviews of decks promised in the past. This is going to be a busy weekend. The posts should start in the afternoon today.
Also the contest I mentioned on vjose32’s Facebook page is still coming. I am going to aim for it to start around New Years and let it go for about 4 weeks as it will not be super easy. Planned prizes? Prizes will be announced at the contest opening but be assured they will be worth doing the contest.
Welcome to the first of what I hope to be an annual event to award those decks on the market this year the kudos they deserve for their design and handling.
Now to start one has to know that I am writing this before I receive a bunch of decks that were ordered around black friday and anticipate the arrival of the rest near Christmas. I am doing my deck list now as I think in fairness I will not have enough time to really get to know the new decks in time for the end of 2012.
Below you will see some rare to not so rare decks from the USPCC, Dan and Dave, the Blue Crown, Ellusionist and Theory11. I have placed them in order good to better to best ie. 10-5-1. Some of these decks I have not reviewed on the site yet and will get to in the near future though I have had them for some time and know how they handle. FYI more pictures to come bit almost all these decks can be seen on my website in their own review.

So this is one of the first decks in my collection and probably the least used. Not because they aren’t good cards but because I love them so much I don’t want to ruin them. This is another well designed deck from Dan and Dave. I started out researching where to buy cards by watching videos on youtube reviews. Many reviewers kept mentioning this Dan and Dave and all I could think of was the card equivalent of Ben and Jerry’s. Of course Dan and Dave are nothing like Ben and Jerry’s
