So here we are again. I’ve made some posts and I hope you enjoyed them. There are so many decks I have to review and so little time to do so. I have more to come including the Infinity Edition Alienink deck, Density, Bad Robot (mystery deck), Deckstarter, Hi My Name is Mark, Smoke and Mirrors private reserve. I could go on but there really are too many.
Let me know what you would like to see first and I will do my best to oblige the next time I get some more reviews up.

I don’t expect these to appreciate in value though. I think people are sick of the Artifice deck at this point.
If you have not heard of this collection you probably have not been part of the card collecting or magic community for long. The decks in this collection have awed many a person and commanded a hefty sum in the aftermarket. The successful Kickstarter campaign led to one of the most beautiful collections ever created and inspired by currency.
