Morgan-Greer Tarot Review
The Morgan Greer Tarot deck is on of these Waite-Smith clones; it sticks so much to Pamela Smith’s original designs that there is not much to say about this deck. The symbolism has been simplified, and “purified” from heavy Hebraic and Astrological connections. The author adopted the close-up style that can also be noted in the Aquarian and New Palladini Tarots.This is sometimes annoying as you don’t get to see the whole picture, crucial for some scenes: For example, in the Fool, the viewpoint doesn’t allow you to see clearly that the boy is about to fall off the cliff. In the 5 of wands, you don’t see what is happening; you can’t guess whether it is a fight or a “all for one, one for all”! Same remark for the 7 of Pentacles and 9 of swords.
Another annoying point is that there is no consistent distribution of ages and generations among the court cards. Some knights look like kings, and some pages have the look knights should have had. See an example here.The pentacles are a bit too big on certain cards. However, these are details you only see when you fussy and want to be picky. Overall, I like this deck. In particular its Devil which is the best Devil I have ever come across. More cards can be seen here.
This deck is primarily for beginners, but everybody can use it without any problem.
