Incredible Angelic Art
With fine gold printing and delicate embossing on the tuck, fine pen and ink work on the back and throughout, and some beautiful gold ink on the courts, this a beautiful and very playable deck. The traditional courts are highly recognizable even as they pop off the card with their high contrast design and amazing pattern work.
