I LOVE the Cartamundi B9 stock, and these do not disappoint. I also love the deck design and I have been using these cards exclusively during the month of October for performances for the last few years--they are cartoonishly spooky but not hokey or silly, and really catch the eye and get good reactions just based on how they look. The box is a little bit impractical, and I have had to adapt a few tricks that use the box, but this is a minor complaint. I have several of these decks and I hope they aren't discontinued for good!
The amount or craftsmanship that has gone into these cards are amazing. The card stock they are printed on are the perfect weight and the ink used to print is just amazing
I love the fact that this deck is fully customized and everything in it makes sense.
This deck is really cool. Nice tuck case that opens from the side. Great feel. Cool and creepy designs on all the face cards of recognizable monsters... A must have for Halloween.
This is the coolest deck I own. The custom court cards are straight up fire and the texturing on the court emblems looks super profesh to design snobs like me. My only critique is that I can't find out who designed the art for this deck to give them due credit! Shout them out please and help put an end to my tireless googling!
These cards are amazing. These are my first experience with the B9 stock and i gotta say after handing what feels like every stock ever made lol this is my new favourite stock and will for sure be buying more decks with this finish
Got this deck through the 3 deck trial pack. Really happy that I have a horror themed deck for this Halloween!
I received my order today. I was surprised to see that the deck opened from the side (think Nocs Gen 2). It is something that I was like "meh" at first on, but then after looking over the whole box I really enjoyed the almost VHS tape 'feel' to the looks. Each face card depicts famous monstrosities that we all know and love/fear. The overall aesthetic of the cards feels very retro 80's horror film which is a nice touch.
Overall, the deck handles well. The cards I'm assuming are manufactured by Cartamundi as they came pre-wraped in cellophane and have an almost greasy feel to them. The stock itself is very thick, so I have high hopes they will last for quite a while. I'm not certain I'm a fan of the stock yet, but so far so good. They look amazing for flourishing and magic and would be perfect for performances on Halloween due to the aesthetic appeal and potential story telling attached.
I highly recommend you pick these up if you are interested in something different to add to your collection, if you are a fan of old school horror movies, or are looking to try something different then the normal USPC stock.
I finally got these in the mail today. The backs are not the best, but still decent. I'm also not a huge fan of the box opening up from the side. I like to keep the boxes pretty clean and the tab that keeps it shut is already creased from opening it up maybe 3 times. What gets me is (1) how slick the cards are. They are the slickest cards I own. It's been a struggle handling them up to this point, but overall I feel it will make me a better handler. (2) The face cards look absolutely sick, each depicting a different famous monster. I absolutely love these cards and have no regrets in snagging them.
