Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!
Being a huge fan of his incredible work we wanted to make a deck from one of our most beloved horror fiction writers H.P Lovecraft!
This deck is very important to us so lots of love, horror, blood and human sacrifices has been put into every aspect of the deck from the art detail to the card quality and also turning the whole Ace Collectable team mad but such a small price to pay to gain unlimited power from the Cardnomicon!
We wanted the Pips to have more meaning of why it was chosen to represent each Character and deity.
Diamonds was chosen for Cthulhu as we find diamond's deep in the ground, metaphor for Great Cthulhu deep in the pacific Ocean.
Hearts was chosen for Shub-Niggurath as she is the elder god of fertility and mother of a thousand young, giving life and offspring.
Spades was chosen for Nyarlathotep as we see him as conniving, deceptive and never trust worthy so we wanted to make him into the spade suit as the spade reminds us of a tentacle like his faceless head, body shape and represent the sharpness of the spade point like his tongue as he can cause so much harm from his manipulating ways.
Clubs was chosen for Azathoth as he is described as the Nuclear Chaos, is a boundless deity of colossal proportion we pictured him sleeping in space while lesser entity's playing maddening tunes to keep his slumber we thought this pip would be the best one for him as it’s the largest and could potentially be the shape of his body as we pictured him in our imagination.
Conjuring Arts information: Conjuring Arts proudly introduces our new exclusive Professional Bicycle® Playing Cards to the magic community. These new Professional Bicycles® may look familiar, but they have been custom designed for discerning card handlers. They feature an unprecedented level of quality along with a handful of clever surprises. These cards are printed on the highest quality casino stock with USPCC’s finest coating. This makes for a deck that not only feels as good as cards from 10 years ago, but even better. These cards will make many common sleights easier, and certain sleights and flourishes wouldn’t be possible with any other deck. These decks are arranged similarly to the Spanish, or Fournier, order. It is a natural Stay-Stack or mirror stack and will allow those of you who use Mnemonica to get into stack more quickly than with regular Bicycles. As with our other cards, users can decide whether they prefer the feel of an Air Cushion or Ivory finish. Clever magicians will create “sorts” by mixing the two finishes together in one deck. A very powerful secret weapon from nearly a hundred years ago that has not been available for decades!
There are a total of 12 different editions of this deck. The difference is the prediction readable in the bar code.
