That tuck looks amazing! And loving the back design, too. This is a must have.

He produces some of the best back designs of anyone in the card industry today. Unfortunately his court cards aren't at the same level as his back designs. If he redesigns the court cards to match the quality of his back designs and his jokers, I'd buy bricks instead of just two.

Dodn't like the first ones with the different color suits, I thought about getting one of the two recent ones but I think I'll get this one.

Wonder what the marking system (if any) will be like? See a lot of areas of the design that could be used, looking forward to figuring it out! But still I'd love an unmarked deck of his to be able to use in games.

Give us a couple of days, won't be long. Maybe the 1st? Possibly sooner, but not likely.

EPCC YESSSSS. Hopefully with the same quality as the NOC V3s. Those are frigging amazing. I used to hate the NOCs, but the V3s just handle really really well. Better than anything than USPCC has come up with. I've handled my NOC V3s for days and weeks, but they still handle beautifully. On the other hand, a Virtuoso Summer/Spring becomes unfannable after 2 days.

I agree with you. The NOC v3's are what I use as my staple deck. I use them pretty much for everything these day. Throwing, cardistry, and practicing because they hold up and handle very well. I hope they actually use the same stock as the Gnostic deck though. The diamond finish feels great.

The back of the tuckbox is gorgeous, reminiscent of oriental designs. If only the front of the tuckbox was simply plain with embossing of the same pattern used on the back. Also it looks like there could be a different tuck variation with the side loading tuck.

Hope the toploader is the unlimited and the sideloader being the limited, but my gut tells me otherwise.

Sorry, I wasn't being clear on my post. Both top loaders are limited to 1000 each (Gold and Silver), and the side loader is the unlimited.

EDIT: If you look closely at the first picture, you can see a diagonal cut along the side of the tuck. I'm guessing it'll be a flip top, similar to D&D's gold private reserve and upcoming Voltige deck. Which means the ornate embossing is actually the front of the deck.

Yes, the latest paper stock upgrade for Expert PCC is quite good, as is the finish, of course. MPC has done a similar upgrade, and their decks handle quite nicely right out of the box. USPCC also made an upgrade to their 'base' paper stock recently, the result is that everybody gets better grade and better feeling cards all around.

It's no longer a question of if they will be competitive any more, all of them have great products, all of them have their own specific niche markets, except of course USPCC is the big dog and everybody tries to keep up. Right now I don't think anyone that has one of each of these latest paper stock decks close at hand can argue that they are all doing great things, and we (cardists, magicians and collectors) all benefit!

I'll have to revise my estimate for launch on these to be between the 3rd and 7th. Nice campaign, basically very much like Heretic - it's all about the cards and no add-ons except for a stretch goal to make a commemorative coin. There are some Early Bird tiers, but not a lot (well, enough).
