The artists for the UC2017 Fifth Annual Decks is Edgy Brothers, Dave & Chris, and the deck name is "Avant-garde", an Art Deco deck following our very successful Art Nouveau (& Bourgogne) decks by Karin Yan of Bonafide Playing Cards.
Here are some renderings, as well as the announcement of the Kickstarter campaign launch date, which will be 8-October at 5PM EDT / NYC time.
The first deck is the blue back deck, and the sketch goal is the (UC lime) green back deck, shown here as it would appear foiled, as in the Ultra Limited Edition deck yet to be specifically named, but similar to the Gran Reserva deck last year.
The plan is to use their standard courts for the blue back deck and the Royal House courts in the green back deck. Everything is still subject to change depending on the feedback here, so let's get started.
I put a little "you're right chach" note on the SWTWC #2017 & #2018 thread, because he's also correct that Rick Davidson of New Zealand will be doing the UC2018 Sixth Annual Decks.
Anything specific has yet to be worked out, he's very busy with his follow up "History" of the UC 2014 Deck of the Year "Origins".
