I think with the pictures the contrast on the old backs looks great! That said I don't think images do foil justice and the actual cards will look amazing full foil.

Hello Vasta41,

One of the most important things I learned in those years as designer is that design is based on choices.
When I design a new deck, I always do a lot of color proofs before decide what to produce and what discard. Sometimes options are too good to chose, so I decide to use both (one example, Omnia Oscura and Omnia Illumina). I did a lot of discarded versions of Omnia, Dedalo and Pantheon before I decided what to do - for example, I wanted do Pantheon Blue/Gold before I tried violet, and there are some tuck proofs of Omnia that I'm sure that would be cool to made (and maybe...). I never show anything until I'm almost sure it's the final version, to avoid that people may be upset because I decided the version A instead of B.

Usually I decide basing on my taste - but when a choice is difficult and important, like the Pantheon back, I always put on table all the elements I have, to decide wich option is objectively better: the violet/gold have a better contrast between colors but it may have registration problems, but the full-foiled have an incredible amount of foil (renders are not good as the final result, I think) and less problems. I like both backs, but the second one is more spectacular and have less issues - so I decided for the second one. Also, it's more similar that my first rough idea of Pantheon, that was something like: "I want do a crazy deck with Greek Gods and A LOT of foil on back" :p

Why I decided this during the campaign and not before? I had the feedback from EPCC about the registration problems relatively late, so I needed some time to reorganize and decide what to do.
I also needed to check with them how much it would cost the "second option", that use much more foil on the back to decide. When I verified that the second option was resonable and safer, I decided to unlock is as the first stretch goal. I hoped to had more time to decide, but 20k arrived faster than I thought ... so I took this decision yesterday night :-)
It was not an easy decision, I knew in advance that someone would had liked the previous version more.

I hope it helps to understand a little more the project and it's a nice story to read. I'm always happy to share some stories with you guys ;)

In the end I think it will be great. Even if I'm a big fan of metallic ink, a full foil back will be incredible to see.

P.s. the effect of the violet metallic ink on the faces of Pantheon is very similar to the green metallic ink I used on Omnia Perduta. If you want to see how it would look, this is the best example :)

Thanks for the feedback and the awesome support!

Just want to add my voice to the choir, I really like the first back with the foil star accenting the purple card back more than the full foil back. I understand registration is critically important, and couldn't be more excited for this deck no matter how it turns out!!

The funny thing is that the hint I shared is:

This is a totally fair point, The first all foil back I saw was Lotreks Venexiana Gold and it was really amazing

Since all the x1 was sold out, I opened a "late x1 Pantheon" for the new backers who want just one deck - a lot of tiers are sold out or almost gone, if you are on the fence take a look :mrgreen:

Thank you guys for the awesome support!

I'm going to be dropping my 2 deck EB- it's just too expensive and I can fund a couple of other KS projects for what it costs for two Pantheon decks. If anyone is interested, PM me here and I'll respond in a few hours so that we can arrange a time for the transfer. I hate to have to do this as it's a beautiful project but that's just where I am financially at the present time. I'm sure the project will somehow manage to survive without me ;)

Hello UC friends :-)

I just unlocked a nice stretch goal for every Pantheon deck - an extra card (55th) that represents a third joker, Persefone.

Plenty of decks now with the gold foil. I like this one but it's time to see some other colors now.

I recieved a couple of Pantheons today and I am very, very happy.

I wrote a long review, with pictures and a funny video (because I'm not good in making videos), on my latest update > https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/th ... ts/1840711

I hope that everyone backed it will be happy to see it turned out so great. :mrgreen:
