I like these, I'll get it. I wouldn't have to collect all 7 unless I like them all.

You could get the whole skull with just the middle 3 decks :lol:

These guys crank out decks crazy fast and for me personally they are a bit lazy, but on the other hand some of them are kinda cool and bicycle branded... I think ima pass this one given my dislike of black cards but maybe if I like the rest of the series ill pick it up later just to have the complete set.

There have been a few times when I've been intrigued by a CPC deck. This is definitely not one of them. The back design looks to me like a cheap knock-off of Ignite, which ironically is much cheaper ($7.50 vs $12).

This back remind me of poor man's Ellusionist's Ignite. These 7 decks I'm pretty sure will all get passed by me, especially if they are doing one every 2-3 weeks.

So, I feel pretty much the same way. As I've mentioned before, CPC has shown that they can be very clever and creative, and I love to back their stuff when they are. They are always top notch when it comes to fulfillment, too. But, at other times, they've shown that they can be redundant. This one isn't grabbing me as one of their must-have decks.

Even so, I'll make this point: unlike Ellusionist, CPC is probably going to complete this series. :-)

I dunno. I think the color scheme gets kind of muddy way too easily. Again, CPC is tending towards getting lazy recently. I hope Gusto (Mike) picks up his game.

The comment about it looking like Ignite (or Brimstone?) is spot on.

I'm not sure about these

As other users have said these look pretty similar to Ignite's.

I'm never really sure about CPC's decks and only some catch my eye. They pump decks out like Tomato Sauce so I think, if they actually took their time on some of these they could be so much better.

Sadly I think you're right. I'm most disappointed in E for not completing that series. Instead they're wasting time embossing the tuck cases of 10 year old decks and charging $25 a pop for them :cry:

Isn't there a rule about a creator having multiple live projects at one time?

This seems like a play to charge double shipping, but get them produced together...

Kickstarter doesn't enforce any of their rules and CPC has always done this.

KS rules have pretty much gone out the window for playing cards. They're making too much money now.

Well, they couldn't have done this in a lazier way. I'll be on the lookout for the blue tsunami deck :roll:

This is pure laziness, it doesn't look as good the first one. I won't be surprised if others look closely like each other.
