I'm currently exploring a card a day from the Deviant Moon deck. I really like it (though I also get the impression it's got a misanthropic streak and gives advice along that slant).

I generally compare the pics to the their Rider-Waite version and anything else in the tarot book I have. Some of them seem quite different. Like the Hierophant: the pics in other decks have him standing face-on, while the Deviant Moon version is sitting awkwardly at an angle, feet turned in and this sort of craven grimace on his face, which I think lends itself to a more negative view overall. And today I got the Seven of Wands, which has a child lost in the woods finding the path out rather than the man-beating-down-the-odds-with-his-big-stick in the Rider-Waite. The Deviant Moon version strikes me as more about survival than victory, with more emphasis on luck than skill. I guess the differences do fit the ethos of the deck more.

So, curious: what cards have you come across which seem to have less-than-usual pics (I'm assuming Rider-Waite's the usual but obviously YMMV)? Any reason you find them particularly striking? Do you think they say something about the nature of the deck they're from?

The Thoth deck is one I can think of that has always captured my attention. My roommate reads this deck, and I believe that she is just the right person to do so--it is a deck of mystery, of realism, of straight-talk. It will not hesitate to give a false reading to a person the deck and reader both consider an idiot. Others I've spoken to see the Thoth in a negative light, but I think the Thoth is misunderstood for its power. They are striking because...well...Thoth. Cheesy
