This deck is one of the most basic decks to start with and, in my humble opinion, one of the best to learn on. I did not learn on this deck and used to have an aversion to it. I couldn't understand why so many people used it...until I used it. It's really an amazing deck and I can see why so many authors duplicate the imagery in their personal decks. If you are interested in learning, consider using this deck or one that uses very similar imagery.
