A Deck with the Hypnotic Beauty of a Snake by Shapeshifters Playing Cards, Printed by the USPCC & Distributed by GW.
Enigmatic, dangerous, elusive... its curves awaken a mixture of fear and curiosity provoking a hypnotic attraction. Since the devil himself used its form to tempt the first woman in Paradise, the serpent has always been a recurring element of allegorical expression in any artistic manifestation.

The card back is the best example of the intricate work in this deck. Subtle forms that are intertwined in complex and full of details designs.
The illustrations of large aces mix organic and natural elements with coiled snakes.
