Question Shadow masters?

Hey guys!!

I just ordered the shadow masters deck from http://bicycleplayingcardsupplies.com/ (check it out very low prices and good stuff!!)
Anyway, I was wondering if it's worth the 7 euros

Why not ask before you order?
And I cant help you I havent got a shadow masters deck.
But I do have masters decks and they are awesome, I use them all the time, I much prefer them to standard bikes

I personally don't like Black Decks, so I wouldn't really recommend them to you

Masters and Shadow Masters are nothing like each other though. I am with Kieran on this one as I don't prefer black decks. Shadow Masters feel good and all, but the black will definitely start to chip at some time.

On the other hand, I don't like how the black fades away at the edges as well as they can ruin your tricks. If it's for flourishing, it shouldn't really matter

Now that is exactly the reason why I wanted myself to have my username changed to Kelan.

Hahahaha!

I hate decks with fancy designs they always seem to say to the spectator that there "rigged" when the certanly are not (which makes no sense to me because if I was using a rigged deck wouldnt I want it to be normal so that they didnt suspect things?) so I mcuh prefer regular desing bike cards they are awesome. I have a few fancy looking decks and I never use them, not even for practice and one of them (Tally-Ho vipers) feels terrible. So in my opinion just stick with decks that look as close to normal as possible.

no, i don't recommend them, not even for flourishing, sure, if you want a deck on your showcase the Shadows would be fine, and the cards' quality stays quite consistent, but after a while of usage( for me it was about 3 months), the border starts so chip and goes yellow, if you want a deck that you can practice a lot with, masters are much more affordable, if you want a deck to do flourish with, bees and tallys have a stiffer stock that is more suitable, if you want a deck that you can do magic with, just about any without a black border will be fine.
