Decks With Dark Backgrounds


Recommended Posts

I am trying to think of some additional decks with dark backgrounds, to come up with possible pairings I might want to add to/use in my collection. By dark backgrounds, I mean decks where the primary color of the background is a dark color. I have a few in my collection already which I'll list below. If anyone can think of any others I'd be grateful!




Prisma Visions: The background of this deck is dark blue, contrasting deeply with the bright colors of the art and the silver edging




Tarot Swietlistej Drogi: The cards are white and gold on a black background, giving an almost glowing effect to the art




Marigold Tarot: This indie deck came out last year- the card art is white with accents and borders in gold ink on black background






Shamanic Healing Oracle: This deck has wonderful, simple and colorful drawings on black background




Flowers of the Night Oracle: Beautiful art with sparse color on black backgrounds

I'd like to recommend three stunning independently created decks:


The Darkness of Light Tarot

The major arcana all have this palette while the four suits each have a color theme. The minors are not quite as dark but the creator's art has an overall darker feeling.


The Shadow Light Tarot

An incredibly complex panoramic deck in black and white. It also has a minimalist mini-version with a black background called The Wander Light Tarot.


Soul Cards




A symbolic and minimalist deck with gold foil.


Hope that helps!

Just a post to find this post back - I love the dark background cards.
Only have the Shananic healing myself - but I feel the need for another deck I really want to check this post!
