I will always love my Pictorial Key, but I am on a mission to find the Stick Figure Tarot(first edition).  Meanwhile, I'll just prep Henry, my piggy bank-literally, for it. ;D

Greenwood, Llewellyn and Shadowscapes would be top of the list!

Then first ed Bohemian Gothic. Possibly Legacy of the Divine.

Definitely Shadowscapes for me! That remains one of my favorite decks. Also the Starchild and Moonchild Tarots, though I don't connect as well with the Starchild's images as I'd expected. It reads really well for me though!

I also needed the Brady Tarot as soon as I saw it, which was unfortunately too late to join the Kickstarter, so I'm anxiously awaiting the day she opens her web store!

It's funny, though. The decks I hemmed and hawed about getting and then finally got are the ones I tend to love the most, more than the "love at first sight" ones!

@odd_soul  I suspect the Linestrider might be a bit like that. I wasn't sure about it for a long time before eventually deciding to get it.

Like others l appeared to fall in love with a few l saw, but then when l got them and tried working with them l fell out of love  :-\

But a few years back l did an exchange for a deck l did not want and got the Roots of Asia in return.  Now that has been a truly love at first sight deck for me, and l am ever grateful to the sender on AT.   It is such a gentle, healing deck, its been my workhorse tarot ever since.
But now l have a new love to accompany my Roots of Asia,  its Poppy's Everyday Enchantment tarot.  They are so chalk and cheese but they both give me wonderful readings.  My younger sitters love the   Everyday, its modern, colourful and depicts todays life style. Also the images are so detailed my intuition can alight on something relevant. 

Whereas the Roots is ideal for the older person, and especially for those needing comfort and sound healing advice.

Ohhhh can't believe I did not mention the Baroque Bohemian Cats and Wizards Tarot.  Both of those were love at first sight and I still love them!

I’ve had quite a few of these. My very first was Ancestral Path which was followed by the Thoth.

The Bohemian Gothic was also love at first sight - I love everything about this deck.

The deck that struck me the most, even when I only saw it in a book, was the majors deck Kashmir Tarot. I was then lucky enough to see it when Gregory kindly bought it to a meet-up.
It made my hands shake just to hold it, it's amazing  :)
(There are many others I love too though)  :)

I love many decks (and have too many), but the one I fell in love with from the very first moment I saw it, and that has never, ever failed me, is Kat Black's Golden Tarot. That is THE ONE for me.

I'm really curious about the appeal of the Stick Figure Tarot - I know a lot of people like it, so I must be missing something!

I don't sure about others, but I am a K Grad(pls see avatar).  Stick figure drawing is pretty much the extent of my drawing skills and my drawings NEVER look as lively as the artist's.  Most importantly, it made me laugh.  I naturally love things that do that ;D

*Putting it out into The Universe...wish the artist could have a 3rd edition in black ink  :D

Love at first sight decks for me would have to be Children of Litha and TrueBlack. Both of them are/were Kickstarter decks but I was only able to back one of them (TrueBlack) I’m hoping that I will be able to get my hands on the other next year after my wedding when I have a bit more spare cash.

To be completely honest though, nothing quite comes close to the way I feel about the TrueBlack deck. From the moment I first saw artwork in a thread on AT I was blown away. For the first time here were images I didn’t need a book to interpret. I knew what each image was trying to express and if there were things I didn’t understand, once the creator Arthur had given his reasoning for the image choices I knew exactly why he’d made that decision.

I was lucky enough to get in on the Kickstarter for TrueBlack and have been kept thoroughly up to date with everything along the way. One of Arthur’s updates was to introduce us to his Devil card... omg... breathtaking! She’s currently the background on my phone lol

*sigh* I could seriously wax lyrical about this deck from here until kingdom come!

The TrueBlack is absolutely one that just claims you heart and soul when you're exposed to it. Strongly seconded!

I fell head-over-heels for the Dreams of Gaia way, waaaay back, when it was just a few cards on DeviantArt. In hindsight it's kind of magical to realise that I came into tarot years after seeing those first few images (as a child), just as Dreams went into publication. Hee!

But as @TheFeeLion said, the TrueBlack and Children of Litha were both love at first sight for me. As were the Numinous and Blood Moon tarots, and Yoshi Yoshitani's Fairytale deck. All pretty different decks, but I absolutely belong to all of them.

Paulina Tarot - I love every single card. It's like stepping into a fairy garden -- with hints of Mardi gras and a Tim Burton movie. It reads beautifully for me. I have a print of "The Hierophant" on my mantle.

Rosetta Tarot - So vibrant and thoughtfully crafted. I knew it was special from the second I saw the first card.

The Illuminated Tarot by Carol Herzer.  I love what she made for me. It is beautiful and the iridescence and colors are so wonderful.  Almost 10 years later, I still sometimes just flip through the cards to admire her work.
