Finally, a Tarot deck that reflects and is immersed in Satanic principles and thought is available for purchase.

Developed and designed by COS member Delta, this handsomely printed deck is a must for your collection, even if you never intend to use them.

Measuring 2.5 X 3.5 inches, the cards are of superb quality. Not only is the printing magnificent and detailed, the card stock and finish is superb; they should stand up to years of use.

The link above will show you the intricate art work and detail.

For those versed in the way of the Tarot, you will be able to easily adapt the deck to whatever layout you enjoy using. And more: those who are familiar with certain qabalistic techniques will have at their hands an impressive tool to be used beyond the usual divination aspects.

Highly recommended; this deck is an impressive addition to any Satanists lair! coopdevil

@Delta Impressive drawings, really nice. I cannot read the Tarot myself but I enjoyed setting up the cards on the site and reading the interpretation. I did not know you are an artist. The cards are beautiful, it is a very good work.


Just gonna stand there and watch me burn. Well that's alright because I like the way it hurts.

This was obviously a massive undertaking, but it was seen through with the sort of quality and aptitude that one should expect from a Satanist. Every single card was given the utmost attention to detail and is worthy of admiration. A fine attestation of Satanic endurance in the pursuit of the fantastic, Delta's Surrealist Tarot Deck is as much an inspiration as it is a titillating treat.

I've attached a quick shot I took. Mortimer (the skull) especially loves the Death card.

Beautiful work Delta. I'm very impressed by your use of shadows. How you stimulate the eye to follow a highlighted section and appreciate the details. Your knowledge of anatomy has to be a very good one for you to be able to distort bodies in a way that still shows the familiar shapes. Plus the architectural and geometrical figures in your art show a great knowledge of these.

Do you consider Giger and Escher as influences to your style?

May I ask what tools you used?

Thanks! Giger and Escher are two of my biggest, oldest influences. All the cards are pencil and pen on paper, some have a bit of Photoshop for contrast adjustment or clean up.

Is the Death Card a drawing too? Looks like a photo. I like how it stands out and is different from all the others.

Death is a drawing, pencil only though, no pen. It has been inverted but no artsy filters have been applied, the texture is just the paper.

I couldn't believe my eyes! I finally got around to researching your Surrralist Tarot cards and website and I am amazed! I was mesmerized by the spectacular artwork of your cards. And I was spellbound by the amount of useable details involved in the online reading I received. Thank you for creating a truly Satanic tarot website and tarot cards for today's Satanists.

Hail Satan!!

Well, I know this thread is quite old, however I've just discovered this amazing tarot today and wanted to say that it is absolutely gorgeous!

I've placed an order and I'm excited to receive it to play with.

What I really appreciate is the limpid meaning of each card, even for someone who don't know tarot very well.

The modern and black humor touch is great too. My favorite card in this aspect being the Ace of Wand.

However I don't understand at all the card for Death... would the author please leave a small comment about it? :)
