How to Choose a Tarot Deck

Many experienced readers will advise you to start with the Rider-Waite deck. I can't really argue with this. It is the basic, modern deck. It is the standard on which thousands of other deck creators base their cards upon. It is a good deck and you should buy yourself a copy at some point. 

So my suggestion is that you go for one of the first three options—the original Rider-Waite, a RW clone, or a recolored Rider-Waite. Personally I would avoid the old, but still popular Marseilles deck and also the famous Thoth. The Marseilles only has illustrated Major Arcana—its numbered Minor Arcana are, what we call, 'pips'. They show the main symbol of the suit multiplied by the number of the card. Therefore the Four of Cups displays four chalices but nothing else to jog your thoughts.

There are many who say there is only one deck, and that is Aleister Crowley's Thoth tarot. The Thoth is its own system, and is held in wide esteem by tarot scholars. However, it is relatively more difficult to learn and also has keywords on— which I don't recommend. Turn to the Thoth later if you feel drawn to it.
