Card hoarders, listen up: you can now pre-order the upcoming Radia deck from Encarded. The design is inspired by inspired by Encarded's Aurum deck and will be fully unveiled at the 52 Plus Joker card convention on October 13th. Only 1000 Radia decks will be made and will never be reprinted, and if that's not enough to tempt you, Encarded claims they will also feature a "never-before-seen production feature." Mysterious.
Paul Carpenter had this to say about Radia:
Aurum has always been one of my personal favorites and I’ve wanted to make a deck that pays homage to it for a long time. For several years I’ve had a design motif in my files which I feel speaks beautifully to some of the original design ideas from Aurum, but until now I have not found a way to make this new deck truly special. Luckily, Expert Playing Card Co. approached me last year with a new possibility that I think perfectly accents the design and allowed me to create something brand new in the world of playing cards. The result will be quite spectacular.
