Sinking Wasteland Tarot Deck with Rigid Box and Booklet - 5th Edition
The Sinking Wasteland Tarot Deck, now in its fifth edition, includes 78 Major and Minor Arcana cards, all fully illustrated and printed at the standard Tarot size of 2.75x4.75" on matte-coated linen card stock, intended for durability and vibrant reproduction of both the darkest and lightest elements of the imagery. Each deck is housed in a rigid two-piece box designed to provide protection and longevity even while bouncing around in a full backpack while you’re on the go. Also included is a 30 page guide book with instruction on how to use your deck, card themes, and associated quotes.
The Sinking Wasteland Tarot is set in a post-apocalyptic Gothic western wasteland using the archetypes and themes of a RWS Tarot deck to bring its setting to life. Its world is one with toxic water rising slowly to swallow the land. Lands that are mostly desert and wastes. Wanderers that inhabit the world and the unknown creatures and magics that were unearthed when the world broke.
In creating this deck, I found that I was able to communicate visually a great deal of the atmosphere that I was hoping for, and I've been very pleased with the results and its reception. Some of the characters that I've drawn are based on people I know, others are pulled out of thin air. I wanted something with more diversity than I encountered in more traditional decks, and so in this interpretation of the tarot you will find different body types, ethnicities, ages, sexualities, and gender expressions. If you'd like to take a closer look, you can find images and my interpretations for the cards at pixeloccult.com

I originally came for a different deck, but this one caught my eye before I could find the other! The Fallout meets Umbrella Academy vibes I get from the artwork is what really connected me to these cards; they’ve called me out harder than any other deck I’ve used. My only challenge is not dropping half the deck when shuffling them as they are very sleek. The minor suits all having different colors GREATLY helps with learning tarot (connecting the colors to the overall aspects of the suits is SO HELPFUL THANK YOU) Overall I’m so happy with my purchase and over the moon excited for the future readings I’ll do with them! 100/10 would recommend 🥰
Steampunk vibe, and doesn't that fool card made anyone think of the Persona Series? Yes, I really did buy this whole deck because I loved the Fool card so much. The rest of the cards are beautiful too. Did I mentioned that every deck I bought from PixelOccult arrived so QUICK! Fast shipping for real. So happy with my purchase. A great collection for any tarot lovers and art collectors like me ^.~
I have purchased a couple of tarot decks from this artist and find that I really enjoy them, especially after I have spent time to get to know the variables. The Sinking Wasteland deck has great art that a beginner can easily use. The artwork is fun and depicts youthful characters, but I personally feel the style is more for teenagers. I enjoy the detailed descriptive drawings, but it hasn’t drawn me to work with the deck as much as hoped. I am positive that there are many many many others though that will adore these cards. I do love that the cards are textured, perfect thickness, and different colors for each suit. I would urge anyone who likes the artwork and wants a starter deck to jump into this one! It fits all emotions and is a lot of fun. Thank you for sending the cards faster than a winged horse!
I like this artist so much, I ended up ordering all of his decks. The post-apocalyptic scenes are very evocative.
