I love the deck and the cause.
Jahid • London • 05/25/13
Beautiful deck that also helps a good cause. It's a win-win.
Sidh • Ireland • 05/24/13
This deck is absolutely great. There is a lot I love about this deck, especially the court cards, they look so beautiful. This deck is a fantastic piece of artwork and not only is it for a good cause but this deck handles very well too!
Anna • United States • 05/10/13
This deck looks amazing!
The box and the cards really stand out!
Plus, this is for a great cause!
Patty • United States • 05/10/13
These are fantastic cards and people love them! When I first saw them on the theory11 website, I wasn't that impressed but decided to give them a try. I'm so glad I did! This deck is very different but theory11 pulled it off in grand fashion. This deck is one of my current favorites and the charitable cause could not be better!
Bren • Canada • 05/01/13
Even before getting the deck, these cards caught my eye. Now having the deck in hand, it has become my favorite deck. Almost every aspect of the cards and tuck box is done by hand and there's such beauty in the imperfection of the lines drawn by a human hand. The first thing about the deck is how much that orange tuck box just pops and grabs your attention. Even the pattern inside the box is a nice touch. The number cards are nice. The suits are copied and repeated but in a way that is not too obvious. The part of the deck that stands out the most are the face cards. Every face is a different animal and they've each got a wonderful character to them. Each suit is done with 2-4 colors that give it all a silkscreen look. One of the best decks I've ever seen.

To start the bright orange has a very relaxed feel to it and is nice to have a change when most decks produced are black and white. Also, the custom court cards have a unique look that makes it hard to get bored of them. Most importantly, the stock a finish works extremely well even with the large amount of ink on the back. Plus, they faro like butter!

A deck of cards with a great cause! While the color scheme does not fit my style, this deck is amazing to look at and is a gem in my collection. Sometimes I'll take them out for card games and people ask about where I got them so I give the charity and t11 some great advertising. These cards are great for any collector and the custom faces can add a fun, fresh touch to your material. Buy now and support a great cause!

This is not just "another great t11 deck." This is a breakthrough for the company. t11 has almost always gone with their traditional grunge and dark colors and has excelled at it. Even hatch's previous release, the Sentinels, showed the black-and-white and that is my second favorite t11 deck now. They have now shown mastery of the bright, vivid, and eye-catching.
THE BOX: The startling sharp orange used on the box, hatch's intricate designs, and the turquoise seal makes you get noticed without even doing a trick or flourish.
THE BACK DESIGN: Again, the orange pops sooo well and anything that you do with them looks sweet. Card spins look great with the sphere in the center as with all other flourishes. The intricacy is incredible and adds even more flair to an ORANGE deck. It is clearly a one way deck, but I really don't care because it just looks so good.
THE FACES: It's already great how I can talk about the faces separately from the court cards as they deserve it. The custom pips are perfect for the theme, especially with the way that they look slightly worn. The orange hearts and diamonds make them more aesthetically pleasing without trying to do to much, like with blue or green pips on other decks.
COURT CARDS: THIS is where the deck goes way over the top. These are the best custom court cards that I have ever seen, by far. They work so perfectly with the theme, and they even match up with the suits for each habitat on the back. The colors are once again startling, and I love how they were able to work in the turquoise for the black court cards. The designs themselves are tremendously creative, like how they worked in the story of the lion and the mouse into the lion court card.
ACE OF SPADES: The ace is fairly simple, but it still looks great and has that hand-drawn style.
THE JOKERS: The jokers are pretty sweet. Like the ace, they are not amazing, but are still great and fit the deck's style. I like the way that the jokers are different colors like in the Sentinels.
HANDLING: The slick on the cards comes standard nowadays, but that does not mean that it does not go unappreciated. The stock is slightly thin, but I personally love that, as they become perfect for springs and handle well otherwise.
THE CAUSE: This deck is so great and the fact that some of the proceeds go to the WWF just made me so happy. I did not have to buy these for that purpose necessarily, but instead because the deck itself is just so perfect.
The purpose of the custom deck was to both create a collectible and eye-catching deck. Animal Kingdom playing cards fit that category perfectly. This is where I feel that many other decks today have fallen behind, like the Monarchs. Sure, the design looks good, but they do not make you get noticed like these do. If you love intricate, vivid designs, this deck is for you. OUTSTANDING job theory11. Do more collaborations with hatch.
Katie • Moscow • 03/15/13
So far this is my favourite deck ever!
I absolutely love all the colors incorporated in this deck. The custom pips and faces look fun and cute. What I like the most are the small pips and the thin borders which make fans look great.
Betty • Virginia • 03/14/13
I love this deck!
Jamie Hale • United Kingdom • 03/14/13
This is one of my favourite decks of all time. I'm being serious. This deck looks really attractive with great pip designs, custom court cards, ace of spades, and jokers. I also love the back and the subtle one way design! The handling is just as good as most theory11 decks, which is fantastic considering it was made using vegetable oils for ink and stuff. It really is one of the coolest looking decks, and not bad handling either. Get your hands on some as soon as possible! For a great cause too.
Vladimir • Montreal • 03/01/13
This deck is just beautiful. I'm an animal lover so this deck is awesome, handles very well. It's very attractive to the eye so if you can, get this deck. Buy it now!!
Shea Stacy • USA • 02/28/13
Great cause, great concept for a deck. But unfortunately not the best handling one ever. More of a collectible than a deck I'd use. But it's still really gorgeous and I'd buy it just for the court cards!
Simon • Moscow • 02/26/13
Very good quality and interesting design! But it is a one way deck!!!
Jordan Amystika • Indiana • 02/25/13
This is probably one of the most fun decks I've ever played with. It's great for kids, and it's for a great cause. I've used these for mentalism routines along with cards effects and they are just great. You get a deck of awesome cards AND help save animals lives...can't complain about that!!
Jahid • London • 02/12/13
Great concept and they also look and handle great, so overall BADASS.
Kyriakos • Greece • 02/06/13
Nice cards. Everything in this deck is different and the best are court cards!
Sorin • Romania • 01/26/13
Is a moderate quality deck, but not comparable to the Monarch or Artisan. But it has a great color scheme and custom court cards. Great deck for every day routines.
Nam • USA • 01/25/13
Everything is custom! The court cards are by far, my favorite part of this deck. It shows all the animals that you are helping by purchasing this deck.
The Ace of Spades is amazing as well. Very artistic and creative in a way. Think this deck is different and not your style? I thought that too, but this deck grew on me overtime.
The handling is magnificent. It's a theory11 deck so you know it's amazing. Get these.
Cheryl • Singapore • 01/21/13
This deck is beautiful, with a beautiful tuck case and nice back design. Though I am no fan of the court card designs, remember that this deck goes into a good cause and you should support them.
Josh Clarke • Prescott, AZ • 01/18/13
These cards are beautiful and support such a great cause. I love how the animals on the court cards within a suit are all from the same habitat. I also love how the pips are not perfectly colored in. It gives the cards a nice look.
Mago Silva • Milano • 01/17/13
I received a dozen of them today! Great box, court cards, and awesome back design: it's one way! You can see easily a reverse card with a ribbon spread!
Doks • Latvia • 01/16/13
Can't wait to get them. Bought them as soon as I could. Hopefully they will arrive this week. The custom designs are exquisite!
Angie • Australia • 01/12/13
WTF?! This deck supports WWF! Haha. :) No seriously, this deck is awesome.
Lalita • Tokyo • 01/07/13
The court cards are the best. 12 different animals featured as Kings, Queens, and Jacks, making this deck so unique. Also, who's gonna say no to a deck that also supports WWF?
Nam • Tennessee • 01/07/13
At first I didn't think the deck looked all that great. I loved the box, but somehow the cards were not popping. I decided to buy one and had to see it in person.
Once I did, I was blown away. The court cards are amazing! Very artistic and fun to look at. The pips are creative too.
The back design is still a little bit weird to me though. But with the cards handling like heaven, it grew on me.
The cards are fantastic now. Get one, and you won't be disappointed.
Do • Vienna • 01/06/13
Really like the orange pips on the cards. This deck is also great for Cardistry and Magic like Andrei said in the EXPOSÉ video. It's an awesome idea to support WWF too. Nice job, T11! ;D :)
Ks • Nyc • 01/05/13
This is the best "charity" deck on the market!
The box is awesome with nice embossing and what looks like metallic ink on the box. The backs are whimsical and fun. The same is true of the court cards. Unusually for t11 the court cards are custom and better for it. They are witty and unusual. Each court features a different animal in a royal outfit.
Highly recommended. Get two or three!
Eric Stevens • Spokane, Washington • 01/02/13
These cards are not anything like what I'm used to, but I'm proud to add them to my collection. The orange box is certainly striking and the face cards are definitely unique. They are certainly not my favorite in terms of looks, but they feel nice and are worth it to help the WWF.
Mightyman • California • 01/01/13
I love how the cards look. It has good quality and it helps a good cause. The only problem I had was that all of the court cards were nice but when it came to the most important card, the ace, it didn't give me a wow.
Aleksey • New Jersey • 12/31/12
I bought this deck because every card is custom-designed and quite unique - and I never regretted my decision.
Not only I get awesome cards, which lead to more questions from my friends, but some of the money I spent went for a good cause.
Do • Vienna • 12/30/12
I really like the orange color in this deck. Also a great way to spend some money in WWF. The ace of spades could be more interesting, but still awesome deck! Nice job, Theory11.
Kane • UK • 12/29/12
Wow. The colour of the box is outstanding. The amount of detail on the box alone is amazing. The fully custom deck is nice to see on theory11. Instead of just colour changes to the pips!
Pain • Australia • 12/27/12
Looks great. Definitely worth supporting!
Zak • Straya • 12/27/12
Lovely box design compliments the custom faced cards. All this and it is for a good cause!
Wen Loong • Malaysia • 12/26/12
Beautiful cards. Support WWF.
Tuval • Israel • 12/25/12
Great job with these. Beautiful work!
Liew • Singapore • 12/25/12
Custom faces. Thin borders. What else can I ask for?
Rich • Texas • 12/25/12
Thank you - these are beautiful. Can't wait to feel them when they arrive. I am also a big supporter of the WWF.
Bloopers • Victoria • 12/25/12
A great way to save an animal's life. Awesome! Great job, theory11! ;)
Marc Quinn • Japan • 12/25/12
I've been a lifelong supporter of the World Wildlife Fund. What a brilliant idea, and a great way to give back and protect the environment we all share.
I love the hand-illustrated feel to the deck, and the court cards are simply brilliant.
Jamie • Cincinnati, Ohio • 12/25/12
Beautiful, creative, and for a GREAT cause. The court cards made me smile - so original it's refreshing. Outstanding work once again by theory11.
Caleb Bowers • USA • 12/24/12
What's not to like. You get a unique deck, and you save an animal's life.
