Last couple of deck (007 and Avengers) i've noticed instead of using the regular deck back for the extra two cards (like you have done for all your other decks), you've been having two bonus cards with just a black backing ruining extra jokers for certain card games. Any reason behind this?

Most of our decks are like this and have been for a few years now, including most decks that used to have extra cards with the back design on them. We sell to many retailers that sell to mostly non-magicians, and extra cards that use the back design (like double-backers) are super confusing to non-magicians. Those extra cards were never intended as extra jokers (else we would have made them jokers in the first place). Instead, we print standard 52-card decks, plus 2 jokers (which are normal), and since the printed sheets of card has 56 "spaces" on it, we print advertising cards for those last two spots. This is the same sort of thing you see in Bicycle decks - 52 cards, 2 Jokers, and 2 Ad Cards.

We are not attempting to target any on specific group of people - we want out decks to be as simple and intuitive as possible for as many people as possible. No magic-specific quirks (on most decks), no game-specific features, etc. Standard poker cards.
