Hey guys! So as you know the new Dragon Back decks are showing up at Target. YOU HAVE TO GET THEM! lol

Anyways, the box looks amazing... the few pictures I've seen online don't do it justice at all!

The cards themselves are like your standard Bike deck (no custom ace unfortunately ='[ lol) However, there are a few differences between the Dragon Backs and standard backs:

1) The red used for the heart and diamond pips is a deeper, darker red (a burgundy almost) than that used on standard Bikes (I don't have any to compare to but I would say that the color is similar to that used on certain t11 decks, like Guardians and Centurions)
2) The court cards, are printed in shades of green and red, kind of like how with T11 decks they change the colors of the court cards
3) You get one USPCC Guarantee Joker and the new colored Joker (duds posted a pic of it earlier)
4) The deck comes with a double backer, which I've never seen in a standard deck I've picked up from the store.
5) It also has a SUPER subtle one way back design, again something I've never seen in a layman deck

The best part of it all is the price... $2.99! To give you an idea, a pack of Standard Bikes normally costs around $1.89 in my area.

I absolutely love this deck! The artwork is spectacular and the color scheme is amazing. The artwork is phenomenal and I love the color scheme. I was just messing with them while at the grocery store and the sales clerk noticed and mentioned how cool they look. These faro extremely well out of the box (I actually got a perfect faro my first try) I doubt they're different than your normal Bike stock but they feel a tad smoother to me (I HAVE been using only Tally Ho's lately so that might be why) A jumbo fan with these looks just like an oriental fan because of the design.

You should have no trouble finding these decks as I know a few people who have found them already. Even if you're not interested, you should check them out if you get a chance.

They are, or at least, that is what Erik and I figured out after some testing.
