Revolution Playing Cards Rebellion Defiant by Murphy's Magic
- Thomas Jefferson
With nothing more than simple keystrokes, shadowy individuals have the keys to rattle the very foundations that powers are built upon.
There is a hidden world out there, chaotic and swift, where a universe of information is surreptitiously collected and used as weaponry when the time is right. We rarely catch a glimpse of this world, as it hums along in the underbelly of our society every second. On the surface, we see our lives, our communities, our societies... but under that facade is a torrent of digital information - it has the means to reshape history.
The Revolution of tomorrow will be over before society even knows it has begun. It will be executed without angry mobs of protestors, controversial elections, and biased media coverage. With one keystroke, everything could change. Conceived and art-directed by Jason Brumbalow, and illustrated by Abraham Garcia, Revolution Playing Cards was created as an homage to the defiant.
So, look deeper, what do you see? What if the key were at your fingertips? What if you could start... a Revolution?

I was a little bit unsure about the back when initially purchasing this, but I was particularly fond of the court card art so I went through with it. Thankfully, it was the right decision! The back isn't nearly as plain or bright as it appears in promotional imagery. The finish pattern is very visible on the back, giving is a faux-canvas look and gives the deck a more working-class feel.
All of the custom court cards are very well done, as well as the joker. For some reason, I just really like the faces on them in particular. The pips are also all customized, featuring a black outline on the red pips and a red outline on the black pips. The 3-white-line symbol included in the center of all of the pips. The red colour used for the pips is slightly darker than the backs, but even in a dark room it's still not hard to tell the two apart.
The only negative I'd list for the deck is that it'd would've been nice to include a double-backer or a blank or two. A subtle printed pattern on the back of the cards also would've greatly enhanced them, but, the current back is far from bad.
