Black like my ex's heart, and black like the magic I'm going to use to make her rue the day she left me crushed and dejected inside a four square. Anyone who wants to know what's wrong with me, here's your answer: 1) Julie Polanski; 2) 5th grade. This deck of cards is also black like every moment of my life for the past 20 years. I think I'll go play some solitaire.
Balance Wu Design wanted to design a deck of cards "based on a simple concept of pursuing coolness." So they made them black. Because it worked for ninjas. And Johnny Cash. And bottled water. The black-on-black deck contains extra stylized high cards with futuristic twists: warrior Kings and Jacks, androgynous-looking Queens, and a set of skeletal Jokers. Happy pitch-black poker nights.
