    Created by Sergio Roca Martinez.
     
    "Odyssey Boreal Edition is the result of a past year trying to create something different from any existing deck, but keeping Odyssey's essence. I, as cardist and card designer, wanted to design what my followers deserve, and not just a simple new color but a second edition with a substantial change.
     
    Like the first edition, the back shows a diagonal strip that crosses the corners. In this case, Boreals has a blue turquoise nebula inside the strip and borders, instead of the famous White Strip of the First Edition. This nebula recalls Aurora Boreale which is an incredible light show caused by collisions between the electrically charged particles released by the sun entering the atmosphere of the earth and colliding with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. Is not that amazing?
     
    The color range is completely different from the first edition. The purple, pink and orange shades are transformed into full blue shades.
     
    GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS
    52 playing cards + 2 Joker.
    Magic Finishing and Luxury Cardboard.
    Fully customized.
    Printed in Taiwan.
     
    Odyssey Boreal Edition is made with one of the best cardstocks in the world, the Luxury. This new card is thinner and softer than the classic card used for the first edition, and this makes it more convenient and easy to control when performing bouquets that need bending techniques like accordion, fancy ... is something very appreciated among cardists.
     
    Let's talk about the finish. The finish of the Boreal Edition will be the Magic finish as the first edition. This makes the cards smooth but still with great control. Great for deck cuts, this combination combined with the Luxury card makes Boreals one of the finest bones for Cardistry.
     
    The aces show pure elegance and a lot of style, and rise over the rest of the cards. Each ace has a unique style, but none of them is better than the other. Distant but close, these four cards are the treasure inside the deck.
     
    The Jokers show two five-pointed stars in their index, and this brings us back to the old school jokers but without abandoning the Boreals design.
     
    The design of the case is no less. Demonstrates elegance and minimalism with some futuristic touches that express strength and presence. You can appreciate how brilliant colors live on the white background without being out of place with the design. Contrasting with its backs, the white strip turns into a strip of colors that hides the Orion Nebula, this time, in blue tones. "
