I agree with Denis about writing on cards, but I'm cool with Logo Text.
I don't object to the concept of a deity, but I'm puzzled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

Hm, I never liked text on a back design. I find it distracting. Also, with multiple colors on the back one has to be very careful (see all those ugly design decks), but the red-blue-black WPT back is not too much in that regard.
I also have really mixed feelings that sort of text use. I mainly see it used by casinos or for casino typed (gambling competition) decks. I might experiment with it a bit, but it's probably not a high priority.

I don't know if I've ever seen a card back that had more than two or three colors that I thought didn't look like crap. For me, two colors is sort of the max I'd be comfortable using in terms of keeping a clean look. Backs should be nice, but not some kind of garish distraction (though you wouldn't know that from looking at all the decks produced these days....) I'm also sort of leery about overuse of gradients, though I have seen a few well done examples of that.

One thought I've had is (once I nail down the 4-6 primary colors for the back I've already created on the ones that will follow) is to perhaps create sets using the same exact colors but in either a more pastel way or perhaps a higher saturation set. This (and perhaps adding some colors like orange and ugh, maybe purple) could be instrumental in obtaining a nice rainbow deck at some future point.

I've noted that in the commercial Rainbow Deck USPCC makes the yellow and purple cards don't work. The yellow backs are impossible to see, and the purple is so dark that it's not distinctive. A light purple would make a good other color between black and red.

I already have a nice golden (not the horrible yellow used by USPCC) shade locked down that I will eventually test print to make sure it works. Light purple would be the only way I'd go with that particular shade.
