There are many other decks you can choose from, such as the Morgan Greer and Wild Unknown decks. They are more visually appealing, but they are less intuitive for beginners. The Morgan Greer deck is basically the Rider-Waite on steroids. This deck is a great choice for anyone looking for big faces, bright colors, and Game of Thrones-themed imagery. Whatever tarot deck is chosen, it is important to find one you like and easy to interpret.
