Hi Marcus,

This is probably not going to help you

However here it comes

The first clue is that the box end of the mystery edition has the writing http://www.deviantmoon.com, while Their website is now http://www.deviantmooninc.com.

From the command line, if you run:
ping http://www.deviantmooninc.com
you get:
PING shops.myshopify.com (23.227.38.74): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 23.227.38.74: icmp_seq=0 ttl=57 time=5.059 ms
64 bytes from 23.227.38.74: icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=13.280 ms
which seems to indicate that http://www.deviantmooninc.com is hosted by shops.myshopify.com

If you run the command:
whois deviantmooninc.com
you get:
Creation Date: 2017-12-31T18:46:37
which if I'm not wrong is the date when that domain was purchased at the registrar.

If you go to https://web.archive.org/web/2020*/deviantmooninc.com
you will see that the first time a page from deviantmooninc.com was archived was June 28, 2018.

And with a similar test I could ascertain that in Jan 2018 deviantmoon.com was already redirected to deviant-moon-inc.myshopify.com, and by April 2018 to deviantmooninc.com.

All this palaver leads me to believe, unless I made some logical error which wouldn't be unusual at this time in the evening, that your mystery deck could have been published before the first quarter of 2018. Unless they decided to continue to write the old domain "http://www.deviantmoon.com" on their tarot decks even after they changed their website domain, in which case all my sleuthing led me to a dead alley. :D

The second clue comes from their pinterest page:
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/11118330306517664/
The main picture shows "333" and the subtitle reads "333 Major Arcana".
The copyright of the box on the picture says "2014©".
But perhaps "333" appears in other products of theirs, in which case this is a red herring.

If you feel so inclined, you could check the archived pages from 2014 on archive.org. Perhaps you will find some page on the mystery deck, which has since been deleted from their website.

Miss Marple has left the building. :)
