Why

That's the big question now. Why would anyone use this? What is it for? What makes it different from other oracle/divination/kick your subconcious in the ass decks? It's really small compared to most. I can see the Gates being really useful when used with another deck. Maybe it is best used when you've got a major transition/descent coming up? I dunno.
