I've studied the Elder Futhark a little before, and once used the symbols to write out a statement of intention-- they worked so well that I ran away from the result and probably offended Freya. At least I know they're powerful glyphs, for all their simplicity.
As divination tools, though, I prefer tarot, the full illustrations excite my intuition more... though I'd think stone runes would hold energy better than cardboard and they feel nicer when clicking together in a bag.
I know all of the runes, like anglo saxon, nordic, old english Elder Futhark and such, I have the runes them selves and they work better for me then scrying and tarot. Alot better then tarot for me atleast.
