Traditional meanings vs deck-specific

When you have a non-RWS deck that has its own book, or even keywords on the cards – do you tend to read with the traditional meanings, or take the deck at its word even if it’s not how you normally understand the card?

For context I have a deck with keywords for upright and reversals (it’s a beautifully illustrated deck and since I have a poor memory I do like keywords), but I find that a lot of the reversals don’t agree with how I would read the card, or aren’t what I would consider to be the “inverse” of the upright meaning. I feel torn because on the one hand, the deck is telling me what it’s telling me, but on the other, were it not printed on the card I would never have thought to take it that way.
