What makes a deck "advanced"?

I recently stumbled across a deck in a shop that I have never heard of, and was immediately entranced by it – The Mary-El Tarot by Marie White (2nd edition). I personally like to let my intuition feed off the artwork first and have aways favored more creative decks that don't look exactly like the Rider-Waite. Mary-El was a really good fit for this reason (and because the artwork style resonated with me a lot). Out of curiosity, I looked it up here to see what people's opinions were and found multiple comments saying it was advanced. It got me thinking,

What makes a deck "advanced"? Or alternatively, good for beginners?

If you asked me, I'd say a beginner should go with whatever feels right. Everyone has their own style and way of doing things, so why discourage someone from getting a deck that has less traditional imagery? Is this just a suggestion to learn things "by the book" first before expanding? I know there are a lot of different schools of thought in this subreddit, and am curious as to your opinions.
