You might be able to find that you won't need to switch anything, if you put in the proper training and preparation. One thing that many stack workers do is invest time in learning versions of classic tricks (eg: Triumph, ACR, etc.) that don't alter the stack, which means they get to have their cake and eat it too. My personal experience is that if the tricks are awesome, people won't complain unless they think it matters, and unless the trick screams "Deck Switch" (such as with a colour-changing deck or similar) then there may be little to worry about. I actually used to do three card tricks in a kids show, and they each required their own deck -- or, more appropriately, I required the three decks to pull them off -- because I hadn't yet learned how to do them all from the same deck (ie: secretly controlling a force card on the fly). The tricks were good and everything, but even though nobody ever pointed it out, the more card magic I learned, the more artless it felt. It's also worth pointing out that these were parlour-style shows. If you're openly switching decks in an impromptu and/or close-up situation? Lame. [/quote]
