Brain Storm Card Magic Set By John Guastaferro is one of the best set in card magic, clever methods and amazing effects, you can do almost all the effect with a regular decks of cards, my highest recomedation

Another recommendation for "Brainstorm" from me. The effects are VERY hard-hitting and almost all of them are done using a regular deck.

Apart from my Lost Works of Bro. John Hamman, Guasteferro's Brainstorm DVDs are my favourites!

Brainstorm - The Creative Card Magic of John Guastaferro, features some of John's finest card creations, highlighting a unique blend of creative presentations, diabolical methods and maximum entertainment value. Most of these effects can be done strolling, without the need for tables or lengthy set up, and are within the reach of the average magician.

I want to add one more thing.
Some effects such as party animal or jazz fusion use some diffent cards, but you don't need this diffent card, for example, party animal is a in the hands triumph effect and as a kicker the free selection card at the end change the back for a Budweiser back but you if you are performing with a red deck you can use a blue card for the kicker ending, another example is jazz fusion that is a trasposition effect and at the end John trasform the transposed cards for 4 cards with a question mark, but you can trasform the cards for the aces.

Much of the stuff uses a regular deck. Some like Party Animal (mentioned above) will need a stranger card, and some like Snowball Aces require a gaffed deck to be made up, most of it uses normal cards. Many can be easily adapted to using no table. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I feel this set of DVDs is over-rated.
The material in it are good, no doubt about it...but not as great or godly as people say it is...

He couldn't answer your question because he's wrong.

John's Brainstorm DVD set contain some of the most "workable" card magic ever. Killer material!

And John can entertain. He gets the audience on his side and never loses them!
