I think that its a great principle and could be exploited/ experimented with
ive used within card demos etc but never really as amentalist feat.

I love the blank Phil Deck because it leaves a lot of room for whatever you want to do. I have adapted a blank deck for a Bible Book effect. Seems it will apply more to mentalism than card effects IMHO. I made a couple decks with different predictions so I could do a switch and repeat the effect. Some of the strongest magic I know for the money.

My stand-up opener is Paul Hallas' 'The Hunger' effect for which I utilise a blank Phil deck.

The Hallas routine can be found on page 7 of his 'TOTAT Rides Again' book. It is a great opener and the presentation is very entertaining (although I have forsaken Paul's peaches for a pineapple!) 'The Hunger' is based in turn on a Peter Kane presentation and in his write up Paul also mentions that Goldstein's 'Final Fred' (which is what the Phil deck is) from his 1989 Blackpool lecture notes would be a particularly suitable method. It all comes full circle...

The 'TOTAT Rides Again' book should be in all mentalist's libraries and contains a wealth of practical, performable, entertaining mentalism. There are at least half-a-dozen items in there that have been part of my working repertoire over the years and indeed several still are.
