With regard to the Svengali deck I do have a certain familiarity with it. Furthermore this seems to be a good place to announce that a most worthy e-book on the subject can be seen on lybrary.com
It seems that it just went up there today. Here it is:
https://www.lybrary.com/the-long-and-the......527.html

I do know the author personally and can confirm that he is a genius of the first magnitude in matters such as this.

Of course I have noticed on this forum various people weeping and wailing that they prefer printed copies and that e-books are the end of civilisation as we know it so if you are among them you can pay a little more and obtain that here:

I heard Charles Gauci, well known international mentalist performer say at a lecture he uses Svengali at Corporate events worldwide with huge success..

Lol, just read some of this thread. I just put out a performance video with the Svengali deck. It is an UNBELIEVABLE trick. Drop the mic.

All good, except, as I said above, I don't like showing "all" the cards the same. IMO, it diminishes your ambitious card moves (which I like in your performance, BTW), and signals "it's a Svengali deck." Until then the deck is in "stealth" mode.

Liam Montier’s ADJECTIVE is a lovely effect accomplished with a altered Sven deck.

Does anyone know of a vampire-themed Svengali deck?

I have a routine that requires cards with a heart in the middle (Ace, 3,5,9)to be easily forced. Svengali works best because wherever the volunteer stops me I have both the card above and below pulled out to be placed in a card frame but I do not show the heart card until after the stake has gone through the cards and glass with the stake withdrawn.

I think that he has taught a routine with Svengali on one of his old videos
For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice.

Liam Montier also has available an ACAAN using a reverse Svengali deck. He credits David Britland's description of the effect by way of a link. Check it out.

I love using a Sven deck, and although basic it can be used to great effect if handled correctly.

It would be good to hear about some unique uses...
Kind regards
Jack
