Thanks guys lots of great info here.

Card-Shark do you have a video or photo of this deck?

also does anyone know what an electric deck is? Is it a joke shocking deck or something like that? If can't reveal here please PM me, I saw one on ebay for $2, I want to know what it is before I bid.

Split Deck and CardToon (as mentioned earlier) are both good. Also... Pop-Eyed Popper Deck, Mene Tekel Deck, Mirage Deck, Chimera Deck, Kaleidoscope Deck and Neo Deck.

Wow that Jurassic deck is pretty cool. But $30 is a bit pricey for me. I'll have to wait a while to get it.

Get a "professional" invisible deck for $6 - 8 .... you'll be glad you did. I use mine all the time.

Jim what exactly is a "professional" invisible deck? I bought an invisible deck that is made from a bicycle deck for about $8.95. Is that one a professional deck?

I Just got Cardtoon and a rising deck. Great decks. Does anyone use a different method of selecting a card in Cardtoon than just to say name a card? If so can you please PM me your method. Thanks

I was on ebay looking to buy a couple of gaffed decks but I'm not sure what deck I should get next. I have Brainwave, Invisible Deck, Svengali, Stripper.
Without revealing how they work, can anyone suggest some decks, and describe the effects.

I'm biased because I love the stripper deck. There must be thousands of effects you can do with it along with all the ones you can do with an ungaffed deck, too.

At this point, you may benefit more by shelling out a few extra dollars for a DVD or book of basic card magic you can do with a REGULAR deck. From then on, the only question you'll have to ask is red or blue?

Good point,then after performing with regular decks, a simple switch for a "gaff card or deck" will totally fry them.

It's more about starting a deck collection. I do great with a regular deck and have read and I am reading various books on cards. But this topic is on "Trick Decks" and which ones to collect. Thanks.

Ever considered 'The Lone Stranger'? Pretty good and you don't see it that often.

Okay deck update... I just got a Cheek to cheek deck (which I love) and a "Deland's Automatic Playing Cards" deck (which I'm not too sure about yet) Anyone using that one let me know if it was a bad choice.

The Delands deck is really great if you riffle the deck and look at the backs.
Don't forget the popcorns!

As a "one trick" deck, I like Cardtoon.


cardtoon is brilliant. At first is wasn't so sure about the effectand then tried itout and it always goes down a storm with adults and kids alike! Also, the phil deck is ok but out the two cardtoon gets a much stronger surprise!

The Phil is good, but do use numbers instead of those names. Names are silly, numbers are much stronger. Say that you numbered the cards not 'aces of spades = 1, 2 of spades = 2, et cetera', but say that you numbered the cards in a subliminal / subconscious way that matches our Western way of thinking, that matches our psychology.
