I'm thinking of buying the lone stranger, but I'm afraid it's only a simple variation of the mene tekel deck (which I make myself). Can someone tell me a bit more about the lone stranger? Could be in a pm.

It sounds like you and I are kind of on the same wavelength, JustLoco. I also like to collect and mess around with different gaffed decks. People can say what they will, but the decks are fun!

The Deland's deck is almost useless to perform with, I'd say. This is just my opinion. I actually like the deck because it's so marked and hacked up. But the main card markings on the back stick out like a sore thumb, the deck has been around for years and was included in a lot of magic sets from Adams from the past 50 years, so I think it's got a pretty high recognition rate, and while it supposedly has 11,000 marks; I think 10948 of those are meaningless once you shuffle the deck! I think it's a fun deck though, and I like to use it to mess around with what it can do, kind of like a 'practice deck' if you will.

Kind of on the same topic but not, what's the best source for stacks and learning to use them? I've got several books on card magic, but I haven't come across anything that specifically lists things like the Stebbins stack and what have you. If there's a book out there, I'd love to get it.

I just received The Lone Stranger. It looks great, I don't think it will let me down.

Check out the Card Cognition Deck. I use it and like it. Easy to do, fun to perform, can be repeated. http://www.trickshopmagic.com/cardcognit......-reviews
