I like using cards for mentalism. This mentalism doesn't hit as hard as other direct reveals of personal info. But for me, it hits them so much harder than most card effects. So strangely, I usually have a way of doing something with a special deck etc....., or the same thing with a regular deck. If you see "the devil's picture book" video by D. Brown, you will see what will be very useful for regular card workers.
How you talk about what you are doing, sets the tone in the spectator's mind as to whether you are using a gaff deck or not.
His use of a one way deck is classic. Because of how he TALKS about what he will do, the spectator has no suspicion of a gaff deck.
Priceless. Again this has very good applications to regular card magic. also, too many avoid gaff decks due to a lack of a good sloppy and effective switch, with calm misdirection.

I used to have a deck with 1 long card in it and I want to buy another, does anyone know what that deck is called please?

I have never heard of that exact deck, but had a friend who liked using a long card so I made him one. It was a lot of work o get one just right and I soon figured out it would have been much simpler to buy a "Short Deck" and replace one card with one from a regular deck (which also gives you a deck with an equally impressive "short card" function). https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/9291 or https://www.card-shark.de/index.cfm?page......rtID=269 (I use the Phoenix Brand Cards).
