Holla,

I just finished making a Svengali deck. Im going to add some roughing fluid to every force card. It wouldnt make it perfect but you should be able to fan it fairly well.

Hope that helps pal.

What about a pressure fan? Should work, but never tried

Adding roughing spray is the way to go as it makes a Sven into a mirage which in my opinion is much more incredible to show.

I just managed to produce Svengali Phoenix Decks in the manufactury where the cards are perfectly cut short with the perfect white border as the back design was shortened also and with correct corners. The cool thing I believe is that the Svengali Decks are marked, like my marked decks, so that you could do much more with them. Why not spreading the deck on the table and let them pick a card. With a chance of 50 % they will take a f***e card, but if not... Hey, you will know which card it is. Any ideas for that?

And I also second Brody´s opinion in just fanning the Sven, showing it for a second. All they have to see and will see is, that it is not in new deck order = well shuffled. The f***e card will go down unnoticed.

Card-Shark,

I like your idea about the marked cards. Where can one find these?

Not yet online as the cards still have to be sorted, but they will replace the ones from my website when they are available. I guess in about 2-3 weeks.

Brody's right on. It's not what you do, it's what they think you do.

The Mirage deck is just about the perfect force deck. You can fan the cards face up to show indifferent cards then fan face down and ask the spectator to touch any card. Just before they touch the card you can lift the fan and show them the indifferent cards again then lower your hand for the touch. They see indifferent cards but can only touch the force card.

All of the routines and moves with the Svengali Deck work with the Mirage. Well all that I know.

Can you deal normally with Mirage Deck?
You can let a spectator deal cards with Svengali, but not with Mirage.
