Hey guys, I'm trying to find the best ungimmicked invisible deck routine, i.e. with no "Rough/Smooth" arrangement. What would be your favorites?
I've found the following so far:

Singularity by Alvo Stockman:
http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1905

Riding The Wave - Scott Robinson, Trapdoor by Steve Beam Issue 47 ( Invisible Deck-type effect with single face up prediction card)

Color Wave - Scott Robinson and Steve Beam (Steve Beam's variation on Riding The Wave to make in a Brainwave type effect - odd backed prediction card), Trapdoor Issue 47

Michael Close's Ungimmicked Invisible Deck Routine - Ultimate Workers Volume 1

Paul Harris - One and Only
http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/748

Paul Harris - Invisible Rising Card - Art of Astonishment, Book 1

Any others that I may have missed?

Thanks,

Sagar

There are also mental selection routines. I use some of Joe Riding's techniques, which can be found on Mark Mason's Real World Magic DVD set. Eddie Fechter used some similar techniques, as did Karl Norman. I discussed this with Karl a number of years ago and his information was quite helpful.

Stewart James had a version with a ungimmick deck, perfect to use as an out. Not sure which volume of the James File.

As much as I like Michael Close's material (its FANTASTIC) I actually think his invisible deck routine is the worst effect in his series. I love his idea of using the stack but he performs a pass and I just don't think its covered as well as he suggests. So, You could go with the Michael Close method but work out your own sleight for getting the pass done OR..

Get a Boris Wild deck (not the bikini, the other popular one) and practice how quickly you can locate a card from a shuffled deck. If you are a card worker, reversing one card (perhaps under the spread, Lee Asher style) should be a piece of cake.

Or another thing has come to mind.

1. Palm a DB card
2. Spectator Shuffles deck (Boris Wild deck)
3. Take deck and load DB and force the DB card. Tell them not to look at the face (Duh!)
4. Flip over the pack and get them to insert the "chosen card" upside down into the pack
5. Ask a different spectator to guess what the chosen card was.
6. Proceed as above to reverse the card.

no idea if this would work. Just came into my head now

When I was at IMX in Vegas last month I saw dani daortiz teach a clever ungimmicked version of the invisible deck I felt was very strong.

Blackstone's card trick without a deck is a good one provided you work up a good routine...

I don't remember where I saw this, but there's a move called a "center reverse" (steranko's center reverse? please correct me if I'm wrong) This sleight alone could be used accomplish an ungimmicked invisible deck effect.

Ortiz's routine at IMX was great. Unfortunately I didn't get his notes and wish I had. I'd like to do his version.

I don't remember the name of the effect but I believe one of the first ungimmicked routines was in Ackerman's Here's My Card.

I can think of two nice versions of this plot: Benjamin Earl demonstrates his take on the invisible deck without any gimmick, on his Past Midnight dvds ; and Mickael Vincent also has a nice version of it, which I really like (although it is more similar to a brainwave effect), with a very pure handling.

ORTIZ routine is great, don't know how you can better it.

An ungimicked deck is on a table, you never touch it.

A card is named, spectator picks up deck and the named card is reversed.

No moves, no skill.

Dani DaOrtiz has one similar version (which I forget the name) in his DVD Utopia.

This thread is little older, but this:

may be an interesting new take on the no-R/S-ID.

It's not impromptu, but I thought of another one that fits the bill for an ungaffed/ungimmicked deck: Simon Aronson's "The Invisible Card" from Try the Impossible. It's a great way to start with MD work, too!

My favorite is The Advocate by Daniel Madison. It is a full deck in*** and it has a wonderful invisible deck AND brainwave routine. It is abvailable on Ellusionist.
