The 8 Kings stack is great, and can be used in substitution of any other cyclical stack (i.e. Stebbins, new deck).

Is there a list of what I can do with it?? I know it is very general and are there some specific ones which I can look up? preferably self working ones, or easy sleights

My favorite trick using a cyclical stack is CAANY by Chris Mayhew, it has a great impact to the spectators.

For other tricks, check out Karl Fulves Self Working Tricks books, these have some tricks utilizing the cyclical deck order.

Many of the tricks that can be done with a Si Stebbins stack can be done with the Eight Kings stack. Also, in Mulholland's Book of Magic by John Mulholland there is a full chapter on tricks with the Hungry !@#$%^& Stack. Most of them can be done with the Eight Kings Stack.

There are many sequential stacks, each with its advantages and disadvantages. You can read what many have found to be a useful overview here. It includes those stacks mentioned above, along with several others.
