Without giving any secrets away, before you start the trick, can you spread the cards FU on the table to show quickly or spread maybe half the deck.


Yes, you spread thru the deck face up as you remove the Jokers from the deck allowing the spectators to see what appears to be a normal mixed deck.

Devin, is there any improvement on the PDF you already published in the past? Besides getting the deck together of course.

No, the routine supplied with the deck is what I published. If you buy the PDF and then the cards needed to make the trick, it will cost you about the same as buying the deck from me, plus I pay postage worldwide. The PDF was mainly written so people overseas could make a deck for their language or make the deck in a certain back design. I supply the deck professionally made in Bicycle backs for English spellings of the cards.

Due to popular demand, I will be supplying the deck in Jumbo size for stage use in a few weeks.

Hi All,

I just returned from out-of-town and the chance to perform this for my wife (she's my ultimate gauge for testing a new effect or routine) and she asked me to "do it again!" Now, you have to understand that the only time she asks me to repeat a trick is if she is really thinks it's great. Otherwise she usually says something like, "that was nice." Given her track record with knowing what will or will not go over well with an audience, I have to say this will surely be a hit with your audiences. This is a no brainer.

Regards, Steve

If you want this, do yourself a favor and don't buy the PDF from Lybrary.

Buy it direct from Devin. What he says above is true! I bought the PDF.

I performed this effect at a college event I was booked at mid-day today. I did a stage performance followed by strolling magic. One of the strolling effects I did was this one, and the response I received was VERY impressive. The look in the spectators' eyes and comments like "how the _ _ _ _ did you do that?" was a true indicatior of the impact. This effect has a permanent place in my strolling and closeup play list.

By the way.......if I had the Jumbo size that Devin is working on, I would have performed this from the stage for sure. As soon as the jumbo size is available, I will order one for sure

I bought the PDF file at Lybrary.com and made my own deck. Less than 30 minutes to prepare and learn. I am looking forward to using it in my restaurant work.

When I made this post, all I really meant was that you are not going to save any money by buying the PDF.

The only advantage to buying the PDF would be instant gratification if you have what you need, and you probably do!

This appears to be the same trick as Thirteen by JB magic but instead cf counting cards you are spelling the names. Thanks to some Café members I bought the PDF as I had the necessary items to make the trick up. I would say most magicians have what is needed. Since this deck can only be used for this one trick you don't really need bicycle cards, any cards will work.

Hey everyone, the PDF has been updated at Lybrary. If you bought this you can download it again and get the new update. Here is what is included in the expanded edition. This is a free update.

This ebook also explains how you can make the deck up in jumbo cards for stage work and includes a special handling for jumbo cards. The routine is a bit different from that shown in the videos and does away with the magician cutting the cards. The jumbo version is actually more amazing and impossible looking the smaller version.

The directions also explain how to make this deck up to work in most any foreign language, the deck that is sold on the market for $25.00 is designed for English spelling of the cards. Once you learn how the deck works, you can easily construct a deck to work in most any language. In the directions there is a chart showing how to make the deck up in French.

For those who wish to do this trick in German, Alexander de Cova has come up with a brilliant solution and explains how you can make a deck to work in the German language.

BONUS MATERIAL: The Auto Spell deck is touted as a no memory effect, but for magicians willing to utilize some very easy memorization, then magician, Michael Daniels shows how to construct the deck so the performer REVEALS the name of the selected without asking the participant. The memory work is extremely easy and within the grasp of most magicians.

You can make his deck and not use any memory, but for those willing to utilize his technique, then you will make this killer effect even stronger. Plus using his technique will allow you to use the deck for other tricks and how you do this is explained in this ebook.

Thanks to Dorian Caudal for his french chart. If anyone buys this and comes up with detailed information for other languages please send me a PM with the information, such as Spanish and I will add it to the PDF with credit to you.

Hi All,

I just finished reading the revised PDF and have to say that the addition of Michael Daniels is excellent. As the copy says, you can reveal the name of the card before the volunteer announces it (in case you want to perform this as a mentalism effect). The amount of memory work is quite small.

The handling of the jumbo card version is simple and, I believe, appears more amazing than cutting the deck as performed in the original. I will try that handling with my regular deck to see what kind of reaction it gets.

Thanks, Devin, for the additional revisions to "Auto Spell Deck."

Regards, Steve

Yes, the jumbo deck version is more amazing and can be done with a regular deck of cards too. The response is even more amazing, and doing everything with your back turned and taking the cards behind your back, makes this appear even more impossible. You now have three ways to do this, and all are very strong and will leave people shaking their heads in disbelief.

Thanks Devin for adding my variation to the Auto-Spell Deck ebook.

Glad you like it Steve.

I should point out that my deck only works in English. The memory work involved is very small - it should only take five minutes to master.

I bought the PDF from Lybrary and made this up pretty quickly. Like so much of Devin's work, it is cleverly designed and easy to do. And it's also great that it has sparked some additional worthwhile ideas.

I received the updated version, nice little addition of Michael Daniels, if you want to present this effect in a more "mentalist" way (although several memdeck allow you to do that, with a normal deck).
Thanks for this update Devin, very generous !

Another update on the PDF at Lybrary, Marty Kaplan supplied me with details on how to make up the deck in Spanish and this is now in the PDF. If you do performances in some of the cities with a lot of Spanish speaking citizens in Southern Fl, NV, TX, NM,AZ and CA, then you may find it worthwhile to make up a deck that works for your Spanish speaking audiences.
