I saw these cards on Card-Shark's site but am surprised not to have found any comments about them, especially as these cards are by Luke Jermay.

Does anyone know about the cards and the routines given?

I saw a video of it where they show a red backed deck, the magician shows that the deck is made of alphabet cards, mentioning that since there are 26 letters and 52 cards, there are 2 of each letter. The spectator then names the name "Paula", the magician then goes through and removes the letters P-A-U-L-A and then flips them face down to show that they all have blue backs.

Yes, you do. A little audience management though.

There's the alpha deck ( normal thickness) by Jermay and the Alphawave which are double decker thickness.
Both around the same price $30.00. I'd like to hear more.

I didn't get this (yet), because if I were to design an effect with real powers I wouldn't perform like this.

If I could predict your word, I wouldn't get all the letters mixed up and put in a different coloured deck, I would predict it and reveal it in a more interesting way.
This does seem like a good solution to a bit of a problem, I just think ultimately there are better ways to do similar things.

I just saw the video you mentioned and I wonder how in the world you can show the 5 blue backs since there's only one red-backed A. I mean in real life, the video may be a deceit.
