Random odds is similar plot to those who are already familiar with applications for the Toxic Force. Derek did a nice job combining this with several other methods, which makes this impossible for laypersons to wrap their brains around. It's a show-stopper as a close-up routine when you want to blow your audience away. However, I cannot fathom doing this impromptu as he does. Without going into detail there's a fair amount of set-up involved that needs to be done rather quickly. The effect can be streamlined significantly by using your calculator (pre-set), the Black Door envelope (or similar), and your own deck with a short card. Those who own this will understand exactly how these changes can be applied to the original. This way, you can get into the effect quickly and yet the end result will pack a punch equally as strong.

Agreed that there are all sorts of ways this effect could have been made easier, and perhaps it's likely that no spec would notice the difference, but I love the fact that this effectively impromptu, and you don't need any of that setup at all.
