Dr. JK,
You mention the effects in Mnemonica by Juan Tamariz is compatible with other stacks, not just Mnemonica. Is the same true with the Simon Aronson book(s)?
I've recently started MemDeck work for the fun of it while I have some time on my hands. I'm a solid 30 cards into Mnemonica stack and working on the last 22 this week, that's why I ask.

Yes, it's absolutely true. Not all tricks in Aronson's books are compatible with Mnemonica, but many directly translate. Good for you putting in the work - it will pay big dividends!

Folks generally use the phrase "stack independent" to talk about memdeck effects that do not require one particular stack. Both the Aronson and Mnemonica books have many great stack independent effects, as well as stack dependent effects.

Yesterday I poured myself a Smithwick's Red Ale and pulled Approaching Magic off the shelf and headed outside.

Good times.
