My two favourites are: Tamariz´s "Mnemonicosis" and Darwin Ortiz´s "Zen Master".

But I would like also to talk a little about Jose Carrol´s memorized deck. You know that after his death, his two volumes "52 Lovers" have been reprinted in spanish in just one book called "52 Amantes A Traves Del Espejo" (52 lovers through the mirror). This new edition also included a lot of underground writtings of Jose. And the one of them is a little work about a new memorized deck of his own. Just incredible, I mean, his deck has great posibilities. If you speak spanish or read it, try to get the book.

All the best magic,

Aronson's Two Beginnings from Try The Impossible is a great real world memorized deck routine. Simple plot and does nothing nasty to the stack.

Darwin Ortiz' Remote Control from Scams and Fantasies is ideal for when you first learn a memorized stack as it doesn't matter if you have to think about it to come up with the right position. Another simple direct plot, though very similar to Al Baker's A Card at a Number.

To "the74rock": check out joyalstack.com for some great info on the stack. They have an awesome message board there too. By the way, one of my favorite tricks with the memorized deck is Rene Lavand's on page 156 of his incredible book "Magic From The Soul'.

Hi and thanks for "the voice of spain", I like it Smile

On the other hand, what I tolk about is not a routine, is a new (old) memorized deck Jose Carrol created many years ago, and not much known. His order has incredible new posibilites, and the order was made for doing easy and at the same time very deceptive, some great magic effects. I have read Tamariz, Aronson, Loyal, and they have memorized deck with a lot of posibilities, and great work on it, you know "general memorized deck effects". But Carrol´s order is prepared to do maybe the 5 best and most magical effects i´ve ever seen.

You could find it in an underground essay, published in the new reprinted edition of his book 52 Lovers (but in spanish, that´s the pity).

All the best magic,

I haven't read anything by Rene Lavand. I didn't even know he used a memorized deck. Does he have a lot of tricks in his book with one?

Sure you could find them. But more than this 5 effects, you will discover the posibilities of these five effects are just amazing.

All the best magic,

If you just leave the cards in the order they come in, it's very easy to memorize the order. It goes like this, A-K hearts, A-K clubs, A-K diamonds then A-K spades. It's awesome!

Maybe you can, but then you cannot spread the cards face-up, or even riffle the corners to have a spectator peek a card!!!

A memorized deck has to look like a really randomly shuffled deck.


By the way, which cards are you using???

Because Bicycle cards come in the following order:
A-K Hearts, A-K Clubs, K-A Diamonds, K-A Spades.

Cheers!

Two Beginnings (I perform this every chance I get)
Twice As Hard (this one always gives goose bumps!)
Past Present Future (I like to perform this with Fate because I use the same wallet index for the Future cards as I do with the Fate Charts)
Two Deck Canasta (though this can be done with a cyclical deck, I always use two stacks in Aronson order)
Histed Heisted (I recently killed with this effect in front of 350 people at the Sheraton Hotel)

I really want to learn Simon's Bait and Switch. A perfect way to ring in a memorized deck switch!

Past Present Future
Mike Close's Invisible Deck
Invisible Card (Aronson)
Everybody's Lazy
Two Beginnings
Asi Wind's AACAAN

Twice as Hard was a fave until it was supplanted by Two by Two.

Really keen to add Bait and Switch or Shuffle Tracking as ways to ring in a memdeck.
