Project 365 (144/365): The Invisible Deck

.:144/365: The Invisible Deck:.

Many people believe that the Invisible Deck is the ultimate card trick because it’s so powerful, and so instantaneous, and not only works as an amazing prediction, but even as the ultimate out for any botched card routine. Indeed, the Invisible Deck is all this and many more things, and as this video by Cyril illustrates, it is one of the most powerful tools in a card magician’s hand.

I don’t really want to explain the whole mechanics of an Invisible Deck, but I think if you watched the video, you’d gain an idea: it allows you to accurately predict any card named by a spectator by apparently turning one card from the deck over which just so happens to be the card they are thinking of. The mechanics are simple and fast, but the presentation is what validates this whole thing. Cyril came across a way of making the Invisible Deck even more amazing than it already is.

I think I’ve said enough without outright spoiling this whole thing. The video should do most of the talking, really.
