There are some key characteristics that make a good deck of cards. It should include an user-friendly reader system. It should have sufficient-sized markings along the long edges. The markings must be disguised sufficiently to look like normal.
The Ultimate Marked Deck, formerly known as Rider Back Marked Deck, is the most popular deck available to magicians today. It was manufactured in an extremely limited print run in blue and red, and it’s the only deck that’s on this list to be manufactured featuring the iconic Rider Back design by The United States Playing Cards Company (USPCC).
This marked deck comes with a free online tutorial video created by Rick Lax. The tutorial lasts 48 minutes and covers everything you need to learn about making the most of your new markings including how to glimpse them in the shadows of other moves.
Garrett Thomas, one the deck’s creators is featured in the video. He shows you how to perform some incredible tricks using the markings. He concentrates on Dai Vernon’s “The Trick That’s Hard to be explained” and other powerful and practical ways to use the markings in your magic routines.
This marked deck is also more deceiving than other decks because it has markings in two different locations on the front of the card and reverse. This makes it less likely that people will be able to find it or even discover it through the “riffle test” which is a method of taking the deck to the cinema.
Many people have asked what makes this deck distinct from other decks available on the market. First, you should note that the markings on this deck may be smaller than other marked decks. This means you’ll require slightly more sharper eyes than on other decks. The smaller size of the marks allows for unique applications and benefits that other decks with markings don’t offer.
This deck also has jet black printing which is an excellent benefit in low-light conditions. This also gives this deck a sleek appearance that is often desired by magicians.
The decks are also designed in a manner that allows them to be easily used in conjunction with a deck of cards (the Boris Wild Memorized Deck) to produce more spectacular effects. Professional magicians will find this deck beneficial as it permits them to add an element of improvised magic to their work that is easy to see and comprehend.
It is a great choice for anyone looking to learn to read card markings or are searching for a deck which can be used in more complex and advanced routines.
