If Erdnase was a deck of cards, he’d be the Artifice deck. Understated yet remarkable, Artifice is the consummate gentleman at the card table, albeit with an ace up his purple sleeve.

Trust everyone, but cut the cards.

Full Overview

Think about the most exquisite, luxurious lounges you've ever been in; those oak-paneled New England rooms that have hosted generations of movers and shakers. Everything stands out and blends in at the same time. All the touches give it a glow that makes everything feel naturally beautiful.

That's what the latest edition of the Artifice deck accomplishes. The Purple Artifice doesn't need to scream, because it radiates quality; featuring a classy design, resplendent without saying a word. 

It's just the right amount of flash.

With true metallic line-art, performance coating finish, the Purple Artifice has been produced using the same technological advancements at USPCC, originally created specifically for the printing of the First Edition Artifice deck. Yet purple, the color of royalty, adds a level of detail to the deck that gives it a top-of-the-line aura.

The experienced card worker knows that moves and sleights should always be quiet, in the background. Yet he also knows that a hint of quality says much more than any words he could think up. Rocking a purple Artifice deck is the card-table equivalent of speaking softly, but carrying a big stick.

    This is one of 3 favorite decks to use. These cards move and feel like air. Its perfect for loop tricks and everyone i've shown this deck to has fallen in love with the design they've bought one themselves.
    If your looking for a great deck, no more looking, buy one of these.

    I get great reactions from these cards, especially when I plan my costume around them. the dark prestige surrounding these cards sets the stage for sublime magical effects.

    the handling is smooth and silky. out of the box they have a reflexive rebounding bendability that lends well to cardistry and flourishing. the performance finish fans perfectly, and has an almost "too slick" feeling that took a while to get used to.

    the major "con" of this deck is the lack of border on the back of the cards. I would have preferred to see these cards as a all black deck, as the heavy contrast makes it almost impossible to reverse a card unnoticed. the included db card seems almost waisted, and I would almost rather have gotten another type of gaff or just a dupe.

    overall, I love these cards, but I will be buying them in blue and green from now on.
