Perfection was just the beginning. The Artifice Playing cards are now adorned with a functional border on the back that allow anyone to perform 'reversed' card effects and improve upon the deceptiveness of your sleights.
Full OverviewPerfection was only the first step. Enter, the next generation of Artifice. Second Edition: Blue. Due to overwhelming demand, the functional border on the back was added to improve upon the deceptiveness of sleights requiring the alignment of cards, such as a Push Off Double or Elmsley count.
The dark psychology of artifice just got a massive upgrade.

I ordered these cards off of Ellusionist, through Amazon and they are amazing. They are very, very smooth, but yet they are still really easy to control. If you are practicing sleight of hand or just doing street magic, these are the cards for you!
The deck of cards are amazing I just love the Design as Well as the reveal by the jokers and it's also an improved version of the old artifice decks because you couldn't turn cards over without seeing it but now that they have the white borders it's easier to perform tricks without having to switch decks of cards so if you want cards that are good for everything the artfice deck is the one for that the only thing i wish you would have included was more joker reveals like 3 or 4 so you could force different cards. Overall Great Job
Very good cards although the back design is a little bit too straight forward, but if you are an artifice fan you should get one.
