Box Monster - Nate Kranzo
Make cards move at will.
IMAGINE: The spectator selects two cards out of the deck-- there are no forces. With no funny moves, the cards are placed back in the center of the deck. The deck is then placed back into the box. The box is closed. Nothin' fancy. Yet.
With no false motions, the card box visibly opens itself and one card is seen to slowly, visibly rise up out of the deck. Your hand grips the card gently, then pulls it out of the deck. The card is slowly turned over-- done. You've nailed card number one.
The cards are then held in your hands. The spectators eyes are fixed on your hands like a hawk. You bring the cards down to the table and begin to spread the cards slowly from right to left.
One card begins to slowly move out of the spread, towards the spectator -- while on the table. You've never seen anything like this. And your spectators haven't either-- it's downright eerie.

This effect is the best trick I've ever had that requires refills. There are several reasons why:
1: The stuff you get will make somewhere between 10 and 20 gimmicks.
2. The gimmicks last 50 or more performances.
3. You CAN do this with a borrowed deck, though newer decks are better.
4. You end clean with the deck examine-able and your hands clean (without ditches).
5. One of the easiest card tricks ever.
The five reasons above make the refills worth it: you will not have to buy many refills, and well, the trick is awesome.
I admit that I HATE gimmicks, and prefer slight of hand.
But this is an absolute jewel.
This takes the rising card trick to a new level. So simple I'm shocked it has not been done till now. Mr. Kranzo takes you through ever step and very clearly. Very nice so much so you can borrow the deck and still make this little miracle for anyone. I highly recommend this for any card worker of any level.
Tying the thread is difficult for me, they keep turning out too long and then they don't even work, I've made quite a few failed loops
