The first edition of Artifice Playing Cards attained perfection, elegance and commanded attention. But you wanted more and we're here to prove to you that we're always listening.

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 Overview

Perfection 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.

    these cards receive some of the best reactions of all of the decks I've used in performance. a very professional look to a brilliantly made deck of cards. faro out-of-box, fan pretty well, bright brilliant flourishes, and solidly durable. these are also my go-to cards for table work, they carry a rich prestige that commands attention and respect.

    now with a border on the backs, the only thing I didn't like about the V1.

    These playing cards are hands down my favorite. I enjoy a lot of other Ellusionist's decks but these take the cake. They glide so smoothly, fan like nothing else, and their color is ultra brilliant. I always find myself using these cards more then any other deck I own.

    Was a great product, I was happy with the quality it came in and was nice and sleek, the only con about it was the case was easily ripped in my pocket (on of the top corners) but otherwise, I would by it twice. It's also a perfect gift for young magicians!

    I love the color green and when i saw that artifice had a emerald color deck, I had to have them... The design of the deck is amazing, i find myself staring at them more than i do playing with them... This is a professional grade deck... Period... oh and did i mention the joker... I fit my look around the joker... thats all i have to say for you to understand... The only downside is the texture of the box... easily scratches... besides that... Marvelous!

    My 10yr old started getting into card magic(like his dad). I surprised him with his very first deck of cards from Ellusionist. He was so amazed when he opened these up. Such an awesome deck.

    The MOST Beautiful cards ever. I love the green color. I literally built my whole magician "theme" around these cards. (Green Sponge balls, Green Rope, Etc) I always get a gasp from someone who sees me pull these babies out of my pocket.

    Awesome deck, look is beautiful, handling is like any UCPS printed deck. Really good and really worth the price.

    They are so sleek and fancy, it's unbelievable !
    The cheapest of all the Artifice decks but one of the best, pick up a brick if you can :D
    Plus they handle like butter...

    Great deck for just about anything. I like the look of the Artifice Emerald V2 deck and the feel of it. The color of the decks is mainly preference, it is a nice green color and the design on the cards look great. One thing that others might not like about the deck is that it has a wider white border compared to other decks. They glide very well making it a great deck for fanning. So far this is one of my favorite decks compared to any other decks that I own, and I would recommend any Artifice deck to anyone.

    OK cards, bought them for my son. Will say since the faces are unique these can't be used for duplicates/switches, which make the white borders an eyesore for me. Rather have the purple deck over these, any day.
