The Artifice Black Club is the first deck of its kind - the Ace of Clubs taking its rightful place as the embellished Ace instead of the spade.


An enhanced back centrepiece distinguishes this deck as something special in the Artifice line, setting it apart from the Purple, Blue and Green design, whilst retaining the signature Artifice aesthetics.


The Joker wears a mask - retaining the classic palmed-ace reveal - but revealing nothing more. He gets in, gets out and leaves no trace of his deception.


With true metallic line art, custom court cards, ace and jokers and an unsurpassed richness to the black inverted faces - this is one collectible deck you're going to have trouble keeping sealed.


Join the Club and get yours now.

<![CDATA[Tally-Ho Viper - Fan Back]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/tally-ho-black-viper-deck-playing-cards.html

We've taken the standard Tally-Ho deck and improved the look, design and feel.

With the help of the USPCC, Ellusionist has produced one of the best looking and best feeling decks of cards available. Quality control experts at USPCC sat down and went over the production process of the Tally-Ho Viper in order to find out how to improve on the quality of the final product.

The results of that meeting produced the finest cards available to consumers. Thick stock resulting in a crisp clean snap to each card. Our Air Cushion finish with a smooth-as-silk feel, allow these cards to fan and be manipulated freely and easily.

And finally a beautiful new look. It's time to go metallic.

“If Sin City had a deck... be the Shadow Masters.”

The finish is time tested classic glide and durability of the USPC air-cushion finish. Black ink gives way to the dusky, faded approach on the artwork.

Fans perfect.  Springs perfect. Edges are phenomenal.”

One Joker holds the sands of time, but this changes to a three of diamonds reveal in the other Joker’s hands. One “extra card” is double backed as a gift from Ellusionist to our cardworker friends.

Six American favorites. Not the watered-down swill you get from the juice joints down the street. This is the best Prohibition has to offer. Premium and Original.


Enjoy in Moderation.



Absinthe, the Green Fairy of spirits, has long been associated with the bohemian lifestyle, with famous drinkers including Picasso, Van Gogh, Hemingway, Oscar Wilde and Toulouse-Lautrec.

These cards embody the allure of the emerald drink, the hallucinogenic haze, sugar crystals in the night - even the Ace of Spades is modelled after the filigree of the absinthe spoon. Heavily embossed, even the box appears to have had a few drinks. Be Enchanted by the Green Fairy. Discover Absinthe.

Disparos - Spanish for 'shots', is how tequila should be consumed. Taking inspiration from the vaqueros and gunslingers of the Mexican old west, the tequila deck is a piece of history.

The block printing design and false-edge border gives these cards a rustic feel, the kind you'd expect to find regularly used in the local cantina. With embossed sugar skulls, duelling pistols and custom everything, these are shots of Tequila you won't regret in the morning. Discover Disparos.

Rebellion Rum - a Pirate's first mate, comes straight from the stronghold of Tortuga. Tropical hibiscus flowers adorn the back of the cards while the faces maintain the nautical theme.

The inside of the tuck is printed with a maritime map, while the Ace of Spades takes the form of a Parrot and its raised wings. Like all the Prohibition decks, Rebellion Rum is printed on the finest stock USPCC has available, with no expense spared in the production of these cards. Discover Rebellion.

Moonshine - the spirit of the Appalachians, kept thousands of speakeasy's in business during the '20s, and no Prohibition set would be complete without this sweet, illegal corn liquor.

The court cards feature some of history's most famous moonshiners, the box has some of the cleanest embossed printing we've ever seen and it's all rounded out by a fully custom seal.Discover Moonshine

WhiteWolf - Premium Vodka that lends itself to design as stark and crisp as the Russian Tundra. Lead designer Mike Clarke took a very different angle with this deck, giving it a modern, minimalist twist.

Half-shaded pips, single-line drawing courts and a speckled paper overprint give a truly luxury feel to an otherwise austere composition. Although the brand WhiteWolf was created just for these cards, we truly believe that its magic should be bottled. Best enjoyed below zero. Discover WhiteWolf.

52Proof - Whiskey is as American as apple pie. The giant oak tree on the front of the tuck box and seal is a symbol of the aging process for fine bourbon, as it's matured in charred oak barrels.

From the Ace of Spades right around to the back design, this oak motif continues throughout the cards, whereas the Gold Foil stamping on the outside of the tuck and luxurious red satin-finished interior makes 52Proof one of the most gorgeous boxes we've ever produced. Discover 52Proof

    <![CDATA[Infinity Playing Cards]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/infinity-playing-cards.html One of the most ambitious decks of cards in Ellusionist history, we set out to create the most unique deck of playing cards ever created.

    The tuck box of the Infinity deck overflows with a richness of design that US Playing card originally said, "Cannot be accomplished." So, we went to work directly with their pressmen, their special effects experts, research & development departments, working in unison to finally land upon a creation that is worthy of notoriety in the world of playing cards. It is important to note that only First Edition Infinity Decks had the embossed tuck boxes. The decks available now are 2nd Editions and the box is NOT embossed.

    More beautiful than we could have possibly imagined, the entire Ellusionist and US Playing Card Co. teams are unanimous in wondering if it's possible to raise the bar beyond this work.

    We hope that you will be stricken the same way we were when we first open our first sample decks.

    Fact List


    • Performance Coating Finish - engineered by Ellusionist & USPCC
    • Custom Indexes and Court Cards
    • Designed by Lee McKenzie and Jason Brumbalow
    • Aesthetically Crafted Borders, for ease of use in performance.
    • Metallic Silver and Gold Inks used throughout the deck.
    • Full custom court cards, Ace, Pips and face cards.
    • A newly-designed joker equipped with a blatant yet invisible reveal.


    Infinity pushed our own designers, as well as engineers, technicians and artists at USPCC to the absolute edge - proving these cards worthy of the name Infinity.

    " I put the Ghost ahead of all the other decks out there..." - Lonnie Dilan (card pro), L.A., CA

    "... sure to twist the mind of your spectator." - Steve Brooks, Owner, The Magic Cafe

    Designed by Ellusionist, the Bicycle Ghost Deck has a thick high grade stock, a smooth finish and an amazing design. Five solid months of design work went into the Ghost Deck.

    Latin on the Joker says: "The World Invites Deception".

    One of the Jokers is stepping on an Ace of Clubs, one Joker is not. This allows a sweet reveal for magicians. When you turn the Ace of Spades upside down, you'll notice snake heads at the base of the pip. In addition, there is a hand coming out of the top of the Ace. Whereas the Black Tiger Deck is tight, focused and aggressive, the Ghost emanates beauty and energy.

    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.

    <![CDATA[Kings Playing Cards by Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/kings-white-playing-cards-by-peter-mckinnon-and-daniel-madison.html

    In 2012, Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison collaborated on a video project in the dry lake-beds of Las Vegas, not quite realising at that time such a simple meeting of two creative minds would lead them to The KINGS deck.

    Whenever Peter and Daniel work together, waves are made and a unique creative vessel is opened. The Kings deck is the ultimate representation of their joint creative forces.

    Peter and Daniel spent a lot of time brainstorming, designing and creating their ideal deck of cards… Cards that would be fit for Kings.

     

    Click Here Click Here Click Here
     

    Peter and Daniel were meticulous and scrupulous with their requirements for the deck. They tested numerous stocks and finishes until they found and created a unique Kings finish and stock. The cards were traditionally cut to further advance gambling techniques, they are sturdy yet flexible enough for cardistry and sleight-of-hand.

    They wanted a box that would look like a block of gold - direct from the Kings share - with a deck of cards perfectly designed to cater for both minimalistic beauty and a stunning design, but it didn’t stop there…

    Peter and Daniel decided to make the Kings deck a secret weapon right out of the box… Readily stacked in Mnemonica AND fully marked so that not only would the performer be able to identify every single card in the deck by the back alone, but also have the ability perform instant Mnemonica miracles. They added a double-backer and two unique and personalised jokers, and on top of that, they lost the ad-card and replaced it with an Angle Z Gaff card.

    Two years in the making, Peter and Daniel returned to Las Vegas to celebrate their creation and film a heist that would represent their collaborative brilliance.

    When you purchase the KINGS deck, you will gain instant access to a 30 minute download featuring Peter and Daniel, teaching several tricks with your new cards & the gaffs included. A PDF will also be sent with instructions on how to learn the markings on the back of the cards.

    This is, the KINGS deck.


    NOW PLAYING

     
    SWITCH - The Kings deck is perfect for the Gambling / Magic Crossover. Due to the design being far away enough from the border, it provides you with an almost 'borderless' feel for your gambling demonstrations yet still makes traditional sleight of hand a breeze for reversed cards, doubles, and other misc sleights.



    ANGLE Z - In EVERY Kings deck, we have included a reputation making gimmick referred to as the 'Angle Z' Card. Rip off the corner, and physically melt it directly on to the back making an impossible object and a lifetime keepsake for your spectator. This free GAFF will get you some serious street cred.
     


     


    RHYTHM - Creativity comes in many forms. Perhaps you like to paint on playing cards, stack them, etch them, display them - or make music with them. Be inspired to think outside the box and see what you can come up with!

    ART OF THE KINGSMEN

    As part of the campaign for KINGS, Peter & Daniel sent out a select number of decks to our favourite Instagram users across the world. Decks were sent through the States, Canada, France, Scotland, even as far as Slovakia. These users then posted their artistic brilliance that captured the KINGS brand, with the utmost precision and creativity.


    Click Here   Tomas Hlavaty - All the way from Slovakia, Tomas is an exceptional artist with some wild penmanship and typography skills. He is well known for painting on playing cards and having an incredible precision in doing so. Tomas can be found on Instagram at tomashlavaty

    Click Here Adam Kirby - Otherwise known as 'playingcardart' in the Instagram community, takes some truly remarkable photographs. One of the best photographers around shooting our subject matter. It was a no brainer to get a deck of KINGS in his hands the second they rolled off the press. How he managed to not get the deck covered in what appears to be black tar is impressive, to say the least!

    Click Here Chris Ramsay - A fellow Canadian to our team up north! Chris is a unique and creative force constantly pumping out meaningful, and thought provoking art with playing cards. Typically, there are too many photos of his we enjoy to pick just one. He can be found on Instagram at chrisramsay52

    Click Here Benoit Pervier - All the way from France, Benoit constantly pumps out imagery that makes us laugh, think and marvel. Often clever, or a play on the actual name of the deck / cards, Benoit has an instantly recognizable style and we are thrilled to see the cards in his hands. he can be found on Instagram at benoitpervier

    Click Here Jeremy Griffith - Known as 'Lost Angelus' online -The master of levitation and 'floatation' pictures. This guy will make anything float - digitally of course ;) Aside taking some wild floating shots of decks of cards, Jeremy adds a creative twist with making those cards float in patterns and orientations that only the privy understand.

    <![CDATA[Arcane Gaff Deck and Techniques DVD]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/arcane-gaff-deck-dvd.html

    Comparing the Arcane Gaff decks to most gaff decks is like comparing sparring to cage fighting. You know that you've come to the party prepared. When you carry weaponry this engineered, the moment is about to be owned by you.

    Nearly all the individual cards were created by Greg Wilson and his secret weapon Jimmy the Grip. (Jimmy is an underground worker who prefers to remain in shadows, but is consulted in nearly all Greg's work.) With relentless attention to detail, we trashed rules and began discovering new, unexplored gaff magic. What was born was a new era in gaff magic.

    SEE ALL BLACK CARDS   SEE ALL WHITE CARDS


    FULL DVD CONTENT
    The long playing DVD walks you through the uses for these gaff cards, teaches you the must-know sleights that solidify the experience. You'll go out onto the hot streets of Austin TX where the film was shot, witness never-before-seen effects performed by Greg as he unveils the true power of gaffed card magic, in force.

    <![CDATA[Artifice Mini Decks]]> http://www.ellusionist.com/artifice-mini.html Note from Brad: please understand that the texture of the cards, paper stock and finish is NOT the quality of the larger Artifice cards. It's very difficult to get exceptional quality with MINI decks. We use a good printer in China in order to keep costs LOW (if we used USPC you'd be paying over $10 for a deck and the quality wouldn't be much better because they outsource their MINI printing), but the cards are simply not going to be the same quality as their larger cousins. I hope you understand. It's just one of the trade offs we have to put up with. Fortunately the tricks work great, card changes etc. And MINI's are so much FUN to play with!
