Deck of Cards
Out of stock
SummaryI love these cards! Not the greatest for magic but great for cardistry. I’ve been obsessed with magic, cardistry, and cards for about a year and half now and I haven’t seen a deck like this.
Is it USPCC? The impressions are more like slashes than uniform dots like usual USPCC. I like the feel of them. I can honestly say that they feel like USPCC but I’m not sure if they are.
I got 2 because of the limited stock. The tuck case Is really cool and I like the double backer with the red back instead of the black. It would be cool if they did a bundle with an entirely blank deck so that you could do a deck swap and make the illusion that all of the ink got wiped away. I guess in a since this deck of cards already does that so this idea might a complete waste but you never know who might use it or not.
Over all a great deck, handles nicely and feels broken in right way.
Will by again in there are any left.
SummaryThese are AMAZING! I opened the deck I ordered, but I'm probably going to get another deck to leave unopened for collector's purposes (since they're a limited edition). My one complaint is that the tear-strip was slightly open (by one perforation) which would have lessened the value as a collector's piece. However, this is not enough to give less stars.
DeborahThis is deck is equal parts atrocious and hilarious. I can’t help but to think, now that I’m holding the deck in my hands, that this is probably the best insult to the “pretentious practitioner” I have ever witnessed. I look at this deck and laugh because I couldn’t help but to fall for such a ruse.
The whole idea driving this deck was to poke fun at the keyboard mashing, outrage fueled, card blog ranting egocentrics. The people who couldn’t help but to comment on what they wanted to change with the deck, how this deck was too similar to another one, why the idea of this deck was dumb because of how it “made them feel.” The same type of people who look at a single red circle on a canvas and say it portrays some obtuse story. The type of people who turn their nose up at a wine because it wasn’t aged for 40 years.
Even I fell for this deck as I stood shocked at the lack of fanfare given to the ace of spades. That is until I started laughing again. It’s a deck of cards. It is purpose built for no purpose at all. It gives exactly what it has sold us... Everything and nothing at the same time.
Pretentious and snobby while hilarious and self-deprecating. 5/5 worth every penny.
AdamWhen these were first advertised, I thought Ellusionist were off their rocker. Now that I have them in my hands, I can confirm that they indeed ARE off their rocker... in the best way possible. These are HILARIOUS. I bought some as joke gifts for my gaming friends, and so far the reactions have been astounding and far better than I'd expected. Worth. Every. Penny. The pretentiousness of it all is spot-on and cranks the humor up to eleven. If you can only buy one good deck of cards, this is the LAST one you should be considering. But if you've seen dozens of high-quality decks in your life and/or have played hundreds of card games over your life, this... oh boy, this deck... it's one of the funniest things you'll ever hold in your hands.

JustusAmazing Deck!!! They showed up nice and broken in already! They look and feel great!
JonSaw them loved them, then thought postage to England, aarrgghh. But I gotta have them and now I have them.
A real shock even after knowing full well what to expect, I knew they where 99.99999% blank but still got that surprise when I cracked the box open. Will take some getting used to but that is a good thing for me, like learning a new game all over again.
Stock feels great and the tuck is tough and will protect the cards.
Why folks bad mouth them I don't know, maybe jealous that they did not come up with the design, who knows or cares?
P.S Bung in three or so decks and postage and it is about the same price as I would pay to order that in England, you have Texas, we have Taxes.
SummaryThis deck is an amazing deck but at first sight it may not be much to look at but it is surely amazing
OsmunReally nice idea and beautifully constructed. BUT definitely take the words “deck of cards” off them. It really spoils the effect. What else would they be, coasters?
lonnieI’ll be honest. I thought I was going to be disappointed with these. Mainly because I said I wasn’t going to purchase anything from E. anymore after the the whole Console bugs. But then I got an email notifying me of these cards. So I placed an order and received them on a Saturday. I couldn’t wait to open them because I wanted to see if they were as boring Looking as someone had said. Well..... I did not see how they could be boring. I actually enjoyed the plain looking style. Very open. They do leave a lot of room for signing. But I wouldn’t have anyone sign these. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because instead of a double sided gaff card with two different colors, I would have rather it been a double backer of the same color the deck is. Just didn’t make sense to me since they don’t make these in red. Any-who..... I like em and will probably pick up a couple more packs just Incase I drop some cards and damage them.
