If you have forgotten about how powerful a svengali deck could be, this is the perfect opportunity to remember. What you get with your $19.95 purchase is a specially cut svengali deck. The cards are cut on all sides and corners so you can cut or dribble from any angle. This is new and great. With a standard deck of svengali cards, more often than not, your spectators will not cut the cards in a way that you can force the force card. This deck solves that problem.
With this deck you can feel comfortable allowing your spectator to do cuts from the table without fail. Of course, with any svengali deck, they cannot hold or examine the deck, but that is part of the deal with any svengali deck.
You also get a 24 minute instructional video that teaches you some basic history and basic routine. The instructional video is very clear and easy to follow. It also teaches a great ACAAN effect and a sandwich effect that I have never seen before.
Also noteworthy about this deck is that they are custom cut with great care. The long cards are not perceptively longer than the short cards. Any magician can see a svengali deck from a mile away. This deck solves that problem. While you can get a standard Bicycle svengali deck for under $10, it will not have the same utility, cuts and appearance. This deck is worth the extra couple of bucks.
