Well, unless you know every single sleight ever created I don't believe that you can just say [edited] to my statement. Of course I'm not going to show all 52 cards as the same in a regular deck. I never said that I would. I said that I could show all the cards to be the same, and I can with SOH. You might think that I'm contradicting myself with those two statements but think again. It's always been about the perceived effect you leave with your spectators. Think about that for a minute, even with a Svengali deck you're only showing half of the cards to the spectator, they just 'think' that they're seeing all of them. As for you using my post as the basis for your rant, you need to read some of my other posts. I'm in no way one of those people that say that everything needs to be done with SOH when the same thing can be done better/easier with a gimmick. I'm a big proponent of 'the best tool for the job' theory. I love my gimmicks and wouldn't think of doing a show without them. I'm also quite comfortable if someone hands me a bunch of change or a deck of cards and says "Show me something".

Right On, you know exactly what I'm talking about, but I liked the way you stated it better.
