So I am looking for a cheap marked deck. I saw all the glowing reviews for the split spades mind reading deck. If there is anywhere left I can buy that I would love it. But the mechanic deck claims you can tell what every card is. Does it function well as a marked deck? Or do I have to keep looking?

Get yourself a deck of Bicycles, let's say red. Also pick up a fine tip Sharpie marker. You'll mark the deck thusly, let's say you're going to mark a 3. Turn the card face down, do you see the big white circle around the angel? Think of this as a clock and place a small nick in the 3 o'clock position with the red marker. Mark the whole deck this way, kings don't get marked. As for suits, there's an even finer white line inside the bigger line, mark it in the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions with CHaSeD or whatever works for you.

Turn the card end for end and mark the other circles in the same manner, always mark the topmost circle. I sold these decks for years at $50 a pop.

Thanks for the help. I think I saw a YouTube video describing that before.
Also did you really sell the decks at 50? Did people buy them?

Yes, they did sell. I made them for magic shops back in the 80s
