you can say you like to use new decks, or you don' tlike using the same deck 2 times in a row. anything like that.

The easiest way to overcome this problem is to NOT USE GIMMICKED DECKS...

As simple as that....

It seems though that you aren't that expirienced (sorry if im wrong/no offense)...

But make it just look like you never switched the decks...

There is nothing wrong with using trick decks, but instead of using some unbelievable response to the question, you should strive to avoid the question altogether. The spectator should never suspect that you are using a trick deck.

To do this, you need to do one or two tricks using a completely normal deck, allowing the spectator to handle it freely. This implicity suggests that the deck is normal. Once you have sent this message, you need to be able to do an effective deck switch without letting on to the spectator that you have done one. There are many ways to do deck switches and you will have to find the one that is best suited for your style of performing.

This advice, of course, does not apply to those tricks where it is extremely obvious why you have a special deck (ie. maybe the cards are all blank), or in those circumstances where it is obvious why you need to use a "new" deck (ie. a whole bunch of cards were destroyed during the previous trick).

But, unless one of those obvious circumstances exist, please avoid the korny responses and take the time to learn an effective deck switch.
