I wouldn't suggest thinking of, "what's a good gimic to use?." I'd think, "What is the effect I want to achieve?" By using the second choice, you can then put slights and gimics together to acheive your goal. Or, just post what you're thinking of doing and perhaps someone here will know of an effect you can purchase.

thats what I was gonna say..

- Optical Wallet by JB Magic (There's a knock-off out there called "Melt Down" or something like that; but it's not as well-made. If you can't find the real deal, I'd skip it.) A note: This is a magical effect and the strength of it lies entirely upon the strength of your presentation and not on any needed skill.

You need to determine what kind of illusion you're looking for, (magic, mentalism, etc.), and what would best suit you. I don't know if you're wanting something easy to do that requires little skill or something easy to carry around that requires little else. I don't know what else you're doing or who your audience will be. These are factors worth considering, lest you purchase a cool trick with carry-around potential that uses some kind of gimmickry that ends up collecting dust on your shelf or that you end up exposing due to poor performance.

There are some mentalism-type effects with cards that are easily carried and are easily performed due to what we'll call "help from the cards themselves." Those I would recommend:

- My Favorite King
- The Princess Card Trick
