I'm a big fan of Oz's 21st Century Phantom. I think it could play as one of the strongest mental pieces you could do, but I haven't actually performed it, so I can't attest to reactions. I need to break it out one day.



I should pick that one up. I really like the presentation of that one, especially after reading the Magician and the Card Sharp and finding out just how Dai Vernon eeked out a living during the depression years.

How practical is it?

3 in the Pocket... simple, so simple, and works so great. Never fails and I always get excellent reactions with it.

It takes a while to make up the end results. You also will need to carry around a few business card magnets, which can get heavy, if you're carrying around more than a dozen. Other than that, you pretty much will need to devote a pocket too it. It seems a little cumbersome, but it plays really well. Oz carries the material around any time he's doing walk around, so it can't be too bad.

Thought transmitter is pretty versatile. However, I'm not sure I'd say it is my favourite effect. I'd probably go with Maven's Destiny (or Desire, I'm not sure what it is called anymore, it's in prism though). I use that for lie detection a lot, very hard hitting.

Yah, I wouldn't say it's my favorite. I still like Powerball 60 more, but it does seem pretty strong and I enjoy performing it for people. I especially like the fact that they can write ANYTHING that they want...they aren't limited to words, or numbers, or symbols...whatever pops into their head they can go ahead and write.

Derren Browns Plerophoria. So beautiful, and you can make it so meaningful
