If you love card magic then you owe it to yourself to learn from 1 of the best and buy these DVDs.
Chock-full of card goodness, you can see marlo in action and learn some extraordinary card effects
and sleights. Also included on The Cardician is a short documentary that is a real treat to see and
hear Marlo talk about the magic he loves.
These DVDs have a lot of good stuff on them. Many of the effects take time to learn and don't get
that big a reaction. Of all the material on the DVDs, I picked up about half of it. One thing about
the snap change I dont' get is that after you do the snap change, both cards are still in your hand;
Marlo offers no suggestion to hide the card, to lap it or anything.
Overall, the dvds are
pretty good. Worth getting just because Marlo is in it.
I think his books are badass if you can
find them used anywhere.
This is perhaps one of the best investments in the shop. The Cardician features lots of techniques
and some routines and the Legend is mostly routines and some techniques. I like the Cardician
better. By the way most of the stuff you see in the demo video is from the Cardician.
I must say that this is a great DVD combo. Especially the Cardician. If you're into poker stuff and
gambling, I highly recommend picking up this combo.
Note that these DVDs are on the difficult
side. You're expected to know DLs, undercuts, lifts, etc.
My favourite effect out of the entire
combo is Aces to The Top.
I really enjoyed the DVDs. I found the stories and interviews very
interesting and amusing.
Well, here's the thing about this movie. Some stuff I use all the time, and it's a big mistake to
pass it up. The other stuff I'd never use. So it's good, but the price is a little steep. The tricks
that I liked were the ones that you could simply do in any routine, but the ones I didn't like are
moves specifically made for long bulky routines where the moves can't be used elsewhere. It has some
of both. It the end, I don't regret having gotten it.
These videos combined with the revolutionary card technique book make a great set to study.
before you buy that he doesn't explain the routines or moves very thouroughly in the videos.
are expected to know what he means by,
"double undercut", or "outjog the card" etc.
slow the DVD, or pause it,
but I think this DVD is more for people who are already comfortable
with cards, and want to experience Ed do his thing.
If you are looking to add some boost to your card work buy this combo. Marlo teaches you all his
sleights in detail. This is not for beginners, but definitely for those who work with cards alot.
Cause with this combo get ready to practice, practice, practice.
These DVD's are amazing! Some of the techniques in here are drop dead amazing! Ed Marlo Teaches some
amazing stuff on these! Some of my favorites are - 2nd Deal, Spectator Cuts The Aces, Aces To The
Top, Ace Of Spades Trick, Snap Deal. Even Though They take practice it is well worth it! If you are
an avid card worker buy these!
I cannot recommed this combo enough! The effects performed by Marlo are amazing! I still can't get
over "The Second Deal"! Not only does Marlo explain some of his flawless effects but you get to see
him in action first and just to see him perform is amazing enough. I add a few of the effects from
the DVD's to my routines and it has heightened the reactions. If I had to choose a couple that are
sure-fire effects, effects that would give you the reactions you'll never forget, they would be
"Dribble Control Sandwich" and "The Ace of Spades Trick". If you're a serious card worker and want
to learn from the best, I highly recommend buying this combo from Penguin.
