"If you are at all curious about Memorized Deck work, you need to read 'Requiem'... interesting, informative, and inspirational." -Dan Harlan

Professionals all over the world understand the devastating impact that a memorized deck can have on their audiences. It's a tool with unlimited potential - it allows for a myriad of immaculately clean card locations, revelations, and more.

But, until now, it's been a difficult tool to master.

Requiem - Two Innovative Approaches to the "Memorized" Deck puts the incredible world of memorized deck work within ANYONE'S reach. Not only that, but it gives you the building blocks to create your own CUSTOMIZED memorized stack.

Because no two minds work alike this eBook contains two VERY different stack systems that allow you to know the position of any card and the card at any position in what passes as a thoroughly shuffled deck.

The Base Stack is the first system explained and it functions as an algorithmic stack - meaning that some basic math guides you to the information that you need.

One of the most interesting features of this stack is that it's constructed on a set of "bases". As long as you can effective manage these "bases" you can place them in ANY sequence that you want. As strange as it sounds, this means that there are over 6.2 BILLION permutations to the standard Base Stack that require only one slight mental adjustment. This stack is literally a malleable chameleon that you can make your own.

The Panacea Stack is the second system shared and it's truly the LAMBORGHINI of all such stacks! No doubt most readers will consider this to be the EASIEST and MOST EXCITING stack ever created.

Within MINUTES of learning the system you'll INSTANTLY know the value of the card at any position (and vice versa). Then after choosing one of the five "Suit Randomizing Systems" explained you'll be fully up and running and well on your way to complete mastery.

Once the system is completely understood it requires NO MATH because the entire stack is built on RELATIONSHIPS and EASILY acquired mnemonics.


Possibly the most exciting aspect of the Panacea Stack is that with just a bit more effort you'll find it easy to drop "the rules" and move forward to GENUINE memorization - hands down THE BEST way to leverage a memorized stack.

The miracles possible with a memorized deck have NEVER been so attainable!

NOTE: This expanded SECOND EDITION of Requiem includes a new supplement that's packed FULL of even more information, tips, and alternative handling options to make sure that you get the most out of these systems. This supplement will appear as a SEPARATE FILE on the download page.

Here's some praise that Requiem has received:

"[The Panacea Stack] has it all! It's rigorously examine-able. It's easy. Within minutes of processing this system, I could name any card at any number and vice versa.... It makes so much sense that memorizing it is easy. And it's perfect for face up dealing and card calling.... this is the best memorized deck system I've ever seen." -ProfessorJinksy (member of The Magic Cafe)

"[The Panacea Stack] is really powerful. A nine year old child could have the basics mastered in 10 or 15 minutes. I taught my wife in less time, while driving, and she was able to tell me the location of almost every card in the deck.

[Then] I set the deck up in order and ribbon spread it for some close friends. I told them that there was a stack and after a few minutes they still couldn't figure it out. That's after they knew it was in a stack.

That's a lot of power for very little work. This is really something special."
-Joshua Burch

"[Requiem] features a breathtakingly professional writing style and really delivers! [The Panacea Stack] is a notch better disguised than the QuickerStack at a manageable effort - that's surely what many users were looking for! Keep up the nice thinking Drew!" -Felix Schellenberg

"Drew has made up [the Panacea Stack] to appeal to whatever works best for you. It's one stack with a few different ways to work it. I've come to the conclusion that I'm not wired for mem-deck work, but with Drew's stack and some work, I think I'll get there. Drew has really put a lot of work into this stack and it shows." -Tom G (member of The Magic Cafe)

"The Panacea system is really pretty great. After reading through the system, almost immediately you can name the card value at any number. Then, after choosing a suit order system (there are five in the book), you can name any card's position and vice versa. All in all, a very cool approach and I can see myself using it." -Last Laugh (member of The Magic Cafe)

"The Base Stack gives you a framework for developing your own type of a non-tetradistic stack. It's a new approach for a math based stack - IMHO an uncut diamond for stack aficionados." - Dr. Hans-Christian Solka

"[The Panacea Stack] is the best, fastest, and easiest full deck stack I've learned so far. Cannot recommend it enough, INSTANT buy." -Yehonatan Yosefi

I just want to start off by saying that I've used multiple memorized deck before starting with the si stebbin then decided to try out mnemonica. Then I saw this and decided to get it to see if I find some cool things in here. I was VERY surprised at how good it is. If you're looking for a memorized deck that isn't too difficult, THIS IS THE ONE!!! Trust me, you HAVE to try this out. As you know memorized decks are very useful but some in the past are either too difficult or won't past inspection. Your audience wouldn't suspect a thing looking through the deck and yet you are able to every single card and any position and vis versa. The pdf is very clear and very in depth with A LOT of different ideas and ways of memorizing. Drew is a very helpful and nice person that I recommend whoever has a question contact him, he will help you out! To end this off, if you're not sure if you should get this or not, I recommend you take go for it and you will never regret it!

BRILLIANT- GROUND BREAKING!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 16th, 2016
This little book is pretty ground breaking and makes what was ONCE a hard to achieve thing to accomplish now pretty easy (still takes practice but will be doing it on its basic form within hour or less) for most any level magician. Drew is an excellent teacher and he is there to contact when you get this book to answer all questions. RARE AND FAIR he is so thumbs up for that! He provides also a supplement book with this so dont forget it in your box. You will have 2 pdfs. BOTH are excellent and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS to all who have wanted to do the miracles that once were a pretty intimidating skill. Opens up tons of ideas to further along the work of memorized stacks!! BUY!!!!!!!!!

Big work, but not useful for everybody. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 19th, 2016
First, I must say that I was very interested in all which concerns the "memorized deck" and that I have read and seen a lot of things on this subject. So, I hesitated a long time before buying this download. But the temptation and the curiosity have won.
If you already know a "memorized deck" and you are satisfied with it, this download is not for you and it will bring you nothing more.
If you know no "memorized deck" or if your "memorized deck" doesn't satisfy you because you have difficulties to learn it or to remember it, this is perhaps for you for the "Panacea deck" (I think the base stack is too complicated to learn), which must be, I think, rather easy to learn and to rembember. But I say "perhaps" because there are already other existing "memorized" decks with the same philosophy, which can be more interesting. By saying that, I think above all to the "Quicker stack" by Doug Dyment. It is the stack I use and I think that the "Quicker stack" is the easiest stack to learn and to remember.

Amazing personalized stack Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 15th, 2016
Drew took out the memory part out of the memorized deck and made it intuitive, this will make you find a full deck stack that fits you. And the best part? It is very deceptive, even for magicians.

Highly recommended.
