Playing cards are the primary building blocks and tools with which we create our magic. Just as an architect must carefully plan and build his structures; magicians must take equal care in structuring their effects and presentations. Architect playing cards are the perfect tribute to an art & craft that shares so much with magic.

Designed by Jared Hansen and printed by the Expert Playing Card Company, the Architect deck is truly a sight to behold. The stunning tuck box is crafted from a heavy-duty deep blue matte paper that's adorned on all sides with intricately applied silver foil.

The cards themselves have the look of a blueprint, featuring a beautiful blue & white back design with fine line work. The faces are Expert Standard with a custom DaVinci-inspired Ace of Spades and identical drawing compass Jokers. The handling is superb thanks to Damask finish, which has a medium thickness and snap with an exquisite embossing pattern and texture.

Only 5,000 of these beautiful decks will be printed.

After ogling and handling these cards for 30 minutes, I came straight here and bought a brick. I've never had a EPCC-produced deck before, but the finish on these cards is excellent. This deck has jaw-dropping looks and standard faces that make it perfect for any magician, cardist, or player. This may be my deck of the year so far.

First things first; The stock is not bicycle, the finish is clumpy, and you don't even get the slightest hint of a gaff card. I guess you could say that this Architect needs to go back to the drawing board *Insert Laugh Track Here*

love em. easily my favorite tuck box EVAR. love the ace of spades and joker design. i think the back design might look better reversed, with more blue and less white, but still look soooooo damn sexy! i could go on, but the guidelines say no profanity, and thats 95% of my vocabulary, so ill leave it at that. they're f#@%ing beautiful!

Good stock, not classic cut Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 29th, 2018
These are nice looking cards with a stiffer-than-normal stock, which I find appealing. The only thing I don't like about the cards is that they are not classicly cut, so they don't faro well. I would think if I buy a pack of cards specifically marketed to magicians and pay over $10 for it, then I can expect a deck that faros nicely. These don't, hence the 3-star review.

Okay, so there is no double backer or blank-faced card, but neither does Bicycle. I'm sure everyone has a million bicycle decks laying around without complaining.

Honestly, these are some of the nicest cards I've handled in a long time. My go-to "designer" deck is Monarchs. These almost as good. I say almost because they don't fan quite as well, or maybe they just don't look as good with the black on white contrast. However, it's been a couple months since I purchased this, and I'm still using the same deck that I opened when I first purchased the brick. Usually, I would have gone through two or three Monarchs by then.

The back design of the cards is very elegant, and it conveys a "minimalist" look. They faro right out of the box perfectly, and have the other thousand times I've faroed the deck. The edges are not frayed or discolored.

The faces are not the generic card faces, but the fonts are a little sharper and thinner, more modern looking in my opinion, but with keeping the same traditional style in mind. The finish of the cards look like linen, which adds a nice character to the deck when viewed much closer.

The tuck box is great! I love the silver. It draws attention but it's not overbearing.

I bought this on sale for half off, and I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm confident that these decks will last me a lot longer than I thought.

I purchased a brick of these during the Christmas sale, and I couldn't be happier. They faro perfectly right out of the box: a rare thing to find. They fan beautifully and the thin borders add to the elegance. The linen look and feel just top it all off. Normally I don't buy bricks of cards that aren't 808s, but this is the best deck purchase I have made in a long time. Highly recommended.

Great Deck of 54 Report this review

Well made, smooth as silk, wish a couple of gaffed cards were tossed in as well for us magic guys, but oh well. Still a great deck.

Gorgeous Normal Deck of 54 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 27th, 2016
This is a beautiful deck. Many times specialty decks will tamper with the face pips and thankfully the 'Architect' deck keeps it in the traditional form, which provides clarity in choices and doesn't distract attention from the routine at hand. The backs are white with mild blue printing and very attractive. The cards handle very well and is replacing my current carry around deck. I do wish they could have tossed in a couple of pre-gaffed cards for us magical folks as a number of modern playing card versions are doing and since it's for the most part released for the magic fraternity and they are the ones who will be predominately buying it. Kind of expensive for what's basically just a pretty deck but well made.
