Svengali Deck (Bicycle) (Blue) You will be able to perform amazing feats of card magic with this normal looking Bicycle deck.
Price: $7.50
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

Please Note: Currently, we are not able to fill requests for custom cards in the Svengali Deck.

A card is selected and returned to the pack which is then shuffled. The magician then feels the backs of the cards one at a time and is able to find the selected card by sensing which card is warmer from the spectators touch! The selected card is then shuffled into the pack again only to jump to the top of the deck. The cards are then cut once placing the selected card in the middle of the pack - but say the magic words and the selected card is on top again!

Good Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2005
Well to start off I know many good card tricks and tricks in general and I get a mixed amount of reactions depending on the person and my performance. This trick has most definitely got more of a reaction from people than any of my other tricks. People cannot explain how you did it and are in Awwwwww after seeing it done. The best part is you can do many other Tricks with this deck to lead up to the ultimate climax. If u are into card tricks and want the craziest reaction from spectators than buy this trick NOW.

It's a SVENGALI deck, people! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2010
Svengali decks are ALWAYS fun; they are one of those "classic" gimmicks that have stood the test of time. As I have said before, things become classics for a reason; crappy tricks don't end up as classics.

The svengali deck is a classic gimmicked deck. These are cheap, easy to use and they do all the work for you. That is a great concept within itself. There are SO many things you can do with a svengali, and there are a TON of resources to learn different tricks.

The only problems a svengali used to have is that they weren't of a good stock. Other svengali decks LOOKED fishy; they didn't look like things people recognized or decks people could relate too. Now that these decks are manufactured by Bicycle (and cheap too!) these are a GREAT buy and really help you do things that couldn't be accomplished as fairly with a normal deck.

Fantastic for beginners OR experts. Pick one up if you don't have one already.

Awsome!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 28th, 2006
This deck is one of my favorites, the reason it got 4 stars is because you cannot do it twice to the same person, and it isnt examinable. All though it is a really good trick, and it's a great price for the reactions you get.

Don't Show all the cards the same! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2008
This is a great trick deck and one of my favorites. But, i must advise not to show all the cards the same (unless you plan to do aa deck switch) as the audience will realize that it is a trick deck. Overall though it's a wonderfull little deck.

MY FIRST! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
This was my first effect ever purchased and I love it because I wouldn't be into magic without it! It's great for the beginner for many reasons, its simple, has an amazing effect, many possibilities and most of all is fun to perform. Any beginner will have their spectators in WOW when doing this and only takes a little practice!

B_Magic's Svengali Review Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2003
I honestly don't like Svengali deck, but I have come to understand that is much more about how I like to perform than anything about the trick itself. The effect of Svengali is very nice, and many, many people love this deck. I don't like it because I feel its impractical for my purposes, as what can be done with this effect can be done with regular cards, which I carry on me all the time anyway. This is a good beginner trick, but I feel that over time anyone who is even a little serious about magic will grow out of this effect. I might recommend people who want a quick easy trick to buy this, but those interested in magic I would say learn a few sleights (Penguin sells excellent books for that) and use regular cards. That's the best way to go. B_Magic Score: D+

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 20th, 2003
THE TRICK IS COOL, I THINK THAT EVERY PERSON THAT\'S DOING STREET MAGIC FOR PEPOLE SHOULD OWN A SVENGALI DECK.THERE IS SO MUCH YOU CAN DO WITH THIS DECK AND MANY WAYS TO DO IT.THE ONLY BAD PART IS THAT YOU CAN\'T DO IT TO THE SAME PERSON AGAIN.

Great Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2003
Very good, reactions are strong too. You can do a huge variety of tricks with this deck, the only thing is that you can't do it more than once to the same individual. However, everyone will be impressed after this trick is done.
