Magicians have used marked decks for centuries to fool even the most astute audiences. Luke Jermay's Marksman Deck builds on classic marking systems, with additional secret marks that open up a whole range of new tricks and possibilities. While the deck can be used for your own marked deck routines, Luke also teaches five of his own semi-automatic tricks:

  • Three Tests of Intuition
  • Dowsing
  • Card Peeks Routine
  • Card Calling
  • Card Memory
Includes a specially marked red Bicycle Mandolin deck and a 45-minute instructional DVD by Luke Jermay.

Usable for magicians but built particularly for mentalists, the Marksman Deck is jam-packed with information that allows you to do effects never before possible.

The marks allow you to:
  • Find the current card
  • Find the card above
  • Know the position of the card in the stack
  • Know how many cards are above it
  • Know how many red (and therefore also black) are above it
  • Know the combined total of all the card values above it
"Theodore De Land's Automatic Deck premiered in 1913 and has been a personal favorite for four decades. Leave it to Luke Jermay to modernize the best parts and then add actual improvements. The Marksman is an absolute bull's eye."
- Michael Weber

"The kind of effects one dreams of are now possible thanks to this utility prop. More proof that Luke is an exceedingly clever thinker and performer."
- Paul Wilson

"I've seen a lot of marked decks, but I think this must be one of the best ever designed. Jermay has not only done yeoman work in the design and placement of the various marks (which are pleasantly easy for the trained eye to read), but has added a number of unique marks designed especially for particular routines that otherwise would require a lot of difficult sleight of hand. The instructions come in the form of a DVD in which Jermay explains everything simply and clearly. I think the Marksman Deck is something you will actually use."
- Richard Kaufman

"With Jermay's Marksman Deck, you will hit the bull's eye and perform deadly routines. Its combined features make it the perfect weapon in your arsenal!"
- Vincent Hedan

"Over and over, the debate 'should a mentalist use playing cards?' pops up in threads among enthusiasts of the field. I personally never believed the premises of the question itself, but here is a most cogent answer in the form of a new, brilliant Jermay release. Luke took a classic idea and turned it into something that has so much more potential than anything similar yet available. More than a utility device, this is a fully engineered system waiting to be exploited by the savvy performer. A companion book, with thoroughly detailed routines and scripts, will guide you in discovering this most amazing advance in the art of demonstrating psychic miracles with just a deck of cards."
- Marco Fida

Add the Marksman Deck to your tools, and watch your mentalist abilities soar!

First off let me just say I did not buy this from Penguinmagic, I bought this directly from Luke Jermay at the session convention (a UK convention run by Vanishing Inc) earlier this year so I have had the deck for quite some time before it released and have performed with the deck many times since buying it. Let me tell you this thing is a thing of beauty, it is incredibly easy to use, the markings are really easy to read and this is coming from someone who has poor eyesight and despite that I can read them perfectly, the deck handles really nicely just like a regular mandolin deck (these are made in mandolin back) the cards are very good quality as is the DVD that comes with the deck, it's shot very well as you would expect from Vanishing Inc. Luke discusses a few routines on the DVD such as...

Card Calling
3 Phase intuition routine
Telepathy
Red/Black colour separation plus many more tips, tricks and handling alternatives with the deck.

The deck really is limited only by your imagination with what you can do with it.

At first glance you may think that the Spectators will see what's going on with the deck if you hand it to them but trust me take it from someone who has had the time to test it you really have nothing to worry about, as soon as you go out and start performing with the marksman deck you'll be amazed by the potential this has and see that it is truly a beautiful tool which you'll be wanting to thank Luke for bringing to the market.

I am given to understand that refill decks will be made available soon I'm not sure when though, Luke has stated his goal with the marksman deck is to make it an affordable deck so that you don't have to be frightened of using them, so I can only assume refill decks will be relatively cheap I'm not too sure on the exact price.

Luke will also be publishing a limited edition book which will contain many more ideas and uses with the deck which is going to be titled "voyages coming soon.

I wanted to go as in-depth as I could and there is many more things I could say but I think I'll wrap up here by saying, if you want a great affordable tool to add to your repertoire then definitely check this out you will not be disappointed.

I purchase every marked deck that is professionally printed when I can, I also love any book on the art of marking cards. What Luke Jermay has produced here is something so special and great it's amazing. He is combining a lot of other deck work within this one deck. Without saying to much about the markings its practical, it's easy to see, in goes hand n hand with mem deck work. Simply beautiful. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this deck...

Not your typical marked deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2017
This deck is "packed" with features (and markings). This is not a "marked" deck - but rather a reader back where all the indicators are EASILY readable. A Magician will see these right away. But don't worry, they are "hidden" in plain sight. Luke gives you a host of ideas and materials so that you can get off and running right away. This is an entire routine of magic in the palm of your hand.

Anytime you can have a well recognized, skillful, magician, mentalist sitting right in front of you with the tools he is about to demonstrate, and he is teaching you in your living room, in what is in fact a 'one to one' training session, it's a good thing. Cards in hand, you can easily follow along the 'not very complicated' system by one of the finest performer/instructors out there. He demonstrates 'his' presentations and then explains every detail as to how he does 'that'. Clear, concise, great learning format. I am now routinely performing about half of what is possible with the deck and I couldn't be more pleased. You will find your own uses. As is pointed out in the instructions, one can use this deck for any other effects you have using this concept. This is what we are all used to, times 10! I might add, as Luke points out, nobody suspects what you and I might think as 'obvious'. They just don't and for those still concerned, Luke gives a great and simple tip. I just haven't needed it. I might also add, my 'false shuffles' are pretty weak but it's just not a problem. My point is, if you are worried about those things, don't. I just keep talking and doing what I do and in dozens of performances, so far, nobody has seemingly, suspected a thing. (I have been so bold as to say, "I am not a card man, I am a mentalist, so just look at these cards (show the faces)and see how they are all different and mixed up." Then I do two (easy) false cuts and 'go to town'. I didn't shuffle them at all! Outcomes are simply 'amazing' to the audience. One or 20. I tend to start with four elements of what is presented and then go right on into 'other effects' employing the same principles using the same deck. I am NOT a 'card man' (ask anybody), but I must say, these aren't really 'card tricks'. I treat it as 'mentalism' so nobody expects me do a fancy 'shuffle' and this is simply one of the tools to demonstrate those 'mentalist' skills. I find it 'advantageous' to start any 'such' routine with this because order matters, sort of, (and if it gets out of order, Luke gives you have an 'out), so once I'm through with that, you can really open it up to anything else that uses the same principles. One last tip. I DO bring a small calculator and hand it out to one of the spectators. When the 'math' begins, EVERYBODY watching starts calling out the values of the cards as they are presented and the spectator punches in the numbers. I'm just 'monitoring'. So if you are worried about the 'math', get somebody else to do it! The little math 'problem', becomes 'fun' for everybody! They LOVE it! I think this is properly priced for what you get, the quality of the instruction and the video quality is good as it gets and the utility of the deck, there is simply nothing like it. Well worth it. Thank You Luke (again) and Penguin!

This is for people that think the markings on Andy Nyman's The Code is too easy to see. They are much smaller, much less defined, "you can't not see them" he says, (with a straight face) in the turgid, repetitive, unwatchable video. It has a few additional "features" that Jermay insists make for powerful effects, I insist he's lying.

Could not be better Report this review

This is a wonderful deck reading system - but the add copy above is incorrect. The performance video is 45 minutes, but the explanation video that you get is over an hour long PLUS you also get a 33 page pdf. More than your moneys worth - add 2 decks to cart

I love the amazemet of this Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 28th, 2018
...I give it a 3 only because Luke Jeramy says they have made it so affordable that you can tear them up. 12 Decks for a $100 still does not make me feel I can tear and burn them up. I'd use a regular deck I buy for a few dollars to tear and burn...not a $10.00 Deck. It may not be gold but if I burn and tear 3 cards I just burned 3 decks. Then goes on the shelf for incomplete Decks.

This deck adds many innovative and unexpected capabilities to the many advantages of an ordinary marked deck. I am still exploring each of the added magical functions of the deck. The supporting video is clear and comprehensive. It encourages creative new tricks, limited only by your own imagination. It is well worth the investment!
