It's well worth it Report this review

I am only 14, and I got it down in an hour. It does take a little sleight of hand, but Oz teaches it perfectly. This trick may seem impossible, but it's not! You can do it! The only downside to this trick is that if you mess up a little, then the whole trick goes down the drain, but hey, its the same with any trick.

Well-conceived Report this review

This is a very well-conceived effect. The psychology employed is excellent. The spectators will be convinced that they've been seeing a full deck of red cards the whole time, up until the change.
This effect is clearly not for beginners. Not so much because the moves are technically difficult, but because there's a lot of timing and audience management issues that can only be handled well with experience.
The main challenges are the initial card selection... it's very limited. And the final steal and ditch can be extremely intimidating. Like I said, not technically difficult... anyone can grab some cards and stuff them into their pocket. The issue here is finding the right moment and using the right body language to make sure it isn't noticed. This part has to be done well, because the whole point of the effect is that the deck can be examined at the end. If you're spotted ditching cards, game over.
The change used here is another one that a lot of people can do, but as Oz points out, a lot do it very poorly. All of this adds up to an effect that it relatively easy to do, but actually somewhat difficult to do WELL. But after seeing the demo, I think you'll agree it's very much worth the effort.
Awesome once you master it... but hard to master Report this review

This one looks great when you see Oz perform it, but there are 2 things I don't like about it. The fact that the spectator can only choose a card near the top, and it has a real dirty end. The color change is really hit-and-miss. Not recommended for beginners.
It's still an amazing trick if you're skilled enough to pull it off.
Very good, but... Report this review

This trick is very good, and powerful. The other 46 people that have left comments have summed up the good points.
No one has mentioned yet that while at the end the deck is fully examinable, it is obviously not full which most people comment on fairly quickly.

It's a great trick but much more difficult than most other reviewers state. Requires good control of cards for shuffling and cutting the deck. Great for amateur magicians good with cards but not for beginners.
Great color changing deck effect! Report this review

If you liked Revolver, you'll love this. It's clean, straight-forward, and easy to do. If you're a beginner, you should buy it just for the great instructions on how to do the color change of the first card, before the rest of the deck changes color. This was developed by a fellow Penguin, so if you have any questions, he can answer them. Highly recommended!
It's nice... Report this review

but is isn't perfect. This trick does have some flaws but overall it is a really cool colour changing deck routine. The best part is, is that you can show more than two cards in the deck unlike a lot of deck changes out there, and you can let the spectator freely choose a card. The ending is a little fishy and will take some time to get right. The spectators can examine the deck at the end but just be careful. You don't want them in possession for too long. Aside from that, this is probably one of the better looking deck switches out there, and on the plus side, it is pretty much instantly repeatable, although I don't know why you would want to.
decent full deck change Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2015
After using several old principles for a full deck color change for quite a long, I started using this once I got more confident. I've been doing a variation on this for 2 years in which I'm starting to get shows and clients. With proper execution, it's has the potential to be one of the strongest non-closer card effects!
Great! Report this review

Nemesis is so visual, and easy. Oz teaches in detail how to have the cards in your control, and you are left perfectly clean!
Not for beginners, but still doable Report this review

I purchased this a while ago. Honestly, I don't use it much. But that speaks more to my style and performing conditions.
It's definitely an opener or closer, or a solo effect. Just not something you'd want to do in the middle of an elaborate card program. If using as a closer, there are several approaches you can take to get into it. If I using it as a closer, in an otherwise NON-card program, even easier.
Not many sleights involved except for the obvious one seen in the video and one more bold one needed near the end. But there's built in mindirection that makes it fly by. Some audience judgment/management is needed at the beginning. Only regular cards are used.
It's not a hard trick.,but there's a lot involved and it's something you want to practice a lot before showing lay people.
