"The Butterfly deck will enable you to perform miracles not possible with any other deck. A true innovation in card magic."
- Richard Kaufman (chief editor of Genii Magazine - the largest selling magic magazine in the world)

The unique marking system hidden in the back-design of The Butterfly Playing Cards contains two different marking systems that can be used separately, and they will make you a miracle worker if they are combined. An explanation of this written marking system explanation is included, as well as a link to online video instructions.

The cards were designed with two main goals in mind.

1. They have to be complex and irregular enough to disguise the markings.
2. They have to be pretty enough to justify their use over a more common deck of playing cards.

Cartamundi's card stock is soft, the finishing feels amazing, and it is very durable. And their quality control is so strict that any deck containing even a single card that is off-cut for more than 0.5mm gets discarded.

"This is the most ingeniously designed marked deck I have ever seen in my life! You can do miracles with this pack that cannot be performed with any other deck of marked cards. Wonderful... absolutely wonderful!"
- Daryl

"So damn clever... these butterflies are going to fly off the shelves literally."

"I hate you for coming up with this."
- Héctor Mancha

"A Beautiful, Brilliant Design."

"Such a good addition to a road less traveled... GREAT JOB!"
- Daniel Garcia

"Easily one of the most creative and useful designs I've ever seen on a pack of playing cards."
- Jeremy Griffith

"Congratulations to all card workers around the world. A new era has begun."
- Johan Ståhl

"I only wish The Professor was alive to have seen this. He would've called it a masterpiece."
- Howard Hamburg

"There are many new beautiful playing card designs. However, this design will blow your mind. I can't wait to explore the endless possibilities."
- Asi Wind

"This deck is too good to be true."
- Harapan Santoso Ong

A force multiplier for all your card effects Report this review

As everyone else has said, these are utterly ingenious and probably my favorite magic purchase of the year. Critically, I think the reviewer who suggested these are really only useful for the effects included has it very much backwards: The effects taught with the trick use only the marking system and assume little or no knowledge of sleight of hand, which makes sense. But the real power of these isn’t as an sole method for stand-alone effects (excellent though they are). It’s making everything else you do an order of magnitude stronger & more impossible. You could, for instance, let a spectator shuffle the cards, then “set up” another effect that requires a particular arrangement at the top, without looking at the card faces. Change an indifferent card to an only verbally selected card in the spectator’s hand (and, more generally, turn lots of “pick a card” effects into “name a card” effects). Basically, think of any effect you do and ask “how could I make this stronger if I could instantly (well, very quickly) know the position of any card or cards in a shuffled deck?” The more sleight-of-hand based card magic you already do, the more value you’ll get out of these.

These decks are hidden with secrets. You can virtually enhance any card trick. Yes, it will take some practice to be able to read them in less than a second, but you will have a weapon that is unparalleled in card magic.

Butterfly Deck very cool But not for beginners!!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2017
The most sophisticated marked card
system to date that I know of, if you don’t know the
method, you will never figure it out. Very clever, however
not at simple and not easy to learn. Instructions
are clear and gone over will. Note to fill comfortable using the cards
you will need to practice and practice a lot and
for a very long time. This marked deck is not for beginner in my opinion.
If you are willing to spend the time you will be very
happy if not you will be super disappointed.
The price is high due to method sophistication.
The reason that I don’t give it a five star is because,
I think it should warn not for beginners!!!

It's close to 5 stars but not quite Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 2nd, 2017
It's a good fun trick however you are not going to be using these marked cards ( doubt I said too much ) for much else besides the provided tricks. Lots of good fun here but it's not a big play circle. Good quality on the cards as well.
Tad pricey for the package. But you gotta print cards. Hope some replacement decks will be available at a discount for trick buyers.

I'll use this!

Why are you still reading this review? Haven't you seen what Ondrej did to Penn and Teller with this deck?
Only down-side: the price is a tad bit high, hopefully replacement decks and/or bricks will be available soon!!
