The 52 to 1 Deck has been hailed by leading performers, creators, and scholars in the magic community as the cleanest thought-of card routine EVER!

At Magic Live 2017, the word was out! It was all people were talking about, from those who got to see this miracle for themselves. Leading mentalists such as Ran Pink, Chris Funk, and Bobby Motta could not believe what they were seeing!

Many effects are possible with the custom-made 52 to 1 Deck including:

  • You spread the deck clearly, showing that every card is completely different. A spectator thinks of a card. They never tell you their card and yet they cut the deck themselves, right at their chosen card!
  • After showing that the cards are clearly all different, two spectators are invited to each think of a card. Without them ever telling you their cards, you simply remove two cards from the deck and place them on their outstretched palms. You nail their selections every single time!
  • In a cabaret or stage routine, spectators are invited to look at multiple cards in a ribbon spread. Even though all the cards are completely different, every single one of the thought-of cards is identified by the performer. No elastic bands! No restrictive handling. This is a version of the tossed-out deck that you will use!
  • Use The 52 to 1 Deck to prove that you can memorize a deck of cards within seconds! After someone names a card, you will instantly be able to tell them the exact position in the deck and dead cut to it perfectly. This is also instantly repeatable.
We are proud to say that this custom-made deck has been printed on Bicycle Stock with Rider Backs! (We don't know how we managed that either!)

So so good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2017
This trick is the best mentalism trick using cards out there without a shadow of a doubt. What you see in the video is literally what you get. You really notice how proud Wayne is to have created this product himself because it really is truely ingenious. As well as the deck they give you a few other routines that if performed correctly are just as good as the original if not better? Overall good explanation, great product and amazing reactions! Highly recommended

Amazing reactions, when it hits Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2017
The good:
The gimmick deck stands up very well to scrutiny. I did this to some spectators 4 times and they still couldn't spot any problems.
The reactions really are over the top when you hit their card and even more so when they cut to it themselves.

The deck will wear out eventually and I suspect that it will get harder to perform over time. You should be able to get hundreds, maybe thousands of performances out of this before that happens however.

The problems:
There is a step left out of the video. You can perform it as the video shows it however. You just need to know how to handle your outs if you miss. In order to hit 100% you either need to re-cut or you need to have them cut instead or you have to get them to answer your questions honestly. People like to try and lie to the magician.

I suspect the best solution lies in patter and presentation. I'm not convinced the currently presented patter is the best available because I've had very mixed results using it. This is the only reason I took away 1 star.

I dislike using gimmicked decks. It's just a personal preference. This trick is super fun to perform though! You'll completely fry audience and magician alike when using this if you hit their card.

Alternatives:
There is a completely alternative routine the creators have come up with that can be performed for an audience with this deck. It's fantastic. Unfortunately I'm almost never performing for more than 6 people at a time.

I believe that magicians will come up with future presentations that will effectively utilize this deck in other ways and they will b similarly devastating.

Conclusion:
This deck is very creative and deceptive. 4/5 stars for routine and patter. Not sure how to incorporate it into a routine yet since it may require a deck change. I love it. I love the reactions. Needs some fine tuning to be perfection. Great job Wayne and David!

My favorite release of the year! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2017
This is such an amazing routine! Wayne and David have put a lot of hard work Into it. What you see on the trailer is exactly what you get. The bonus effect is my favorite. It’s a tossed out deck style routine that’s ultra fair. Buy this now!

Amazing Report this review

This deck is a mind blower. It is similar to the mastermind deck with some major improvements. Very clever.

WOW ! Best gimmicked deck since "Invisible Deck" Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2017
I don't have many gaffed decks as I usually not fond of it.
However this one is spectacular!

With the first version, we cannot clearly show 52 different cards. We can with this version! And I already have a lot of idea with this deck as I had with the invisible . Don't even want to do the trick that we see in the trailer. But this is a good sign.

Only 4 stars? yes! Because there is one little issue for me. When I take the deck I felt that it is finner than usual. I counted them : 49 cards! (but it is really what you get). And others magicians could feel/see that too!

Mind Blower! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 6th, 2017
This is good! An interesting application of a very old principle being applied to create an absolutely mind-screw of a trick!.....Yep, gotta practice a bit but it will be well worth your time. No crazy handling or anything like that. If you are a card person, mentalist, whatever, get this!

Blow them away!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 17th, 2017
This is exactly as it looks. It does exactly what it says and is as easy to do than you can imagine. Every card can be shown different and then you can cut to their card every time and have them cut to it. This is not like the mastermind deck. It more closely resembles the unshuffled deck combined with a mind power deck principle. If I can say that. But what Wayne has added is the ability to cut directly to the card. The thing I love about this is it can be used as a very fair tossed out deck routine which is stellar! No one will suspect the secret but Wayne has used the method for cutting in various other effects of his. Trust me. This works and works beautifully. You NEED this!

A real stunner Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 13th, 2017
When you first open this, you are going to be as confused as possible with no idea how it could fool anyone. After you watch the video and set it up, you'll find you are now holding one of the strongest pieces of magic you own.

There is relatively little work involved once you have the deck set up. It really is as easy as they make it look in the video, and with some audience management you can let them cut the deck themselves and be amazed. This will rely mostly on your performance ability, but will honestly fry most seasoned magicians who think they know how this works.
