The way it is presented uses a gimmick. If made correctly the spectator can examine and shuffle the deck to his hearts content. The gimmick is VERY ard to spot, and the spectator would probably have to be a magician to spot it.
It can be done with a borrowed deck and no gimmick, but your card control skills must be better. No he does not show you a way to use a borrowed deck

Sort of. First answer is 50% wrong at least - the deck cannot be borrowed. Can it be shuffled and "examined?" Perhaps, but it's possible a sharp spectator will think something is fishy.

Yes the deck can be borrowed and shuffled by the spectator! Examined too!
