1. Deep Astonishment by Paul Harris
(IMO one of the greatest tricks ever invented.)

2. Cards Across
(Doesn't matter what method you use, it kills every time.)

3. Card on Ceiling
(The Cards are still up there years later, and the lasting impression it leaves for spectators is unbelievable.)

4. Invisible Deck
(Bill Malones presentation is the best)

5. Ambitious Card with your favorite "Card to impossible location" ending
(Nothing beats your favorite ACR with your favorite impossible location ending. Can't go wrong with FOB or a Card to wallet for walk around. For stage, the Clarity Box is by far the best reveal.

My favourite tricks to perform:
1: Switch (my own creation)
2:Triumph routine
3:Card to Mouth
4:Colour changes
5:Card to impossible location (shoe, card box, pocket, wallet)
when all these link in I've got a "on the go" card routines and even great for payed gigs and when they hand you a random deck that you haven't used. All of these tricks are require no set up.

I don't know the name of this one, a friend of mine showed me years ago. So, if anyone out there knows the name of it and who the originator was, I'd appreciate it. :)
I start off by asking the spectator to select any card, their choice, no force.
I lose their card in the deck and start to show one card after the other, none of which is their card.
The cards are all face down on the table, usually 6.
The spectator is asked to touch any two cards until one is left. I ask the spectator to think of their card. I make a gesture over their head, as if to grab the thought from thier mind....and 'sprinkle' the thought over the hand that covers the card. I ask the spectator to reveal the thought of card, and when they turn the card over...it's their card!
like I said...I don't know the name of this one...but I do this with a borrowed deck and it kills...everytime.
