This is a heavily-gimmicked deck, but it's gimmicked in ways that are very familiar to anyone who's ever done any work with cards. Too familiar, perhaps. Hasn't everyone seen those "trick decks" where they look like one thing if you riffle it this way, but look like something else if you riffle it the other way? Laymen may not know what to call it, but plenty of them have seen them.

The biggest problem with this deck is that you're showing an effect (deck transformation) that practically BEGS the spectator to say, "Hey, let me take a look at those cards!", and naturally you have to refuse, since this deck is obviously unexaminable.

So why show this effect to anyone?

That's a bit short sighted anonymous. Don Alan killed with his presentation as do I. Sure it is a gimmicked deck but routine it well and put your own presentation around it - not what it says in the enclosed instructions - and it is a layman killer.
