The new DMC ELITES V4 marked deck (now in forest green) is the latest iteration in the ongoing quest by Drummond Money-Coutts to create the most powerful deck of cards available for professional magicians today. The ELITES are a unique collaboration between DMC himself (star of National Geographic's CARD SHARK and BEYOND MAGIC WITH DMC, and of the upcoming Netflix series DEATH BY MAGIC) and designer and magic creator Phill Smith - architect of the revolutionary OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM. This brand new DMC ELITES V4 is the most versatile, nuanced and advanced version of ELITES ever created.

For the first time ever, the DMC ELITES V4 is now printed by the iconic United States Playing Card Company on their legendary Bee stock, still the world's favourite choice. The cards will endure hours upon hours of professional use, and all faces are standard USPCC faces for minimum scrutiny or suspicion from your audience.

The cards themselves feature the latest revision of the unique OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM (OMS), a powerful 'reader' system designed specifically for the use of magicians and mentalists (as opposed to many decks designed for the gambling world). The OMS has an ingeniously hidden marking mechanic that is readable with extreme speed, at great range and even in poor light. It hides the value and suit of the card in plain sight with no decoding necessary - the back of the card literally says the value and the suit. Despite this, you can still comfortably hand the deck to a layman, safe in the knowledge that even the most critical observer would not ever suspect, let alone detect, the secret markings. So subtle, in fact, is the OMS that with the first edition of ELITES - many magicians complained that they'd been sent an unmarked version!

Drawing on the feedback from many hundreds of performers, the OMS has evolved significantly over the years, and in this version the markings are located in all four corners for the very first time - welcoming lefties into the ELITES family. A second quantum leap now allows the markings to be read from a relatively slim spread of cards on the table - or even a fan of cards held in the hands. Finally, the deck also now features a very clear, one-way marking system, allowing for delayed reads and unlocking a whole new realm of methods. Each deck also comes with an instruction card that explains the markings visually - with no language limitations for international performers.

DMC ELITES V4: the greatest marked deck in a generation - now greater than ever.

DISCLAIMER: These cards have been created with professional magic and mentalism in mind. Cheating at games through any means of duplicity - be it skillful or through specialised equipment - is unethical, immoral, and illegal. The creators, manufacturers and distributors of the ELITES range of playing cards cannot accept any responsibility for the unethical abuse or misuse of these playing cards.

An incredible upgrade! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2018
I own the first gen DMC Elites and have used them often in my stage shows because the markings are incredibly easy to read once you get the hang of it. This set is an incredible upgrade to the system, now marking the cards in all four corners and both directions! This makes the back of the cards appear more uniform rather than the "something's fishy" look of just two marked corners.

They are still very easy to read from arm's length, which is an advantage over decks with smaller markings. As I mentioned, these are good for stage effects more than close-up, though they can be used for both without fear of detection. It's not as obvious as other marked decks, so your spectator can hold a card and as long as they don't just study the back they won't see anything.

Maybe my new favorite marked Deck!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 10th, 2018
I am a giant fan of marked decks, I’ve had them all. My go to choice of marked deck was Andy Nymans “ the code “ deck. Unfortunately no longer being sold at penguin. The code deck had just the right amount of markings and very concealed, I find that most marked decks like the marksman deck and Rick laxs new marked deck just have to many markings on them that just aren’t that well concealed. But then comes along the DMC v4 marked deck, simply amazing! Beautiful back design that not only hides the markings so well, the markings are literally in plane sight! Large and easy to read and in no way have I been nervous to hand the card or deck to the spectator without worrying about any markings being revealed. Simply outstanding! Well done DMC and Phil Smith!!!! BRaaVO!!!!! Take a chance and just get one deck you’ll be so happy you’ll come back for more! ;)

Can't I give it 10 Stars?! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 15th, 2019
Very well made deck of cards, looks & feels high end, easy to read the markings (even though I had to get used to the difference between the 9s and the 5s... LOL).

It's really GREAT & elegant deck, like everything DMC puts his name on...

The only thing missing in it is a double backer...

I enjoy this deck very much... Can't I give it 10 Stars?!

Great marked cards Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 23rd, 2019
These cards are beautiful. Marking system awesome, well-designed, invisible but highly visible if you understand what I mean. A double back would have been appreciated, and a change in the card stock used for the box is a must.
Price and quality are great. Please do not discontinue this product. I bought four, just in case ;-)

Beautiful Product Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2019
Beautifully made deck with a brilliant marking system. The cards look elegant, as if they came from a high end casino. And the marking system is virtually undetectable while still being visible from quite a distance away.
