After purchasing the product I watch the relative instructional video and 2 months after I received
the item. After two more weeks it is still in the box sealed and will remain like that, the video
was enough for me, until I will think of something smart on how to get some information without
sounded an adolescent. It is definitely a miss leading video the questioning to the spectators is
When my nephew was 4 years old he used to ask me
"black cards or red cards?"
Ok, black cards are left. "Spade or Clubs?"
not exactly but very close to
it for $40? Not even a pateo procedure.
In the other hand I am not complaining and not giving
one star review because the design of the deck has a structure which potentially could be use in
different ways but you need to develop a plan to make it work, or ask if spectator card is black or

The trick is a fooler, the spectator stares at the method and they won't notice.
downside is that you can't do the trick twice to the same spectators, or the same table.

Although I knew the modus operandi after seeing it the first time, I really like this routine. It is
a very well constructed routine, The explanations by Nick are excellent. And the asked price (and
quality!) for this special printed deck is a steal. Well done! Please go to the "discussion area" if
you have purchased the deck; I added there an idea under "little hint and idea" which you might
like. I do a lot ... ;)

Excellent Card/Mentalism trick. Very clever. Yes, it takes a bit of memorization, but not a lot.
It's certainly worth the effort to memorize a few cards to enable you to pull off such an astounding

If you watch the trailer you'll surely be thinking that this is similar to John Kennedy's excellent
Mind Power deck...But Divine and Conquer takes the concept to the next level because you can show
your audience the entire faces, which dispels any notion of the cards being a 'trick' deck. This is
a specially printed deck. So, the value is very good for the money.

This is the Grandson of the mindpower Deck and Al Koran Deck. Little memorization is needed but it
is really easy. Easy to Do either if you're a good fisherman. A reputation maker. Spectators Will
end in lineup asking you if you can Read their future with cards. It is that good. Tutorial is clear
and you can learn it the seconds you're ordering it. I have'nt receive it yet but i allready know
how it Works

I have always been a fan of Max Mavens handling of the Al Koran deck, but this takes it to whole
'nother level! This is a beautifully executed custom deck and Nick's teaching is superb. Drop in one
of Giobbi's many deck switches at the end and you are off to an astounding start that will leave
them amazed and wanting more :-)

Great effect, usually I don't devote one pocket for a gimmick deck but this deck deserves one pocket
because it's so strong.
Nick Locapo will give you all the informations and details to perfom
this trick with zero problems. The effect needs some audiece management but if you follow the video
instructions and watch the Dan Harlan's live performance in the end, it will be so easy. After 1
hour I have performed this trick in front of a group of 20 people. Great trick, strong reactions.

Did the routine at a corporate gig for two different groups. Both times. BOTH TIMES, it didn't work.
And by that I mean, one person from each group didn't know a club from a spade. Is this the fault of
the trick? Nope. But, it isn't fool proof either, and when I'm performing at a corporate gig, I
can't have something that doesn't work 100%. Will never perform this again. Seemed like a great
concept, but unfortunately, it depends on your audience being able to read a card.I don't get to
edit like a marketing video.

Gimmicked decks that are actually worth the retail price are few and far between. The deck alone is
worth the price. It would cost a small mint to make one. It is a must have for gimmick deck
There is a learning curve and difficulty will vary depending on the performer.
There are however built in mechanics to make the learning as simple and as easy as possible. This
is the one drawback and what may not make it practical for everybody, but it really does not require
a great deal of discipline to master.
Once mastered the effect is simple to do.
The big positive is really reinforcing the paradigm the spectators had a free choice by dealing
out the entire deck face up before the final reveal.
The straight up performance may
possibly be repeated under the right conditions, and if you were to (say) employ a deck switch the
routine could enhanced or extended to throw repeat attendees off the scent. For the experienced
magician there is plenty of room to improvise.
I have no reservation when I say, "This is
one of those decks to have."
It is very strong as presented and an incredible utility deck
if you're of the mindset to chart your own course.
