This trick FOOLED ME FIVE TIMES IN A ROW. That doesn’t happen a lot, but I’m man enough to admit it.

MUTE was the actually first trick that Ryan ever showed me. I was CLUELESS. And since that time…the trick has grown more and more
deceptive.

Here’s how it looks:

Your friend walks out of the room. Somebody picks a card and puts it back in the deck. It really goes in the middle, and the cards really go in the box. Then your friend walks back into the room…and she INSTANTLY knows what the card was picked.

YOU DON’T SAY ANYTHING. (Hence the trick’s title: Mute.) In the past, tricks like this were accomplished by complex verbal coding, but with MUTE, you say NOTHING. You don’t have to hold your body in a certain position. No hand signals, either. No palming or indexing or fancy sleight-of-hand. Nothing like that.

And most importantly: NO FORCE. The spectator can select WHICHEVER card he wants. Hell—he doesn’t even have to physically pick the card; he can just NAME it.

THAT’S why MUTE fooled me five times in a row. Everything I was looking for (forces, words, hand signals)…JUST WASN’T THERE.


One of the most powerful and most underused premises in magic is PASSING THE POWER onto somebody else. And ANYONE can perform MUTE with you. You don’t need a magic partner or anything like that. You can teach somebody how to do MUTE with you IN TWO MINUTES FLAT. Your friend, your girlfriend, your wife, your partner, your co-worker, some dude you meet at a party—ANYONE can do this with you, and it will FOOL THE HELL OUT OF EVERYONE WATCHING.

I know this firsthand. Which is weird; usually I’m the one doing the fooling, but this time, it was all Ryan. Like I said, I’m man enough to admit this.

Deception at it's finest. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2016
Right off the bat, this is amazing, everything about this is purely well thought out and it's truly as deceptive as it's looks.

The effect and method stays true to the ad copy and there's no funny business going on, it works exactly the way it says it does.

In terms of the method, you will need an assistant but it truly can be ANYONE! Your friend, your sister or even your grandma, if she's into that kinda thing, however it will take much longer for your 'assistant' to learn the method IF he/she is not a magician so I'd say about 15 minutes tops for him/her to FULLY understand it and make the least amount of mistakes but it's well worth it in the end, it doesn't take that long in either case but hey, it works.

The beautiful thing about this principle is that, with a little work, you can apply it to choices other than cards so this is much more than just an 'effect'. One of the coolest things is that once both performers know the principle you can focus entirely on presentation and make it look like MUCH more than what it actually is, that's how crazy simple this is.

The teaching is clear and concise and very easy to understand, I watched it once and got it immediately, Ryan does an excellent job with this.

Overall this download is well worth the price, if I hadn't been sent a review copy (thanks Ricky), I would have bought this anyway. This is one of those things where you learn it once and you'll be armed for life. This is the PERFECT stunt hands down. 5 out of 5.

I have a preference for card magic that can be done with any deck available. This fits the bill. It is easily learned and the instruction is clear.

Hey guys and gal.
Just wanted to start off by saying how amazing this effect is! It can be performed close up or on stage. It has versatility! The explanation is quick, about 14 minutes long. But that's all they needed to explain it thoroughly. I'm definitely going to teach this to my fiance. Because we all know how much our significant others want to be part of our magic. This is so simple and so deceptive. This method puts the second sight effect in the hands of the close up performer. I really think Everyone will get something out of this, whether you're a stage performer or close up performer. I watched the explanation 10 minutes ago and already have tons of ideas for effects and presentations. TOTALLY worth the price. You won't be disappointed! Add to cart and start blowing minds! AND YES! THIS WILL FOOL MAGICIANS! Boom!

This is the first trick, of which I could convince my "anti-magician" girlfriend to learn it, so we can perform it together to prank our friends. Thanks! :)

Deception Cubed! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2016
I too, was fortunate enough to have Ryan and AmberLynn perform this trick for me. It is a stunner! Being familiar with codes, I was also looking for some type of signal...NONE!

Deceptively Easy! Probably the easiest "setup" I have ever had to learn...and can be learned in a matter of minutes.

Deceptively Strong! Having seen it performed live...it slays magicians and laymen alike. Even with a borrowed deck! The fact that it can be repeated over and over leaves 'em stymied. (Although, once is quite enough to stupefy anyone.)

Deceptively Deceptive! Ryan's idea of never having to even see the selected card makes it an impossibility.

All in all, this is an extremely practical and performance worthy effect that is definitely going in my arsenal.

Just bought this today, as I love Ryan and Amber and once Ricky was involved had to buy. Thank you for teaching me such a simple secret. I urge you to get this today just for the video with Ryan and Amber alone. Can't wait to start performing this very very soon. Such a simple trick to learn with so many variations and possibilities.THANK YOU PENGUIN for making this available.

I will use this with a m****d deck and without anyone knowing the selection until it is revealed by the assistant.

Easy, quick, very clever. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2016
This is a great method for transmitting a card to someone secretly. All you need is the secret and a deck of cards. You could possibly even do it without a deck of cards, using a thought of card. Its cool how close to real telepathy this is. One person tells another person what card was chosen without any words. I wish I could say more but I'm afraid to tip the method. Can learn and teach this method quickly and easily.
