Acar's notes: My favorite part of the presentation is where you have the spectator try to find their own card, so they really get a sense of how hard it is to do what you're about to do. What a sweet, brilliant touch by Cameron.

A stunning miracle with a BORROWED SHUFFLED deck. Deceit Treat is an effect that you will immediately want to perform. The secret is satisfying and the effect is completely impossible.

A borrowed shuffled deck is cut into three packets. They choose whichever packet they want, it's a completely free choice. A card is freely selected from that packet and shuffled back in. The spectator even shuffles the card. Next the spectator deals cards to find their card only to discover it is not so easy. The magician then uses his power of intuition to reveal the spectators card and it works every time.

Deceit Treat has everything you want in a great card effect. The plot is engaging. The effect is impossible,deceptive and the secret is really great. Just any borrowed shuffled deck and you can perform this effect. Deceit Treat is also self working so you can focus purely on your performance without worrying about difficult sleight of hand.

"Aaaaaah!" No greater compliment. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 15th, 2017
Thank you Cameron Francis for sharing this twist on a classic. The video instruction is clear, thorough and concise. After watching the instruction once-I understood the material and the principle behind this effect. This is an impromptu card revelation that has an impact on audiences (like a pipe wrench to the head kind of impact).
The climax of my first public performance of this card revelation earned me an ear piercing "aaaaaah" from a group of awe-struck women. They startled the cr@% out of me. And that's the reaction that reminds me that my business is performing wonderment.
Deceit Treat is a miracle to the layperson and an awesome worker for magicians. At $10 it pays for itself after your first audience reaction.

Good method applied to a genius plot Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2017
There's not much to say about this trick other than it fools everyone. You never see the card, but you are able to find it without even looking. This is a must have for any card Magician.

Very Clever Old School Card Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2017
This reminds me of some of the old Harry Lorayne stuff...the psychology is perfect and the working is UNBELIEVABLY easy. Very powerful, with a borrowed deck and no fiddling (well, that the spectator can see). The one "slight," if it can be called that, can be done by a 9 year old.

Very clever, I'll use this, thanks, Cameron!

Simple, Strong, Practical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2017
This isn't anything particularly new. Cameron really doesn't add anything to the principle, but it's still a solid effect. Many will recognize the principle from beginner magic literature. It's essentially a self-working effect that enables the performer to focus on engaging presentation. I was just expecting something more in terms of methodology. Okay offering and strong effect; you can just get more bang for your buck from a book.

Real Card Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 8th, 2017
Hello Everyone,

I am no stranger to packet trick when it comes to card routines. And I love them despite what others say. When a briefcase of mine was stollen with about 50 gaffed decks that took me 40 years to buy, many so rare they could not be replaced, I hunted for years to replace 95% of them.

But there is NO better magic than magic that is performed with a spectator's deck of card, where much of the magic happens in their hands, and offers them a truly FREE selection. And I mean TRULY FREE SELECTION. This beats any packet trick I own.

I love this because it appears to be true mentalism. And the only prop you need is a regular deck of cards. And they don't even need to be your deck. This is my new Ambitious Card Routine. Well, it's up there anyway. LOL

Cameron's instructions were clear and easy to understand unlike my reviews. LOL. I was performing this trick before the video was over. And I remember the steps as they are as easy as it comes. When Cameron explained the trick at the end with a flipped card, I was already performing the trick to others. No special slights or handling. There are a few things to remember, just like any other trick, but nothing that you can't master within a few minutes of practicing this routine.

A great buy and a greater trick because this is Real Card Magic at it's best.


I hope that this helps you,

The Magic Doc

Wonderful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 14th, 2017
I bought this out of curiosity - it was a low price and what's not to love about an impromptu effect with a borrowed, shuffled deck?

This is a great tool for every magicians arsenal and it has many ways that it can be presented. Cameron Francis is, as ever, a great teacher. He gives you everything you need to learn and perform without any filler.

I'm very happy with my purchase from Penguin.

Downright deceitful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2017
This is such a fun, quick little trick that continuously amazes lay folk. So simple, yet so strong. As always, Cameron's teaching is topnotch.

During one of my performances of this trick, a spectator said, "is he counting cards" and I thought to myself, "Oh no, they're on to me!". Using the little subtlety Cameron suggests completely sold the effect because upon the revelation, the same spectator started freaking out. A Deceit Treat indeed!

Fabulous treasure Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 18th, 2021
What a terrific routine from Cameron Francis for the novice or the experienced magician. The concept is easy and applicable to so many different effects. I really appreciated Cameron's additional thoughts on routines with this concept. He is a down-to-earth wonderful teacher. Thanks for sharing this buried treasure principle and for showing Marty Kane's original effect that inspired this work - easily one of the best downloads I've gotten from Penguin!
