LIMITED EDITION: Only 2000 printed! Will NOT be reprinted.

Mortalis Playing Cards is a deck of premium playing cards printed and manufactured in the USA by the United States Playing Card company. Fully marked, it hides its secrets in plain sight.

Only 2000 decks were printed, and will never be reprinted or restocked.

The optical marking system was designed in such a way that the closer you look, the less you see. It hides in direct sight to the untrained eye. Spectators, and even magicians, cannot identify it up close.

To the trained eye, it takes less than 2 seconds to identify and read a card just from the backs. It's designed in such a way that the whole system revolves around the working of a clock. If you can read a clock, you can read Mortalis's secrets. Perfect for close-up!

Printed by the USPCC on their premium stock, then double crushed to perfection along with an embossed air cushion finish. A traditional cut ensures perfect faro shuffles and table work. Saying that the cards handle like a dream is an accurate description.

The custom Court cards were built from the ground up, featuring borderless courts with popping, matching colors. The facial expressions on some cards have been tweaked to give a unique, personal feel. Every deck comes with a double backer, a duplicate card, and a full tutorial on how to read and use the marking system.

Designed by acclaimed artist, designer of the Mint Playing Cards, Christofer Lacoste in Canada, and realized and produced by Area52Magic and Pravar Jain.

It's no secret, that this is a marked deck. And now it's also no secret anymore, that some of the marks are missing and/or wrong. E-mail to the creator wasn't answered since more than a month.

The marking system ist great, but since it's not 100 % correct, it's not usable.

2 stars, because I can still use them as ordinary playing cards.

badly marked marked cards Report this review

(This review is for Mortalis Playing Cards by Area 52)
This deck has 3 badly marked cards: 1) an error in the 2 marks of the 2 of clubs (at both ends the mark corresponds to the ace of clubs). 2) There is also an error in one of the 2 heart marks (no mark) and 3) in one of the 5 diamond marks which is out of place and does not indicate anything.
It's a great marking system, but it has those bugs. Excuse me for my English (not my language)
