We call this one the DELUXE EXPERT version- not because it's hard to do (it's not- it's EASY!), but because this new PRECISION CUT version is such high quality. It has the desirable official Bicycle back design, plus this deck has been meticulously manufactured with professional magicians in mind. This is the finest Svengali deck we've EVER sold! It works like--- MAGIC!
You deserve the new upgraded DELUXE EXPERT CUT Bicycle Svengali Deck!
This is the most popular trick deck we sell! Use this as a force deck (make a spectator choose a specific card). Or use as a great trick deck- so many effects are possible. Let your spectator choose a card, place it back in the deck, deck is shuffled arbitrarily, yet you can cut exactly to the chosen card every time! Have your spectator choose a card from this ordinary-looking deck, but when the card is put back in the deck, the entire deck changes into a deck of all the same card! You can predict which card a spectator will choose every time- and LOTS more!
Can be repeated immediately. No sleights necessary. Comes with deck and printed instructions. Please note that because of the mechanics of this deck, it contains only 48 cards. That's all it is supposed to have!
These cards are Poker size, with the official Bicycle back design.
While you cannot request a specific force card (our stock is always changing), you CAN specify a card you DO NOT want. This is useful if you already have a Svengali or other force deck, and you want to make sure this one will have a different force card. You can make your request in the "Comments" section during Checkout.
The included instructions give you the basics, including routines for several excellent tricks. A DVD and a book is available from MagicTricks.com if you'd like to learn more tricks with this deck.

Expect to see a broken paper seal on the box.Breaking the seal is necessary in order to make the trick deck.Regular ungimmicked Bicycle card decks are made (and sealed) by the U.S. Playing Card Co.Gimmicked card decks, on the other hand, are produced by a number of independent magic trick manufacturers, using those regular Bicycle card decks.To make trick decks, these manufacturers start with the regular Bicycle decks as sold by the U.S. Playing Card Co.U.S. Playing Card Co. places a paper seal over the box flap on each deck.The magic trick manufacturers have to break those seals in order to gimmick the decks inside the boxes.So when you receive a trick deck, expect to see the seal broken.(The only exception is the SEALED Stripper Deck, because that deck is made by the U.S. Playing Card Co.)The cards inside the box are brand new, but they are now GIMMICKED.
And that's all you need!Deck is Poker size with Bicycle back design.Choose between a Red back or Blue back deck when ordering, or allow us to choose for you.
For the advanced magician who wants to be able to fan this deck and make it look like an "ordinary deck", we recommend considering the Mirage Deck, which is a roughed Svengali Deck.
