Phoenix

The idea was to establish a new brand and design especially made for magicians. This deck is not the 531st deck of fancy looking cards that hits the magic community on a monthly basis and that ends up on a collector's shelf. I am talking about a working horse for all magicians around the globe. A deck that should look nice and modern, but not at all fancy or suspicious. A deck that has secret weapons built in that can be used but don't have to be. Well hidden and secret that no layman would ever find! And if he did find them he would not think about it as a weapon! 

  • Printed at US Playing card company on Bicycle cardstock, with air-cushion finish, so the cards have the well-known Bicycle quality 
  • Going one important step further: all the USPC decks of our Phoenix brand are produced in the highest quality level: Casino Grade. Superior to any Bicycle Deck in standard Supermarket Quality. 
  • The decks are punched through the backs with freshly sharpened blades to allow perfect Faros and Riffle Shuffles right from the start, professional magicians know the difference 
  • The new deck order is optimized for the Tamariz Stack, you can immediately start the necessary faros to get into the stack 
  • Phoenix faces and Bicycle faces are identical with a few exceptions 
  • The Ace of Spades is pretty close to the Bicycle Ace of Spades 
  • All other Aces are specially designed for better visibility. Fine details make them beautiful for close-up performances also, these fine details blur out on distance and will get invisible on stage. 
  • The common used (old) Aces were included in the deck during the first two printing runs, so that we could find out if our larger Aces or the old Aces would be the ones more preferred! Feedback helped us to completely move over to our larger Phoenix Aces, so that we now can provide two Jokers, a blank face card and a special game card! 
  • The back design is modern and classy, not too fancy to draw suspicion 
  • The back design has a very visible but pretty well hidden oneway marking 
  • The backs where especially designed to hide additional information in the gaffed cards 
  • The Phoenix card case uses the traditional layout of the Bicycle card case, also there are NO tricks or information on the card case that the cards are optimized for magicians. So you are able to leave the cards on the table after your performance as a souvenir for your audience. 
  • The faces also have a well hidden, but very visible oneway marking, a unique feature of all Phoenix Decks.

    Very Nice

    Though I thought these were the value and suit marked versions, they were just the standard cards. They still are very good quality cards that look almost similar to plain bicycle cards. I misinterpreted the one-way marking as the cards being "marked cards."

    Top shelf

    Cards look and feel great. The marking was so subtle it took me like 10 minutes to find it. Perfect for some of my favorite effects. Top shelf!

    Markings, yes; conventional, no; excellent quality overall.

    If you understand the distinction between "marked" and "one-way" as magicians employ those terms, then you'll appreciate the "one-way-ness" of these card backs for its combination of clarity and subtlety. On the other hand, the one-way system utilized on the card faces requires a keen eye to put to practical use. Note that a traditionally marked version of the Phoenix deck exists that is much more expensive but of no higher quality. Buy 3 or 4 of these decks here for the value, then maybe 1 of those pricier ones if you feel you need the functionality their extra ink provides.
