DMC Elites V4

The new DMC ELITES V4 marked deck (now in forest green) is the latest iteration in the ongoing quest by Drummond Money-Coutts to create the most powerful deck of cards available for professional magicians today. The ELITES are a unique collaboration between DMC himself (star of National Geographic's CARD SHARK and BEYOND MAGIC WITH DMC, and of the upcoming Netflix series DEATH BY MAGIC) and designer and magic creator Phill Smith - architect of the revolutionary OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM. This brand new DMC ELITES V4 is the most versatile, nuanced and advanced version of ELITES ever created.

For the first time ever, the DMC ELITES V4 is now printed by the iconic United States Playing Card Company on their legendary Bee stock, still the world's favourite choice. The cards will endure hours upon hours of professional use, and all faces are standard USPCC faces for minimum scrutiny or suspicion from your audience.

The cards themselves feature the latest revision of the unique OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM (OMS), a powerful 'reader' system designed specifically for the use of magicians and mentalists (as opposed to many decks designed for the gambling world). The OMS has an ingeniously hidden marking mechanic that is readable with extreme speed, at great range and even in poor light. It hides the value and suit of the card in plain sight with no decoding necessary - the back of the card literally says the value and the suit. Despite this, you can still comfortably hand the deck to a layman, safe in the knowledge that even the most critical observer would not ever suspect, let alone detect, the secret markings. So subtle, in fact, is the OMS that with the first edition of ELITES - many magicians complained that they'd been sent an unmarked version! 

Drawing on the feedback from many hundreds of performers, the OMS has evolved significantly over the years, and in this version the markings are located in all four corners for the very first time - welcoming lefties into the ELITES family. A second quantum leap now allows the markings to be read from a relatively slim spread of cards on the table - or even a fan of cards held in the hands. Finally, the deck also now features a very clear, one-way marking system, allowing for delayed reads and unlocking a whole new realm of methods. Each deck also comes with an instruction card that explains the markings visually - with no language limitations for international performers. 

DISCLAIMER: These cards have been created with professional magic and mentalism in mind. Cheating at games through any means of duplicity - be it skillful or through specialised equipment - is unethical, immoral, and illegal. The creators, manufacturers and distributors of the ELITES range of playing cards cannot accept any responsibility for the unethical abuse or misuse of these playing cards.

DMC Elites V4 Review

DMC Elites V4 - Amazing deck of cards delivered in perfect “mint” condition (pun intended)!
52Kards - Great company with excellent customer service. One piece of constructive criticism that I would make is that delivery times are quite long (over a month for my order going from Georgia, USA to Alberta, Canada). So, Order we’ll in advance of when you need your item.

Thank you for kind words, Cameron!! We are so happy to hear you love the cards and we do love the pun! Yes, the Economy Shipping method we have is a more affordable option for our internationally based customers so the delivery times will be longer than the standard international first class shipping option. However, we do have faster methods for those who need it.

Reader deck u can use

Before I bought this deck, I already had several marked or reader decks and I realize now that they were "cool, nice, but not much else ". In cardistry, or in cards in general, a half microscopic piece of information hidden on the back of the cards are good for in reality...nothing. U don't know how much of a tool it can be when the system is practicable and applicable. Just get it. I got 2 more and the Passport (booklet) that has multiple examples of how to do different things. They are concepts that you can build on or just do it word for word like DMC did it. They have a new one now with the alphabet. I'm getting it to. The price is for the technology. This is not easily printed and easily designed. You get what you pay for.
