When I carry a gimmick, prop or deck, my number one rule is that I MUST have other uses for it. Every prop has to justify its existence in my pocket, or it gets kicked to the curb.
With careful thought five props can give you 15-20 routines, or more. You can carry a minimum of props but are able to perform for hours.
I LOVE the special deck for Ultimate Perfect Card Stab, but wanted to be able to do other effects with it. ( a half deck version of Selbit's Experiment in Thought Reading trick - on this site - is already on the list). So I set to work.
This lesson is all about the material that came out of those work sessions. Working off of the principal behind Koran's Miracle Card Stab (also explained here) and fusing it with the features of The U.P.C.S. Deck you now have extra miracles at your fingertips. In fact, all done in sequence leading up to the U.P.C.S. they not only set the tone and emphasize how mixed and 'normal' the deck is, but have the added bonus of helping sell the impossibility of stabbing at a card.
Hope you enjoy this.
