Phoenix Marked Deck Set Review

Let me say right off the bat that the add you see here is not totally up to date - this set now comes with a special DVD explaining the history, the development and the features of all of the Phoenix decks. It also has a section with guest Alexander Kolle where they demonstrate and explain six different effects using the various features. Last is a sort of behind-the-scenes look at the United States Playing Card factory in Erlanger, Kentucky.

Along with the DVD you get two marked decks, one of each color - and two normal Phoenix poker decks, again one of each color.

The marked cards have all of the same fantastic features as the regular Phoenix decks with the addition of a very clear, well-hidden and easy to read marking system.

In addition to the DVD explaining how the marking system works, there is also a sheet in each box that shows you where to find them and how to read/interpret them. They are not cryptic at all and if you are familiar with the Ted Lesley system, you will already be familiar with the style. With the Phoenix marked decks, since Christian designed them from the ground up, he was able to incorporate these secret markings into the cards without having to find somewhere to squeeze them in.

One of the nicest features of the marked cards is that they can literally be read from either end, in any direction and from any of the four corners. Most marked decks are only marked in two corners - these are marked in all four!

The quality of the cards is exactly the same second-to-none high quality as the regular Phoenix decks.

Besides what is shown on the DVD, the use of marked cards offers some very strong possibilities and are limited only by your imagination.

If you have any effects or routines that would be enhanced or made stronger by the use of marked cards, or if you ever wanted to do an effect that required them, these are definitely for you. If they suit your needs, then...

I highly recommend them!
