PROS

This is a really powerful effect that could be presented as magic OR mentalism.

It uses regular decks of cards that are prepared in advance. The instruction is excellent.

This can be performed at a very low level of difficulty or using a minor adjustment that will take minimal additional skill.

It can be performed fully surrounded and it resets easily or instantly depending upon how you perform it.

CONS

There are some downsides, but with a little creative thinking, I don’t think these are an issue.

First, you will need to use three decks to make two decks. However, you could make a second Juxtaposition deck with the discard cards, or, you might want to check out “Torched and Restored” by Brent Braun and use the discard cards to create the deck for that effect.

Second, the decks are not examinable. However, one of the decks could easily be used for other effects, with a relatively simple sleight. One of the decks will have just one card discrepancy that shouldn’t be an issue. In fact the discrepancy could be used for additional powerful effects.

VERDICT

The effect is very powerful, and it can be presented as magic or mentalism. It uses two decks, one of the decks will not likely be usable for other effects, but one of the decks could be used for other effects.

Manufacturer's Description:


The spectator is asked to choose between a red deck and a blue deck of cards. Let's pretend they chose the blue deck. The blue deck is placed inside their pocket (or handed to a friend to hold) until later.

The red deck is slowly spread between your fingers as the spectator is asked to merely think of any card they see. Keep in mind this is a 100% completely free choice!

Without ANY funny moves the card completely vanishes!

Next you ask them to remove the blue deck from their pocket, they are surprised to see that inside is one red card, the mentally chosen card. Strong enough for any Professional act, Easy enough for a Beginner.
