Product Description

The Mirage is one of Dani DaOrtiz's favourite routines. It is a special deck of cards that combines elements of Hofzinser's Transformation Pack and Robert-Houdin's Protean Pack. It enables the performer to transform a deck of fifty-two different cards into a deck that is all alike. Not just once, but twice.

In addition to the special deck you receive DVD instructions with Dani DaOrtiz performing and explaining his favourite routine with The Mirage deck. Three aces reveal the identities of two chosen cards. They magically transform into the first card and then the entire deck follows. Every card is identical.

This is repeated with the second selection. First the aces transform and then the deck. Finally the deck changes back into fifty-two different cards.?Includes DVD featuring Dani DaOrtiz plus the specially printed deck.

Stuff like this is pretty easy to review. You can watch the trailer and decide if you like the effect. If you don't like it, then nothing that I'm about to say matters. However, if you do like it, then maybe you're asking yourself questions about the product, like is it easy? or what's the quality of the gimmick(s)? or is the DVD well produced and easy to learn from? etc. The short answer is yes, excellent and yes, respectively.

Basic Overview

Dani Daortiz is kind of crazy and "all over the place" with excitement . . . kind of reminds me of Juan Tamariz. They're both geniuses, and they both need to stop to take a breath once in a while. That aside, you'll easily be able to learn the effect from the DVD. It's well shot, well lit, well mic'd, and clearly taught even with Daortiz's all-over-the-place-ness.

Keep in mind that this is a fully gimmicked deck that can only be used for this effect, so you'll have to ring in the cooler as they say. That said,... [Read More]

This is a wonderful piece of close up card magic theater.

This is something that is the perfect to closer to a card magic set. It does require table space, so it’s probably not best for restaurant work, or most informal magic performances.

Even though this is a gaffed deck, it will not do all the work for you. You need to have a basic grasp of intermediate card skills, as well as strong audience management skills.

DaOrtiz does a wonderful job of explaining the trick, and showing you the tips and strategies to make sure you don’t get busted. The DVD quality is wonderful, just like all of the EMC products.

If you want a trick deck that is hands off and will do all the work for you, this might not be the best choice for you. However, if you want a strong routine that you are willing to put the time and work into, then this is worth your investment!
