Docguitarman- I used a normal sharpie to make up the deck, but not making it (the prediction) too large, so you can really give the face up deck a real nice wide spread across the table. I will have to find the book and take another look, because I don't remember reading about using a pencil in this effect. (I've got a terrible memory). I thought there was no need to use a pencil to erase the prediction at the end because I'm using a marker with a dried tip to "make the prediction" in the beginning. Without saying too much- how do you perform it?

Nattefrost. I used a fine sharpie also and have the prediction small and along the margin area near the index. I can spread the deck wide also. I use a regular fine sharpie during the presentation and merely .... fill in the ellipses ...

First time I showed it, to the Mrs. (for the "Mrs. test" ) as I was about to write the prediction with the sharpie she said, "Oh no! don't ruin the deck !" I told her it was okay as it was just a dollar store Maverick deck, not a Bicycle deck, lol! And I can do the trick several times per deck by tossing out the "ruined" card.

When the trick was over she was gobsmacked.

I'm going to make a second deck with same back Mavericks for the occasional time when perhaps I decide its safe to do it one more time (maybe in a walk around situation were some spec nearby may see it twice and notice the card is different).
