I have the Nick Trost bridge sized version with directions I don't use if anybody is interested in it PM me. Even if you don't like the bridge size the directions will help you with a custom built poker size deck.

You could also go for the Prism Deck by Joshua Jay. Every card in there is unique and has a wonderful back design and the DVD that comes with it explains some routines that you can use with it. However, If you just want to know some routines with a rainbow deck other sources might be better.

Road to Vegas - By Craig Petty & David Penn has a good contribution from Charles Fry that deals with the Rainbow Deck & PH bizarre twist; Its pretty good, has a couple really good moods and a great false shuffle that shows all the backs as one.

and I have Prism deck with dvd. and in all honesty I think the Trost effect is the strongest effect - the bicycle deck is the best deck - and the Prism dvd is the best teaching dvd. I will more than likely come up with some hybrid stuff - but hey, I like rainbow decks (I also have David Regal Color Changing Deck that I havent messed with yet.

I had a brainstorm, just as I sold my old bridge sized trost deck. I bought a second Bicycle Rainbow Deck and dvd (still on sale for $15) and a couple matching cards from "other bicycle decks" and made 2 decks capable of doing the trost routine with the bicycle decks. Or I can throw the bicycle decks back together to use the routines from the included DVD

How about a blank face deck where the only cards chosen have faces that are mates?
Not excatly a 3 element trick but 2 out of 3 ain`t bad!

Have fun,

If you have been into card magic for a reasonable length of time you will find - unless you throw old decks away - that you should have nough spare cards to roll yer own. In fact, I do Trost's Rainbow Miracle with spare cards. I present it as the first magic effect I learned from my Uncle Luigi. The aged look of the cards and the fact that the backs are are kind of weird realy works well.

Ropeadope, that's a great idea but unfortunately somebody beat you to it. I can't recall who the creator was or even the effect name. I know I read it in a periodical I have and I also think that I have sold it in one of the shops where I used to demonstrate.

I THINK there is a booklet devoted to Rainbow Deck effects.

This is, for me, actually a bit embarrasing post, but since we're all brother magicians here to help each other by exchanging information, I thought I'd ask for your help.

I have a deck called a Rainbow Deck that I believe I made my self from either a book or lecture notes, but, for the life of me, I can't remember what the source of this was or where it may have appeared in writing...


For gaffed Bicycle decks, particularly home-made, I got into a habit many years ago of hand labelling the name of the card effect in light pencil, on the inside top flap of the deck, and this one is so labelled..."Rainbow Deck".

A description of the Modus Operandi:

On this deck, the backs are all the same......Bycicle Blue, but the faces consist of about 16-20 QS, and half-or-so as many 2D, with the balance of the deck being assorted Bycicle blue back cards.

Would any of you pasteboard afficionados know where a description of this deck appeared in writing.......???? I'm totally puzzled by this......

Rainbowguy, seems to me like a forceing deck - somewhat a couple regular cards to flash and depending where you pick from you should know their card

Vlad_77, ropeadope's idea sounds like white bikes or maybe even a mental photagraphy type effect?

I`m sure it has been thought of before, was just a thought that popped in my head , besides it`s hard to beat a 3 phase trick. Especially one that would include a novelty like a Rainbow Deck.
It was off topic anyway but could be used as an addition to other Blank Deck routines. I love my Mental Photography Deck but can`t be given out, and I like to be able to freely give out a deck, if asked.

Was wondering would it work to use the Rainbow deck in Bannon's Stranger Gallery as the final deck reveal? Or would it confuse the routine?

This is a pretty late response!

In addition to the standard rainbow back routine the following effects are on the DVD
1. Rainbow Hot Rod is a little meh to me. I'm not keen on the die roll counting technique required.
2. Jack Ro Bats is a nice plus effect using the supplied gaffs. The Jacks alternately flip up side down then the backs change color from red Tally Ho circle backs (say) to Rider blue backs, then finally all backs of the Jacks are different! Easy to perform with that great back color change pay off. I showed my wife after two days of practice and polishing and she was suitably astonished. To enhance the routine I just purchased a Tally Ho circle back deck so I can present the Jacks from that deck and make it more than a packet trick.
3. Rainbow Joker Variation is not really a rainbow back routine. It uses a supplied Joker gag gaff to reveal the chosen card.
4. Rise, Rise, Rise is a presentation variation that provides a single color change before the big color change climax.
5. The rainbow variation. In this effect three spectators select three cards that at the reveal are shown to be found because they are "marked" -- they are only "marked" because they are the only rider blue backs in the deck.

All in all I am pleased with my purchase of the rainbow deck.

John Bannon already does that. He did it in his Penguin lecture, too.
