Looking for enlightenment here since I rarely buy the "next big thing." The title is "Unshuffled." Is this related to the Paul Gertner effect of the same name?

At first glance it may look like the OCD deck but there is MUCH more included in here than a deck becoming "unshuffled." Anton's a good guy and his card work is excellent.

I just got mine in today. I knew exactly what to expect so I am happy with my purchase. I have plenty of ideas on how I want to use this gaffes deck. Yes it is 100% gaffed. I will be using it for more than just the "hey look shuffled deck. Hey look new deck order." This pack has a lot of potential for those with the imagination for it. I'm glad that I bought it.

How is the DVD? I know that was one of the biggest letdowns of OCD Deck, so I assume they took advantage of that?

So far the DVD is very well put together. I say so far because I haven't had time to watch it fully due to helping with extended family issues but I look forward to finishing it. Anton goes over the deck and handling in detail. He shows several tricks from the most basic to adding sleight of hand or adding regular deck cards to the pack. The deck has many uses and I am glad that he took his time to show them. The DVD is an hour long which is lengthier than a lot of instructional videos out these days. A lot of magicians are just selling there products now with very little information included. That is not always a problem but it is nice to have as much info as possible to get our wheels turning.

Got mine today. Its what I expected, and Im very happy with this. The DVD is fantastic- produced extremely well and Anton is an excellent teacher. Very easy to comprehend and he offers some very good routines. The packaging is great as well, too. If you were on the fence, don't hesitate to pick this up.

Unshuffled by Anton James review:

Simple and clean packaging.
This deck of cards can be deadly in the right hands.

My favorite presentation is to force a card, spread the deck showing its completely mixed (random) asking the person if they still see their card, close up the spread and instantly spread the deck showing it is in NOW in new deck order and a single card has vanished from the deck! Their card! Which you now produce from anywhere you want!

I'm sure there are a lot of great ideas and routines with this deck and for only 35 bucks you'll have a ton of fun with it!

Finally got a chance to watch UNSHUFFLED and play with deck. It's really a great product! The DVD is very comprehensive and Anton gives a lot of ideas on how to use the included gimmick deck or parts of it. The Magic Estate put a lot of work into this one and it shows. I agree that the presentation just mentioned by RSteele is probably my favorite too but there are a lot of really practical and strong routines included on the DVD. Watch out - I might just ring this in on some un-expecting magicians who are familiar with my false shuffle work and shuffled deck to new deck order. Be warned!

Just picked this up and only have good things to say about it. I'm really lovin' it.
A million things you can do with it and fun to come up with your own routines.
I already have a few ideas I really like. Plus, the DVD gives you a ton of ideas to use as a starting point.

Nice too that the included deck is super high quality and silky smooth.
It's a bike deck but seems much better than your typical off the shelf bikes.

Ring this baby in at the right time and jaws will drop for sure.
And you'll get credit for being a top notch card handler.
If you can do faros perfectly AND reliably, or any other pure SOH method, then you obviously don't want or need this deck.
But for the rest of us it's a great tool because it is really more of a utility gimmick that can be used in so many ways leading up to or incorporating the NDO reveal.
Even if you don't use it it's one of those things that's simply great fun to mess with and fool yourself.
Definitely not a one trick pony like most gaffed decks. This one will really inspire you to create your own unique routine.
I wouldn't say it's cheap but you do get great value and with care should last a good long time.
I'll probably get another one so I can have one to play with and keep one just for performances.
Highly recommended!!!

Is there a way we can order a red backed deck on the site? I didn't see the color back option.
