Where could I find card effects that use a borrowed deck, well mixed and always remain in the spectator hands?

Well, this should probably be in the Card Section, but Stewart James: The James File will keep you busy for a few decades.

Also check Al Mann's "No Toccaire".

Al Mann's No Toccaire was the reason for my post...

Yaniv: your topic may be too broad. Mann's specific books are getting harder to find. If you are looking for mentalism and cards then you might consider rephrasing your topic. Hope this may help you.

I meant that Al Mann's book led me to think about "test conditions" effects with cards.

OK, now I understand. Maybe you want to start a new topic on this.

I must recommend an excellent effect in volume 2 of AM/PM magazine. It is presented as a prediction effect and could be a stunner. It could be done with a borrowed deck (and a few moments alone) and will definetly be perceived by the audience as not being handled by the performer.
Great effect!

May I recommend the card books by Lewis Jones? ALL his effects can be done with a borrowed, regular, unprepared deck. Some of them are 'test conditions' effects and involve little or no handling of the cards. Most are sleight free as well, relying more on ingenuity than sleight or manipulation. Search your nearest dealer or book supplier for titles, but 'Cardiograms', 'Lusions', 'Spring of 52', 'Shampagne' and his other books are all inexpensive, worth a read, and packed with good and overlooked ideas.

Hi Yaniv,
Ken Krenzel's book Ingenuities has some cool stuff. The frist chapter is called
out of hand. It has A routine called Simulacrum Mirabundum. That's an Any card at at any number. and a handleing of Paul Carry's Open Prediction called Remote Chance.
Speaking of Curry You mite take A look at his new book. He does A lot of that kind of stuff! Also Simon Aronson does A lot of that kind of stuff. That all I can think of right now.

There are some effects like these in Steve Beam's "Semi-Automatic Card Tricks"
