The Invisible Deck is such a simple concept, it's a great venue to showcase your own creative thoughts. Do we really need to be led every single step of the way?


Having read your comment I just have to respond. You have a total of 14 posts since Jan of 2007. So I checked your posts for the last 30 days and you beat up on a superb use of the muscle pass of another magi and now this post. What is your problem?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

I also picked this up. I am looking forward to seeing some new ideas for it. Thanks for recommending it everyone...

This DVD (plus ID) is Jay Sankey's commanding instructional and clever exploration of Invisible Deck on Invisible Deck. I enjoy this DVD enormously on the world's best trick deck of cards. Also it's great to watch Eddie Field's classic "ID" presentation as well as handling ideas by Dr. Jaks and Michael Schwartz.

Very nice indeed. Some nice effects and thoughts.
Maybe I missed something, but Sankey overlooked some things that everybody with a ID will experience sooner or later: the called out card is the bottom or topcard. I hoped Sankey would come up with a perfect setup with the most popular cards in the middle of the deck. I can think of some cards myself but he has decades of experience.

If the card were the top card or, actually second from the top as it could be the top card, then all you would have to do is cut the deck and then spread.

If it were the bottom card couldn't you just say, "Look, at the back of the deck, I reversed one card..."

Hasn't happened to me but these are a couple of ideas.

Yep, ditto! Also, I've never thought of the method of resetting the ID instantly, like Jay suggested, for a 2nd miracles! Smile

I've known of the ID "workings" for some years...always felt kind of "non-comfortable" doing it. This has me interested and probably will be the next thing I get.

This is an opportunity - when I see this, I tell the participant that I will raise their card to the top (or bottom) of the deck, give the cards a rap with my knuckles - and presto, an even better trick - the card is turned over - and positioned.

I don't consider a high post count on a magic forum any kind of status symbol. Maybe I spend my time practicing and performing?

In answer to your question, I have a problem with effects based entirely on a method, as in the muscle pass example you cited. I also think that magicians should find their own way in magic, as opposed to being completely spoon fed.

Do you think otherwise?

If you actually watched the DVD, you'd realize that Jay is NOT spoon feeding. In fact he even says on the DVD that his goal is to inspire us to create our own handling. His mission for the DVD was to show us how "untapped" the ID really is thus inspiring to "tap" it.

Sometimes you need to see other people's ideas to create your own. Do you think otherwise?

For the people that have ordered this, what was your average ship time? I am in Upstate NY, which is fairly close to him. I ordered it on 3/3/08 yet I still have not received it. I did contact them today for an order status. Just wondering what your past experieces were when ordering directly from Jay.

Thanks all.

Even though you're in upstate NY, the package still has to go through customs and all that.

I always have found Jay to ship very fast. He cares from much about his customers.

When Jay releases a DVD , he gives multiple handlings,lotsa ideas and psychology of doing things a certain way. This comes from a lifetime on the road performing. And he wants to inspire folks to come up with their own handlings.

It was not really the total time of the shipping, it was more me. When I know something is in the mail I just cant wait to get my little hands on it...

I'm the same way. It's exciting getting magic delivered to your door and the wait, when you know it'sd something incredible, can make me antsy.

I have always, and will always perform an ID effect. It is one of the strongest effects to laymen one can perform.
