For years it was Daryl's "Untouched" with the Ammar finesse added. Last year I started doing Regal's "Self-Evident" and it has become my new favorite.

I cannot remember where Stewart James' Further Than That is published. Could someone tell me the book (please, not a video or DVD -- I know it is on vol. 1 of EMCM)

Thanks for any help to the cite. A Private Message would be be splendid!

Invisible Deck gets my strongest vote, and Paul Curry's Out of this World is quite close too!

I like really self worked trick:
"Two last cards match" from Tremaine Video "Comercial CloseUp Acts".

I have a card location/revelation that I came up with, nothing earth shattering or new here folks. I call it mine because I came up with the idea independently of any printed material. The spec/assistant signs the card they have picked then placing it on the deck cuts the deck to their heart's content. I then locate the card by looking at the back of the cards, sign the one I believe is theirs, and then give the card that now has their signature and mine on it to them to keep.

I like Brainwave Deck. I use it in the form of the Invisible Deck.

I like the Invisible Deck. It is probably one of my favorites.

Nick Trosts's routine where the 12 face cards are shown in 6 mismatched pairs, then magically the face cards of each color pair up together. It's in card college 1, among other places.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

The trick that is known as Perfect Match, and probably 10.000 other names.
I wish I knew whose trick it originally was, and what it's called (it's published 100's of times), but the effect is pretty devastating for a routine that is completely selfworking and ungaffed.

It's the effect where you or a spectator deals of cards to any point they like, you mark the spot with an ace....repeat that procedure....and reveal that the place where they inserted the aces is exactly next to the other two aces.
(Or same procedure with a rainbow deck, blank deck, or whatever)

Talking about Nick Trost, maybe a good self-trick could be too his "Eight Cards Brainwave".

All the best magic,

I think was called "Live At Five" but I used esp cards and they "Match" when all is said and done.

Gets very good response.

Oh sure, I can spell "Antidisestablishmentarianism", but I can't type t-h-e.

Paul Cummins has been doing what he calls the 'ACME CARD WORKSHOP.' Everyone knows Paul for his sleight of hand, but he has a soft spot for good self-working tricks and this workshop is packed with them. There is one called the three pile trick that will stump just about any magician that don't know it, and is just as effective for laymen. And also included is what I consider to be the best "DO as I DO" in the world (this one will kill ya, but you'll die happy). And there is a lie detector of Gary Plant's that is fun to do as well.

Also I love "The World's Gratest Magician," from Semi Automatic Card Tricks Vol-1. "Quadruple Prediction" is another great trick from that tome. Of course if I listed all the things I liked from the Semi-Auto books, it would take all day.

Anyway Just my 2 cents

Take care

There is a nice effect called The Piano Trick. You can find it in The Royal Road to Card Magic.

It could become a killer when performed as a miracle.

Overkill, I'm not sure who it's by, but I think it might be Harris, Ackerman and Emberg if my memory serves me correctly. Also untouched by Daryl is a great effect!!!!

Galaxy by Paul Harris.

It's relatively easy to perform, it's amazing, and cleaner in my view than other Out of This World handlings.
