I'm stuck into this routine, but a great deal of tricks need me to do a MArlo's tilt. I have not got a clue about what this is. Any help appreciated.

Card College Volume 4 page 997 is a nice reference for this move Clopper. It's a relatively simple move. Any magi could have you up to speed in moments.

You could read the book Marlo's Full Tilt and Complete Devilish Miracle by Marlo. This move is also sometimes called the Vernon Depth Illusion if that helps.

Check out Daryl's Encyclopedia of Card Sleights #6, I believe.
Sugar Rush is here! Freakishly visual magic.

I believe it was Vernon who originated the depth illusion with cards. Marlo added his own refinements to it and called it the "tilt".

Marlo popularized Vernon's "Thrust Illusion" by calling it "Tilt" Funny how this kind of thing happens way too often in magic.

there's also a psychological feint that goes with the move...where you "accidentally" first push out several cards from the middle of the deck, reinforcing the spectator's view that the card is being buried in the middle of the deck.

Taken together, the two can be quite effective.

The tilt, the feint and a few other variations are explained on Daryl's Ambitious Card Video. A lot of other techniques are also demonstrated and explained which could be used in a routine.
