Wondering if anyone can add to this list of stack destruction effects, most notable ones that come to my mind and are my favorites are:
-maximum risk
-everybodys lazy

thank you all and keep stacking

Good topic!

I'd add Ehler's 3 card location, can't remember the actual name off the top of my head.

John Cornelius has an effect called Threefold:
Three spectators cut a portion of the deck and remember the bottom card. Then they shuffle their packets. Magi names each card before getting the packet containing it back.
Sometimes I perform it by having one spectator cut to a card under the table and pocket it unseen. Then three others cut a packet and remember the bottom one. Every one shuffles his packet (i demonstrate with the remaining cards).
I take the second of the cut packets and fan it face up. Spectator goes with his finger over the cards, I pretend to do muscle reading. By studying this packet I have all the missing information to name all chosen cards immediately!

Afterwards some (non prediction) versions of shuffle bored still can be done...

My understanding of shufflebored is that it resets pretty much instantly if you want it to... or am I wrong?

EDIT: I'm wrong. Unless we're talking about a deck stacked only for shufflebored. Then I'm not wrong.

Just found the mentioned Steve Ehlers effect, it's in fact called "The Three-Card Location" and is in Ackermann's "Las Vegas Kardma" p. 173f.
It's almost the same effect as described by me above, but easier and better (the "memorization" of the second packet is great...).

Good opportunity to use the great Elmsley gag from his book test:
while discerning the second spectators cards, say to third spectator:
Are You thinking of the ...,yes? Please wait until it's Your turn...
