In my ambicious routine I use the finale with the omni deck and I do the switch using the bend card with pop up misdirection. Anyway I don't like the bend of the cards so much so I would like to ask some ideas for another good misdirection move in a ambicious card routine that makes the spectator misdirected away so that I can do the deck switch with the omni deck.

Thank you!

Talk to Shawn Farquar. In his lecture, he teaches a great switch!

Agreed, Shawn's switch is fantastic. You can find it in his Penguin Live Lecture.

Mark James actually teaches a nice ACR/ Omni Deck ending on his "Super Charged Classics Vol. 1." Nothing ground breaking but it works well.

Chris Randall just taught his version on his recent penguin live lecture. He does the switch without a jacket.

Only trouble with the Farquhar switch is that its used under the guise of getting a sharpie for them to sign their card. As you're looking for the omni as the finale to your routine you'll have had the card signed already - yes you could use the omni deck throughout your ambitious with tilts but there wouldn't be much variety to the routine.

What I do is reveal the card in my wallet (folded), as they remove the card from the wallet and unfold the card I switch the deck in my left jacket pocket for the omni, you've got plenty of time to make the switch. You can also learn this from Martin Sandersons Corporate Close Up DVD (he has a slighly different handing using an envelope)

Another idea I learned from John Carey is to finish your ambitious with a signature fusion effect, as your spectators hold the 2(?) cards between their hands which fuse into one, you have ample time to switch the omni in. Its in his Further Spotlight ebook (called Clearly impossible)

Nowadays I no longer combine Omni with Ambitious and instead use the Omni deck for a separate routine (Bill Abbotts CTRL ALT DELETE) I just purchased the V Deck which I'll replace my omni with all together to see what gets better reactions.

I use card to mouth, wallet or envelope as misdirection for the deck switch. It flies right by the spectators.

I read this book a while back. It has a lot more ideas than you will ever need but its a great resource on the deck switch.

In a few weeks I will release my "Master Card Routine" as an instant video download (on my website). At the end of the video I teach my Omni Deck handling / switch...and IMO it is quite fooling...very different motivation / handling than other versions on the market...Editing the video this week...should be up by middle of next week!

I used to perform Derek Dingle's Regal Royal Flush using the Omni Deck and exactly as many cards as necessary to perform the effect (the signed selection plus four of a kind)

No deck switch was necessary; the Omni was in play from the outset.

You'd be surprised how long you can have it out there without it being noticed.

I still like to do what Farquar does so to counter the issue that Chamberlain rightly points out "Only trouble with the Farquhar switch is that its used under the guise of getting a sharpie for them to sign their card. As you're looking for the omni as the finale to your routine you'll have had the card signed already..." I do the following:
- have one spectator sign the card at the beginning of the routine & then after the 'pop up' move I then say "let's make this card a group souveneer and do one more thing with it" & I get out a sharpie to ask them to all do the switch, & I then do the deck/omni switch and proceed.
- to be honest, after the climax of the ACR before the omni deck (eg pop up move), they are reacting so much to the magic that in the real world I find the next few moments the spectators are misdirecting themselves and that this is very much an 'off beat' moment. Thus sometimes I do the switch then or sometimes I capitalise on the process of them passing the card around for people to sign to do the switch (whilst maintaining a banter and patter line as well). Thus I often do the switch without even needing to use the ruse of openning up my jacket (if you know SF's work you'll know what I mean). I still do get a sharpie out for everyone to sign the card - but I've either done the switch already or I do the switch whilst they are passing the card around for group signatures.

Any effect that isolates the card (IMO) should be enough misdirection to switch the deck. The phase prior to the finale could be Card Under...anything. Card to wallet/mouth/forehead. When the card rejoins the deck the work is done.

My handling for the Omni Deck has just been released. It is the ending from my Master Card Routine. If you are interested you can check it out at www.magic-trick.net

It is quite different in both method and plot than most Omni Deck routines on the market...

This is an excellent tip. I love Shawns work but I think that it is not needed or justified at the ending of an acr.

Check out Cody's work on the omni deck (Master Card Routine), it's like nothing I've seen before. His routine went straight into my repertoire.
