"Fade Away" and you will find it on his 22 Blows To The Head DVD. He also sold it under the name Brainwash.

And also in The Definitive Sankey, volume 3, pp. 1421-1423 as Fade Away. Again, I've used the ***** for YEARS but never thought of using it for a Blizzard type effect. I may not agree with some of Sankey's marketing tactics but there is no denying that he has created soe amazingly innovative magic as well as dusting very old methods and applying them in compelling ways.

Thanks Magico! I couldn't remember the name of the routine but I knew I had it somewhere!

Best,
Vlad

A little different than what you may be after, but in Tyler Wilson's book "Dominatricks", he includes something called the Fade Change by Jack Parker in the left-handed edition, that is a crazy visual way of vanishing all the ink off the face card of the deck. You could either be working with a blank deck behind the face card, or do a reverse thumb fan to reveal a "blank deck" Smile

This sounds promising for walk around... I really like it! Thanks man! So many freaking ideas! My fingers hurt from trying them out!

I would like to add Kyle Purnell's Blank Inside to this list of blank deck tricks.

Blank inside, released by Vanishing Inc., is a "...blizzard type effect that has no deck switch, gimmicks, or equivoque", can be done strolling, and ends clean, with a strong 1+2 finish that I doubt anyone will see coming.

I like that this effect gives me options to go along with Sanders Alpha Deck, which is another trick that should be added to this list.

On November 1, 2007 I posted The Bizarre Blanks on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum (page 117 of Gerald Deutsch's Perverse Magic: The First Sixteen Years) where after performing a few card effects the magician has a woman select a card and then, using an eyeglass cleaner pressed against the woman's finger and tells her the name of her card.

Then when he looks for her card he finds to his surprise and confusion that the entire deck is now blank.

One of my absolute favorite blank deck routines is Jon Allen’s “Rule of three”. I have residencies at various establishments 7 days a week and have been using rule of three in my set for the past 4 years. I literally just purchased my first replacement deck last weekend( so you know it holds up).

BUT....................... to give variety,

I will add that if I’m not using Rule of Three as my blank deck routine, my go to substitute is Anthony Miller’s “ Colossal Blizzard”

After rocking with both of these routines for the past several years, I can confidently say they have my stamp of approval.

Suzanne’s Blank Ambition and Gregory Wilson’s Name Tag routine(s) are based on my Blank Ambition routine that was published in Ruminations Magazine vol1 #5 1986. You might want to track that down, or look for it in John Bannon’s Card Corner Column in The Linking Ring.
