At the point when the deck can perform OOTW by itself or when each card has become a fully nutritious sandwich filling!

Lots of great comments. I like Bill's advice especially. I like to let some practice decks get really trashed, that way, if someone hands you an old ragged deck and asks you to show them something, you are familiar with handling dirty, old cards.

Practicing Mercury folds is another great idea.
Magic is the bacon in the breakfast of life.

Here is an idea:

Set your practice deck aside and get a new one. When you have two practice decks, use them to create a Phantasm gimmick. This is Jamie Daws awesome version of Roy Walton's Card Warp with a cool give-away.

Another idea for a retiring practice deck is to make 21st Century Phantom (Oz Pearlman) gimmicks and carry some of them with you as give-aways.

This is an effect where you ask for people to name any famous celebrity that comes to mind. You then produce a really cool card cutout that looks like that celebrity.

that's smart but when I try to learn a sleight of hand I think stick to good decks Smile but later when I know the sleights I will try it out with some old deck to learn that too.

Will definitely use the old decks to things like Mercury fold or other bend of the cards Smile
