I came up with that idea, but if one were to point out that Marlo beat me by 50 years, I would not be surprised as it is simple enough an idea.


That's a lovely way to ring in a stack. This style (though not the method) is also my preferred way. If you can, ring in the stack under the guise of an effect.

The major break point is the riffle shuffle. In some people's hands, that's just a disaster... But you have to take these risks.

Histed Heisted is going to take a bit of time. So the next effect I plan to become intimately familiar with is Lie Sleuth. I haven't trotted this out just yet, but I have tried out what I'll call "Poor Man's Lie Sleuth". In this version, once the card has been identified, you hold a break at the point of removal and move straight into the question/answer lie-detection phase. It plays pretty well (and instantly resets, since you can finish by inserting their card back into the deck.) I've had some fun with this as an incredibly impromptu effect. It is by no means ideal, of course. Thus it's name.
