For me, it's neither of those. On the rare occasion I perform a "story deck" I play it as though I'm spontaneously coming up with an interesting and funny story which is being driven by the random order of the cards. Sometimes I'll turn a card or two over and pretend to be thinking hard for a way to work these values into the story and then upon succeeding I feign as much amusement as those listening to the story. It's a VERY different take on a story deck than Malone's Sam the Bellhop, for example.

To answer your question, what is the magic of a story deck? You are!

Hi there Steven. I do the same as you with Lilly Long Legs Story by Simon Lovell. I have something you might like to try. Reverse faro the deck before you case it. Then as you are talking about creating a story from a shuffled deck, you can actually give it a riffle shuffle. Make it a very tidy one, then spread for the Tamariz subtlety before pushing two halts together. Now you can just take off the top five or six cards and start telling the story taking new cards off the top of the deck when needed. Because of the shuffle and the way you are taking cards out of order from the top few it really looks like you are making the story up as you go. ü
