It was just released by Murphy's so it will probably get reviewed soon.

Looks like a s*d* c*t m*r*g* deck to me.

"the card in the envelope is always the card they choose."

Yes, BUT is it always the card that they CUT TO, or the card that "they choose"? The card in the envelope might be the only outcome but that doesn't mean that the procedure is always as clean as shown. I can't really comprehend how it could always be the card they directly cut to unless it uses a c***p in which case this would really suck and not work most of the time.

Can anyone please confirm?

It may very well be a soda cat morago deck... but I doubt it.

There are hints in the video that the deck is gimmicked. If it's what I think it is or similar (see above) then the procedure should be the same every time.

To paraphrase... “i am not sure how this works. Can someone please tell me?”

Big difference between "can someone please tell me how it works" and "is the procedure always the same or is the effect description wording misleading?".

"Can anyone please confirm" wasn't directed at asking if it uses a c***p, I was asking to confirm if the procedure is always as described.

Can anyone confirm the taste of the soda or that the cat gets along with small children? Or is that phishing?

I think the trick is called “No Way Two Way” and if it is, there’s another step in there. The spectator has to select a small packet of cards, counts those cards, and uses that number to select a card...


No you are soooo wrong. Nothing is missed out 😀

Great to hear caffeine-challenged magicians are not excluded and an indifferent cat is included in this release. But let's not go any further, to avoid revealing the method. After all, this is the trick that CAN be explained.

If that would have been the case, I would have been very upset. That is my signature move. It will be released shortly in a limited edition, containing a 1 sentence PDF-file, for $ 175,- .

But seriously, this can be done almost exactly like that with a 'moraga' deck. Only the spectators hand position would change.

The question is, is the Soda Cat Marago deck in the box and out of the box at the same time?

That would be the modified, limited edition Schrödinger's Soda Cat Marago deck.

So obviously it's the slit card box experiment. Multiple outs?

The real question is - why an effect which is advertised as a “complete sold out at Blackpool Magic Convention” an year ago still don’t have even one single review from a buyer...

Other important question is how this effect compared to the 21st Century Canasta by the same author which looks completely the same in the trailer videos (with the only difference in the way you show the card prediction- a photo in phone or card in envelope) which now is in sale for 6 usd...

And probably the most important- is the cut method sure enough (close to 100 percent success) or it is based on a method used for example in the 5221 effect which is not so ok when the spectator cuts...
