Favorites with a normal deck of cards? Too numerous to mention. However, for the quick set-up from a normal deck, Harry's Impromptu Out of this Universe is ingenious, and my personal favorite of the "quick set up" category. Lynn

I have several favorite impromptu card tricks, the following come into my mind at the moment:

Out of this world from a shuffled deck
Ambitious card
2 card monte (David Blaine(?))
3 cards across (Royal road to card magic)
The invisible card (Giobbi's CC3)
Reverse engineering (James Brown's Professional Opportunist)
Caught three times (James Brown's Professional Opportunist)
Double exposure (Asi Wind)
Gemini calling (Giobbi's CC Lightest)
Four 4 following (Kimlat's Roadrunner cull)
Three cards under a box (Hollingworth's Drawing room deceptions)
Blessed poker (Aragon's Book in English)
Connection (This is one of my creations: one spectator selects a card, her partner reads her mind and also finds her card proving the mental connection between them. No stooges, no magnets, no color changing thimbles, just a borrowed deck of cards and some basic sleights.)

Just to piggyback on what Harry listed above, ALL of the tricks can be done with a borrowed deck. Any set-ups required are quick and easy and can be done in the process of looking through the cards, etc.
