The photographic deck will be released worldwide as soon as we fill our backers orders!

So don't worry - you'll have your chance!

Mnemonica is a must read no matter what stack one chooses!

I was going to do Mnemonica, but for my uses, Dyment's stack is best and very easy. I don't plan on using it so much and with a quick shuffle at the end, the stack, not easy to detect, is gone. Most of the great stacked deck effects are stack independent.

I used the Breakthrough stack for a few years. Then I went to Mnemonica. Once I learned it well, I believe it was better and more versatile.

Yes. Woodini, my plan is to learn Dyment's stack almost instantly. Once I see how useful it is, I might go to Mnemonica if I start to use it more. Mnemonica is usually
agreed on as the most versatile stack, and where you would tend to go if you use stacks a lot.

It depends on your card-handling skills. If you want a stack with a bunch of built-in effects (albeit not of your choosing), then those like Mnemonica are the way to go. If you want a stack with an architecture that enables an even wider variety of effects, then not so much. Top card man Alan Ackerman has written, "I personally feel the tetradistic stack is the strongest of all stacks.", and this is why my own QuickerStack was designed as such.

There is a good reason why Juan Tamariz now uses his own structurally symmetric stack (his "Exhibition Stack").

Thanks Doug. I knew if I were to pick a stack to learn, it should be your QuickStack. Your post is actually great.
Few people understand stacks as well as you do. So I can trust you. Happy New Year.
