I was thinking when I was learning the breakthru card system that surely it would be so much easier to have a stacked marked deck with the markings marking the next card and thus not having to remember a system and also not having to glimpse ,
surely this has been done ?
whats a good marking system

The best way (in my thinking) is to use a memorized deck with the Ted Lesley marking system. Instead of marking the cards with the card name, use the stack value. That way, you can do any of the calculations and adjustments more quickly and naturally.

Using a marked and memorized deck is very powerful.

Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Funny, the same type of questions keep on coming up. I agree that the Lesley marking system (or Boris Wild) system is very good if you are close to the cards.

If you want to be able read marks from several feet away, then you must use "shade" (juice or luminous) solutions or pre-marked decks.

Yep, as Matt suggested, Roy Johnson's SUM deck has been on the market several years. Another newer one is Becker and Earl's "Devil's Deck". The latter uses the Osterling system.

The philosophical point really is if its stacked does it need to be marked..a p**k will clue you in..
unless in some way reading another card then clues you in to card out of view..but it marginal I think
BCS and memorise and your HnD

Dear Jezza,

The SUM deck should do exactly what you need. By looking at the back of the card, you can not only tell the identity of that card but of the card above and below it. In the package that Martin Lewis sells there is a VERY clever routine that makes excellent use of this principle...a real fooler!

I hope this helps,
Cody S. Fisher

P.S. The instructions also contain a routine by me...but I assure you I have no "financial interest" in the SUM deck...I just gave Martin permission to include my effect in the instructions!

I will suggest that Osterlind's BCS is a very thorough system in and of itself.

Therefore, although you could supplement it with memorization or markings, these are really not required. (You could always just mark a deck using Ted Lesley's system, then arrange it into the BCS stack.) There are several long and sometimes volatile strings of postings on Magic Café that debate BCS vs a memorized deck, including the clear and direct replies from Mr. Osterlind: you don't need to memorize the BCS.

The Deland's Automatic deck comes to mind. The top card identifies the position of any named card.

Mr. Osterlind himself has just released a system for memorizing his Breakthrough Card System stack. It costs ten bucks and is available on his web site.

I plan to get it and look it over very soon.

Larry Becker's new Demon Deck is stacked in the BCS and marked in a diabolical way! You should check it out. I don't know the website offhand, but you can search for it. Or maybe someone will chime in here with further details about it!

I also recommend the SUM Deck. I don't know much about the Demon Deck. It's looks similiar to the SUM Deck as far as markings. It's looks good. If you can memorize the Osterland System, I'd suggest that. However the SUM DECK, is one I use, is very easy to use. Ed, (Eddini).

I remember buying a deck that was a marked, organized, and stripper deck all in one. The cards were covered in tiny clocklike shapes, so that you could easily find any card in the deck just by viewing the back of the first card. It was remarkably quality, and still fans well to this day. (and it was only 6 bucks!) I can't remember the name but I found it in a local toyshop.
