There seems to be too conflicting thoughts. the first is that it trivalizes magic by making it seem everyday and mundane.

I say BS.

If you think, for a second, that people will not go home talking about the described trick, if presented correctly, then you havent been doing magic long.

I would buy the deck, switch it for the brainwave or id (more on id in a sec) and then turn to my friend and say something like, " you were asking me what I used to win the US slieght of hand competion. Let me show you"

Now people should be interested.

ask her to think of a card, unrap the "new" pack, and show there is a reveresd card. show its the right one. BAM.

as far as the ID goes, I think its worth the risk to take a chance with people not noticing that the cards arnt in new card order.

theyll be focusing on the face down card, and I don't think itll matter.

but if its an issue, use a brainwave.

that was a good suggestion.

Showing a trick to a friend but asking a stranger to help is a good ploy. Does it trivalize magic? not if your good...
