Impromptu Invisible Deck

10.00 usd

Magic download (video) by Ernesto Melero ($10.00)

It doesn’t get any more direct than this. Any card is NAMED, and this card is shown to be the only reversed card in the deck. Rather than a gaffed deck, everything is totally normal and upon completion you can perform any effect with the same pack of cards. This makes Ernesto’s “Impromptu Invisible Deck” the perfect opener.

In the instructional download, you will learn all of the details, moves and nuances that make this routine so practical and deceptive.

Running time: 8 minutes 28 seconds

Note—Although Impromptu Invisible Deck uses a normal deck, it is not technically impromptu. A set up is needed.

    effe asks: That's great, but how much difficult is it? Does it requires particular sleight of hand like palmings, ect...?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: On a scale of 1 (easy) to 10 (hard), I would put this at a 6, maybe a 7 if you are new. There is one major sleight and a minor move involved. With study and practice this should be achievable by anyone.
    • 2. Andrew answers: This response scared me a bit. However, I still purchased this trick. Boy am I glad I did. The move is BRILLIANT and I would say a 6 for a brand new beginner. But a 4 for anyone that's comfortable with the classic moves, double lift etc.

    Stuart asks: Please clarify. The routine is referred to as "Impromptu," but one of the posts here refers to set-up time. Is this a "set-up" that is done under the nose of the spectator?

    Matt asks: Hi. If using a memorised deck, could I make a decision to do this effect (rather than another one I might choose if a different card were named) after the card is named. Or is the set up such that the performer has committed to doing this effect before asking the spectator to name a card? Thanks

    • 1. Carlos answers: The spectator has a free choice. There is a setup. The magician can do this effect or anything else. Personally, I think it works best with a Bart Harding stack (clears the awkwardly looking finale). If you call that "a memorized deck", the answer is still the same: you can opt do it or not, but there is no obvious reason why you wouldn't want do it, because it's very impressive (again, I think the finale can be improved with a stacked deck, mainly BH.
    • 2. Katherine answers: Almost. There is a small thing you would have to do when you take the deck out of the box, but that would be very easy to do on the offbeat, and could even be played as an honest mistake you fix out in the open. To summarise: Yes, but a tiny modification to the setup would have to be done in front of the spectator.

Customer reviews for Impromptu Invisible Deck



It looks exactly like it does in the trailer, ever time. It is easy, has no angles, and in my opinion looks cleaner than the regular invisible deck. Amazing.



LOVE THIS! This is the best $10 magic trick/ download I've ever bought



I was a bit skeptical... It sounds a bit too good to be true. I was proved wrong though. If anything, the trailer shows a worst case scenario! Really enjoyed learning it. Anyone who has basic card handling skills should be able to do this within minutes.



Marvelous, simply maevelous.



As noted this is not an impromptu effect. It requires a setup. Maybe "The No-Way Invisible Deck Routine" would be better suited. This does not detract from the fact, I was tricked, and I can see myself using this. I would also add since this is not impromptu the slights and moves required could be eliminated by using a single gaff card, (In fact I have more than one gaff type in mind) easily removed at the end of the trick without any heat, and then the deck could continue to be used in a normal deck routine without it. I am of the mindset if the effect can be done and remain fully examinable without any sleights, then don't use sleights. If it were not for the setup required, and coming up with rationale to have some alone time with a borrowed deck I would not be so forward about using a gaffs. For me personally, I doubt I would find myself in a position where I would need to perform this with a cold deck. Regardless of method used, I highly recommend getting this. At $10 its worth every penny and more.



I'll agree with the reviewer above and say that this was the best $10 I've spent on a single magic trick ever. The method is great, and the move is not too difficult to learn, but will take a bit of practice to get it looking really good. At least in a close-up setting, this is way better than the traditional gimmicked invisible deck, for sure!



Time to throw out that 12.99 gaffed deck that can't be examined. The best part of this is that you can continue doing magic with the same deck after the effect. For real...if you're at all experienced with card magic, card sleights,and misdirection you will likely replace your gaffed deck for this little gem.
