Customer reviews for The Reformation





Definitely not an easy trick, but it should be in every card magician's repertoire. The reason is it can be performed using practically any style (e.g. talking or silently), and it's very simple for your spectators to follow along.

The most difficult part is having your hands appear natural and relaxed, as it is a little sleight-of-hand heavy. Moreover, you may need to rewind the tutorial many times, as there are A LOT of details to memorize. However, it is definitely worth the practice (be sure to use a mirror!) and also a great one to perform virtually. Done properly, it is an extremely powerful effect. Get ready to rip cards!



I love his work !





A great video, starts with some hstory of how he got into this partucular trick, also on this tutorial he covers this in great detail.



I LOVE this effect. Its so clean and crisp and it nice me the impression, that if I were REALLY about to do magic (I mean of course I can, but you know...), this is how it would look.

The teaching on this is second to none, and whilst it is not simple mechanically, it is detailed, and explained exceptionally well, in great detail and with great care.

Guy takes you through every step in meticulous detail, taking care to give a thorough explanation of every single movement and leaves nothing out. Nothing is left to chance, and the whole thing is put together exceptionally well.

I am really looking forward to putting the time into this effect and getting to grips with it to make it a part of my standard repertoire and being able to wow audiences and blow them away with a REAL piece of visual magic that they can keep and remember.

If you are looking for a piece of magic to really set yourself apart from all of the other effects out there that look like this, but are not even nearly as clean or as well put together, then you are in the right place.

Thanks Guy and Everyone at Vanishing. Inc.





great instruction and an amazing trick



Yeah i got this and the description its totally accurate. There are some good sleights tho and a trick..
