A gorgeous deck of cards with a devious secret feature from one of magic and mentalism’s greatest thinkers.

The “Apostles Deck” is a special collaboration between Luke Jermay and Vanishing Inc. On the surface, this Cartamundi-produced deck of custom playing cards is a thing of beauty. Its stunning design pairs perfectly with a soft and thin feel to make “Apostles Playing Cards” a dream to use.

Luke’s unrivaled attention to detail is also on full display. The back design was meticulously hand-illustrated by Stefan Eriksson. It makes “Apostles Playing Cards” a strikingly elegant alternative to standard “Bicycle Rider Back Playing Cards” without being over-the-top in a way that might arouse unnecessary suspicion form your audience. Just based on their look and feel alone, “Apostles Playing Cards” are a worthy candidate to be your new EDC.

But, that’s just the start. What truly sets “Apostles Playing Cards” apart is the customization options it has built right into the design. You can custom-tailor this deck to fit your exact needs.

A Custom Solution

Luke has probably spent more time working with marked playing cards than most magicians will in their entire lives. Throughout his endeavors, he realized that not every marked deck trick requires the same markings.

Oftentimes you don’t need to know the full suit and value of a playing card. You can perform miracles just by instantly knowing the position of the card or the color of the card. (Those familiar with Luke Jermay’s “Shuffled Out of this World” from “You’re Only Lying to Yourself” will immediately recognize the benefit of the latter).

The “Apostles Deck” design has been meticulously designed to leave inconspicuous space for you to mark the cards based on your needs. You can easily mark just the color, just the suit, just the value, or the entire identity of the card, in just a few seconds per card. These markings blend in perfectly with the design and are completely invisible to the untrained eye.

Each deck of “Apostles Playing Cards” comes with a 30-minute tutorial where Luke walks you through everything you need to know. He explains the different marking styles you can use and their various benefits. You get all this for a price that some basic custom decks cost on their own. This is designed to be your new favorite worker deck of cards.

Each deck of “Apostles Playing Cards” comes sealed in a custom tuck box with a duplicate Three of Clubs, matching Jokers and a specially-printed, criminally-underused card gimmick that is bound to become one of your new favorites after watching the tutorial.

Get your “Apostles Playing Cards” by Luke Jermay today! Available individually or in bricks (for when you realize you never want to leave home without them). Add 12 decks to your cart during our Buy 3, Get 1 Free Black Friday Sale and 3 of those decks will be free!

NOTE: For the best match when marking your "Apostles Playing Cards", you'll want to use a blue Ultra Fine Point Sharpie. They're usually only available in large packs, but we have individual ones available here.

William

The tutorial for the "Apostles" card deck by Luke Jermay is very well presented. It is interesting, instructional aspects are explained clearly, and his pronunciation of the words can be understood. His presentation is professional and not an exhibition of trying to be comical, telling jokes, or displaying foolish behavior. I do enjoy Luke Jermay's tutorial because they are to the point and actually teach the workings and features of the product.

This is a wonderful and very useful deck with its beautiful back design. It comes with a unique gimmicked joker and a great video demonstration by Luke Jermay showing how to use the gimmick in several ways for a different approach in card tricks. He further demonstrates how you can create your own individual style markings on the colorful back designs for a personalized marked deck.

You might ask youself why should you spend money on an unmarked deck to mark when you can get a Sharpie and any old unmarked Bicycle deck for a lot less. Well, you'll have to trust me, but this deck is well worth it. It is ingeneously designed with the most efficacious places on the back pattern to put your own marks. There is no way anyone will be able to figure out the marking system. It handles beautifully. Better still, you're supplied with a gaffed card, which is almost worth the price of the deck itself, that will allow you to do an extremely clean force by Lubor. I chuckled when I saw it because it's so Luke Jermay, the use of a idea lost to the sands of time that will blow minds. It was just like on the Penguin Lecture when Jermay baffled a roomful of mentalists by using a Franklin Taylor peek deck from the 1940s. He proves that there is much forgotten stuff that is better than the latest and greatest things released today. If you want to have fun experimenting with marked decks--and that great force--the Apostles are perfect.

Love Luke's take on most things...this deck a solid offering.

One note...Luke's video explanation of the marking process (it's not baked into the deck) is a little confusing because he very rationally explained his reasoning for using CSHD in his marks was a convoluted back to CHSD in his subsequent mentions (blame mental muscle memory). Video explanation should include a lower-third super that clarifies his misstatement.

Love you, Luke (and Vanishing, Inc.) It's the script supervisor (and college professor) in me that caught the continuity error.

This is worth buying. I am a huge fan of Luke's work and especially the marksman deck (MMD) which every Tamariz Stack fan should own. The extra cards included are fantastic and look forward to using them.
Minus a star as I would have really loved if Luke had touched on stacks generally or MMD like features. This deck will not replace an MMD deck without investment and deep thought from the reader.
