Level One By Christian Grace

This is a slow-motion, visual vanish of a deck of cards.

What does it look like?

You have a card chosen and replaced in the pack. The cards, in clear view, are gently waved, and half the pack slowly disappears. Another wave of the remaining cards and all the cards vanish. Except one. The selection.

"Level One" allows you to visually, gradually vanish a deck of cards until you're left with just one card. And this card is completely examinable.

  • No flaps
  • No magnets
  • No threads

The gimmick is unbreakable. It's one piece and has no moving parts. It will never wear out or need replacing.

The best part of "Level One" is that you can learn it within minutes. It works with any pack of cards and you can perform it surrounded. This was our sellout, hit trick at Blackpool 2019. Get yours today before it sells out again!

What you will get:

  • Solid State gimmick that will last a lifetime
  • Detailed online video instructions

"Incredibly visual and convincingly magical."Cyril

"The best deck vanish that I've ever seen."David Berglas

"Level ONE is a Game-changer." Ollie Mealing

"Level ONE is so versatile. I can't wait to use this." Think Nguyen

"Level ONE is the perfect illusion."Michael Vincent

    mark asks: Do you end clean?

    • 1. Robert answers: It involves a gimmick that can concealed in your hand. After the deck vanish, in the action of turning over the remaining card (the spectator's selection), you can steal the gimmick. You can leave it "palmed" or casually go to your pocket as you hand out the card to end completely clean. One of the performances shows each half of the deck jumping to your back pocket. The magician removes each half and place them on the spectator's outstretched palm. In that case, after the second half vanishes leaving only there card, you have a perfectly logical motivation for one hand to go to your pocket (to get the second half) and you could ditch the gimmick at that time to end clean.

    Rick asks: The vanish looks good. The cleanup looks ok. But how do you get into the vanish from card selection. What's the reset like. Good for strolling (repeated, closeup use)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Reset is nothing. You get a solid state gimmick. You can ring it in like an omnideck.

    Robert asks: Great looking vanish. Any video clips coming showing a full routine? I understand the vanish but am curious about getting into position (ditching the deck and ringing in the gimmick).

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Think of it like omni deck. You need to do a switch, but can do it when the heat is off.

    Thomas asks: Can’t it be used as a deck production from one card to half the deck to the whole deck. (AKA in reverse)

    • 1. Thomas answers: Can*
    • 2. Andrew answers: In theory yes, but would be harder, and less clean then the vanish

    Thomas asks: Totally one handed?

    • 1. Sebastian answers: The vanish is one handed but to make a full routine you will need two hands in order to achieve everything.

    Thomas asks: The ad says, “slow-motion, visual vanish“. Can it be done with a slow shake?

    • 1. Sebastian answers: Depends on how slow you are thing to do it. I have not yet received it byt from the video , i wouldnt go to slow in the vanish, but that can only be said once we receive our gimmicks!

    Thomas asks: Do instructions tell you how to get from a thought of card to their card being the last card remaining?

    • 1. Sebastian answers: The instructions dont cover any routines. It is just instructing you on the workings of the gimmick. You will have to come up with your own routines.
    • 2. Daryl answers: I think Thomas' question may be from someone rather new to the art of card handling. If I may, I would suggest they learn the classic Pass, perhaps the most important sleight any card handler should learn at the outset of their training.

    Brian asks: Can this can be done with an ACR routine? Is the gimmick easy to ring in?

    • 1. Andrew answers: This is perfect for ACR in fact this is my replacement for the omnideck at the end of a ACR. The video instructions will also teach you how to bring it into play, and isn't very difficult but will take a little practice like most effects

    Brian asks: What are the storage requirements of this gimmick? Can it withstand being stored in sub zero temperatures and temps in the upper 90’s without warping? Asking for a friend.

    • 1. Andrew answers: Without saying what the gimmick is, I can say that I wouldn't worry about storage of it. The gimmick is made of a strong material, and I regularly have it in my side pockets when performing in hot temperatures without fear of damage. While I've not personally tested in sub zero, I actually can't see any reason why that would damage the gimmick considering what it is made of.
    • 2. Brian answers: I’m talking about storage year round in a vehicle in Chicagoland. Temps get very cold and hot here. As I carry many gimmicks to have nearby at all times. I can’t keep them all on hand at all times.

    Robert asks: Just purchased and watched the video. Totally did not predict the nature of the gimmick -- very inventive! One thing I would ask of Christian is to provide a video that does include a full routine, be it an ACR or whatever, that shows how he rings in/out because that part isn't clear and leaves me with a lot of potentially clunky maneuvering. The video doesn't have to be public -- just for those of us who have purchased the gimmick.

    • 1. Christian answers: Yes I do provide full performances and routines AND content will be continually added. There are full routines and performances in the private Level one fb group. You can access the group via the tutorial link page from Friday 12th April 2019! Enjoy :)

    Marlin asks: 1. The ad states "You have a card chosen and replaced in the pack. The cards, in clear view, are gently waved, and half the pack slowly disappears.", but in answered questions it indicates there is NO routine with this, no explanation or instruction of HOW to have a card chosen and then revealed at the end, is that correct?? 2. Why does everyone keep referring to "Ringing in" the gimmick etc???? I first thought it was a typo for BRINGING in the gimmick, but the term is used over and over. What is "Ringing"??

    • 1. Joschka answers: Ringing in a gimmick = bringing a gimmick into play. I understand the confusion. Magician lingo, I suppose.

    Eloy asks: Really nice looking vanish! Once the card and gimmick are prepared, can you leave them on the table before the vanish happens, so you can have your hands free before the effect happens?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The gimmick could not be left on the table.
    • 2. Christian answers: In the four of a kind table production taught on the private level one fb group I teach a way of storing the gimmick with the box ‘hands free’

    Lawrence asks: For those who don’t use Facebook, can those videos be made available in some other format?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: I would recommend making a "fake" Facebook account—that way, not only do you get access to the videos, you also can ask Christian questions and share ideas with the growing Level One community.
    • 2. Danny answers: Vanishing Inc. - with all due respect, you never answered the question...not all of us use Facebook. Some of us do not use it for very strong reasons and so setting up a 'fake' account is not really an option. So, we are still wondering if the videos will be made available to none FB users? Let's hope that you figure out a way to include all of your customers....
    • 3. Robert answers: I agree. I'm not on FB anymore and am not willing to set up a fake account. I realize that's my issue and Christian's private FB group is already set up and probably has many users, but isn't there a way those instructional videos can be made available to the rest of us via download through our Vanishing Inc. account or something?
    • 4. John answers: I don't use FB and never will. It's really unfortunate that the groups can't be hosted in a forum on this site. It automatically eliminates a large group of would-be purchasers (myself included) that choose not to patronize FB, fake account or not. I'm disappointed.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yup!
    • 2. Larry answers: Sorry, I don't think you're correct. A banquet group - say 10 to 20 tables - will NOT be able to see this unless you hold your arm very high. And the trick won't allow that.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: With Level one you can ditch the gimmick, so you can use a signed car if you want to. Level One is much more robust so you are very unlikely to break this gimmick. I think Decoy might be a bit more visual but they both look great.

Customer reviews for Level One



Straight up fantastic.
It’s not what you think it will be if you know how most deck vanishes work and it is simple yet devilishly clever I love level one. It great fairly easy to use when you get the nack for it and gets great reactions from my experience.



Definitely the trick of the year! I was surprised at how easy this one. After ten minutes, I had the basics down. After another hour, I was very comfortable with it. Excellent product, gimmick and explanation.



Amazing!! A cleverly crafted gimmick which will last you for ever !!!
The best vanishing deck I have ever seen!!



When i first saw this performed it blew my mind. The gimmick itself if amazing and you can tell alot of work and thought have gone into this product. Its one piece and pretty much unbreakable. The tutorial for this is very in depth and full of information and to top it all off there is a private Facebook group dedicated to this gimmick with a brilliant community already with lots of people sharing tip and help to different performance ideas so you and use this in alot of different applications for example there is a brilliant phone camera trick you can do incorporating this gimmick... Took me roughly an hour or so of practice to get this down to a fair decent standard... Overall 10 out of 10 ????



When I received the gimmick (I don't watch the "how to" until I receive the item), my first reaction was "uhh...no %&#$@ way is this going to work." How wrong I was. NO STRINGS, NO FLAPS, SMALL GIMMICK, NEARLY ANGLE PROOF. This is everything you could want in a deck vanish...aside from making the entire deck vanish. You are left with one card..or two..depending on what you're doing. I pulled this off multiple times with very little practice. I do have smaller hands so I had to really pay attention to some minor buckling. Loosen up the grip, and all is good! EXCELLENT PRODUCT! THANKS!



This is simply SUPERB.!!!
Easy to learn, and the gimmick will last you a lifetime.!!!
10/10 Christian.!!!



Level one is THE best vanishing deck you will get your hands on, I never leave the house without it! There’s a way to bring it into almost any routine!



Level One was one of the most talked about effects at Blackpool, and witnessing Christian demo this at the Vanishing Inc. stand, it was a sight to behold. Undoubtedly a contender for trick of the year, Christian has created a gimmick that ticks all the boxes for a graceful effect. This will be your new EDC. Taking up minimal pocket space, not only does Level One look great on camera for social media, Level One can also be worked seamlessly into an impromptu card effect. The tutorial is an excellent production and Level Ones Facebook group has amassed some great exchanges of ideas, and Christians support is second to none. I look forward in anticipation for Christians continued creations, as Level One is truly next level!



It’s even fun to practice! Not something that you’ll be doing perfectly in 2 minutes. Takes a little time to get it right. The Facebook group is full of helpful tips and routines. I love it.



Level One is exactly what I expected and well made. I viewed this as a purchase of the explanation of moves provided in the tutorial. I have not been a big fan of card magic in the past but I will use this in conjunction with other card tricks to enhance the overall performance. A little practice will be necessary. I would recommend this to other magicians who might use a deck of cards in their performances. There are a number of tricks which could be combined with that would make sense.



Absolutely love this product. Ive managed to get the best reactions ive ever got with just a little pratice.
Definitely a must buy for the price. Guaranteed to wow.



I have been vanishing decks at the bar for a while...but when I saw this I immediately clicked and bought it. I can't wait. After watching the instructional, I can say this is a complete worker in every sense. I foresee this as not only a deck vanish, but a deck switch and transposition in the works ready to come. You are going to have one of those, "why didn't I think of that" moments, but I am happy Christian thought of it and brought it to market. Game changer!



Best gimmick I have ever bought. So fun to play with and way easier than I thought it would be. Looking forward to the Facebook group going live!



Surely an early contender for the release of 2019...When Christian first showed me this, I got hit with that same feeling which got most of us in to magic - utter bewilderment! He then showed me what the gimmick was, performed it again, and that feeling didn’t change. This is instagram magic made for the real world...as well as taking up virtually no pocket space, the gimmick will last you a lifetime! An incredible bit of thinking from one of the nicest men in magic.



This is probably the most complete deck vanish I've seen in a long time. From the gimmick to the tutorial Christian has thought of everything.

The tutorial is taught in a logical manner and answers all the questions you are going to ask just as you think of them.

I would 100% recommend this to any magician out there!



this is genius. The type of thing you can have ready to perform at any time at a moments notice. Truly amazing visually. This is never going to let you down in performance, its very easy to get to grips with. This effect will go with me everywhere from now on.



This effect is something of pure beauty. Taught very well, goes over every detail. The best part about this entire project is the extra routines and thoughts on the Facebook group. This is a must buy for anyone looking for this kind of effect!



This is an amazing gimmick, wasn’t on board with it at first but after a month or so messing around with become more comfortable performing it, it is a powerful piece of magic.



It is what I thought it would be. Happy I did not have to do it myself. No prototyping, just start to play. Also nice video.



A highly visual deck vanish you will love. It is not self working. It may take hours/weeks to be able to get the movement down. I do not see that as a negative. This effect looks great on camera and in person. I highly recommend joining the FB group when you receive it. It has more tips for the effect and a lot of great ideas.



I got this few months ago, till now I never leave home without it, it's the perfect closure and ending trick to my close up act whether it was a street performance or a restaurant gig, leave your audience with a visual impossible effect that they will remember forever.



S, this gimmick is super simple, creative and fun! I truly did not expect the inventiveness of the design and it's simplicity.It can be used for as many things as your imagination can devise. It requires only a minimal amount of practice compared to some gimmicks but packs a great visual punch. i have added it to my Ambitious Card routine and am loving the direction it is taken me. i definitely say that, for the price, this is a winner!



Spent a solid nights practice with this and love it! This effect can fit any magician's character. You'll have to develop you're own routine with it , but that's all part of the fun!!! The deck vanishes in two phases right before their eyes. What else could you ask for in a deck vanish???



This is going straight to my professional repertoire and I am sure will stay there for years to come just like the venom cube and my slot okito box. Truly magical , not overpriced, instructions are clear, gimmick looks like it will last forever, a Facebook page of people that owns it sharing their ideas and routines, couldn’t have ask for more to be honest.
If you are on the fence of buying this and you are an intermediate magician that already knows basic moves of card handling and misdirection you will not be disappointed, this will be the best finale for your ACR.



Best deck vanish ever the solution is great would recommend for anyone



I was extremely lucky to get my hands on this early, and it's was love at first sight.

The effect involves a gimmick and a little slight of hand, which isn't very hard to learn, and was actually really fun to play about with.

What is really great about the gimmick for me is the size. Even with a 2 piece suit I find it hard to find space for a new gimmicks without making room, but if you can fit a pen, you most likely can fit this.

The effect is strong and visual as you can tell from the trailer, but what's important to note is that the angle is indeed forgiving, and not just a camera trick. I perform this to large groups without fear.

The tutorial teaching is clear, and goes through the main vanish, then teaches us how to set up, and to end clean.

I'm hard pressed to think of a negative about this one. You are very likely to flash if you don't practice...but that is most tricks. Apart from that, learning to set up the trick while performing is a little hard, but definitely worth the time



the download video doesnt include live performances, as mentioned in the blog post. no routines/applications were shown, as stated in the blog post. disappointed because of that! otherwise it seems doable and i am looking foreward to see the reactions of the spectators.

hope there will be a different video in the downloadsection, that delivers on the promisses.



Misleading sales copy:
"The best part of "Level One" is that you can learn it within minutes."
I am up to 600 minutes of practice and it still looks awful. Yes - it is seems like a great effect and the gimmick is well made and will last a long time. But do not be mislead. This will take work.
That said - I am really looking forward to mastering this in a few weeks and trying it out.



A great effect, but oversimplified as far as the handling goes. You had better have nimble fingers and a bit of dexterity. Large hands won't hurt either. If you have any issues with arthritis or finger dexterity, don't waste your money. This will need a lot of practice to pull off well or you will surely drop the gimmick and expose the trick. Hoping that I can pull that off before it winds up in the unused gimmick drawer. Solid gimmick that will last a lifetime, but....



I am sorry to have purchased this product. It's not worth much, and if it had been my first purchase from this fine store, I'd have questioned their integrity.



This gimmick is really good and the vanish is very visual however you can not perform it surrounded even though the ad copy says you can and the teaching is absolute crap. It was really confusing and christian did not even say a word.
