Have you ever tried to memorize a deck of cards? It is really worth the effort, because it allows incredibly strong effects. But it is hard to remember if you are not using the stack frequently. What if the deck does all the work for you?

The new Phoenix SUM Deck 2.0!

S.U.M. has nothing to do with math, the initials stand for Set Up Marked. It is the stacked, marked deck that needs no calculation or memorization whatsoever -- the deck does all the work! You don't have to decipher esoteric markings or remember formulae, everything is literally spelled out for you.

The second generation of the SUM Deck is based on the Roy Johnson's SUM Deck that we released in cooperation with Martin Lewis in 2009. This new deck uses our popular Phoenix marking and also gives info about the card above, the number of cut-off cards, the stack number in the Tamariz Mnemonica system and includes some other features.

It has never been easier to use the Tamariz stack without knowing it thoroughly, and to perform amazing effects while getting used to the Memorized Stack (if you like).

  • The deck appears to be in completely random order.
  • There is absolutely no calculation or memorization required.
  • Can also be used as a normal marked deck.
Comes with strong routines by Luke Jermay, Martin Lewis, Wayne Dobson and others.

Matthew B

This is a fantastic way to learn Mnemonica! Is $30 a lot for a deck? Yes. Is it worth it for this one! YES!



Great sum deck, this comes with two marking systems, the secondary system is very clever, this would not be noticed by the spectator how its done.
It comes with easy to follow instructions, including quite a few tricks explained too.

I absolutely love this deck, the things you can do with it are awesome. And I haven’t yet memorized the Mnemonica stack so this a huge help. You can do awesome tricks right out of the box. The only negative thing about it is the 30 dollar price tag. I mean for what you get it’s great but I wish I could buy a couple of decks without spending that much. That’s only cause I’m already using this one so much I’ll need some more!



This is a great deck. First of all, it comes out of the box already in Mnemonica order so you can use the stack without really knowing it cold for some effects. Secondly, as soon as a card is cut to, you can immediately access the cut to card, the next card, how many cards were just cut off and how many of those cards are black cards (Clubs / Spades).

Yes it is pricey, just like any gaffed deck out there but look at what all is going on here for the price, also, the included effects are good too. Buy one to try out then decide if you want a few more for those “special occasions “

Hint: it is also good to help you learn Mnemonica cold if you want to use them as “flash cards” or just as a safety cushion as you progress.



Great deck and effect. I always love the Phoenix deck for my card work.
