PRISM - magic

This is, quite simply, the finest color-changing deck package ever offered.

You receive the PRISM deck (designed by Andi Gladwin); a pack of cards in which every card has different artwork, and a DVD featuring Joshua Jay's PRISM routine.

You can perform a complete act with this deck...culminating in the color-change finale. The EXQUISITE artwork and careful detail on every card in this deck makes this the finest rainbow deck ever produced. If you do color-changing deck or have ever wanted to, The PRISM Deck should be in your collection.

The most interesting part: the backs are marked! This sounds silly for a rainbow deck, but everybody who knows Joshua will think twice. Pure genius!

"A versatile concept and a professionally produced tool" Pit Hartling
"Stunning, practical, logical and astonishing!" Wayne Houchin
"Joshua Jay's Prism has plenty of ideas you will like and use." Roberto Giobbi

The Prism Deck is a deck you can use with ANY color-changing deck routine. To perform the core routine Joshua explains, you need only four-of-a-kind and four Jokers from the deck design you like to use. So, if you like blue bikes, supply those cards in blue bikes. The Aces in Phoenix cards (like the ones Joshua uses in the trailer) are bigger than normal Aces, so if you like those Aces, consider purchasing some Phoenix cards in red or blue. Otherwise, simply use Kings and use your favorite deck (of the 22 effects described, three small ideas require a Phoenix deck, but all the rest can be done from ANY deck you choose).

Ben "Super Stud"

If this was 'just' a color changing deck routine it would still be a great value. But it isn't just a color changing deck routine. It's a complete act. Cards transpose, thoughts are read, aces are produced and finally, after 8 minutes of incredibly commercial card magic, the deck, impossibly, changes. It's a stunning ending to a set that NO ONE would see coming. You get a beautifully produced deck and tons of great ideas to help you put together the perfect material for your act. Finally I can get rid of my mutilated parasols closer and do something that people will actually love. Thanks Josh!

This is a fantastic product at a great price. The deck itself is quite attractive, the instruction on the DVD is top-notch, and the featured routines are very strong. All but one of the routines in the main set can be done in the spectator's hands in a walk-around setting without a table. The whole set is modular so you can mix and match, add and subtract to it (and in particular the routine which requires a table can be left out -- though it's a terrific effect). The whole set ends with a color-changing deck finale with an additional kicker that happens in the spectator's hands -- all without a deck switch of any kind. To me what really distinguishes this product, though, are all the extra ideas, alternate handlings, bonus routines, and bonus props which are included. Some of these are really good! This is a great product which beginners and working professionals alike can get a lot out of.



I absolutely love this routine! The deck is well made and Josh's routine is just the type of magic I love VERY well thought out. Audiences love it, and it's even fun to practice. For many years, my closer during walk-around has always been signed card to impossible location; be it wallet, box, shoe...whatever. I searched for other card closers, but to me nothing was nearly as close. Now, I can walk into a gig with 2 completely different top shelf closers. AND, with this one, no losing cards by the end of the night! I love all the little extras hidden in certain cards as well, like the 52 on one gag and the coupon card.

Brilliant work Josh, Andi and Christian!

KUDOS! Clearly a serious amount of hard work has gone into this project, it's just magnificent. I wish all producers put as much effort into their creations. Definitely great value for money, it's a steal!



This still continues to be one of my greatest buys of all time, thank you Vanishing INC. so so much



I could go on and on about this product, but I'll keep it short and sweet. The DVD is well produced, chocked full of ideas and squeezes every bit of entertainment possible out of the Color Changing Deck routine. It is easy to follow and is a springboard to the things that are possible with this deck. The PRISM deck itself is well made, has more bell and whistles than a Rolls Royce and is truly a work of art and makes all of the things you always wanted to incorporate into the routine possible. Add on top of that all the extra bits and routines you get with cards separated from the deck and incorporated elsewhere and you have quite possibly one the best deals around! Highly recommended!!!



This is the definitive colour changing deck package. The deck looks amazing, and the DVD covers loads of routines, and even ideas for the individual cards! A really great product, well done guys!


Jay Mar

It's one of my favorite effects. It's most of my spectators' favorite too! Can't give justice to its power just by commenting on it. Thanks Joshua Jay!



It is unbelievable how much thought went into this deck! Every single card has so much cool stuff built in it will blow your mind! And like mentioned above this isnt a CC Deck trick, its a entire 7-10 minute (customizable) routine that culminates in not only the deck changing into this super visual beautiful rainbow deck, but also Aces in the SPECTATORS HANDS CHANGE! Do no underestimate the effect this routine has on laymen, What a beautiful product and very reasonably priced!



Worth every penny.



Joshua Jay lectured at our SAM#4 meeting in Philadelphia last week. I highly recommend attending one of his lectures. Joshua performed quite a few affects including the Prism deck! I purchased it and am surprised by the number of affects available from this single purchase. I am going to learn the Ace routine first, and look forward to performing it soon.



Absolutely love the prism deck! So much thought and effort has gone into the creation of the deck plus the amazing routines explained on the dvd!! Then all those added bonuses! I think this deck is limited only by your imagination! Top stuff guys!! ????



This will get your creative juices flowing, and I have invented a few effects based on some of the cards in this deck. The cards themselves are very high quality. Everything, the different effects are all high quality. Be warned however- this will take some practice. There is only one moderately difficult sleight that can be accomplished with just a few hours of practice. I'm not going to get into huge detail about the methodology here, but it is very manageable.
The video teaches many effects, and the core routine (Jay's ace location and color-changing deck finish) is taught in great detail.
What surprised me the most about this product was how high quality the DVD, the cards, and everything was for just $30.
So, do I recommend it? Absolutely. Everything about this deck and the DVD blew me away. You may have to purchase an item to be able to do the "Ror-shock" effect but it is very cheap. I cannot stress this enough. If you want something you can perform right away, don't get this. If you want something that will get you insane reactions, get the PRISM deck now. (Oh, and if you don't already have one, a red Phoenix deck is pretty much mandatory for the full effect.



Enough has already been written about how great this deck is, and I agree completely. I thought I'd mention the nice clear plastic case it comes in. I'd buy a few if they were available separately. They'd be great for extra protection of my collector's deck, or for certain mentalism routines,or imagine Josh's 'Phantom Deck' where not only the cards turning blank, but the case as well.



Use this all the time what a fantastic effect.



I mean... what can you say about this that isn't good? Absolutely nothing!!!

Josh has put so much time and effort into the Prism Deck - from the design of the deck and each individual card, to the routine, to extra tricks that are built in, and the professional and educational instructional DVD.

There's not much else to say about this effect than that you should already have it in your repertoire, and if not... what are you waiting for?!

This is worth every penny! Indeed it is pure genius. PRISM is everything promised. You can perform a routine, and the color change is merely icing on the cake! While you will want to have some basics down, like a double lift, although this is definitely at least an intermediate effect, you can learn all you need from the 45 min (or so) DVD. The artwork is great, and indeed there is careful attention to detail, and many more things built into the deck that are very very useful and will have your imagination going wild on new possibilities. This really is a must-have deck. This exceed my expectations, and was a real value and much more than I thought!



This trick is super amazing, it is one of the best color changing decks ever! The coolest part is that you do not need to do a deck swich. The trick is fairly easy and works very well. The cards are printed on Phoenix card stock so they will last you a long time. All you need to preform this trick is the prism deck and a red backed phenolic deck. The instructions are very good quality and they teach you everything you need to know. If your a fan of color changing decks, this is the trick for you.



It is fairly easy to learn and with Joshua going into so much detail I was able to perform it within half of an hour.



What a stunning tool. Joshua not only developed an amazing product, but also he gives you a wonderful completed performance to do with it.



Brilliant. Best color changing deck out there. So many ideas!!



PRISM deck is awesome! I love to practice it and will hopefully perform it soon.
One thing is that, for the color changing deck routine, one should have included a Phoenix ace card, as it is not possible to perform without.



The construction of the deck is really well thought out and executed, enabling both a really strong rainbow deck as well as a series of other tricks with gaffed cards and stacks.

Even stronger is the overall routine that Joshua uses to demonstrate a lot of magic very cleanly with a gaffed deck. The routine he teaches is very approachable, with options to use simpler sleights depending on skill level. In addition, you could add in several other tricks (Twisting the Aces, etc.) if you want to lengthen the set.

Strongly recommended.



When I first saw this on Chris Ramsay's YouTube channel I was floored and immediately shot over to VanishingInc to purchase this. It did not disappoint let me tell you! This is a brilliant effect! Please restock the refill decks so I can get another one!



The amount of value that comes with this one deck is ridiculous. You get a full blown commercial routine, not just a single colour changing deck trick. Hit after hit of strong magic.



I am absolutely in awe of how much the value of this product far exceeds the price. This deck is able to adapt to the performers style because it is so versatile. Thank you for all the attention to detail and care that was put into this project!





This I truly love. Such a great deck so many possibilities. The routines that Joshua preforms and teaches are great. As always. I have been after a good rainbow deck for some time now but have always been dissatisfied with other products. This however hits the nail right on the head. ??



Josh has come out with a very clever deck in prism you have got a complete act here with the routines taught and this is your perfect closer routine because all routines are very strong and the audience will not see the end coming and the fact it comes at a great price its well worth the money recommended.



All of the praise you've heard of PRISM by Joshua Jay exists for a reason, this trick is really out of this world. This is most certainly the best color-changing deck effect ever created. The DVD and download instructions provided after purchasing this effect are also unmatched by any other product of this kind. Joshua tells you everything you need to know about performing the trick while giving you tips and advice on presentation. Included with the deck are a few extra cards that you can use to perform with the color-changing deck, or by themselves. You will not be disappointed after purchasing this, the PRISM deck is a reputation maker that you will be performing for a long time.



These are great routines, that are well thought out! There are a lot of options here. The cards clearly work for a color changing deck/rainbow deck routine, but many cards are multipurpose and double as a gaff or revelation!

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: PRISM Plus is not available online at this time, I'm afraid.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The deck doesn't get used up, as such. The refill is for those customers who want to replace their deck (such as after many uses).
    • 2. Howard answers: Yes. The refill is just for people who are performing this many times a week and the cards get bent/dirty/lost and need to be replaced.
  • Jordan asks: Can I use aces from another deck, like bikes, for the full effect? Does the trick require Phoenix aces?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The Aces need to be from a Phoenix deck. But if you wanted to use Bicycle cards, you could use Kings.
  • Edmund asks: Are these actually 52 cards with 52 different backs. I am asking as i have a specific use in mind beyond the routines provided.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes - 52 different back designs.
  • Antonio asks: can you only play the tutorial of the routine/tricks with a DVD player?? (so if you don't have the DVD player, you can't learn the routine?)

  • Byron asks: Does the video show how to switch out the deck? How long to reset? Regards, Byron

    • 1. Sam answers: Nope! the instruction video does not teach you how to switch to PRISM deck, Josh just starts with the PRISM deck. But you can use any deck switch you wish. The reset is very quick just take around 10 seconds I think
    • 2. Todd answers: The main effect does not involve a "traditional" switch.
