Card-Shark meets Ted Lesley. This is a dream come true for all magicians who love to use a marked deck. The markings are based on the ideas of Ted Lesley, are extremely visual compared to all other marked decks on the market as they perfectly blend into the design of the Phoenix backs.
So far every magician who saw the Marked Phoenix Deck the first time and searched for the markings, had to smile after a while when he found it. You will smile also, promised!
All markings are situated at the same spot right in the corner, so even the slightest opened fan will allow you to read the marking. If the back design gets into view, you will be able to spot the value. Can't get easier!
Available with red Phoenix back cards, comes in regular card case with black seal.

Ask a question
Cowen asks: Sorry, but what exactly IS a marked deck? From what I can gather I believe each card has a marking so you can tell which card it is?
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Exactly that. It is secretly marked on the back so you can tell the value of the card.
Charlie asks: does it pass the riffle test?
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: In our experience, it does.
Steve asks: Does it come in a box that says, "Marked Deck," in big letters, like the picture?
Post an answer to this question
- 1. Richard answers: I believe that is a wrapper that can be removed.
Harry asks: Does every card in the deck need to be facing the 'correct' way for the marking to be seen, or is the marking in both the upper left AND the lower right corner, allowing for the cards to be turned around or given a table wash and still have the mark be visible?

Customer reviews for Phoenix Marked Playing Cards
These are as innocent-looking as any deck, and are easier to read than most. I loved my original Lesley marked deck, but I had to do all the work myself. Further, the location of the markings on the Phoenix deck is ideal, and, while easier to read, much more disguised than the Lesley deck. Remember, I loved my Lesley deck!!!! But these Phoenix readers are light years ahead!!!!!!!!??
I'm a sucker for a well marked deck and collected quite a few - PHOENIX MD are light years ahead of the rest and quickly became my 'go to' deck! The 'one way' face markings are superb SO subtle - back marking is totally inspired!!
One deck in each colour and the tricks JUST KEEP COMING (Honestly, endless possibilities!) made ME look like a card god! The cards are also Grade 1 quality and handle beautifully straight out of the box - NONE BETTER!
A great reader back marked deck, very clever design, as although the mark is very well hidden within the design, it fits in nice, and once you no were to look its easy to read the mark, and the mark is were your eyes will naturally look, so no facial expressions give aways, and the mark is on the top left on the back design, so great for doing a reverse fan, also a great deck for doing farro shuffles.
