Customer reviews for Deceptive Arts Playing Cards

Richard Pot

The Deceptive Arts deck from magician Josh Brett has been printed by Cartamundi with their popular True Linen B9 Finish, which is thicker and yet softer than a regular Bicycle style deck. Deceptive Arts is Josh Brett's brand, and he's incorporated into this deck's design numerous things that are important to him, including various mystical symbols.

The tuck box features a low-key and understated look, with a very practical light yellow background, with green and black printing that includes the name of the deck. A central feature on the tuck box and the symmetrical card backs is a triangle shape that integrates and pays homage to many classic symbols, including the all-seeing eye and the symbol for infinity. Of special interest is how the white border is broken up by a horizontal green line at the top left and bottom right, which helps produce some interesting spreads and fans.

It will come as no surprise to discover a customized Ace of Spades, with the deck's signature green again being a key element, to match the card backs. The two Jokers are also customized, one in black and the other in green. The face cards are largely standard, but there is one notable exception: the Jack of Spades, which features the creator Josh himself! This also has a handy Ace of Spades reveal that magicians will appreciate. As an added bonus, you also get a duplicate of this card, plus a blank card - two gaffs that magicians will welcome and be able to put to good use.

Overall this is a practical and stylish deck that will especially appeal to those with a fondness for card magic.
