First off, the Arcane packs use performance coating. The stock feels a lot like Shadow Masters, the finish is superior to Air Cushion by a long margin. They flex perfectly, they can carry torque really well for changes and can be crimped and fixed with ease. They resist warping really well, and can take a lot of abuse.
The look is striking, they engage the eye while leaving the index very easy to read for peeks and spectator recognition. Overall this is the best white deck for performance handling, countless reviews attest to it, and my own experience (extensive cost finding the 'right cards for me'.)
*Ammended after months* They last literally months, the black deck is also ideal for IT work. These are now the only cards I buy/own, the stock is Bee Casino it turns out, the best in the industry for magic. With daily use (1hr or more) a single pack can last me well over two months, and they're still good for duplicates after that. It really is a hell of a lot longer than any other cards I've tried. I can't recommend these enough for magic use, and even practice.
This deck of cards is absolutely stunning, yes it is really expensive for a deck of cards, but it is worth it! They handle really nicely, they fan and spread effortlessly. But the best feature of this deck is the artwork. The box itself is lovely, the jokers are awesome with a nice reveal, the ace of spades is awesome and the court cards are brilliant, this deck is a work of art.
The deck also comes with a double backer for those interested.
i recommend getting in black as well as they look even better but the edges will wear on the black cards so the white are more reliable but the black cards look better so get both like me they fell great and glide around on each other and fan great
Great quality. being light in colour makes it perfect for altering for magic tricks where you have to draw or print something on it. The vender who sold mien was amazing too. Super fast delivery and a great price
Beautiful cards, but not too weird or artistic, so you can actually play Canasta with your parents. I originally wanted to buy something more ornamental, but they'd have trouble reading the cards. The cards were very slippery in the beginning, but after a while, they gained that "used cards" feel and were much easier to handle.
Beautiful deck of cards. I wouldnt necessarily put it in my top 3 but its definitely in the top 10. Handle great Fan easy and looks great Spring is good Nice stock Typically as you would expect from an ellusionist deck.
