Steven Steele Mona Lisa's Secret
Christian, it was great meeting you at the World Magic
Seminar. I got home and the first routine I opened was
Mona Lisa's Secret. It's now in my close-up act and I have
to say, it has gotten the best reaction of any routine
I've placed in my act in years. To say it kills would be a
tremendous understatement. Thank you so much! A great
Sometimes Small Changes can make a Huge Difference!
In 2009 we started a Revolution, as the Phoenix Decks were launched, specially made for Magicians!
For years we worked on improving the Quality of playing cards, and if you ever have used a Phoenix Deck you know that you are handling a deck made in Casino Quality. Some already call the Phoenix Quality the new standard for playing cards made for magicians.
While others design fancy collectors' decks, we care about decks for workers. The faces of playing cards have not changed for more than 100 years, being perfectly suited for Poker and other card games.
We as magicians sometimes struggle performing with these cards for a larger audience, due to visibility. Our options were giant oversize decks that just look like a magic prop, or we tried to use the Jumbo Index Decks, that were created for Casinos. However, both are not really a good solution.
Our Parlour Decks changed the card visibility for Parlour situations, but what if you like to stay with the size of Poker cards that you are used to?
So in 2017, we started an Evolution, by changing the faces of Poker playing cards to make them more visible. Watch the demo video to see the result. As the decks are as affordable as our regular Phoenix Decks there is no reason not giving these decks a try.
We already started to update existing effects, but also will select new releases, that make more sense being released in Large Index version.
Printed at US Playing Cards on Bicycle cardstock, in our well-known Casino Quality, punched through the backs for easy shuffles, faros and better handling.
With our new price model you safe when ordering larger quantities of Phoenix Decks.
