Click to enlarge The Svengali has a devious secret: it looks like an ordinary deck of cards.
But that is a clever illusion. This incredible deck empowers new magicians to perform mindboggling card magic without years of practice. It is the perfect first trick for beginners of all ages!
With a Svengali Deck, the magician can force the spectator to choose a specific card, and then position that card anywhere in the deck they want. Total control! In fact, the magician can make it appear as if EVERY CARD IN THE DECK is the chosen card!
The Svengali Deck is versatile and easy to do. You can make up new tricks on the fly. Beginners love the zero sleight of hand and amazing visual displays, while professional magicians appreciate The Svengali's reliability as a Force Deck.
Anyone who can hold a deck of cards can perform The Svengali Deck. This deck is made on genuine quality Bicycle stock. If it looks like real magic, it must be Svengali!

Easy trick! But this deck has NO rough surface, so it’s not as good as others. FROM THE MAGIC DEPOT! George, you are thinking of the Mirage Deck, which is both a Svengali and Rough and Smooth. Both are versatile decks, but with different purposes. Thank You! Mirage Deck: http://themagicdepot.com/4081 – George Reader
A great trick that will get most any lay person. Just don't do it twice! Cards are well made and the instructions and clear. My only problem was that I had asked for a red deck (it even says so in the invoice), but my deck was blue and the lid of the box has a slight rip. But everything was still usable and I had an old Bicycle box lying around so it's no sweat. – Sang Nguyen
Svengali deck (Bicycle) is perfect for me. I use exclusively red/blue backed Bicycle cards in all my performances so it is a no-brainer to use bicycle back svengali decks to avoid any red flags.
I find that double lifts are much easier with this deck than with other svengali decks, but maybe its just I've gotten a little better.
All in all a good quality svengali deck tha I would reccomend to anyone. – Kevin Rice
This is a quality deck and there's no easier way on the planet to force a card. Of course you can only use it once with any audience, but so what? At this price, buy a couple of decks and indicate a different force card for each. The possibilities are endless. – Doc Wilder
Great card deck, nice to work with. Not unlike many other decks that become crumpled after a short while or make a sloppy performance otherwise. Highly recommended with regard to the relation between price and quality. Great buy.

GREAT DECK! If you want to force a card and have no doubt that they'll pick the card you want them to, get this deck. There are soo many things you can do with this deck. The possibilities are endless! Only thing is you can only use this deck once per audience. If not they'll think something is up when they get the same card over and over. – Joe Cerra
No doubt, The Svengali Deck is a great idea. The only disadvantages being that you cannot show the card front sides in addition to the fact that you of course cannot hand ithe deck out for inspection.
There is a commrcial version of the Svengali Deck called the ****** Deck that uses the roughing principle.
I prefer that one because at least you can show the front side of the cards though again of course you cannot give the deck out for inspection.
I would advise anyone who bought a Svengali Deck to buy a can of roughening spray. I also use several decks because spectators might otherwise wonder that you always force the same card.

A very good forcing tool, when a sleight of hand force is not desirable. – Wilhelm Eberhard
