"Everything about this deck felt perfect! The fans, the springs, the coating and over all feel. The red pip addition was unbelievable to see in person. With pictures you can never tell what you will really get, but the red on these cards jumps right out and slaps you in the face! I've been waiting a very long time to see a deck this beautiful be created for real performers!"

"The new Black Bicycles from Ellusionist.com are the ultimate in impact and beauty. The design boldly screams "Artist at Work!" ... I have used the black cards at two gigs so far and the reaction was overwhelming."
- Jerry Cestkowski,
Author of Encyclopedia of Card Flourishes
"... the ULTIMATE deck of cards.... Everything about this deck screams MAGIC. From the bad boy tiger which is seen crawling on the outside of the box, to the cards themselves, we're talking quality in workmanship and artistic flare. They handle like a dream."
- Steve Brooks,
Owner of the Magic Cafe.
Two Kinds of Tigers...
2. Black/red for the hearts and diamonds
Have you ever seen a new deck from Bicycle? How about a snarling Tiger on the front, let alone black, let alone a reverse image of every card in the deck? In street testing, magicians and flourishers got twice the reaction on their normal routines because of the eerie impact the deck has on spectators.
The deck is super-hot and has been long awaited from all corners of the world. It allows a great range of card effects and almost voodoo-like transformations from an average red or blue backed deck of Bicycles. Watch the preview clips above and you'll see what we mean.
Voodoo, witchcraft, burned and blackened cards... these themes come alive and become reality with true reverse image cards. The visual behavior of the cards is startling.
• Own the cards just to use an exclusive and beautiful deck that no one has.
• Card magic routines take on stunning visual behavior.
• Flourish artists will perform exceptionally with the cards - see De'vo.
• Use the cards as your regular, everyday performing deck.
• Devise incredible color changes and back changes never before possible.
• Get the decks as an investment... first and second edition Tiger Decks will be worth a LOT... they are currently selling on eBay for $25, $30 and up.
"The Tiger Deck seems to double the reactions for me and I think that others will just want to know where I got the cards. Ellusionist gets another gold star! Great job!"

Black Deck User Reviews
At first glance, the cards just look downright freaky. All jet black with just a little bit of pure white showing on the cards. I've never seen the Queen of Hearts look so possessed and freaky!! I fanned them out, and to my surprise, they fanned just as good as a new Bicycle Deck. I had read from a previous post that the cards were sticky, but these were the air cushion finish I was used to! I performed a double lift, and it was flawless. A riffle pass, BAM, it was perfect! I was just getting started.
I performed a shapeshifter and in broad daylight, it looked like an instantaneous switch. Very good looking. The face-up riffle pass is just beautiful as the face up card travels from the middle of the deck to the top. It's an eerie looking effect since there is not a whole lot of change in the color like there is with a blue or red deck. Then, I decided to close myself in my room, shut the blinds, light some candles for some dim light and that's when I realized the true power of the black deck.
Guys, this deck is not just for your everyday routines. The blue and red decks, I believe, should still be used in many routines and tricks. If you're going to throw comedy in with your routine, I feel you should stick with the red and blue decks. These cards will absolutely freak people out in a dim lit setting. It depicts a horror story setting, and if you guys have any routines and patter that have to do with flames, burnt images, the dead...my GOD these things are going to be great. I'm working on a Black Deck routine, as I'm sure many of you are, and hope to soon post it on the forums.
Sorry to ramble on so much, but these decks are a threat to be reckoned with! A card manipulator's dream, and a scary feel to them to boot! Get them now while you can! You never know when they will cease to exist...

Oh, man, these are some beautiful things. Brad was right; it's a bit freaky at first handling some frickin' BLACK cards. But I went out on the street this morning - and, it's certainly been said that standing around just doing flourishes will definitely attract attention - but you have no idea what kind of attention you can attract doing so, until you've stood around flourishing with a deck of Black Tigers. Once someone walking by does that ever-so-imminent double take at the cards in your hand, a simple "Wanna see some magic?" is all it takes to reel in that catch. Awesome. Just awesome.
As you can tell, I have nothing but praise for these cards - sure, you can say that they're just a "novelty item", or "They're just negative image cards, big deal!" - but come on, NOBODY's seen these before. If you're one of those that's JUST shy enough to NOT walk up to someone and ask them to see some magic, let these cards do the talking for you. They're honestly THAT much of an attention getter. In retrospect, I'm just sad I only had enough money for now to purchase 3 packs. I'll definitely be investing in more of these puppies.
