These cards are so amazing. You will not regret getting your hands on these.
GreekMagic • Greece • 04/12/13
I love this deck. Good thing I was able to get two before they sold out.
Teja Yendapally • New Jersey • 04/07/13
I wish I could get my hands one one more of them. These are by far the greatest cards I've ever touched. For this price they are a steal. Too bad they are gone. Please print more of them.
Joseph Brimicombe • England • 03/27/13
I love these cards, I own several decks and treasure them. The markings are genius!
Timothy • Singapore • 03/25/13
They're so good, I don't even dare to shuffle them.
Nicholas • Canada • 03/20/13
I love Daniel Madison as an artist so I want one of these decks so bad. Please print more!
Oliver • Indonesia • 03/11/13
The design is very cool. An awesome marked deck.
Shawnnlai • Singapore • 03/11/13
Please make more!!
Hank • Australia • 02/27/13
Too bad it's sold out, but I got it off ebay. So SIMPLE yet so AMAZING. Produce more please - would definitely get this.
Hunter • New York • 02/26/13
This is one of my favortie decks of cards. The box looks awesome and it's very minimalistic. The textured paper is also really cool. The cards are very elegant with the faded borders.
Fred • South Australia • 02/02/13
Gianluca • Austrlia • 01/15/13
Lack of ink makes this deck fan beautifully. Best deck on the market! The code is something out of this world.
James • United Kingdom • 01/02/13
This deck handles like a dream. The back design stands out so well. Really nice for everything.
Big fan of Daniel Madison. Great magician!
Liam • England • 01/01/13
The design is simple but elegant, the ace and jokers are beautiful and the marking system is so creative, love it!
James • GA • 12/28/12
I've always been a huge Daniel Madison fan so when I heard this deck was being produced I was instantly excited. This is a great deck with a genius marking system. It also handles superbly so it doubles as a great deck for cardistry. Magicians and cardists alike, there's something for everyone.
Reza Mikhaeil • Tacoma WA • 12/21/12
Love these cards. Bought 5 decks - wish I would have bought a few bricks.
Dave • USA • 12/14/12
The deck is so amazing. I've been using it for over a month and they still fan very well. Other people mentioned that the texture feels awesome and I totally agree. Of course the code makes this deck all the more powerful.
Zack • USA • 12/12/12
I love this deck! The main reason I'm writing this is because of the marking system. Even knowing how it works, it is damn near impossible to detect - amazing job!
David • Maryland, U.S.A. • 12/11/12
I am SO happy that I was able to pick up one of these decks. The players are indeed an amazing deck. The box is sweet, the handling is superb, and the design is really eye-catching - even if it is a bit simplistic. I also like it because my last name starts with an M, so this is now my official deck.
Dale Wesley • Bear, De • 12/06/12
I consider myself among the privileged few to have picked up two decks of these cards before they were gone. The texture is out-of-this-world and certainly like none other. The code is definitely something to behold as it's so subtle that even I didn't notice it at first. Fantastic!
Skipper • USA • 12/02/12
The players doesn't look elegant. They look cool. The faces are strange, and the back design looks weird, almost cheap. But the feeling, wow, it was amazing! I'm glad that I got one deck!
Austin • Michigan • 12/02/12
I love this deck. I don't usually write deck reviews because most decks are just average. This deck exceeds everything I expected. The box is BEAUTIFUL. The back design is a bit lacking, but they make up for that 20,000x in performance. I have never handled a deck like this before. Daniel Madison, I salute you.
RJ • Iowa • 12/01/12
Wow, these cards are beautiful. To be honest, I bought these solely for the box but I was impressed by the handling and feel of this beautiful deck of cards. Even if you don't like marked cards, I would still recommend these, there is no way anyone would know a thing, and you can just use them like normal cards. I am glad I got a chance to grab these before they were sold out, and I hope they make another version I can fall in love with.
Saad Khan • Athens, GA • 11/29/12
I'm well aware that this might come across as an exaggeration, but after about a month of using these cards I have to say that they are hands down the best deck of cards I have ever handled.
Even after constant use they still cut and spread exceptionally. I don't think I've ever used a deck of cards this smooth. And to top it all off, they're absolutely beautiful to look at.
If they ever go back on sale, do yourself a favor and grab a few decks. You won't regret it.
Siddharth • India • 11/27/12
I got one word for Daniel Madison: EPIC!
Ollie • London • 11/24/12
I tip my hat to you Daniel Madison. Make more. Now.
Nadia • Denmark • 11/23/12
I think this is the most beautiful deck of cards in my collection. I love the design, and the fact that they are marked makes them just perfect for magic. It's so hard to see the markings if you don't know what to look for.
Simon • Sheffield, UK • 11/19/12
A truly beautiful deck of cards. So glad I got 'em before they sold out! Amazing job DM!
Wen Loong • Malaysia • 11/19/12
Beautiful Playing Cards. Love the Marking System.
Daniel • Sweden • 11/19/12
Great deck. I'm lucky I got one before they sold out. The markings are very hard to see. The spectator will not find it.
Joshua • CT • 11/19/12
I picked up 5 and a half bricks of these at Tannens, and they are so smooth and awesome. An elegant back design, and these cards are soon to be rare in no time :)
Metis • Portugal • 11/15/12
An awesome looking deck with an amazing tuck box. I love the detail in the Queen of Diamonds, King of Diamonds and in the Jack of Clubs. It is perfect to perform magic, handles great. In my opinion, being a limited edition deck, makes it even more precious.
groovesoul666 • Singapore • 11/13/12
Great cards. It's a shame that it's limited as I would like to get some more to make it my regular deck.
Alex • US • 11/11/12
I'm stunned. The simplicity being such a descrete way of marking cards has blown me away. The cards handle soooooooo well, and look absolutely incredible. Good thing I bought some before they were all gone:)
Amazing Daniel, simply amazing.
Amini • Bahrain • 11/07/12
They feel amazing. The box's color and feel are just UNIQUE. I bought a dozen and I believe I'm going to keep this treasure locked away for long.
Cristian • Sweden • 11/06/12
Great deck of cards and a very good secret marking, many people have taken a look at the back thinking it's a marked deck and nobody saw it!!
Vladimir • Montreal • 11/04/12
Im so lucky to have this cards! They have good handling, not as good as other cards, but they're good. The marking system is so clever. I even won some money playing poker with them! The thing is, if you have these cards, well, they're gonna be a special part of your life. You can adapt them in your routines. Nice job Daniel.
Criss • RO • 11/04/12
Madison is THE player!
Andy Melgar • Lima, Peru • 11/04/12
Received these amazing cards today and the feeling is brilliant! Thank you for producing such a great piece of art. So mind blowing!
Kane • UK • 11/02/12
The cards are AMAZING! Good job.
Richard Sampson • Afghanistan • 11/02/12
Gorgeous looking cards with a great box that oozes style. The coding system seems a little blurred even when the cards are close to your face. With practice, I'm sure the pattern recognition will help with the poor visibility. Otherwise full marks.
Magiclolo • El Paso, TX • 11/01/12
I received the deck today, and yes, it's a good one for the price. The system is okay, BUT in order to read the marks, you have to be an eagle - even with perfect lighting. It is very hard to "break the code" with your eyes.
Jokers are not marked and the box does not match the color of the cards. The box is not totally white, yet the cards are. Buy one if you have a perfect sight.
Henri • Finland • 10/31/12
Finally got my dozen of Players. There's only one word for these cards: Perfect.
Phillip • Australia • 10/31/12
HL • Tokyo • 10/31/12
The marking system is well-thought out. The position of the mark is easy to spot in normal manner of spreading cards, but at the same time, the markings are well-masked by the pattern of the back of the deck. This is my most favorite deck right now.
Soroush • USA • 10/30/12
These cards are the best! The marking is nearly impossible to notice yet very easy to identify for the person using them. The quality of the cards are also amazing. They are insanely smooth!
Benoit • France • 10/27/12
Lucky me, I received an autographed deck from d+M before the release. Impossible for me to touch the deck because of the collector item I have in my hands, but now i have two dozen and i'm in love.
Jeff Lianza (Jack of Clubs) and Madison are geniuses! It's now my favorite deck of all time! Never leave home without these playing cards!
Cameron • UK • 10/26/12
I have yet to find a flourish that these cards are bad at. Amazing!
Ross McCormick • Great Britain • 10/26/12
These cards are amazing! The finish is impeccable and they handle like a dream. At first I was slightly put off buy the back design, however the minute they arrived I completely changed this opinion. Even the box's quality is great! Definitely worth getting!
AK • Japan • 10/26/12
The finish of this deck is splendid. The cards, the box, everything is elegant. Of course, the secret mark on the back is cleverly hidden, but easy to distinguish. By the way, the Jack of Clubs looks like daniel+Madison. Is this just my imagination?
Hugo Luccioni • France • 10/26/12
I just got mine and I have to say that this is one of my favorite deck of cards. So elegant and such a clever system. Well done D+M and theory11.
Ethan Wendt • USA • 10/25/12
These are amazing cards. The box is great, beasty quality. It is really smart how the cards are marked! I recommend these before they sell out!
Jordan Anders • Mason, Michigan • 10/25/12
Beautiful deck, excellent finish. Amazing secret. I purchased two and I plan on ordering one more for my collection. If you hadn't picked up any yet, definitely do soon because they will sell out.
JC • LA • 10/25/12
Got my decks today and I'm extremely happy. The finish is amazing, I did my first thumb fan showing all 52 cards off the bat. From the pictures I thought the markings would be a lot more noticeable and visible for other to figure it out but its actually not. I don't think anyone can find the markings of the deck even if you told them it was a marked deck. It comes with one double back card which is cool. The only con is that the jokers aren't marked, i usually like to have the jokers in the deck for sandwich routines and it can be very confusing if left in the pack. With that being said the deck is phenomenal, instantly making it my favorite deck as of now.
Brooks • British Columbia, Canada • 10/24/12
Just got mine in the mail today, its an amazing deck! Daniel Madison did not disappoint! The deck is very smooth and easy to handle. The secret markings are a nice added bonus as well. I Strongly recommend getting this deck before it sells out!
Foster • Chicago • 10/23/12
Just got these and I love the way they fan. Very nice look and feel to these cards, think I am going to get a couple of more decks. The box is very elegant looking as well.
Casshan Wallace • USA • 10/22/12
Amazing! I love these cards! I got three decks - two for use and one for collecting. These cards fan nicely, the system is well hidden, and the design is nice! Elegance plays a big part in these cards and I love it! Great cards DM and T11!
Kevin Le • California, USA • 10/21/12
Really nice deck. I was surprised that the box wasn't as white as in the pictures. The deck finish is one of the smoothest I've ever handled.
LUKAZ • Macedonia • 10/20/12
I just got the deck today and it's AWESOME! Perfect deck and people will never know that it's marked. You will be able to tell the chosen card just by looking at it for a second. The quality is very good as are the other decks of t11. One of the best decks ever created. Get them before they're sold out.
RJ H • Bloomfield, Iowa • 10/20/12
This is the most beautiful and perfect box ever. The back design is a bit lack luster and I wish they didn't put it on the box. But they handle well and I enjoy the slightly custom court cards. So all in all, a good buy.
Brandon White • Kingscote, South Australia • 10/19/12
These cards are so simple, and within that simplicity is a trace of magic. I used these cards in a performance and even without utilizing the system, their eyes popped when just finding their selected card. Finally, the reason I bought the Players revealed itself. They cried, they screamed, one girl fainted.
Mike X. • Ottawa • 10/19/12
Simple yet complex. So many uses. One of the best decks created.
trideag • California, USA • 10/19/12
Just got these decks today. As expected, they handle amazingly. Look fantastic. Simple, classy and bold. Not to mention the awesomeness hidden inside. Get yourself a few before they are gone for good. Congrats to T11 and DM for a job well done - again.
Carmelo • Montreal • 10/18/12
A smooth beautiful finish, a little limp handed for the spring, could use a little more of a delicate touch for the faro shuffle - otherwise superb cards with extraordinary quality!!
Noah • Indiana, USA • 10/18/12
These cards are awesome! The finish is great, the look is great, the secret is great, and they are almost the definition of perfection. My two minor complaints are that 1: The box does not exactly match the cards (it is more of a cream color) and 2: The jokers are not marked. In spite of those minor flaws, I would highly suggest this deck.
Hanif • Kuala Lumpur • 10/18/12
Box :: perfect.
Handling :: perfect.
Back Design :: simple and elegant.
Marking :: easy to read if you know the secret and unnoticeable to others.
Jackie Y. • USA • 10/18/12
I love this deck so much! The markings are easy to use and very hidden! Great deck, highly recommended!
Simon • Sheffield, UK • 10/17/12
Awesome deck. I absolutely love the simplicity and elegance.
Eric Stevens • Spokane, WA • 10/17/12
I really love this deck. I just received them in the mail today yet they intrigue me beyond just playing with them. They're so simple in design, yet elegant. The marking system is genius and unlike most marked cards, nowhere near immediately obvious. DM's video on how the deck works is clear and easy to understand. Five stars!
Cheryl • Singapore • 10/17/12
Got half a brick of these. They are elegant and special. For such a good price, the marked deck is worth every cent!
Vick • NY • 10/17/12
I really don't think I'll open these when I get them. They look too nice!
Bryan C. • Sydney • 10/16/12
One word: elegance. This is such an amazing deck for magic, cardistry and gambling demonstrations! The markings alone are so deceptive to the untrained eye.
Wei • NYC • 10/16/12
Just got these in the mail today. These have a very elegant box and back design with a great marking system. This should be my go-to deck for a while.
H&HMagic • Oklahoma • 10/16/12
The secret behind this elegant deck of cards is absolutely brilliant! I ordered 4 decks and cannot wait to get them! I know this is a high quality deck and will be very rare someday so order now!
Tuval • Israel • 10/16/12
The most elegant design ever. Great job!!!
Jay • USA • 10/15/12
The cards look amazing! I can't wait to get my hands on them and practice the "secret".
Brian • Maryland • 10/14/12
The secret to these cards is brilliant.
Vishal Amlani • Mumbai • 10/14/12
Jon Harris H&HMagic • Lawton, OK • 10/14/12
This deck looks amazing. The price is ridiculously cheap for a deck with such an incredible marking system. My already high amount of respect for Daniel Madison just went up tenfold for coming up with something so ingenious.
Harry • GB • 10/13/12
This an extremely good handling deck. This is because of the lack of ink on the back design. My only criticism is the lack of face design. They could have added mysterious faces. Other than that, this deck is a must buy!
John • Australia • 10/13/12
This deck is amazing.
Crow • Spartanburg • 10/13/12
Great deck. One of those thing's designed to be subtle but deadly. A lot like a crossbow, it is accurate and deadly. FIVE STARS!
Brandon O'Hanley • Fort Stewart • 10/13/12
I type this review with a deck in hand and 11 more to my left. They came in the mail today and...WOW! Everything you heard is true, the boogieman is real...and you found him! This deck is amazing and has claimed top spot for my favorite deck. I will be doing a full review on it, but for now...ADD TO CART!!!
MW • USA • 10/12/12
Amazing design, and the secret of the deck is great!! I recommend this deck to anyone and everyone.
Artur • Exeter, UK • 10/12/12
It's amazing how the M looks. I wish I had a painting on my wall of such a design. Also, the outlines on the red cards are very elegant.
Alex Dave • Brazil • 10/12/12
First off, the price is very cheap for a factory-marked deck. I haven't had the cards in my hands (and won't for a while, knowing how long international shipping usually takes), but T11's quality is unmistakable. Only issue that might arise is design and well... this is the most elegant box I've seen, wrapping some very clean and elegant cards. I love white decks, they just fit my persona. Looking at the pictures, I can't find anything that looks marked, so it is pretty deceiving. You receive as a download, the cheat sheet which is self-explanatory. But there is a video explaining it and the logic behind it. It also explains how to get used to maked cards as well and how to behave when using them in case you never have. Only con I see is that you do need to be able to see a fair amount of the back to be able to tell which card you're looking at (It can't be done from a spread, unless it is REALLY wide). Anyway I bought myself some of these. Can't wait for them to arrive!
Craig • Melbourne • 10/12/12
The box looks soo beautiful :O The back design wasn't what I was expecting, but hey, if it helps hide the markings then who am I to complain? I love the idea of a marked deck, but couldn't get my hands on a Phoenix Apocalypse deck, and this will be able to fill that void!
azzkikncardz • Philippines • 10/12/12
I'm a huge fan of Daniel Madison! It's about time he released his own deck of cards! Good job t11 and D+M! Cheers!
Bryan • Irvine • 10/12/12
Awesome deck! I have never seen a better design than this!
Ken • NYC • 10/11/12
Awesome video, awesome deck, awesome man! Buy them now!
Nadia H • Denmark • 10/11/12
They look amazing. I can't wait to get my hands on them!
ThisIsShar • United States • 10/11/12
This is the first deck I've bought that was created by a popular card artist. This deck is a completely accurate representation of Daniel. Simple and deceptive. I cannot wait to wrap my fingers around these cards.
Josh B. • Salt Lake City • 10/10/12
Finally a deck that proves deceptive while false dealing and allows you to reverse a card. On top of that, it is marked. This is the most versatile gambling deck currently on the market.
OM • Jordan • 10/10/12
These cards reflect what Daniel Madison is all about. Perfection and elegant simplicity. Everyone has always been blown away by DM's marking methods, and now it's your chance to impress others. Thank you t11!
Shehan • Sri Lanka • 10/10/12
Another awesome deck. Love the design and everything. Can't wait to touch them... PS: you have mentioned 'White Edition' in the description. Hope that sounds good for my collection. Thanks t11!
Simon • Moscow • 10/10/12
Amazing! But it needs more colors!
Dose • France • 10/10/12
Simple, white, pure, elegant and marked... A must have!
Noah • Indiana, USA • 10/10/12
I haven't actually handled the cards yet, but they look pretty slick. I like the high quality video - hopefully more of theory11's videos in the future will be this high of quality. My on criticism for the cards is that they do not say they have the best finish (Q1?) - I would pay $3 more for a deck with good finish. Overall 4/5
Shehan • Sri Lanka • 10/10/12
Hope this will be an awesome deck. Can't wait to smell one of these. PS: theory11 has mentioned this is 'white edition' I think there might be a reason for that too...
