They are great, the design is fantastic, and the box is so cool. You should get it right now.
Tan Yue Ren • Singapore • 05/19/13
This box and design of the cards are awesome and beautiful! Worth to buy, of course!
David • United Kingdom • 05/18/13
These are a beautiful. Right out of the box they have a special look and the card backs are great. They have really great detail and beautiful artwork.
Anna • United States • 05/10/13
Just got this deck and it feels great.
It's got one of my favorite box designs!
The cards handle well too!
One of the best t11 decks!!!
Luke • Australia • 04/08/13
This deck looks amazing, the detail in this deck is so intricate! They handle as smooth as butter as well! If you buy this deck, you won't be disappointed!
Daniel Lenton • United Kingdom • 04/08/13
My favorite deck by theory11. There I said it. I love these cards. They're amazing, beautiful, and so durable. The only criticism I would have is that the colors are boring.
Gus • Sydney • 04/06/13
I had my doubts at first but when I opened the deck, I was blown away. theory11 has raised the bar to the next level with this deck. The detail in this deck is extremely impressive and the handling is like a dream as well. I recommend this deck to everyone.
Joseph Brimicombe • England • 03/27/13
Words don't do this deck justice!
Nicolas • Belgium • 03/26/13
Just the best there is and believe me, it handles so well. I cant stop playing with them, I just love these decks.
Jay • Ohio • 03/17/13
This deck completes me! I have a gambling person and these cards have that bad-boy feel to them. The box and custom artwork are to die for and the handling is t11 quality that keeps us all coming back for more. These are a must have for any collector or performer looking for a deck with some sweet custom attitude.
Greg • New Hampshire • 03/13/13
I love these cards! I originally got them with a magic bundle I purchased and was amazed at their quality and uniqueness. They work well for magic tricks and I always love using them in my home poker games. Everyone has bicycle cards but I have Rebels! These are now the only cards I use and the best part is the more you buy from theory11, the bigger the discount you get!
Masaki • California • 03/13/13
When I first came across this deck I immediately fell in love. I think they would make a great pair with the Propagandas. Everything about it seems very well thought out. The color scheme of the box and composition of elements on the cards themselves all flow quite nicely and convey a kind of message of righteous rebellion against some common problem. The cards themselves make a statement and I think that's important. If your going to carry a deck of cards these are the showstoppers.
The high quality of theory11 decks, again, never disappoints. I recommended these cards as a bold choice to add to any magician's arsenal of decks and gadgets.
Chuck • USA • 03/11/13
Best deck I've found yet! The feel and spring of the stock and finish is superb! The back and box design are perfect and not too conspicuous that I can't use them in my routines. The Rebels have become my regular deck of choice. Worth every penny!
Mike Jordan • Nevada • 03/10/13
EPIC!! Stunning case and excellent handling. The stock is thin, yet smooth and snappy. Superior quality! Grab a brick or two!
Phill • USA • 02/25/13
These are awesome cards, and they can be marked easily using black magic marker and a system of binary covering the stars!
xDo • Vienna • 02/23/13
This is the only deck, which has got an awesome design on the box and on the cards, metallic ink and a nice stock! It's really really awesome. If you're looking for a deck for cardistry and magic, you've just found it.
Raphael • Germany • 02/15/13
In my opinion this is the best deck ever. I think it's better than S&M by D&D.
Curtis • Maryland • 02/10/13
These are by far the best cards in my arsenal. The handling is amazing and both the cards and the box are works of art. I am definitely buying more of these.
Kyriakos • Greece • 02/09/13
This deck is just perfect! The tuck box has nice silver foil and the tax stamp is amazing, like the old decks. The cards handle pretty well and are also good for magic and cardistry.
Christophe • France • 02/08/13
These cards are amazing. Class in your hands. Great quality! Congratulations on the box; it is lovely!
Nam • USA • 01/25/13
My favorite deck as of this moment. I think they're going to be my favorite for a LONG time.
Josh • United States • 01/18/13
I got a deck of these for Christmas, and I absolutely love them. The box is gorgeous, with beautifully embossed silver foiling used for most of the design. The black outside with the red interior is fantastic as well. The cards are just as nice. The thin borders make the cards look awesome in displays and fans. The stock is kinda thin, but they feel super smooth right out of the box and don't need much breaking in. People have been complaining about the lack of customization with regard to the court cards, but I personally like having the standard court cards. It makes them seem a little less like a trick deck to spectators.
Wyatt • Australia • 01/08/13
For a long time the Sentinels have been my favourite custom deck, but I think they now have a competitor. The Rebels look absolutely great and handle just as well as every other custom t11 deck.
Do • Vienna • 01/06/13
This deck of playing cards has got everything what a deck should have. It's perfect for Cardistry or Magic, has got a great design and awesome handling and feeling. Yes, the stock is REALLY thin, but that's the cool thing. It makes the cards feel better. Definetly worth buying them! It won't disappoint you. This is THE deck.
Cullen T. • USA • 12/26/12
Exceptional cards. I received a deck of these for Christmas and could immediately tell they were going to be one of my favorites. Some people have been complaining that the stock is too thin, but for me, it's perfect. And don't even get me started on the box. My jaw dropped when I saw it. 10/10
James - Joker and the Thief • Australia • 12/16/12
The box is superb and the red interior is just spectacular. Handling wise; they are strange out of the box but turn into flourishing monsters when broken in! Great cards, absolutely worth the purchase.
David • Maryland, U.S.A. • 12/11/12
I love the box. It looks really nice in the collection. The design is really, really good. However, I do not know if this is apparent in any other Rebel decks, but for some reason, I found the stock to be really thin. Like, REALLY thin. It might just thin compared to other T11 decks, but that is what I found in mine, so that is why I gave it 3 stars.
Codi • Hi • 12/10/12
This is my new favorite deck! Definitely pick up a deck if you like softer cards. They are great for springing and fanning.
I would like to note, I've been carrying this deck around my bag and I suppose it got a little beat up. Inside the tuck case is red and it made the edges of my cards red. But they still fan nicely.
John • UK • 11/24/12
This deck handles great and is a good design but it has been really over hyped. I think that the Silver Monarchs and normal Monarchs are better buys for the price tag.
Dale Wesley • Bear, Delaware • 11/23/12
These are the most unique playing cards I have ever used. They even have a unique feel to them. They aren't as slick as the Monarchs, but they aren't as sticky as the charity: water decks either. They are somewhere in between.
I would recommend picking up a brick. Once you hold these cards, you'll never go back to anything else.
SchmidtiZio • Bremen/Germany • 11/17/12
The absolute best cards in the universe! They're soft yet sturdy. I beat those bad guys up like the devil but they're still alive and breathing. They're almost perfectly broken in right out of the box. Perfect finish. Super smooth edges. So they do absolutely everything, cuts, fans, flourishes, shuffles, and magic, everything perfectly! For me as a graffiti artist the design is a dream - the back design, the custom ace of spades and jokers and of course this awesomesauce box! Plus the meaning behind the design. And the name is the cherry on the top - REBELS!!!
Fritz Charleston • Denton, TX • 11/15/12
These cards feel great in the hand. Haven't had them long but they seem like they would have a good half life to them.
The art is awesome, however, the faces of the cards are my favorite part. Just a clean and simple design. I play with a few different decks, depending on my mood, and these always turn heads.
The box is just fantastic. Maybe a little busy looking but over all a very well done design and construction.
I'll be getting more, for sure.
Carmelo • Montreal • 11/14/12
The trailer is simply epic!!! And the feel of these cards is amazing. They handleswell, the box is also amazing with the red interior. This deck is one of my favorites by far! My only complain is that the faces should have been customized a little.
Jack • Indonesia • 11/12/12
It looks great but there are decks that I feel have a better feel to them and handle better.
Fritz Charleston • Denton, TX • 11/12/12
Great fit and finish to these cards. The real selling point, though, is the design. These things are modern looking and classic at the same time and absolutely stunning.
The whole deck just screams clean and calculating. The faces are classic and clean with amazing jokers and the backs are truly an eye pleaser.
The price is fair for this deck and I look forward to getting more. Please don't stop making this deck!
Metis • Portugal • 11/11/12
This is a great deck, one of the best decks ever made by Theory11, Everyone should get it. Handles great, has an amazing design in the box and a great back design.
I love the custom jokers and ace of spades.
Daniel • Sweden • 11/10/12
Rebels are my favorite deck of cards. Why? Because this deck is good for magic and cardistry. Often the deck is just good on one thing. Also the box and the cards looks great!
Liam • UK • 11/10/12
I have had the rebels for some time now and still to this day they are good as new. They are one of the best handling decks I have ever used. The design is great as well and I love the Latin writing 'ET LUX IN TENEBRIS LUCET'. Overall the deck handles and looks well and that is why I would recommend it to any magician or cardist
Skipper • USA • 11/05/12
One of the best trailers and one of the best cards ever.
Richard Sampson • Afghanistan • 11/02/12
Not my favorite deck out there, but it handles well and the backs and Ace look very nice.
HL • Tokyo • 10/31/12
Rebels are one of t11's top decks for me. At first they remind me of the Sentinels, but they look much better. The red seal and red color inside the tuck box is something that gives deep dimension to the deck. Once I got hand on this deck, I found myself saying "Let's Rebel!"
Tyler • VA • 10/28/12
These cards go on the top of my list right next to the Monarchs and Silver Monarchs. The feel of these cards are amazing and hold up for awhile. The box is amazing. The seal makes everything come together and makes it a work of art and a story to tell.
Luke • GA • 10/27/12
At first glance, I didn't particularly like the design. I thought it looked too busy. As I saw deck reviews, I decided to pick up three. SO glad I did! They handle amazingly and the back design looks amazing in person! Love this deck. Highly recommend it!
Jake C • GB • 10/20/12
Great deck. It handles well and comes with a double backer and identical jokers which can be helpful.
Harry • GB • 10/19/12
This is an astonishing deck that handles extremely well and is very durable. I also like how they have incorporated the rebels sticker in every package, which is the same as the seal. No critiques about this deck! It's a must have!
Wei • NYC • 10/16/12
The red internal box is simply amazing, this collaboration with StudioOne was great.
Liam G • U.K. • 10/13/12
I love the cards. They handle well and the design is amazing. I think the red interior is a great effect however, the faces are identical to the monarchs.
Jahid • London • 10/11/12
looks awesome in all types of fans and for flourishing. I wish they did something with the court cards as well to make it more interesting.
Noah • Indiana, USA • 10/11/12
My friend bought some of these. The box is beautiful, and the ace is pretty sweet as well, but the back of the cards is just black and white without any other apparent colors, and the faces are just copied from the Monarchs. I'm honestly a little dissapointed.
Yisong • Singapore • 10/11/12
First theory11 deck to have thinner borders which is good for fanning! Red inside of the tuck case and nice design and artwork from StudioONE.
Maren • Miami • 10/11/12
I love the back design on these cards but the one thing that really disappoints me is the non-custom court cards. For me that can make a break a deck. They handle very well and have a very bold and powerful feel to them.
Jeffrey • USA • 10/10/12
I think these cards feel really nice in the hands. They handle extremely well but the design is lacking in color and creativity.
Diavo • The District • 10/09/12
Living in DC I love that these card backs have the Capitol building on them. Overall the high quality I expect from T11 cards. The box is nice and fancy, and the red inner color is unique and elegant.
Sam • USA • 10/05/12
I really love these cards. This deck has a very intriguing quality that makes them addicting to look at and to handle. I would give this deck five stars had there not been a dent in the side of the deck box which prevented it from opening properly.
Alex • Quebec • 10/04/12
Amazing deck! The artwork is awesome. The trailer is fabulous, and an overall 5 star deck!
Cam L • Orlando, FL • 09/29/12
Theory11's best deck of cards period! Great quality, great looking, and eye catching! Awesome deck of cards. I will purchase many upon many decks of Rebels. Can't say enough good things!
Brian • USA • 09/27/12
If I had three thumbs, they'd be up for these.
dru • USA • 09/25/12
These cards are beautiful. The design and finish are top notch and the box leaves Sentinals in the dust.

Josh • CT • 09/24/12
The preview made me want to bust out all of my cardistry moves. Love the cards. Nice thin borders.
Harry • GB • 09/24/12
Amazing! Simply amazing!
azzkikncardz • Philippines • 09/24/12
Once again, the tuck box, card art and back design - AWE-MAZING!!!! :D
Arman • United States • 09/23/12
When you first look at this, you're probably thinking, this is like every other theory11 deck, BUT YOU'RE WRONG! This deck is truly an impressive deck that any collector or magician should get. This deck has this sort of "patriotic" type feel by having the U.S. Capital building as part of the design.
It also reminds you of a Bicycle deck with the way the back design was designed. The handling of cards are really great, they're smooth right out of the box and has a nice springy stock. The box design is great as usual with all the nice foiling and embossing like most T11 decks. As always theory11 has done it again!
Boris Stainoff • NYC • 09/23/12
Keeping these puppies sealed for something important.
Brett • England • 09/23/12
Wow, this deck is a must have. The deck looks and feels really cool. The box just makes the deck much better with the red interior and the embossed exterior. GET IT!
Oli Smith • England • 09/23/12
Amazing attention to detail. They have a very unique back design and handle beautifully. Truly a great deck of cards.
Jackson • Earth • 09/22/12
This is definitely the BEST deck of cards on theory11! Keep 'em coming.
Sammuel Keryliuk • Edmonton, AB • 09/22/12
Fantastic. The beautiful thin borders and intriguing design make flourishing that much more extraordinary. Best thing I ever bought!
Tim Henderson • U.S. • 09/22/12
Good design. A great finish, and pretty much pre-broken in stock, making this deck worth it's salt for any cardist or magician out there.
Sam Bower • England • 09/21/12
I've had this deck a few days now and I can see why so much time went into designing them. The design looks much better when the deck is in your hands.
Jonathan • Oklahoma • 09/21/12
Beautiful deck, one of my absolute favorite decks and a work of pure art. Get these now, and you won't be disappointed.
Simon Lomakin • Russia • 09/21/12
The Best Deck EVER! The design is great! Good job t11!
Sam • U.S. • 09/21/12
Wow... I was a little worried at first, but these cards are amazing. These literally blew me away! Thanks theory11!
Kev • England • 09/20/12
Just received delivery of 2 packs and am seriously impressed. The face designs are nothing special. It's your standard design, so don't get too excited. However, the look and feel of the pack as a whole is very nice. I like the red inside the box as it adds an extra something special. Definitely something to add to your collection.
Jonathan Lewis • Barrington, Rhode Island • 09/12/12
This deck is beyond amazing, beyond magnificent, and beyond insane. When I first took these out of the box I noticed the beautiful and unique back design. I love how they feel, the color and design of the face of the cards are amazing. Everyone should have this deck.
Arman • United States • 09/09/12
These cards really are great! I love the all the embossing on the box! The back design are really cool and look like something that I would find on a side of a building. Personally I like how they kept the face cards the same because they look nice. The jokers are incredibly cool and the Ace of Spades is also top notch. Anyway these cards are great!
Andrai Call • Wyomind • 09/08/12
3 words: 'HOL' - 'EE' - 'SH**'.
Austin • USA • 09/06/12
Again Theory11, these are amazing! I watched the video and was blown away. The modern day "rebel" feel to them is unlike any other I've seen. As for the standard faces, they are classic. An amazing design on the back and the gold standard of court faces, and you have a well thought-out and rockin design. I can't wait to order some and see how they feel.
Warren C. • Wyoming • 09/05/12
Holy mackerel! These are INSANE. Really great work. Mesmerizing design - top notch. The only bad thing about the preview video: I had to change my pants after watching it. Haha - love!
Andrew G. • Louisville, KY • 09/04/12
Amazing design! Without a doubt my FAVORITE playing cards theory11 has ever produced. Just ordered a brick. If they feel as good as they look, then I will be in love!
Joseph L. • Seattle, WA • 09/03/12
Absolutely incredible! I'm a huge fan of street art, Shepard Fairey, and StudioNumberONE, so these were like a home run of awesomeness to my eyes!
I love the design, in particular the back design. So detailed, intricate, and for lack of a better term: badass.
Amazing work, theory11. You guys are in a league of your own.
Jake Sullivan • California • 09/02/12
The back/box designs are cool, but I think they're far from "raising the bar from every aspect". If they were really "raising the bar" and "breaking every rule", there would be custom faces. These did not defy my expectations, as I've come to expect these standard faces from t11. Disappointed.
Mike Hankins • Las Vegas • 09/02/12
Been waiting a while for these badboys. Didn't know it was a requirement to have hair that you never brush OR having scruff... I will get some anyway!
Homer Liwag • Las Vegas • 09/01/12
Stop it. These trailers are getting way too good. Andrei, Michael, take a break. Have a sandwich. Shave.
Trideag • Cali, USA • 09/01/12
How do you guys top yourselves every time? Amazing. Stunning. And the best video yet. So damn cool and everything from the detail in the backs to the custom Jokers and Ace to the red lined tuck box -- Superb. Best yet. Bravo T11.
Andrew • NY • 08/31/12
OMG. These are sooooooo dope!
Steven Little • Avondale, Arizona • 08/31/12
Beautiful, elegant, while also capturing a very modern feel. I can tell that these cards will soon become some of my favorites. And let me tell you, I have a LOT of cards! Rebels, though, are unique and exciting. The only thing that would make me happier would be theory11 offering us some uncut sheets. These DESERVE to be hanging on a wall! They're ART!
Matthew LaFlamme • Woodbury, CT • 08/31/12
Holy S**T! Most epic video and most beautiful deck I have ever seen!
