    Saturday Night Contest - Create a Flourish!

    So here's my entry. It's far from perfectly smooth but I'm not going to have any time to work on it tommorow so it's the best I have for now. That said, I'm really happy with how it came out, it's a completely false cut and I think it will look really good after a couple months of practice. I'm...

    Beginning two handed cardistry

    I'm fairly new to flourishing as well, but the ones that I was able to learn fairly easily and have been working on perfecting over the last few months are sybil, class act, werm and faux.

    red monarchs

    Huge thanks to everyone who left helpful advice! I definitely have a better idea on how to move forward (apparently it will involve a lot of reading). It's great that theory 11 has such a supportive community!

    I'm new to magic, any advice?

    Bike standards are all I've used this far. I've watched some YouTube videos as well as the ones posted here and on ellusionist.

    I'm new to magic, any advice?

    I'm pretty new to magic and cardistry (about a month in). Now that I've got the basics (a clean double lift, a fast Sybil cut, a couple good forces and jumps) does anyone have any advice on how to move forward such as good tricks to learn or decks I need in my collection? Any tips would be great!
