    Card Magic: Is it better to display prowess in cards?

    Will magic tricks be more convincing in the eyes of an audience if the magician impresses them with his expertise in handling cards or will clumsily handling the deck on purpose to falsely display inexperience in using cards during the trick surprise the audience more?

    Sorry, I don't know how to word the question. Just curious, if all you have is a deck of cards (plus any everyday items like Sharpie and paper), is there a point where classic sleight of hand magic just cannot compete with card magic done with expensive props or gimmicks?
