Any control I feel like doing
I use these everyday
These two moves are barely what you need to make a good solid ACR routine. Anyways moving on.
A move that I'm currently practicing on, and I find it very very versatile.
What is reality?
Everything is reality but also illusion.
Life is a endless game!
Overhand Shuffle Control (whether Chop or Jog)
Multiple Lift (Double/Triple/Quads)
I guess i'd need...
1) Double lift.
2) Erdnase Palm.
4) Hofsinzer card force.
5) Elmsey count.
That should be enough.
Well, to be honest id need more than five but i guess thats the challenge
1 Double Lift
3 Pass (Ortiz Shift/Herman)
4 Classic Force
5 False Shuffle (Push through riffle/Zarrow)
My five would be
1. Classic Pass that would take care of controls, DL, color changes, seconds, false cuts, force and other sleights needed im sure.
3. False Shuffle
4. and 5. Card Reverse and Optical Revolve. I love my triumph. lol
Im changing my list. I dont use a false shuffle except for like 2 tricks so Im replacing that with a DL. I can't go without a Red Hot mama.
It's a hard question, but I'll give my try to anwser it anyway.
Those are the five sleights i use most.
My method of culling
and the stealth change
I think the cull should be on everyone's list.
You can use it as a control, an out, a force, to invisibly set up the deck for effects, or to even use your own shuffled deck in use as a card index. It's easily one of the most versatile moves in card magic.
That's a tough one!
With those 5 you can perform an incredible array of incredible effects
DL (My version of the instantaneous (spelling?))
Control (Orbit/Faro, can't decide. I'd take classic pass instead if I could do it well enough.)
Force (Classic if I could do it, so far the hindu shuffle/Hofzinser spread cull depending on the situation.)
Gravity half pass
I'd add culling if I could do it, but so far I've not been able to try learning it for more than 10 minutes before entering a "MY BRAIN HURTS"-ish state a'la Monty Python.
Gravity Half Pass
Color Change (Shape Shifter)
I do know that I already have written a post in this thread, but. Here's the new "Top 5 sleights" list:
-I do not know if it's allowed to add, but I like the Key card principal very much
