I adore the Harry Potter series of decks. I don't own any of them yet, but have hinted HARD to my family that I'd really REALLY like to have them for Christmas. If I had to pick just one, it'd be the blue/Ravenclaw deck, since that is 'my house'. As for why I like them? I'm a big fan of the books as well as the movies.

Smoke & Mirror Private Reserve. The design is so just brilliant and elegant, plus the rarity just makes it even more special!

Mine is Still the Ghost Deck from Ellusionist. It's a shame Bicycle won't allow decks like that anymore. I'd buy 100 of'em.

The Sentinels were my favorite! Wish they would come back in print! A close second now is the Provisions deck. I feel it has the same spirit as the Sentinels!

My favorites are probably the Red High Victorians! The design on their backs is breathtaking and I love the court card faces! But my favorite deck does change quite often.

My favorite deck of all time is the timeless and classic Tally-Ho. My go-to deck. Looks great with Cardistry and since it's cheap, I don't mind if it gets a bit wet or dirty when my friends and I use it in coffee shops to play card games.

My favorite is the Ultragaff Deck since its style is so classic and simple - the regular Bicycle Rider Back Deck, but it is quite unique because it is actually a gaff deck, and I think it is a very good one with lots of actual routines and not just flourishes and slights.

My favourites decks are the monarch brand deck,those deck are simply magnificent and elegant as a real monarch but if a had to choose I think the best would be the white gold monarch because it's the color witch I think suit the best to a monarch.

Original Monarchs, no question.

Seeing them in the Now You See Me movies was a treat. But, even before that, I thought of them as T11's first "Batman" deck.

Why? Well, in some versions of the Batman mythos, the Joker's origin story doesn't start by him falling into a vat of chemicals at the "Axis Chemicals" Company. No...

In some versions, the Joker starts out as a criminal named "The Red Hood."

What he robs (or, tries to rob) is... The Monarch Playing Card Company.

And while I didn't make it into the final cut of the film, I did work as an "extra" for a couple weeks on Zak Snyder's 2016 "Batman v Superman" movie. Being an extra often involves a lot of hurrying up... and waiting. Lots and lots and lots of waiting.

So I was very grateful to have a deck of Monarchs with me while I waited. Both for practicing, as well as entertaining my fellow waiting extras.

And, fun fact: there's a creepy, creepy scene in the movie where Lex Luthor feeds a politician a Jolly Rancher candy. It's about Lex asserting control. Flexing his power to get what he wants.

While you can't see it in the final film, just off camera, there was an extra (who was playing a "waiter," charged with cleaning off a table behind the two) who had a deck of Monarchs in his back pocket.

And I know that. Because that extra was me :cool:. Thanks for reading. And best of luck to everyone!
