It certainly is. The reason Morgician hasn't put them in his routine is because he's a Table hopper and a lot of the effects need a bit more time than Table hopping would require. I didn't really like the Big Tiny because once you've performed, the deck is pretty much toast. I've done Twilight Angels and Backlash 2 and both have actually pretty much gotten really good reactions. With Twilight Angels you CAN use the clean handling they teach. But personally I prefer to use the one with the force that is taught. It makes it look more natural and a bit better. Plus they don't chase you, because it's such an out in left field card trick. My problem is that the set only came with TWO of the things required for it.
