Riser Deck by Mark Elsdon!

The Effect
You do your regular ACR and then put the deck back into its box. You sat to the spectator 'You might think I am doing some funny business with my hand so the cards are in the box so I cant touch the cards' the spectator him/her self pushes there sighed selected card into the deck ANYWHERE!! They see it till the last second, the lid is closed and with a snap of the fingers the card is now on top, EVEN ABOVE THE BOX LABLE, you open the box and the spectator takes the top card which is unbelievable the sighed card!!!

Creator
Mark Elsdon

Where to find it
www.alakazam.co.uk

Cost
Yes this effect is expensive but it is well, well worth every penny!!! At £45 from Alakazam, you can’t go wrong; you will not be disappointed by this in anyway!!

Difficulty
Without a shadow of a dowt it will be 2/5, You have to practice it, just like everything!(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used, 4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

Review
A must have for all the ACR performers out there. No funny business!! You have to see it to see how amazing it actually is!! If you buy this amazing effect you will not leave the house without it!!

Overall
Over all I am giving this effect 10/10!! Thank you Mark for creating this killer effect!!

So... that's it?

How about a *review* rather than simply a summary?

• How practical
• How well constructed
• Value for money
• 'Bottom drawer' factor

Practicality - In a standard ACR you'd have to do a switch before this phase. So to some impractical, others would take it in their stride. No problem in a well constructed routine.

Construction - Absolutely top notch. Made by Rob Bromley so you can't go wrong. If you knew the subtleties that have gone into the design and development you'd appreciate the quality of the product even more.

Value for money - Hmm, it's expensive that's for sure. And it is entirely a one trick pony whichever way you dress the presentation. On the other side of the coin each unit is made by hand and takes about 4 man hours o create so in that light it's quite cheap.

Bottom Draw factor - Again hmmm. if you find the right place for this in your working set it'll be a staple, whereas a hobbyist would probably pop it straight in the draw once they'd shown it to their friends and family. Make of that what you will.

The artist who does not rise, descends.
