Arcane is the first in Ellusionist's new line of Signature playing cards. Whether you infuse your magic with as much magic and mystery as a fantasy story, or you ground yourself in reality through gambling demonstrations, these cards will help your performance become more elegant, mysterious and powerful.


Three top designers from across the globe working never-ending nights, burning midnight oil, and months of midnight jam sessions to bring you a deck of playing cards unparalleled and unsurpassed in the industry.

Michaelangelo took four years to create the Sistine Chapel masterpiece... these took five.

Printed the U.S. Playing Card Company, the Arcane deck sets new standards for playing cards. Arcane paves the way between the old and the new.

Featured within each deck are classic Ellusionist innovations combined with incredible new features:

  • A simultaneous release of black and white versions. Choose the color that suits your style, or stock up on both to perform double-deck tricks or multi-colored flourishes and displays.
  • An all-new, compelling back design. No angels or bicycles here. Only dark, cryptic glyphs that speak in mysteries. The backs make fans and other XCM displays look like works of art.
  • Newly-designed face cards that match the glyphed, smoky backs. Each court card features traditional faces, but a different, Arcane-styled outfit.
  • High-resolution printing for incredible appearance gradients, and smoke effects.
  • A UV finish that makes the cards look like they are illuminated by powered lights when under a UV lamp.
  • A tuck case with wraparound design. This is the first card box of its kind.



Arcane also offers features found in our other decks of custom playing cards, including:

  • An incredibly designed Ace of Spades that will carve itself into your mind.
  • A newly-designed joker equipped with a blatant yet invisible reveal.
  • Traditional elements of playing cards to ensure spectators' familiarity.
  • A Gaffed Joker card with a "3HEARTS" reveal included.

These cards are very inclined to magic, but refrain from mentalism effects because of the "trick deck" appearance. I personally prefer the white Arcanes, but that's completely an opinion. The white deck outlines the maroon read pips and smoke much better.

Pros
This is a beautiful deck that was very well made. The box is artful, the backs are unique and beautiful, the Jokers creep me out, but are still good looking, I love the smoky effect that is on the royal cards and the Ace of Spades is awesome. These cards feel thick without looking it and fan and spread great. They are good with XCM's and flourishes and offer a mysterious very magical effect to any performance.
Cons
The runes and letters on the back are very much add to the effect of the deck, but can seem to be suspicious and make the cards seem like they're marked.

These have a 'mysterious' look to them, the back design is brilliant and actually one of the first "bleeding" deck's I've seen, the colours on the face 'pop' and the smoke adds a more again mysterious look to the court cards. the jokers don't look anything like 'standard jokers' and have a reveal on one that can be used in different ways.

i felt the 'white' ones were thicker and stiffer and got sticky faster then the black ones. the black one are a bit thicker then regular bicycles but not stiff and very workable

I picked up one of each color in a recent purchase and was somewhat happy. They are very nice cards and handle very well. The design is very different and I do not plan to use them in public because they are nothing like regular Bicycles. Good for collecting, XCM, and practice, but probably not performance.
