Have a read....
I FIND MARKED DECKS REALLY HARD TO READ. WILL I BE ABLE TO READ THE BORIS WILD MARKED DECK?
"The BWMD (Boris Wild Marked Deck) has been designed so you do not have to decipher the identity of a card by counting the number of petals on a flower or where the missing dot is on the clock. It is a direct marking that you can see when the cards are spread on the table or between your hands. With just a glimpse at the back of the card, you know its identity immediately. Plus I explain on the DVD set how to mark your own deck if you do not want to use the factory-printed one and I show you how to customize it so it fits you and becomes a deck that is for you and you can read easily."
CAN I USE THE BORIS WILD MARKED DECK AS MY EVERYDAY DECK?
"That’s what I have been doing for almost twenty years now! I do not need the marked deck for all my routines of course, but it is always there and whenever I need it, I get challenged by a spectator or I am in trouble, I can count on it. This deck has allowed me to perform true miracles that no other deck can do especially non marked ones of course! ;) On top of the routines designed for it that I deliberately chose to be as clean as possible so you do not do card tricks but magic with cards, the deck has saved my life so many times that I will eternally be grateful to it!"
ISN'T A MARKED DECK JUST USEFUL FOR FINDING A SINGLE CARD? WHY DO I NEED A SPECIAL DECK JUST TO DO THAT ONE THING?
"Lots of people think that a marked deck is only useful to know what card has been chosen so you can easily reveal it later. Of course, it is not only that. If you combine a good marked deck system with other principles and/or techniques, you have a true weapon in your hand that can allow you do to so many things. I particularly like to use the marked deck in a non-direct way or before/after the moment where people usually use it so no one can suspect the use of one."
WHAT MAKES THE BORIS WILD MARKED DECK DIFFERENT?
"The deck has a unique feature because you can locate any card (named, chosen or needed) in a few seconds only while casually spreading the deck. The location of a card is very fast thanks to the direct marking system and a concept that allows you not to look at all the cards of the deck. With this deck, you can do many things that no other marked deck can do in such a clean, fast and natural way. Thousands of people are using it in the world today on an everyday basis for that reason."
DOES A FISM WINNING MAGICIAN REALLY USE A MARKED DECK?!?!?
"Yes he does! The marked deck truly helped to build my reputation in the magic world on top of my FISM act. I lectured about all over the world for the past twenty years to show that card magic is not only about skill if you have a good tool and use it the right way. As I said earlier, this deck completely changed my vision of card magic and allowed me to go from "the little Frenchie who does card tricks" to "Boris Wild who performs magic with cards". And believe me, if you use my marked deck the way I explain it on the DVD set, you too will able to do miracles with it."
