This may be already known to some, but I just learned it and am so happy I did! You can do The Invisible Deck routine without a gaffed deck. I've been using the standard roughing method with my ID routine. But gaffs come with downsides, like having to switch decks, not being able to have the deck examined, etc.

So I was super excited to find the routine is possible with a stack. Michael Close shows it on his Workers 1 DVD and it's really pretty easy, assuming you have the stack down cold and can cull one card. And it works with any stack, I believe. Michael Close uses Aronson.

I may be late to this particular party (I'm only a 2-and-a-half-year-old magician, after all :-P), but if there are folks here who don't know, well...now you do[smile].

Yup - any stack. Close does use Aronson. Great routine. But if you picked up Redford's Temporarily Out of Order, you should check out the Facebook page. Redford has added some nice touches to the routine.

Kiko Pastur and Marcello Insua (to name a few I'm sure there are many other magicians) also have invisible deck routines done impromptu with borrowed shuffled decks.  I much prefer Kiko Pasturs, as (although it requires some sleight of hand) it looks moveless.  You simply name the card and fan the deck to reveal one card face down.  Apparently it's based on an Alex Elmsley idea.

...and of course Dani DaOrtiz also has many impromptu invisible deck methods.  And plenty more involving stacks!
