I only know one and it's by Kenton Knepper called Sleightly Touched from the dvd Blank.

It uses a very old method & I've added my own personal touch to the effect...

What are your favorites?

Rick-

PS; That's a blank face deck, not blank on both sides.

Always liked Howard Hamburg's Mystical 13. Self working, too.

To make it three, I would add Dean Dill's Blizzard and John Lovick's I Dream of Mindreading.

They are all different from each other and all finish examinable.

"I Hate Card Tricks" by Stephen Bargatze
This is my favorite blank deck routine.  He taught a handful of us at Michigan Magic Day in Kalamazoo, MI back in 2005.

Of course there's the Nudist deck that Don Alan popularized. Also called Mental Photography I believe.

Watched that Sleightly Touched and was great.  Was fooled the first time through!  What's that self working method called again? I've seen it used before in other card tricks.. it's really clever.

Ambitious Card works well with a blank pack. Even better if the cards are blank both sides.

You're right about Ambitious card with blank deck Alan. Every card in a double blank deck is a double backer! So many possibilities in AC.

Thanks for that Mike. I hadn't realised. I thought they were double facers.

I don't know the name of the force..but it's the same one in Jay Sankey's Shuffle, Cut & Deal. This really goes over well with laypeople, in fact it kills.

In fact, I do it the way Kenton Knepper does it.

The two force cards are at the bottom of the dealt packet.

Completely unrelated to a blank deck (although, it might be fun to try this one with a blank deck), but one of my favorite effects that uses a similar principle ("you can shuffle/mix up as much as you want as long as you don't mix up the bottom N cards when dealing N piles") that also happens entirely in the hands of the spectator is Chad Long's Shuffle Lesson:
