-||A Note About The Trailer||-
The cards seen in the trailer are prototypes from MPC. The final designs of the pips can be seen on the uncut sheet posted further down on the campaign.
After years of playing around with various decks of cards I noticed certain features of each deck that I absolutely loved, but found no deck that contained everything I wanted. Some decks had a really nice box, but average looking cards, others had really nice back designs but standard faces and a regular box. That's when I decided to try and come up with something that ticks all of the boxes for what I believe to be an overall aesthetically pleasing deck of cards that looks and feels luxurious while also being affordable.
Initially, I came up with a concept for the back design, but given I have no experience with graphic design I sourced out a graphic designer, Gart, who took everything on board and created this beautiful deck of cards.
I chose to go with Hanson Chien Production Co. to produce these cards as this company has produced some amazing and popular decks recently, such as Red Stripe Playing Cards, Odyssey, Frostbite, and the infamous Chicken Nugget playing cards.

The idea for the back design was inspired by a combination of different decks which I absolutely love, some of these being Orbits, Virts and Memento Mori.
Below (on the left) is the initial concept I had next to the final design (on the right).
The designs in the top left and bottom right corner were created in such a way as to create a beautiful display when fanning the cards.
The court cards have also been completely redesigned as almost every deck has traditional court cards. I decided to get very uniquely designed court cards made to give the deck a fresh look.
The Jokers are identical as I've realised there are some strong magic tricks out there that require the use of two identical jokers.
This box is a thing of beauty. Intricately detailed design highlighted by the use of gold foil all over the box, even on the inner flap. Instead of printing on standard white card and printing the black background, we managed to source black card and print on that instead which gives the feeling of a high quality product.
The inner flap is printed in gold foil, displaying an 'illuminati-esque' eye in the centre which represents deception.
Shipping costs from Australia suck, so, to keep costs down for you guys the best way for me to send you the cards is via a couple of parcels for larger orders (for some reason it's cheaper doing it that way). I hope that's cool with you guys! Also, prices are in AUD below.

Risks and challenges
The main challenge will be the initial fulfilment of the bulk orders from this campaign. I am more than confident that I, with the help from friends and family, will be able to get these decks out to everyone in a timely manner!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
