The unique marking system hidden in the back-design of The Butterfly Playing Cards contains two different marking systems that can be used separately, and they will make you a miracle worker if they are combined. An explanation of this written marking system explanation is included, as well as a link to online video instructions.
The cards were designed with two main goals in mind.
1. They have to be complex and irregular enough to disguise the markings.
2. They have to be pretty enough to justify their use over a more common deck of playing cards.
Cartamundi's card stock is soft, the finishing feels amazing, and it is very durable. And their quality control is so strict that any deck containing even a single card that is off-cut for more than 0.5mm gets discarded.

It’s easy to see how captivating and beautiful this deck is, but the marking system is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately I don’t see myself personally using it but it’s a beautiful deck for my collection and can be a secret tool to use if I ever choose to!
I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on All Marked Deck systems, but I do own a few. This is one of the most unique systems I own. It is not just designed to read from the back, but also from the sides. With a slight bevel in the cards, you can determine the position the cards without any problem. This opens up a world of possibilities if you're the type of magician that uses a marked deck. The design of the back is intricate and beautiful as well. Due to the nature of the marking system, be aware that this is a BORDERLESS deck. I just thought you should know before buying. All that being said, definitely an amazing deck!
These cards are so wonderful and beautiful. The marking system is easily seen if you fan or spread the cards which is upsetting but it’s not something people will be able to figure out.
The marking system doesn’t seem too difficult. I’m working on it for a couple days now but it’s really only going to be useful if you’re not going to spread your cards in front of your spectators.
The design is absolutely wonderful! Colors are bold and the cards feel silky smooth!
The design I would give a 10/10
The marking system I would give a 6/10
If you’re looking for a serious hidden fully marked deck I would look more for Madison Dealers or Mint. My personal opinion!
Pick up a deck if you’re interested. They do feel wonderful to work with!
I love magic and I love nice decks. This combines the two for a very nice tool of the trade. Ondrej Psenicka is a genius. When combined with a deck stack, this deck is capable of pure miracles(with practice of course.) They are beautiful to look at with tons of surprises and the download video explains very well how to use the system. Definitely a will buy again deck.
I was first introduced this deck by my friend - who got prototype form Ondrej. It blew me away and i told myself - i gotta get it !
I have been playing around w this deck for a long while - thats becuz once u pick it up, u cant put it down. Its that addictive
