DMC Elites Green Marked Playing Cards
The new DMC ELITES V4 marked deck (now in forest green) is the latest iteration in the ongoing quest by Drummond Money-Coutts to create the most powerful deck of cards available for professional magicians today. The ELITES are a unique collaboration between DMC himself (star of National Geographic's CARD SHARK and BEYOND MAGIC WITH DMC, and of the upcoming Netflix series DEATH BY MAGIC) and designer and magic creator Phill Smith - architect of the revolutionary OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM. This brand new DMC ELITES V4 is the most versatile, nuanced and advanced version of ELITES ever created.
For the first time ever, the DMC ELITES V4 is now printed by the iconic United States Playing Card Company on their legendary Bee stock, still the world's favourite choice. The cards will endure hours upon hours of professional use, and all faces are standard USPCC faces for minimum scrutiny or suspicion from your audience.
The cards themselves feature the latest revision of the unique OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM (OMS), a powerful 'reader' system designed specifically for the use of magicians and mentalists (as opposed to many decks designed for the gambling world). The OMS has an ingeniously hidden marking mechanic that is readable with extreme speed, at great range and even in poor light. It hides the value and suit of the card in plain sight with no decoding necessary - the back of the card literally says the value and the suit. Despite this, you can still comfortably hand the deck to a layman, safe in the knowledge that even the most critical observer would not ever suspect, let alone detect, the secret markings. So subtle, in fact, is the OMS that with the first edition of ELITES - many magicians complained that they'd been sent an unmarked version!
Drawing on the feedback from many hundreds of performers, the OMS has evolved significantly over the years, and in this version the markings are located in all four corners for the very first time - welcoming lefties into the ELITES family. A second quantum leap now allows the markings to be read from a relatively slim spread of cards on the table - or even a fan of cards held in the hands. Finally, the deck also now features a very clear, one-way marking system, allowing for delayed reads and unlocking a whole new realm of methods. Each deck also comes with an instruction card that explains the markings visually - with no language limitations for international performers.
DMC ELITES V4: the greatest marked deck in a generation - now greater than ever.
DISCLAIMER: These cards have been created with professional magic and mentalism in mind. Cheating at games through any means of duplicity - be it skillful or through specialised equipment - is unethical, immoral, and illegal. The creators, manufacturers and distributors of the ELITES range of playing cards cannot accept any responsibility for the unethical abuse or misuse of these playing cards.
Most of the marked cards I that I collect, I don't really use for magic. I tend to prefer collecting and playing around with them to get a feel rather than use. It's just what I do with the cards in my collection. That being said. I actually DID use this deck. Due to this being a reader back (a more specified marked system), there was much less room for error on my behalf. The marking system is very deceptive and this version (as opposed to previous versions) include improvements such as inclusion of marks on right side as well as indicator for the one-way system. There's a reason why when you go on Youtube and type " Best Marked Cards" many people have some version of the DMC Elites on their list. I would highly recommend!
This deck has given me new advantages to card tricks leaving the spectators speechless!
There are many marked decks out in the market at varying costs. This latest DMC Elite V4 is the best one yet. It's pricey at $20 when you can get marked decks for half to cost. But this one is worth every single cent.
The optical marking system lives up to the hype as it really does allow even those of us with poor eyesight to see the markings even across the table. It's that large and clear to read once you've learnt how to see it. Plus they've improved on it to put the markings on all 4 corners and included a devious 1 way marking into the design. I couldn't find the 1 way mark even though I already knew how to read the OMS, without reading the instructions.
Forget all the other decks with all their so-called 'clever' marking systems. This one is actually readable and usable for everyone, almost right out of the box.
Of all the marked decks, this one is probably the best if you're looking for cards that can be easily read from a distance. There's also a terrific book you can buy here on PCD which is produced by the same company, and explains the deck and includes 9 different effects you can do with it - it's called "Passport to Marked Decks" by Phill Smith and DMC. I picked it up along with this deck and am glad that I did.
This is possibly the best “Marked Deck” one can buy. The backs of the cards look are a deep “Forest Green” with a random pattern of leaf-like white lines that make the backs look very attractive and innocent. But innocent they are not. Each back has three separate secrets marked on them I’m several different locations. The wonderful part is that unless one knows the secrets all of the markings are really next to impossible to notice. One of the things that make the deck so great is that if one knows the secret the markings stand out large and bold. It’s really uncanny that others really have no idea they’re there. There are many people, including myself, that think this is the best marked deck on the market. And it comes with a deck of cards that is second-to-none in quality.
The tuck case is made of heavy-duty durable paper and has a nice textured finish. it is Forest Green with a gold-metallic ink That is the logo of the British magician DMC. He recently starred in the ShowTime mini-series “Death By Magic”. These are the same cards he uses quite often on the show. The card’s themselves are top quality. They have a very nice feel and snap. They’re very durable too and perfect for every-day use. And it’s a fantastic deck for any magician! The faces of the cards are all standard except for a custom Ace of Spades. The two Jokers are identical except for a card reveal on one of them. They feature the outline of a bust of magician DMC.
Top quality and highly recommended!
