Deadlift! No ... not the heavy compound movement that works for multiple muscle groups. Instead, this is a hard-hitting piece of mentalism that looks very clean. It is a hands-off impossible card divination that can be done with any regular deck and no gimmicks.
You riffle shuffle the cards. While your back is turned they cut to a card, they memorize it, and they bury it somewhere in the deck. You turn around, and with 100% accuracy, you can go through the cards and remove their thought-of card.
To perform this effect, you will need a very small setup that takes only a few seconds.

"A very elegant trick that will baffle your audience." - Paul Brook
"Deadlift looks super clean. An invisible method that you can apply loads of presentations." - Warren Thackeray
"If the method is 100%, this is a magician dream trick!" - Rocco Silano
