There are so many possibilities with a stacked deck, or better yet, "Impossibilities." That's because these decks look regular but what you can do with them quite casually can appear incredible. It's an old stack that's still worth its salt is, "The Si Stebbins Stack." It's sorta the granddaddy of this kind of amazing card magic. And it has a mathematical
build to it that allows for a variety of other approaches as to magically finding a selected card and or knowing where or what a card is as to its position. This effect is a refreshing and fun way I found to make a bit more magic happen from this genius of a deck.
Effect: The magi places a prediction on the table face down, and when it is turned over it reads: "Your card is "12" cards down." The deck is spread showing the cards are mixed. A spectator then gives the cards a cut and two completely free choices to either select the top two cards, the bottom two, or even one from the top and one from the
bottom. When they do and the cards are totaled, as per the prediction that very card will be 12 cards down from the top or the bottom every time.
