With an introduction by Richard Osterlind:

The new "KARMA DECK" is something I find very intriguing! Without having to memorize a single thing, the author has come up with a clever idea that will allow you to know the position in the deck of any card named or to know the name of a card at any position in the deck! As you read on you will see there is a stack, but there is absolutely zero memory involved in working it!

The experts say ...

"This is a fantastic idea. It's simple, elegant and practical. At last an age old problem has been solved and we now have a real world alternative to actually memorising 52 cards. Excellent!" - Marc Paul

"The Karma Deck is an ingeniously simple memorized deck system. It is a powerful tool that every magician and mentalist should have in their armory. It is to a magician, what a hammer is to a carpenter. Highly recommended" - Charles Gauci

"This is an amazing system. I like it a lot" - Doc Eason

"This is a new system that I have never seen before. Very easy to remember, you can really learn an entire deck in 5 minutes! Well done!" - Luca Volpe

"Wow! You've actually done it! Your Karma Deck System is an elegant synthesis of concepts that have long been at odds... but now you have them working together harmoniously! I had always hoped that some genius would come up with a rule-based system for quickly knowing the position of every card in the deck, and still allow me to perform all the cyclical-stack material I love. You are that genius! I'd be quite happy to endorse and promote it. In fact, I'd like to start using it in my act right away!" - Dan Harlan

"It shows originality and workability. I really like it. This is a delight to perform and a real fooler. Though I don't use cards, I was tempted to try this and happy I did." - Marc Salem

"It really took less than FIVE MINUTES!! This is astounding when you think of how many complicated systems are out there. This is, by far the easiest method I've ever read and I for one will be using it!!" - Paul Romhany

"I want to say that the concept is brilliant and it is amazing to me that such a pattern would be hidden in the cards - truly mysterious" - Christopher Taylor

"The Karma Deck is quite intuitive and very visual thus making it quick, simple and easy to learn and master the stack in a matter of just a few minutes. It will become your second nature. A great innovative idea." - 'Ustaad' Col. Narendra Singh

"You have developed a totally new approach to a Memorised Deck System. The method can certainly be learnt in a short time, and will appeal to many who find the traditional methods difficult to master. Highly recommended." - Graham Jolley.

"This certainly has the potential to be the easiest and most versatile stack ever. It's too early to crown it as such right now, but it is definitely the one that I'd recommend to anyone who needs to learn a stack and hasn't already or who isn't satisfied with the stack they know and wants to learn a different one." - Jheff

"I think this is one of the very best methods for memorising the order of a deck of cards without any memory work. For those who know the power of using a stacked deck then this will make life so much easier. It took me less than 5 minutes to understand the system and know where the cards are. This has other uses from stacked deck, memorized deck and algorithmic deck so you have lots of ways and effects you can do using this system. This is a great purchase." - Vanish magazine

"The Karma Deck is indeed a clever and different approach from anything else I've seen. I don't use a memorized deck, but if I found a need, I would certainly consider your method seriously." - Bruce Bernstein

Karma Deck is a zero memory, 5 minute memorythmic deck system. This is based on a very clever and innovative principle which is not known to have been used before. This is the optimal combination of a stacked deck, a memorized deck and an algorithmic deck. With minimal effort, even a beginner can master this in no time at all. Almost all the effects existing for a stacked, memorized or algorithmic decks can be performed with this, and far more easily.


  • Karma Deck is a game changer. 100% intuitive with zero memory work.
  • If a 12 year old can learn Karma Deck in just 6 minutes, you can definitely learn in 5.
  • Karma Deck can be used as a stacked deck, memorized deck or an algorithmic deck.
  • Karma Deck is based on a very innovative and clever principle (probably the world's first)
  • Given a position you can know the card. Given a card you can know its position.
  • Given a card you can know what card is before it as well as after it. Also, how many cards are above it and below it in the deck.
  • With Karma Deck, if you cut the deck you can know how many cards are in each pile. And also what cards are in each pile.
  • If you distribute Karma Deck to 52 people you can know who has what card for everybody.
  • Karma Deck works with any suit order of your choice like CHaSeD, SHoCkeD, DuCHeS etc etc.
  • Karma Deck system allows you to do amazing routines even without a deck of cards.
  • Almost all existing routines of any stacked or memorized or algorithmic decks can be done with Karma Deck. And much more easily.

This has to be one of the best, ingenious ways to “memorize” a deck. So easy to learn and easy to perform. Kudus to Unknown Mentalist.

While the thinking behind this is brilliant, I didn't find the advantages were sufficient for the added complexity, when compared against a standard Si Stebbins set up. I decided to go the extra mile and memorize a deck.

If there is an Oscar Award for stack magic, I would give it to the Karma Deck without a second thought. The Karma Deck principle has redrawn the very foundations of stack magic as it has been structured so far. The history of stack magic will have 2 clear divisions now. Before Karma Deck and After Karma Deck. For me personally, this has entirely changed my thinking on stack magic and infact removed so many blocks. Calling this simply brilliant will be a gross understatement. Together with Karma Deck Pro and Kommando Kard, I have enough stack magic ammunition for the next decade, at least. I cannot recommend it enough.

Have been actually using the Karma Deck for over 6 months now.

Well, the basic idea of Karma Deck is pure genius, of course.

On the top of that, it is so versatile. The main principle can give you 6 different stacks.

And then it's solid power. I discovered in Amazers with Karma Deck. Many hidden patterns, which are totally invisible to the audience eyes.

Yet, so flexible. Multiple suit systems can be combined with the stack seamlessly.

The stage routine Deckcelence with the Karma Deck is a sheer delight to perform. A reputation maker.

Even when I did not use the stack for over 3 weeks, it was UNFORGETTABLE.

After using 8 Kings and Si Stebbins for over 15 years, I can say that Karma Deck is the best stack that happened to me, which will stay with me.

Right now my excitement is sort of overflowing.

The author shared with me a mega routine with Karma Deck which uses over 200 different playing cards.

I got a chance to perform this recently at my college annual day celebrations (I teach undergrads).

And what a devastating impact it created !!! Thank you, U n Me, for giving the Karma Deck to the community.

For me, Karma Deck is 'THE' benchmark of stack magic in the past half century, at least.

There are several systems exists, some are very popular and some other is not. Only because of individual ability to adapt the theory and implementing it perfectly. So no comparisons needed. The Interesting thing about "Karma Deck System" is, it maintains K.I.S.S (Keep It Simple & Short) principle while understanding the basics, once you master in it, then you can entertain anyone as you are like a Full Time Entertainer in Vegas Club. so Karma deck is just acting as a Catalyst to build your own act and Professional Shows.

Karma Deck breaking the Silos and inspiring many more to apply their brain for more innovations. Thanks to the inventor and to those who inspired him to explore new ways Good luck

An amazingly easy system to create a memorized deck that allows quick retrieval of what card is at a specified position, or at what position a specified card lies. There is almost nothing to remember. I found this perfect for some effects that required a memorized deck, but were not possible with other memorized decks. The Karma Deck is worth every paisa.

I had been using other memorized decks all these days, but after getting the Karma Deck, instantly switched to this one, as I feel it hardly strains the brain. It is not that we have to look at the gimmick each time we perform; it is just to master the method/system in a short span of time. A very clever idea from a dear friend of mine. Hats off to you for such a wonderful innovative idea.

I just purchased the Karma Deck PDF and I am absolutely excited to learn the methodology of the Memorized Deck. It is indeed a very clever and genius invention in bringing about a very easy way to memorize a full deck. The best part is that the gimmick is more a mental image rather than a physical object! Hats off to this brilliant invention of which I had no clue of before! No wonders Richard Osterlind has given it a thumbs up endorsement.

Interesting but I can't see the plus, compared to Si Stebbins for instance. It has the same drawbacks as S.S, and it is very easy with S.S to do the same things, without having to look at a "gimmick" that some (like me) don't even carry with them nowadays. And if you have to look at a gimmick, why not look at a crib sheet?! Plus the fact that it will look weird to look at it everytime you want to know the position of a card, while with S.S, it can be done as fast and in your head. Unless there were some examples of effects that you could do with this system, and not with other ones, I will stick to Si Stebbins.
