Marksman Deck (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) by Luke Jermay

Marksman Deck (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) by Luke Jermay


"I recommend this to fans of Luke Jermay, aficionados of card mentalism, and of course collectors of decks with marking systems. If you’re a working pro who wants to up your game at the close-up table or as a stand-up mentalist, invest your time and money with the Marksman Deck."-Danny Orleans, Genii Magazine

Magicians have used marked decks for centuries to fool even the most astute audiences. Luke Jermay's Marksman Deck builds on classic marking systems, with additional secret marks that open up a whole range of new tricks and possibilities. While the deck can be used for your own marked deck routines, Luke also teaches five of his own semi-automatic tricks: 

  • Three Tests of Intuition 
  • Dowsing 
  • Card Peeks Routine 
  • Card Calling 
  • Card Memory 

Includes a specially marked red Bicycle Mandolin deck and a 45-minute online instructions by Luke Jermay. 

Usable for magicians but built particularly for mentalists, the Marksman Deck is jam-packed with information that allows you to do effects never before possible. 

The marks allow you to: 

  • Find the current card 
  • Find the card above 
  • Know the position of the card in the stack 
  • Know how many cards are above it 
  • Know how many red (and therefore also black) are above it 
  • Know the combined total of all the card values above it 


"Theodore De Land's Automatic Deck premiered in 1913 and has been a personal favorite for four decades. Leave it to Luke Jermay to modernize the best parts and then add actual improvements. The Marksman is an absolute bull's eye." 
- Michael Weber 

"The kind of effects one dreams of are now possible thanks to this utility prop. More proof that Luke is an exceedingly clever thinker and performer." 
- Paul Wilson 

"I've seen a lot of marked decks, but I think this must be one of the best ever designed. Jermay has not only done yeoman work in the design and placement of the various marks (which are pleasantly easy for the trained eye to read), but has added a number of unique marks designed especially for particular routines that otherwise would require a lot of difficult sleight of hand. The instructions come in the form of a DVD in which Jermay explains everything simply and clearly. I think the Marksman Deck is something you will actually use." 
- Richard Kaufman 

"With Jermay's Marksman Deck, you will hit the bull's eye and perform deadly routines. Its combined features make it the perfect weapon in your arsenal!" 
- Vincent Hedan 

"Over and over, the debate 'should a mentalist use playing cards?' pops up in threads among enthusiasts of the field. I personally never believed the premises of the question itself, but here is a most cogent answer in the form of a new, brilliant Jermay release. Luke took a classic idea and turned it into something that has so much more potential than anything similar yet available. More than a utility device, this is a fully engineered system waiting to be exploited by the savvy performer. A companion book, with thoroughly detailed routines and scripts, will guide you in discovering this most amazing advance in the art of demonstrating psychic miracles with just a deck of cards." 
- Marco Fida 

Add the Marksman Deck to your tools, and watch your mentalist abilities soar!

  • Jamie's Notes


    • Makes you look like a card shark
    • Great mentalism with a deck of cards
    • Great for a small to parlor sized show
    • Bicycle stock


    • The marks are not subtle and will not pass casual examination



    This is a great deck that is designed to make you look like a card shark and allows you to perform some incredible feats of mentalism with a deck of cards. Although they are not designed for close-up work as the marks are not really subtle, you could get by with no issues performing in a close-up situation as you can see in the demo video.
