Card magic meets Facebook. Take you card magic to the 21st century! Social Deck is a custom made deck that contains artwork inspired by various social media sites.

These tricks feel personal and they are immediately interesting to anyone who uses social networks. And if you think about it, that is practically everyone.

You can use almost any of your favorite card routines with this deck from ambitious card to oil and water. And you will see how much better reactions you will receive even from someone who does not like card tricks at all.
FISM Grand Prix winner Soma truly understands what captures the attention of today's audiences. He has perfected The Social Deck over hundreds of performances it has been part of his close-up working repertoire for years.
No extraordinary skill required. If you can do a double lift you can do this.
