The phoenix deck is a deck made for magicians. Years ago, the USPCC would allow magicians to print gaffed and marked cards using their bicycle back design. Unfortunately, those days are long gone and many standard gimmicks are now unavailable. The phoenix deck is a back design commissioned by magicians so that any gaffed card can be printed. They're cut for faros right out of the box and printed on casino quality stock. Best of all, when you switch to Phoenix decks, every single one of your gimmicks will match, so you can switch them in and out unnoticed.
