ORC – Optimum Rising Cards by Taiwan Ben(c. 2013) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Like many people I’m a big fan of the Marcelo Contento Jumbo Rising Card and having a regular sized deck that is remote controlled sounds like a great plan. This deck is ok but doesn’t quite replace my Devano deck for most circumstances.
It is reliable and has a good range. However, the block required to house the mechanics to my mind takes up too much of the deck. If it was 20 cards or less this would be huge. The Devano deck I use (from one half of the Douglas-Wayne Illusioneering team: the master craftsman George Richbark) leaves 37 cards free after the block – this is more than plenty to show the deck is normal. With ORC you have about 8 cards free from a normal deck – way too few. They get around this by actually supplying more cards and expanding the box size. Most people won’t notice this and so it is an ok compromise.
If you really need a remote controlled version of the rising cards in poker size I would go with the Marc Antoine version – works better with a much smaller gimmicked bank of cards.
