The Svengali deck is one of the oldest trick decks in magic. Literally hundreds of tricks can be performed with this single deck of cards.
The spectator selects a card from the middle of the deck. The magician places the card face down on the table. Another spectator chooses card. Suddenly the first spectator's card is found on the top of the deck and has exchanged places with the second spectator's card on which is now on the table.
Or...The spectator chooses a card randomly from the center of the deck. The magician cuts the cards into 3 piles. No matter which pile the spectator chooses, the selected card is now found on top of that packet...
Or...A spectator selects any card and its shuffled back into the deck. The magician then finds the card by changing the whole deck into the selected card!
Or...A card is selected and returned to the pack. The magician then feels the backs of the cards one at a time and is able to find the selected card by "sensing" which card is warmer from the spectators touch! The selected card is then placed back into the middle of the deck again only to jump to the top of the deck. The cards are then cut once placing the selected card in the middle of the pack again - but say the magic words and the selected card is on top again!
The Svengali deck is also the perfect "forcing" deck that practically does all the work for you.
