This deck is meant to be the same. On the surface, Ellusionist’s new Masters Edition Playing Cards appear to be completely normal backed Bicycle cards. Underneath the surface lies remarkable quality never before seen in a normal deck of Bicycle Playing Cards.
Featuring premium, casino-grade card stock, the Masters Edition represents the highest quality playing cards printed at the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC).
The only aesthetic changes are a redesigned, revolutionized Ace of Spades (see it) and an amp’d up box.
Over the years BicycleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Rider Back deck has unfortunately become known for poorly cut edges, off centred printing, variants in colour tone, and sand paper type finishes. For this reason I am more likely to purchase a set of sponge balls than a pack of RiderÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s. After handling the MastersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s night and day.
They unquestionably last longer than your normal Rider Back (I have honestly been using them, and using them, and…) They exit the box ready for show. No need for ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“breaking-inÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ (the edges are smooth like TH9’s).
Tricks with the aces have become habit just for the pleasure of seeing the spade go by. I just can’t believe that you’re selling a deck that lasts four times as long as a normal for almost the same price as that normal. Wait, that’s a good thing, never mind that.
