This is the second custom deck we have looked at from RSVP Magic and like the Timeless Deck it is a thing of beauty. I don’t know if it is just me, but such a lot of the custom decks recently seem to have featured skulls and apocalyptic type imagery, so the Butterfly Deck represents a welcome change with its art-deco inspired elegance.
Unlike many of these custom decks, even the indices have been re-styled, and there are beautiful court cards and jokers, and a spectacular Ace of Spades. One of the Jokers has a ‘Queen of Hearts Reveal’ incorporated, and the deck also includes two very useful matching gaffs – a blank faced card and a double backed card. This seems very sensible for a deck aimed at magicians.
They’re generally priced around £6 which is about standard for a custom deck. Our review copy was kindly supplied by MA Pro Magic who charge a competitive £5.36. (It was also featured in the January offering for our Playing Card Club)
