Vintage Casino Playing Cards.
NOTE: Despite the controversy, Ellusionist did not deduct any cards from the photos of Blue Cohorts vs Red Cohorts. The photographs were taken by a freelance photographer (who does not know magic / care about playing card stock) ... The difference in Blue Cohorts is about 6 cards thinner than the original B9 (on Red Cohorts), but the perspective in which the decks were photographed made the difference look far bigger. We apologize if you thought this was mis-leading, this was not our intention. The cards ARE thin, beautiful, durable and simply don't need that photo to prove their worth. We love them and we know you will too.
Our favorite marked deck is finally available in BLUE.
This vintage casino style deck was designed with simplicity in mind. From our classic court cards to the nostalgic back design, Cohorts were engineered to look unassuming on the card table or in the hands of a master card mechanic.
Each deck comes with 52 cards, 2 jokers, 1 alternate color double-backer and a duplicate Queen of spades (for obvious magical reasons).
Hidden within the lines of the intricate back design are markings undetectable to the untrained eye. Easily readable for any magician, card mechanic or mentalist out there.
Printed on our brand new luxury pressed E7 stock in a vibrant blue, this is the crushed stock deck you’ve been waiting for. We worked hand-in-hand with Cartamundi to find an answer to ‘Bicycle Crushed' and boy did we deliver!
As an Ellusionist exclusive this is the only place you can get the thinner-stock cards produced with a durable Cartamundi finish.(We have a 6 month exclusive)
People often comment on Cartamundi's stock... "Their stock would be perfect if it was just a bit thinner" ... NOW IT IS.
This is one deck that you need to feel to believe.

These decks are the perfect everyday carry for any magician. Like all Ellusionist decks they are perfectly smooth and the options for performance are awesome. Don’t just buy me one, buy in bulk cause you’ll be glad you did!!
These cards are incredible straight out of the box! I especially love the design of them! Definitely recommend!
Nice design and feel great
These are great working cards. They fan smoothly right from the box and shuffles, including the faro, are easy. The double backer and duplicate card are always nice to get.
The back design is appealing. I generally prefer a wider border, and a slightly thicker stock, but these are certainly usable.
Overall happy with this purchase, and would recommend.
The Cohorts have a fantastic finish. Smooth, so well designed for all kinds of manipulations. Excellent deck for performing cardistry routines. The marking system is not found by those performers that are knowledgeable of marking systems. What more could you ask of a deck of cards?
Super nice playing card quality. I love the marking system very much. 100% recommended.
This deck of cards is nicely designed, and the handling is really great. The cards are thin, highly flexible, and offer a thousand ways to do tricks, be it mentalism or magic tricks requiering sleight of hands. I'm convinced this is THE deck of card one has to get in his/her arsenal. I recommend the red/ghost editions which are amazing as well.
These cards feel & handle so smoothly. Perfect for magic. The marking system is discreet, yet easy to read. Cohorts are now among my favorite cards to use for magic. Shipped super fast! 1000% satisfied! Will buy more...
I bought these decks to give to my niece and nephew who are enamored with card magic. The ever-so-subtle markings on the back are small enough that I need to wear my ‘cheaters’ but these kids will have NO PROBLEM seeing and understanding the beautifully camouflaged marks.
OUTSTANDING value and very high quality cards. They feel, look and maneuver fantastically.
One of the best deck of cards. Their crushed stock makes them feel great in the hands. The markings are fairly easy to read if you have good eyes. This deck was so popular, they remade the red deck in the same crushed stock. Unlike the red cohorts, the blue deck comes with a red/blue double backer, which provides some additional uses over a standard double backer. You can’t go wrong with the blue cohorts.
