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.

Love the feel of these and the marking system is great. They feel already broken in out of the box.
i love the cards they are of top quality and the marked system is well thought out. I have been using the cards for over a year and no one has ever noticed it
Great decks for both magic and cardistry. thanks Ellusionist!
The Cohorts are excellent for all card work. Whether you're using them for magic, cardistry or mentalism, they handle well, look amazing and the markings are easy to read. They are well hidden in plain sight.
I needed some cards for utility during other tricks, and I wanted ones that looked good without being overly ornate or distracting. These feel great so far!
Thin. Clean. Marked.
I love handling these cards - awesome for magic!
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.
