The Finest Marked Deck We've Ever Created 



They say that good design is appealing... but has no story - When it does, we call it art.

That's exactly what Pioneers are. They're so much more than a vintage-inspired deck. They are art.

The tuck box is constructed of exquisite laid card, capturing the texture of period-accurate paper. Debossed in all the right places, to create a 4th dimension of quality. 


On the back is a lady of liberty, with a phoenix at her feet. In her left hand is the flag of the United States - in her right is the lesser-known but equally poignant flag of Chicago.

The deck inside is printed on luxury-pressed E7 stock for that crushed but durable feel. This is the exact stock you've fallen in love with from our Cohort decks.

However, you won't notice any borrowed artwork here, Pioneers are fully custom, inside and out. From the distinctive deck seal to the impeccable pips. Every detail and line on the tuck, backs, aces, and jokers was painstakingly hand-drawn by renowned playing card artist Oban Jones.
The back design is a celebration of the 1893 World's Fair. A 600-acre spectacle that commemorated the 400th anniversary of Columbus' arrival to the new world.

The Pioneers deck looks like they've been plucked out of that gift shop in 1893, locked in a vault for over a century, and placed gently, into your awaiting hands.

Hidden in the design are 52 easily-readable markings, to use for either magic, mischief, or both. 

Pioneers are a celebration of exploration, scientific discovery, and innocent curiosity from a bygone era.

Nice cards

I got the bakers dozen, just figured I would try something different from the normal rotation of decks I burn through. And I was pleasantly surprised. I am normally a USPCC person, in particular Tallys, Bee, and some elites. However these preform as well or better. The marking system is not the easiest to read but I think I will use these as normal decks and consider the. Marks a bonus. I would also prefer a standard double backer, to a bi-color one. In any event these have got me back to cycling ellusionist cards into my rotation. Give them a shot

Outstanding!

Everything you love about E7 card stock, and more. The backing is unique and beautiful. The faces have an old school look that will make people ask, "Where did you get these?". If you're looking for a unique deck, buy these now.

Pioneers - A Great Deck

The Pioneers are a great deck of cards. They feel great and faro perfectly right out of the box. The marking system is diabolically simple. Highly recommended.

Love collecting these

As the title says. I don't do Cardistry and I don't do tricks. I'm just blown away by the art and have always been fond of playing cards.
Been collecting ellusionist decks since 2010 and have never been let down by them. 100% recommended
