You ignite a piece of paper with a lighter and suddenly the card on the top of the deck sports a large "X" across its back. When you spread the cards, you show that all of the cards are now facing the same direction and every card has an "X" on its back. The only card that lies face up is the spectator's signed card. But Miller isn't done yet.
You pull out the signed card and turn it over. It's the only card in the deck with a blue back.
Marking the "X"
In a sense, the plot is similar to a "Chicago Surprise" style effect where a spectator's card can be shown to be a different backed card. But Miller's deck change adds an entire new dimension.
The DVD comes with gimmicks to make your deck which you'll have to dedicate to the effect. You can reuse these gimmicks and there's nothing that's used up. By the way, if you don't want to use flash paper, Miller explains a different handling.
This is another winner from Justin Miller.
