A stack refers to a deck of cards in a distinct order so one can execute a magic impact.

Example Tricks
An instance of an easy card magic trick that starts with a stack is "The Count." A spectator freely selects a card which is lost in the deck. At this point, the spectator can freely cut the face-up deck. At some point, the spectator stops cutting and the quantity represented by the card (ace through ten, jack - 11, queen - 12, king - 13), is counted from the top of the deck. To the spectator's amazement, his card is positioned at that location.

With the cards in a particular order, this enables spectators to continually reduce the card and at some point find the volunteer's freely chosen card. Many tricks rely on stacking the deck, either partially or much more. In the case of "The Count," it really is a quarter of the deck.

One simple trick that referred to as "Extraordinary Spelling" is a packet impact where all of the cards are stacked. Here, you spell the name of the card and deal cards from the best of a packet down to the bottom. This impact is quite diverse as it's far much more of a stunt than a magic trick. Moreover, and interestingly, the stack at the starting of the trick is in a certain order, but it seems to be random. But this seemingly random order allows for the trick to happen.

One more trick, How to Deal a Royal Flush, relies on a stack of five cards and it is the process of dealing and apparently mixing the cards that causes the deck to ultimately end up in the order so a royal flush  ten, jack, queen, king and ace of a suit  gets dealt to you, the magician. In this effect, you shuffle a deck and then deal 5 hands, which each do
