I was very excited when i bought these cards, however i was disappointed upon opening the box. The cards are made out of a slightly thicker stock which normally would be great, but the entire deck was not cut properly. The cards had very rough edges and some had extra paper along what should be a perfectly smooth deck edge. This is not hugely noticeable, but as a magician for 9 years, it is proving to make lifts and other handlings more difficult.

i was also a bit disappointed at the resolution of the images on the back. i really expected a crystal clear guardian backing to these cards, but it is a disappointing quality since the artwork from which it came was much better quality.

not bad cards, but i had higher expectations.

cards arrived extremely quickly which i was very pleased about.

I really dig this deck, it's a perfect compromise between the classic look of bicycle cards, and the edgy dark look that modern magicians prefer. The artwork is great on the backs, as well as the ace of spade and joker cards. The royals are pretty much the same as a normal deck, but they've dropped the yellow color, which despite being a small change, gives the cards a dark feel that echoes the rest of the deck.

The handling is wonderful right out the box, fans and spreads are effortless with this deck, the only thing holding it back in this category is the rough cut edges, though I suspect that they might smooth out with use.

This deck will definitely find it's way into my performances, and keeping in mind that this is a performance deck, not a practice deck, I should say it will last for some time.

These cards look cool, it's true. But for card tricks and flourishes they really miss the mark. The cards are a bit thicker than ordinary Rider Backs. The edges are rough (making it difficult to do a standard waterfall shuffle, for example). If you buy these cards, I suggest buying one deck just to see how you like them before you invest your money in a bunch of these. From my perspective, Tally Ho's are the best cards for tricks and flourishes, and you can buy them for a lot less than what you'll pay for Guardians.

Very, very satisfied with this product. I'm a first time buyer from amazon and I was happy with this product. Awesome cards, very slick and smooth. amazing fan and spreads, nice shuffling, easy deal, perfect for magic tricks! I recommend these cards for anyone looking for a deck of cards that they want to pull out to impress a few friends with. I DO NOT recommend these cards for someone looking for a deck of cards that has every face card redesigned around guardian. but however the color scheme has changed. The reds are darker, very nice touch. The ace is amazing, and I am personally a lover of the joker cards in any deck. The Jockers are centered around the min design. Please keep in mind that these cards are very nice and deserve to be taken care of! any set of cards can last 6 months with continuous use. if you want to practice shuffling with these cards, but two decks. Constant riffle shuffling and bridging will cause any deck to bend out of shape in weeks ( I'm well aware that a lot of people know this, I'm letting the rookies know)

While technically a deck made for magicians, this is a fine deck for the casual player.

The cards are sleek, and they fan like a dream, making it very easy to arrange one's cards. They shuffle nicely as well.

The graphics are beautiful, and the pips are easily read. The only drawback is that some people may find the cards a bit too slick for game-play.

Oh, and watch out for the stray cards--they like to hide in the box instead of sliding out. Cheeky critters!

My husband is a professional magician who likes to add new and unusual decks to his collection of playing cards. The Bicycle Guardians deck is a fantastic deck with beautiful graphics, made from good cardstock, and a nice feel to them. They have a good feel when he performs card tricks with them. Highly recommended for the poker player/magician/card enthusiast in your life.

I added these cards as an afterthought along with another order (ironically I had just placed an order direct from Theory11 (the Guardians' original designer) without a glance at these cards). In the future - these will be the front and center product.

The box is is dark and mysterious, and looks good. However, the dual English/French text and the advertising back (instead of an image of the back of the cards) is kind of ugly, though nearly all standard Bicycle-brand decks have advertising backs now.

The cards are gorgeous. The Guardian back is slightly reminiscent of the original, class Rider Back. However, these cards are edgy, dark and mysterious, while still being elegant. The Ace of Spades is breathtaking, and is quite possibly the most attractive Ace I've ever seen in a deck of cards, tying only with the Artifice Deck's Ace.

They perform great, at least out of the box. I suspect that they will wear/age either the same or slightly better (i.e. last longer) than plain Rider Back/Standard decks. They fan better than any deck in my collection except my Viper Tally-Ho (UV500 Air-Flow edition), and even then the Guardians give that deck, which is almost twice as expensive as this one, a run for its money.

Overall - the Guardians are fun to look at, easy to perform with, and are reasonably priced, making them a great choice for a performance deck.
