About the trick

All masters know the feeling. Golfers hitting a perfect stroke, artists finding the precise color balance, writers penning sentences that sound like music. These moments of such profound acute excellence are the moments that define our mastery—the moments that prove that the practice has paid off.

Nowhere will you experience this feeling better than a flawless execution of Sylar by Simon Black.

Imagine out-jogging a card from a tabled spread, and after turning the pack face down, the card has been switched. It is a move so clean, you have to see it to believe it. Fair warning: this isn’t a move for the feint of heart. The knack is one of the trickiest we’ve seen and as such, Sylar demands hours of practice. We’ll tell you this now though: it’s worth it. Perhaps one of the most devious switches to date, Sylar is not only a treat for the move-monkeys, but a deadly weapon for the devoted.

More from Simon Black

Simon Black is a young magician and sleight of hand artist from downtown Chicago, IL. Hailing from the birthplace of intimate close-up magic, Simon's unique style combines his love of dexterous playing card techniques with his passion for performance art, resulting in a display that is attractive, deceptive, and entertaining to lay people and magicians alike, but for very different reasons. Simon possesses an incredibly intense origin story, as he was hit by a car and broke his femur when he was fourteen years old. Bedridden for over two months, he used almost all of his time to practice the art of magic. As a result, he progressed extraordinarily rapidly, and continues to uphold his zealous practice regimen to this day.
