How many magicians have you viewed?
whilst i may concur that none were entertaining, none of them utilized a Svengali deck
i will say that through the advancements of technology, magic is viewed more archaic, and many times not given it's proper R.E.S.P.E.C.T. likewise with urge many people have to 'expose' how a trick is allegedly done, again that is why you see less and less of the Superstar conjurors shy away from Television, and what is filtered to the top may be the less than stellar performers

Sure there are other techniques for a regular deck (I know some, but I'm no expert on close up magic...though it is fascinating), but in each trick on the show, these were the MAGICIAN'S decks...not a borrowed one, so a Svengali deck seems to be the best GUARANTEE of getting the right card...that's all.
