If you’ve been around for 2 years, 6 months, or just 2 days you probably know this already:
We do EVERYTHING we can to get the best, most exclusive offers in magic from the best artists producing magic today.
One of those artists is Christian Grace!
“If you don’t know about Christian Grace, he’s one of the ONLY magicians that I would buy from without even second guessing. He’s created hit after hit and has some of the highest standards for his work I’ve ever seen. His consistency and drive to only produce the best magic is something we could learn from as performers. When people show up to watch us perform, they should know they’re ONLY going to be getting the best.”
– Danny Goldsmith, (aka the world’s best coin magician)
Christian is already a legend in magic, and the legacy he’s leaving behind is insane!
I’m serious, when it comes to the holy grail of card effects, there are a lot of contenders.
(and we’d love to hear your opinions!)
We are huge fans of the classic ‘Any Card at Any Number’ (ACAAN) trick, but Christian Grace’s ‘Switch One’ could be a strong contender for our new favorite. It seems like he has a sixth sense for creating truly exceptional magic.
One of my favourite projects of his, was released on Ellusionist, and is known as Any Card to Pocket!
Here’s what it looks like…
A spectator takes the deck and counts out 10 cards. They think of any one of these cards. Upon recounting, they find only 9 cards left — their thought-of card is gone. To their amazement, you reveal it’s been in your pocket all along.
This trick is so powerful, so hands off, so startling, that if you wanted to blow someone away, you could just do this one effect!
Aside from his projects, he has a platform called MAGIC MONTHLY, which we will be reviewing for the remainder of the article!
Our main thoughts,
- 2 effects
- Nothing fancy
- No community
- Not great UI
- But VERY good effects
“Each month I’ll be sharing TWO great effects with you. One during the first half of the month and the other towards the end. That way learning in-depth strong card magic has never been easier to digest. There are currently Over 60 Tutorials in the membership.”
What Magic Monthly looks like…
Here’s what will happen if you decide to join Christian Grace’s magic monthly…
1: Checkout – £12.99. Weird that it transitions from pounds to dollars. He’s also collecting sales tax/vat noticed. I didn’t realise at first because of the currency conversion. So more like £15 a month ($19)!
2: Product delivery. Got a receipt via email but not like an onboarding email or anything. Immediately drops you into the members area post purchase. Very low tech. Literally just 60 items in a list!
Literally just 60 items in a list
Most stuff has performance videos!
Hard to tell how many other members are in the members area.
It’s not very easy to know where to start. No guide of like – start here, move to here, this trick then this trick, this trick is X difficulty level, etc. can’t tell if the list is chronological or just random!
3: The content. Really cool how most of the effects have performance videos to get you hyped before you learn them. And they’re shot on a nice feel camera! The studio he films in is nice but not like insanely high budget…
BUT THE EFFECTS ARE VERY GOOD!
Here’s what a magician in The Magicians Forum had to say about it:
“I recently subscribed and I am blown away by what he has put on there. What is everyone’s favourite effect on there? Mine is fate or divide and divine.”
(there’s a lot of really positive testimonials on the sales page. People are generally really, really happy with what they are getting)!
After signing up, you don’t have any onboarding/follow up emails!
Overall, I’d highly recommend Magic Monthly if you’re looking to learn and perform really good card tricks!
However, if you’re looking for more of a magic club than I recommend you check out Magic Mastery, which is way more community oriented.
Finally, if you’re looking for the best, most exclusive offers in magic…
