Unique's ASCEND has its roots in the XIX century, inspired by many artistic movements like art nouveau and Impressionism that arose during that time, with a few brushstrokes and references to the steampunk subgenre based on that period and a modern minimalistic flat approach that ties up every style into one coherent intricately designed deck of fully customized playing cards.

At the heart of the design lies a rich, unique black background that envelops the cards like a velvety sky at night. This specific black tone was selected exclusively to exude the allure of the 19th century. It's the black of top hats and ballroom gowns, of cobblestone streets and gas lit alleys. It captures the essence of an era marked by romanticism and the birth of modern creativity.

The golden patterns adorning the back of each card are a true homage to XIX architecture. Delicate filigree intertwines with graceful flourishes, forming a tapestry of timeless elegance.

From the pips to the tuck box, this deck shows an astonishing amount of detail filled with references both to the magic and card community.

General Features:
  • Fully personalized faces, back, and box by Tony Aranda.
  • 52 cards + 2 Jokers + 2 ad cards.
  • Metallic inks for the cards.
  • High-detail foil technique for the tuck case.
  • Tuck case crafted with matt paper and with inner printing.

Featuring TCC's exclusive M23 Finish for the smoothest handling, this brand-new finish was introduced just this year and has shown exceptional performance in our extensive testing. It ensures that the cards provide you with a professional-level smoothness and handling experience, showcasing the utmost quality.


A stacked deck of cards is a prearranged order of cards, carefully organized to give the appearance of randomness and shuffling when observed.

The Mnemonica Stack is a specific card order created by the renowned magician Juan Tamariz. It is an order that magicians memorize, allowing them to know the precise location of every card in the deck at any given moment. Juan Tamariz, a celebrated magician with a wealth of tricks and teachings, is credited with its creation.

If you have a background in magic, you are likely familiar with "memorized deck magic", where magicians use decks with predetermined card sequences. Among these, Mnemonica is the most widely recognized and popular stack within the magic community.
