Rainbow Deck is the name given to a deck that are made up with cards with different back designs.

In Senator Clarke Crandall's lecture notes, Entertaining with Magic (1952), he states that he discovered a deck at Woolworth's department store called a "Collector's Deck", which was made up of 52 different backs. He created a simple routine with it, preformed it at his bar and starting selling them to magicians.

Others who have developed routines for this deck have been Mel Stover, Karl Fulves, Scotty York, Daryl, Derek Dingle and Nick Trost.
