Solid Deception is an effect by Paul Harris first described in his book Paul Harris Reveals Some of His Most Intimate Secrets (1976) then marketed as product in 1980 starting the Solid Deck craze.
It has since been published in:
- Tannen's Magic Manuscript Magazine Sept/Oct 1984 with commentary by Jay Sankey.
- Art of Astonishment, Vol. 1 (1996)
- Omni Deck by Danny Korem in Korem without Limits (1985), inspired by an idea by Jerry Andrus.
- Simon Lovell's Holey Deck - not solid, but uses the same principles. Deck ends up with a hole in middle of every card. (Not be confused with Holey Deck by Randy Tanner in Apocalypse, Vol. 8, No. 6, June 1985.)
- Lightning Bold by Jay Sankey in Sankey Unleashed (2004) - ends up with a two-inch bolt running through the center of the deck.
- Hammered Deception by Jay Sankey in Extremely Ambitious (2008) - as a closer to Ambitious Card Routine. Solid deck has several two-inch nails running through various spots.
- Petrified in Ah – Ha! by David Harkey & Eric Anderson.
- Laser Aces by Joel Givens in Session (2007)
