Instanto Deck is a Mechanical Deck created by Billy O'Connor which allows you to cut to at any card called for. It was marketed around 1919.

The deck was explained in the Walter Gibson's The World's Best Book of Magic (1927) and then again in Jinx.[1] It was also explained in Linking Ring January 1953, page 63 as "DUCKY DECK" by J. Russell Duck (many of the paragraphs were word for word from the Jinx article).
