We proudly present to you the second installment of the Mirz Playing Cards, a partnership with Hope for Justice. When you support this project, you are also raising your voice to those who don't have a voice. After kickstarter, all proceeds will go to fight human trafficking.
This edition will be printed with The United States Playing Card Company. The faces will be USPC standard, but will have pixilated Queens faces, custom Jokers, and two custom ad cards.
Like our first edition, these cards will be traditionally cut and made of crushed stock to the thinnest caliber range for the smoothest handling for magicians and cardists alike. The deck will also have an air-cushioned finish.
The pattern on the card back is the logo of our partnership with Hope For Justice, a non-profit that is dedicated to ending human trafficking. The custom Joker also features a dove. Dove releases have been around for thousands of years and many different cultures see a dove release as symbol of peace, love, innocence and freedom.
We brought back the same designer from the first edition deck, Aaron Dickey. We went back and forth on every little detail, and wanted the best possible product to put into this world. The tuck box is matte black with a dark red foil. Nothing is printed on the box, just the foil. The front has the unlocked lock and the back has the Hope For Justice dove logo. Whenever Hope For Justice saves someone out of human trafficking, they put an unlocked lock on their wall.
The SLOT Series is inspired by the original Slot Machine symbols. We decided a casino-style design would be the perfect representation of a theme like this! Each symbol is given a fictitious casino name of its own. The first gambling Slot Machine was the Liberty Bell by Charles Fey, in 1887. In honor of that, our hero Deck is the Liberty Bell Casino Deck. For this project, we are also focusing on the four-leaf Clover symbol (Wicked Leprechaun Casino Deck) and the #7 symbol (Lucky 7 Casino Deck). Each design emanates class and sophistication for any game night!

The Mystique Deck:
Sovereign is a homage to some of the most well-known Kings and Queens of the greatest European empires of all times. Sovereign reimagines the courts of a standard deck with illustrations that are gorgeous and colorful, with intricate details.
Sovereign, a person who has supreme power or authority...
This campaign is my attempt to represent Sovereign, which is defined as:
Having supreme rank, power, or authority - supreme; preeminent; indisputable - greatest in degree; utmost or extreme - being above all others in character, importance, excellence.
Each one of the historical kings and queens depicted in this deck are a shadow of what true sovereignty is meant to be. Each one was flawed like us all, but were seen as divinely anointed. The kings and queens were honored as divinity its self. Birth right and elevation, great responsibility and power.
