I agree the Phoenix does look interesting but again to the lay audience who are already suspicious Bikes seem to work best.
Even Tally Ho - which handle very well for me - tend to get the old "Is that a trick deck?" question more often than Bicycles.
I tried the Masters edition decks but even the small change of the Ace of Spades and the box art raised some suspicion.
Lately I have been using the Gold Seal decks:
They are great - Bicycle backs on Bee stock.
I put them in a box with the regular seal. I don't know if any one would notice but.........
If I had my way many of the old decks from years gone by would be available. Any one remember the Aristocrat Deck from years ago. That was both a very beautiful back design and handled like a charm.
