I thought the execution of the card technique was good, but that is not much of a trick. Showing the new deck order at the start screams to look for false cuts and shuffles unless that is your intent, then you might as well name each technique (up the river cut, Erdnase fancy blind triple cut, etc)as a demonstration to other magicians. It would be more magical to just reveal the new deck order after all the shuffles and cuts. Look at work by Richard Turner and Ricky Jay for example.

The slow in-the-hands display before and after also seems uneccessary, the table spread can get the point across. I would have liked to have seen tabled riffle shuffle technique to compliment the tabled false cuts. Thank you for sharing.

Nice. Very convincing cuts and shuffle.
