Haunted Deck (also known as "Self-cutting Cards") is a classic plot in card magic developed by Al Baker where a selected card placed back into the deck and usually held in the palm of the hand, eerily moves by itself back out of the deck.

In 1933 Louis Tannen was marketing it as the Haunted Pack.

Some Rising Cards effects were also marketed under the name "Haunted Pack".
