Playing cards are fine as are your DVD's. Put them in your suitcase rather than a shipping container if you want to be sure though.

I hope you know that magicians are not very well received in the middle east. They are regarded as evil and people swear that the evil eye destroys them. See, your eyes would be considered evil and will emit evilness. So will your hands, doing all its magic crap. They will hunt you down, sword in hand, balaclava on head, in their little ninga black suits and drag through town, for shame. They'll place you in chop chop square, until your head is of smithereens. I wouldnt risk it, buddy - YOU WILL NOT COME OUT ALIVE! Didn't you know they have swords under those white dish dashas?

:D

This is so funny!!! If I were you though, on a serious note, I would call yourself an 'illusionslist' as that is seemingly perfectly acceptable as the trick is an illusion and not magic.... Failing that, get fit and bring your runners as they will hunt you down bustle you to chop chop square and everything else Arabian nights said.... Good luck
