Any system could work, though you need to put in the work.
Dominic system is great for memorizing cards. Why wouldn't it be?

Whether you use the Dominic System, or the Major System, or the Category System, or just arbitrarily assign images to each of the 52 cards is not really what enables people to be world-class in speed of remembering cards. Once those images are learned well, you'll forget all about whatever system you used to come up with the images. You'll simply see a Jack of Diamonds as Michael Jackson, for example.

There's a lot of discussion of whether a 2-card system is better than a 1-card system for speed, and there's a good bit of evidence that it is IF you spend the time to develop and learn those images sufficiently well. And then there are discussions about whether using a memory palace vs. linking (or story method) is better, but most athletes use the memory palace, with some variations on how to place your images on the loci.

But what will make you really fast is simply dedication to learning the card assignments so that you make that translation almost instantly, and then practicing as much as you can, and forcing yourself to go faster than you are comfortable with. Some people use metronomes to help with this. Read "Moonwalking with Einstein". Josh Foer talks about this a good bit.
