I saw this at T11, so I thought I would ask it here.

Me personally: I put aside decks that loose their finish, or just don't feel right anymore to rip/sign/burn. So 1 Deck a month.

1-2. Depends on how much I perform/practice, which admittedly isn't a whole lot.

I work on 2 decks at a time, but it works out like 1 deck a month - - I think it's the XCM-ers that go through a lot of decks

When I was actively practising flourishing I went through around 5-6 decks a month. Know that I rarely focus on card magic. Maybe 1-2

i find if i practice flourishes and XCM i end up using the same deck for hours and usually it can go from brand new to horrible in about 4 hours. But i find that a deck can last me quiet a while if im just doing regular card magic and not cutting and springing like a crazy man. My cards also sit in a card guard which does dramatically increase their life span. So on average id say i go through about 4 a month.

I said 5 but that's because cards don't fare well in bars, retaurants and weddings.

Once I started flourishing, I started ripping through like 5 decks a month, but I've learned to extend their life, so now, I only go through one a month.

A while ago, I had a red bicycle deck that lasted for a year. It was so long. But now I go through one every month. I've increased practicing.

Seriously i go through 2-3 decks a week, no joke.
I guess it's because i play with them so much. I'm amazed that most of you go through 1 deck a month!!! :shock:

I JUST bought some new custom decks. Hopefully I won't ruin those too quickly. 8)

I've had 8 decks of cards for about half a year, and they still work fine.
