i think ill wait untill they come out with the new one(if they are?) because i only use Bike Decks and it would be weird if i do all of these tricks with Bike decks and then do a trick with a cheap one.
It actually makes perfect sense to switch to a cheapo deck for an effect that involves ruining the deck by marking it up. You could even say something to that effect--e.g., "Well, I'm gonna need to write on some cards here; time to break out the cheap deck. Bikes don't grow on trees."
Or then again, you could just avoid playing cards altogether. I use my Xpert all the time these days, but I seldom use playing cards. There's plenty of other stuff to work with.
