So I was wondering what you guys do to condition cards for card manipulation. I came back to magic a month ago, and finally wore out my very old deck to the point where I had to get a new one. However, I forgot what McBride and Sheridan said about conditioning a new pack of cards. Currently I settled for rolling cards in vertical and horizontal directions on the edge of a table, then powdering the deck. However, although this kind of does the job, the cards are still not as pliable as my old deck of cards, so I'm hoping for insight in these forums.
