When you put a piece on a deck, it gets sucked into the deck. Vassal
renders the appearance of the deck by the top piece in the deck. If you
put a poker chip on a deck of cards, you will see a deck of poker chips.
The rest of the deck is cards, but vassal will render them as poker
chips. If you think about it, how would vassal know if what you put on a
deck belongs there or not? How is it supposed to know that poker chip
should not be in that deck? It means you can't put pieces "on top" of a
deck because they will fall into the deck. You will need to either put
the piece next to the deck or not use a deck and perhaps use a stack
