True ...but you may be able to set the cards to trigger a Set Global
Property trait when they are drawn. Create a Global Property called
something like Deck1CardCount and set the GP to $deck1_numPieces$
whenever a card is drawn. Then have your text label display

If the card is being drawn to a different map than the map containing
deck1, create an invisible At-Start stack piece on Map 1 to control the
SGP. Then have the card send a Global Key Command to the At-Start stack
piece to trigger the SGP.
