Place marker trait using decks

It would be very useful if the place marker trait could also select a deck as a source for the marker. Several games now use a draw random chits for damage/effects mechanic this would work with.

The replace with other trait might also benefit (and I suspect the two are closely tied)

You can already do this with existing traits. use following for yours

Trigger
GKC (1 piece deck)
Send To Location (use location counter specified by properties)

Yes I do this with the module I’m working on. But I also use rotations and placing the marker directly under a specific unit in a stack. It requires several trigger keystrokes that the place marker trait already has built in as well as marking flags so that the GKC doesn’t move already placed markers.

The place marker trait would just be a cleaner way to do it.
