Customizing Spell Deck Names?

After playing for a while, you start to accumulate a lot of spells from many different schools. It would be great if we could "name" our spell decks and keep them equipped with the spells we want. For example, I could have a deck named "Fire and Ice" and keep it stocked with fire and ice spells, another stocked with Storm/Myth spells, etc. Then, when entering a battle, I could only change my wand and deck and be ready to go.

I would like to see this too! I keep various lower level decks for specific fights but right now I have four decks with the same name and it takes up time to adjust my deck for certain encounters.

cool idea, i have three decks, only life, only balance, and both. Its confusing to go to battle and you have the deck that you didn't want to use because you equipped the wrong one

I personally only use one deck, since I prefer swapping key cards than dealing with multiple decks. But I think it would be a good idea, since nobody but the player ever actually sees their deck's name anyway. All that the "Look At" feature shows is basic details, not its actual name.

Great idea. I would also like a hot key that would allow you to cycle between them, so you don't have to open your Spell book each time you enter a new area or face a new type of monster.

We'll look into it!

This would be an amazing addition. I would especially like buttons right on the user interface, kind of like the potions. Or perhaps a small menu that pops up when you enter battle asking which deck you would like to use.

This is exactly what I came on the forums to look for. I was hoping that a hot key already existed. It would be nice to have a deck/wand combination. Or to go even further, full sets of clothing, wand, deck, ring, amulet, to switch between by pressing CTRL-1, CTRL-2, CTRL-3, etc.

If I wanted to play my "Defense Deck" against an opponent, I could hit CTRL-1 and I would automatically equip the hat, cloak, shoes, ring, & amulet that enhance my defensive statistics along with the wand & deck that contain my defensive cards. Then when I want to play my "Ice Deck", all the clothes, deck, and wand would be equipped that enhanced my Ice abillities.

Of course there would be to be a separate screen to do this but you guys seem really adept and creating great and simple UIs so I'm sure it would be user-friendly.

Anyway, just wanted to "second" this suggestion.
