    at the bottom of the pile

    Hello!

    Is this sentence correct, please?


    "If you don't like the card you've drawn, just put it back at the bottom of the pile".

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Itīs fine.
    Instead of "put it back," you could say "replace it."

    If it's a playing card, use pack or deck rather than pile.
