    Default 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.
