Zanz has made an attempt to decrease the delay when loading the builder/bazaar. Hopefully this helps, but I'm not sure if it will be quite good enough. So how about an option to go from card images to a simple text list. It would probably make the most sense to toggle it if you are using low quality. A deck would look like this:

Long Sword x 1
Earth Tower x 17
Elite Graboid x 6
Elite Shrieker x 6

And the cards not in your deck would be listed in the same way.

You could probably add one of those little "pop up" things like when you're going to sell a rare card to let players know they are in this view mode because the quality is on low. That would stop a lot of confusion.

I'm sorry for the necropost, but i really think this is a nice suggestion.
Even without adding a text list, grouping cards would make the deck builder much less heavy on graphics.
And often i find myself counting cards in my deck (mostly pillars).

I also think it's really easy to implement, since this function already exists in "Your Cards" section (bottom of the screen).

I made a screenshot, just to be more clear about it.

I agree with this a ton, If you have a large deck 45+ cards, the loading the "your deck" deck screen takes forever. bazaar on the other hand is pretty fast most of the time.

Deck building screen takes a long time to load all my cards, and lag increases as i progress into the game and gain more cards. I totally support both of these ideas

I'd consider also making the decks outside the game, and then import the code.
In the deckbuilding GUI you have to wait 1sec everytime you add a card.
