Ok so this is fucking beautiful, but I have a few issues, just from what I've done in 5 minutes.

1) Shift - Tab adds a new row instead of just going back to the previous box. Did you make tab a shortcut or are you not handling this at all?

2) The 'Validate' feature just isn't intuitive. It would make more sense to just run it automagically whenever the cursor moves out of the card name box. I like it, but it isn't explained and will be frustrating for a lot of people.

3) Window resizing. Your card images don't resize, and at some point in horizontal sizing it pushes the entire right column to the bottom. This should probably never happen, as it makes it nigh unusable. I had the damdest time trying to figure out why the preview of the card was at the bottom of the screen, until I resized my window and saw what was going on.

4) Wasted space. Deck name should align with the top of the left nav, which should be
moved up a little. There's a lot of space on the upper right, beneath the search bar, that isn't used.

Hope this help! It's a beautiful application and you have great aesthetic sensibilities, can't wait to see your progress. Really good stuff.

To resize the card images, set the width for image id "Card Image" to 100%. Here it is: <img id="CardImage" style="border: 6px solid black;" width="100%" src="img/cards/misc/card_back.jpg"> Then you'll need to set the max_width in the css so that image doesn't get gigantic when the right column moves to the bottom of the screen.

You're forgetting something: people multitask. Resizing isn't supported because of hardware, it's supported because you can't expect a user to have a window the size of their display at every point in time. You also want to optimize for mobile (which shouldn't be a huge deal in your case, your theme is already doing that work for you).

That being said, the way the card image functions is fine. Moving it to another location is a good idea tho, I'll tinker and let you know what I come up with.
