    Not exactly sure what you are asking here. Do you mean as a player, can you ask for a deck check to be made on your opponent? Unless you had a good reason to have it done (ie you know their list and think he added/switched cards), I'd say know. I'd also wonder how you knew their list also.

    Now, say you perform a 6 pile shuffle at start of match vs just a cut (which is allowed) and the piles dont end up with 6 10 card piles.....then immediately call a judge over to verify a problem with the deck. At that stage, their list will probably be pulled to see what is missing or added.

    just randomly, out of the blue calling for a judge and saying 'i want their deck checked to make sure it matches their list'?

    You'd need to have a reason.
    Consider that a deck check is going to be disruptive not only to your game, but also possibly to the entire event.
    So you can't just ask for one at random.

    What would actually trigger a deck check other than the random checks?

    I can't see many opponents being able to tell if a deck differs from the correct size when they are offered a cut/shuffle. Marked or damaged cards/sleeves get replaced whilst a game is underway. I guess you can ask for a count of the opponents cards if they didn't pile shuffle at the start. But there doesn't appear to be any obvious justification for asking for a mid game deck check.

    I have had some games where the size of the deck didn't feel right to me when I was doing a cut.
    But that would only require a deck count, not a complete deck check.

    I heard some people can feel out 60 cards, one example is Ness.

    The best I've done is detect a deck that was three cards off.

    Just curious.. what's the penalty for a player who midgame finds that they have less than 60 cards in their deck?

    Yeah, people that do stuff for a long time can do this. Ted Williams (baseball) could pick a bat out of 4 that was .05 oz. heavier than the others.
