comment Recommendations for a wife who likes dominion
For recommendations, try posting to the boardgames subreddit or a forum at Board Game Geek. You'll get much better help if you can identify what game elements she likes and doesn't. You said not too strategic, maybe with a good bit of chance, which is a good start. We can, e.g., rule out most worker placement games. But what doesn't she like about Carcassonne? If you can identify that, you'll get much better help.

comment Is Mana Weaving ok if it's followed by a thorough shuffle?
@BrianS Didn't go back to the paper, but recalling a Diaconis lecture I attended, this assumes a near-perfect but not-quite-perfect riffle shuffle. With a 52-card deck, as Diaconis demonstrated, 7 perfect riffle shuffles will exactly reset the deck. Small deviations from perfect shuffles, however, will propagate through the deck in unpredictable ways--which is what you want.
