property is not an interger?

I'm not sure why you are getting the error, but there is a certain 
amount of redundancy in your script. Improving it might get rid of the 
error. I suggest this, where you setup the loop to delete the cards you 
want, instead of requiring a test for every card:

on tryAgain
   repeat with i = the number of cards down to 2
     delete card i
   end repeat
end tryAgain

In your script, i is already the number of the card, so your "if" line 
is effectively saying "if the number of card 1 is greater than 1 then". 
If you wanted to do it that way, you could just use "if i > 1 then"

One other possible cause for the error could be if you are deleting the 
card containing the running script. When you use "delete card" it 
deletes the current card, you are not going to a particular card or 
specifying a particular card for deletion.
