You may be able to handle this well in just one place:

If your mainstack has only one card, or if you know it will always open to
the first card, you could just move your mainstack's openstack handler to
the card of your mainstack.

Another option would be to add a condition to you mainstack's openstack

  on openstack
    if (the short name of this stack is "mainstackName") then
      -- do your stuff here
    else pass openstack
  end openStack
