Need graphics tool to create card game

Here's a tech challenge for you...

I need to create a 54 card deck, two sided. That means I need to lay out all 54 cards thusly...

Front:
1,7,13
2,8,14
3,9,15
4,10,16
5,11,17
6,12,18

Back:
13,7,1
14,8,2
15,9,3
16,10,4
17,11,5
18,12,6

This is how I make the first two sided 18 cards, and have four more PDF's to make the remainder of the 54 cards.



THE PROBLEM is when I need to create sample decks to play through and verify the sequence and content is ideal. What a pain it is to insert a new card at the top of the deck! The whole thing needs to be redone!

Is there a graphic tool that can help me? I would seriously lay down some cash (maybe $100 ;) if it could solve this problem for me.

I have Adobe Acrobat Pro, but nothing else

I wold love a drag and drop interface that lets me re-order the cards, then assigns a unique number 1-54 based on the card's location in the list of 54.

So, wat I mean is that I could contract 54 card faces X 2 == 108, then have them generate the 6 PDF's that have 18 cards on each.

Thanks

That's what QuarkExpress and Adobe InDesign do.
