With Descent 2, it is not that often I reach the end of the OL deck even once, let alone cycling the Deck over (and over).

Is that the average experience for OLs?

I miss OL Powers.

Generally, unless the players are VERY unlucky or make some very bad decisions you will be hard pressed to cycle through the deck. There are some cards that make it slightly more likely, but generally I expect to only get one use out of each card.

Then again, there are occasional rounds where I have 12-14 of my 15 cards in hand and from then on I basically have all of them at hand all the time and it gets very frustrating and annoying for the players until the game is done.

"Death on Wings" and "Fat Goblin" are the only quests that I have seen that happen so far though.

I often get to the end of the deck and shuffle it.
But I play with Zachareth plot deck, so it's not surprisingly.
By the way, do you discard excessive cards before the quest?

generally I play with 15, occasionally more. I have the Zacareth Plot deck, but couldn't afford to spend the threat (and consequent re-rolls) to reduce 2 cards.

I also do not use this reduction tool, but I use the card that allows to draw 2 cards in the end of the turn, so it dramatically increases the speed of deck cycling

I don't recall this card. Is it 2 cards EVERY turn? Or just once?
