Prioritize new cards from certain subdecks while learning overall the same number of cards daily

My current setup is that I have a daily review deck with three subdecks.
1. Work (Works I encounter at work)
2. Pleasure (Works I encounter when reading for pleasure)
3. Generic Vocab Deck (Premade 10k deck)

I want to learn 15 new cards per day, but I want to prioritize learning card first from my work deck, then from my pleasure deck, and then lastly my generic vocab deck. Is there a way to do this currently with Anki?

I primarily use the Anki client, but also use the Anki mobile app on the bus in the morning.

    You can nest all three decks into a single parent, then set a limit of 15 on the parent deck - new cards will be pulled from each deck in order, up to the limit.

    Alright, so will I need to rename the decks so that they end up in Alphabetical order by the order I want them to pull? Such as:
    "1 Work"
    "2 Fun"
    "3 10k"

    If that'll work, then that's perfect

    I'd recommend adding a 0 at the start so that decks over 10 sort properly in the future, eg Parent::01 Work, Parent::02 Fun.
