"If statement" in butler actions?


I have two lists in one board.  One for (A)"production requests" and one for (B)"produced items."  I have an automation setup so that when a card is copied into B from any other board it looks for a card with the same name in A and archives it.  This is working perfectly, but there is one complication causing it to email me errors.  The cards copied into B may not have a match in A, which isn't a problem, but it still emails me that the automation has failed.  Is there any way to make the error stop?  I'm thinking of conditional logic like "IF there is a card in A with {cardnmame}, then archive it."  Is this possible to create?  Thanks!

@John Schurman there are no if statements in New Butler like there were in Butler Bot, but this BenkoBot function would do the same thing:

There are other example cards on that board too.

Thank you!  I'll look into BenkoBot right now.... it looks like it can serve more than just this function for me.
