Could you tell me if it is correct and natural to ask the card of what bank do you use when you want to know the name of one's bank? If it doesn't, would it be more natural to ask what bank is your card with?

    The term is bank card. "Which or what bank card do you use?"

Definitely not natural.

It's difficult to think of any situation where you would want to phrase any question like this: the X of which/what Y do you use? That kind of inversion is probably grammatical, but it's quite unusual.

Much more typical would be: Which Y's X do you use. As in, which bank's card do you use?

But that's not the way we would ask this particular question.

If you want to know which bank a person uses, you'd just ask about the bank, not the card, e.g. Which bank do you use? or Where do you bank?

If you want to know about the bank associated with the card, you could ask, Which bank issued your card?
