3 games in a row against highlander mage where I don’t draw either albatross within the first 25 cards.

This stuff DOES NOT HAPPEN on tabletop. It happens in this garbage can of a game all the time. It’s why I know for a fact that whatever shuffler is being used is not legitimate. Other examples are when you have card generation with massive, massive card pools giving you the same thing multiple times in a row. I had Alex give me Emeriss and that dragon that deals 1 to everything four times in a row, and in the same order in my hand. I have zero doubts that the so-called shuffle is equally terrible.

You would never, ever play three games of Magic in a row where all four of your 4-ofs were in the last ten cards all three times. This is one of the many reasons Hearthstone is not and never will be skill-based. It plays more like a European board game where all the players play against the game itself instead of each other.

4 "4 ofs" in the bottom 10 of a 60 card deck is less likely to occur than 2 "2ofs" in the bottom 5 of a 30 card deck.

2/87 chance to get bottom 5'd on your 2ofs. 2.3%

5040 / 11703240 or 14 / 32509 chance to get bottom 10'd on your 4ofs. 0.04%

Edit: So the hearthstone version is 53.38 more likely to occur.

I think it helps to understands the math involved before getting upset about bad beats in a game that is going to have more variation by design.

Hearthstone could, and frankly should, be better than Magic. The RNG philosophy gets in the way.

I think all my wins are Murlocs except for the last one where I went full demon and it was glorious I even got a golden Brann Battlemaster without even really intending to
I live on, THROUGH THIS SEASHELL!

A very, very fun deck I’ve been playing. The only match that’s a chore is that quest rez s***.

Run a couple minions that create garbage minions for your opponent? I love screwing up their rez pool and they spend 9 mana to revive three 1drops.

The main reason for the birds is screwing up highlander decks. Against quest rez priest it's not as good because eventually they just finish the quest and have a ton more minions to buff. Against that deck it's literally just "kill everything and win in fatigue".

Even if you guaranteed me the exact same rng outcomes, the animations on my computer wouldn't allow me to pull that off.
When someone is giving you his opinion, you should receive it with deep gratitude even though it is worthless.
Huh? Finger!? What the hell?
