It looks very in depth at first glance. Private Mod Note :. Rollback Post to Revision RollBack. Archmage Overlord. Here's the thing, they've had a working shuffler on mtgo for a very long time, but for arena they create a new one and suddenly it has a bias that pushes lands drawn slightly closer to what it would be with an optimal average land count. From what I've heard anecdotally, best of 3 matches seem to be going on mostly as normal, while best of 1's have fewer non games where one player just gets mana screwed or flooded.
The data in your link seems to show best of 1's showing the observed effect more, so the anecdotes and data seem to be in alignment. I'm going to put on my tinfoil hat and turn on the X-Files theme, because I think this is intentional to make best of 1's more viable. The more often you just don't have a chance to play a match because you got mana screwed in one game, the less likely you are to continue with the format, especially for the newer, more casual, and less enfranchised players that best of 1's cater to.

Step 3: Do what those players do. Step 4: No more problem. Bonus: You are now better at Magic. Enjoy those extra wins! I have always been fervent in stating that I wanted to see proof of any rigging in shuffling before admitting it's there, that I'm not going to accept just anecdotal data and the rants of a salty YT crapposter.Unsanctioned is a set with cards with a silver border, that means they are not legal in official tournaments, concentrating the highest value of the set in full-art lands.
The lands are beautiful and will be available in Arena! There does not seem to be an option to acquire the set of land in gold, the in-game currency. Would you be willing to pay to have these incredible lands?
Cards Realm is trying to create the largest combo base in the history of Magic! Anyone can contribute to our goal by adding combos to the page.
I built many decks in this world of Magic, but even today, I am still discovering new combos that I haven't tested in my history as a player.
The Godzilla Lands
There are thousands of combos, some very difficult to understand and others less so. The search can be filtered only for revised combos. And, of course, you can order combos according to the number of cards, the date you entered etc On the page of the combo itself, you can already see an explanation of the combo, in what formats it is legal, suggestions for decks and you can even rate the combo!
By the grade, we will be able to see only the best combos. Does the proposal sound good? We are constantly listening to suggestions for the page and for Cards Realm itself!

A Turing Machine is a mathematical model capable of simulating complex computer algorithms. This is a pretty big deal, or at least so my friend with a math PhD tells me.
For us Magic players though, this complexity is very old news. We adjust, we build, then we readjust when the next set drops or sooner with Banned and Restricted announcements.
What players are not used to is having these processes happen behind the scenes. While MTGO has been digitally shuffling and coin flipping for almost two decades, Arena has introduced something new which seems to be creating some confusion.
BO1 matches are the most popular format on Arena. As a result, understanding how Smoothing impacts gameplay is as important as understanding the cards, knowing when to mulligan, or adjusting to being on the play or draw.
To say Smoothing is misunderstood or controversial may be understating the case. It is never mentioned within the game, so many Arena players are completely unaware it exists. Some players are skeptical of its existence or effect. The wise players not only know that Smoothing is real, they also build their BO1 decks in a fashion that exploits it.
What makes the best Magic players the best is that they understand and exploit the rules better than their opponents. What is Smoothing though? In a typical game of Magic, you draw a random hand of seven cards from the top of your deck; this may be the oldest rule in Magic.
In paper Magic we do this with physical decks but in MTGO, this is done digitally using a random number generator. Arena works the same way as MTGO, with a random number generator creating a random hand for you. However, starting in October of not long after the launch of the open beta periodSmoothing was introduced to BO1 matches. This post resulted in a lot of guessing, questioning and hypothesizing. And a lot of math. So we have no official explanation on the details of what this means.
All of this happens in the background with no visibility to the player. That right there is where people start to get a little off the rails about Smoothing. Is this real? Is it out to get me? I was pretty confident from my own experience playing paper Magic versus playing BO1 that Smoothing was real and what its effect probably was. A big indicator is that in paper Magic no-land hands happen pretty regularly.
You draw, you grumble, then you mulligan and move on with your life. Since MTGO and Arena use random number generators to simulate that experience, no-land draws should be similarly common in Arena BO1, but in my time playing Arena I can only recall coming across such a hand once and it really stood out at the time.
For a no-land hand to happen with Smoothing, both hands drawn by the algorithm would have to be no-land, a very unusual occurrence, so my anecdotal experience fits the understanding. To address these questions about Smoothing more concretely, I decided to collect some data.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts.
Change language. Install Steam. Store Page. Magic Duels Store Page. Global Achievements. I used 3 Nissa's relevations, and one read the bones. I played Nissa's relevation, did not hit creature, put all on bottom. Than I played another one, did not hit the creature, put all on bottom.
I played read the bones, did not liked first two so draw 2 next. After that I replayed Nissa's relevation with greenwarden did not hit creature. It would be realistic if I shuffled library between, but I did not, I do not use evolving wilds in that deck.
And I had only 23, minus 2 from read the bones so 21 card in library and 6 creatures there left.
Arena’s New Opening Hand Rule Has Radical Implications for How We Play the Game
So it is not possible to not hit a creature even if all was stack. So I put 17 cards on bottom, 2 in hand, and I asumed ok, all next draws must be creatures. Funny thing, I draw first creature when I left on 11 cards in library. I tried to fight against bad streak which happens after you earn some coins, and to try to convince myslef that all is in my head, well I get opposite result.
So when game decide you should lose you can't win, because it cheats, and even change your library order. This game is rigged. Library order is not fixed.
And if it is your turn to lose game, it will move all your cards on bottom, even if you send 19 cards on bottom. And for those maybe think Nissa's relevation do not work as it should that is not problem, I just got different cards, all other than was in library instead creatures, so it is not card, it is game.

It is infuriating how rigged the game is especially when you play against the computer. Hey here is land draws 15 times in a row and the AI has all the right cards.Question How can I explain to a friend that arena doesn't have rng problem? Arena has different kind of RNG issue. First it is supposed to be true RNG sure its impossible to make true RNG system on computer but not the pointbut it chose from two hands ruining RNG, favouring some decks and often crippling gameplay, and second it is by far more random then paper if we talk about shuffling.
Im not. But you arent to smart if you believe that human shuffling no matter how well done can be nearly as close as computer randomization Not only uneducated but to stupid to understand what he talks about. Nice man, true internet child!
I think that's the main reason why fast paced decks like red aggro are meta. There are way less chances to get screwed because you finish the game early and you don't really need much mana to win. Still drawing 2 or 3 land in a row t can entirely fuck you up whereas if you're playing a control deck you want lane draws for the first 2 or 3 turns minimum. He is wrong, because if anything rng is more respected than irl, because the shuffle made by an AI is obviously better than the shuffle of a human hand.
Screws and flood should happen more in Arena than they do in paper because it has an impartial and properly randomized shuffler. If the human shuffle isn't the same as the ideal computer shuffle, it's decent enough for it not to have a significant difference with the computer side.
Also, you don't design a game around a potential human unconcious mistake for it to correct the inherent problem.
You design a game around the ideal scenario which is exactly the case of any computer related rng. The gambler's fallacy, also known as the Monte Carlo fallacy or the fallacy of the maturity of chances, is the mistaken belief that, if something happens more frequently than normal during a given period, it will happen less frequently in the future or vice versa. In situations where the outcome being observed is truly random and consists of independent trials of a random process, this belief is false.
The fallacy can arise in many situations, but is most strongly associated with gambling, where it is common among players. The term "Monte Carlo fallacy" originates from the best known example of the phenomenon, which occurred in the Monte Carlo Casino in Tell your friend that distributing the cards in your deck between multiple piles, then stacking those piles up doesn't count as shuffling.
I've heard the terms "pile shuffling", "mana weaving" and "declumping" used to describe that process, and it's not a legal way of shuffling your deck. I suspect that the people who believe the RNG or shuffling algorithms of MTGA are broken either 1 routinely improperly shuffled their decks, or 2 are victims of some combination of the wide range of logical fallacies and biases impacting our ability to properly reason about probabilities and statistics.
And as for shuffling, that's a pretty standard Intro to Computer Science problem, and again, one that's kinda hard to mess up. Just realized what I said there, and now I want a "Hackers vs Wizards" movie. I don't care if it's Sharknado-tier, I want it. Tell him that computer generated randomness is wayyy more random than a random guy shuffling a deck. How often in Casual games do you guys get free mulligans?
Stop giving that, and it feels much more true to how Arena does it. Also, shuffle very well. Whatever is going on with the game something is wrong with it. I play with decks that have 20 mana, I draw turns straight mana in almost every match. I added cards like Path of Discovery and can end up discarding mana after summons.
I just finished a match where my opponent sat and just watched me play mana as they gathered thier army till i hit 12 lands and 3 creatures.This comes along with Historic Anthology 2 and Historic ranked queues, messaging between friends, new emotes, and other cool new features.
