Fixing the shuffler should be a priority.
Is like the shuffler is set in correlation to the deck you've built!!
It feels so fake plus it sets the bar only for certain decks to work:
I wanna build my janky decks but can't because of this!
I don't feel rewarded as a player that creates some funky combos if shuffler is set this way!
Instead of creating broken cards/ synergies and then ban it... Wasting everybody's time you should fix the shuffler FIRST!
That should be the - BASIS - for a full, working and rewarding game.
please reset the shuffle system. in not random...

So many **** issues with this game and it "randomness"
One of the things about MTG that I love is the random factor and not all games being the same.
MTGA is just plain **** when it comes to that, everything feels "FIXED"
When is the "shuffler" going to get fixed? It is sickening drawing either 5-6 lands in a row or no lands for 5-6 turns. It happens WAYY to constantly to just be "Random"
Starting hands of ONE land even after Mulligan when I put 27 lands in my deck.
Look at this game ... 42 out of 60 cards drawn and not a single copy of Zenith Flare, so the ONE card I need for the win is in the bottom 17 cards????
*edit* as I post this I start another game .... another example of 1 Land hand ...
How about making the game more REAL and have a REAL RNG, instead of this fixed nonsense, it is aggravating . . .
Based on the canned responses I have received from Wizards support, this is never going to be fixed and they are completely ignoring this thread....nobody from support has said anything of value (if anything at all) in this thread.
I'm not sure the spamming of complaints is helping matters though....I completely understand how frustrating this is. I have sent them many complaints about the shuffler, the bundling of cards and only seeing the same cards over and over again....as well as the issue of seeing my 1-of's and 2-of's in every opening draw and not seeing my 4-of's until late game....
These are all real issues and there definitely appears to be a vast number of users complaining about this, not just in this forum but other forums as well such as Reddit...
This is also not only a problem that the F2P players are experiencing...I am a P2P consumer who experiences these issues as well and quite regularly.
I've always had the mana issues, but the other shuffler issues I have seen a much higher volume of since Zendikar release...not sure if the DFMC's have had anything to do with this and if the algorithm is picking them up as lands only...? not sure, but regardless, it's a real issue that is not being addressed by Wizards.
The decision is really up to us...do we continue to play and complain, or do we cut our losses and leave? I love MTG, but this is definitely souring my experience on the game...and with the COVID issues, this is really the only way to play, and they know that....
With 2 kids in the house, my gaming time is at a premium, so I have started to transition away from MTGA and spending what few hours of gaming time I get to other games where my time is more enjoyable...
If you are finding the game uplayable, I suggest you also find a different game to enjoy...our personal time is too precious and we know Wizards will not address this issue, which is terribly unfortunate...
This is reducing the number of users
Oh dear, drop in votes again? was this not over 1000 before?
Shuffler is very fake. I don't know what randomizing algorithm you guys are using but simple probabilities are broken. Does not conform to either binomial or hypergeometric distributions. Absolute nonsense and it has become so ridiculous that I have no desire to play. Good job guys.
It was an awful farce.
AFTER 3 YEARS YOUD FIGURE ARENAS MODERATORS WOULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO SHUFFLE DECKS BETTER. IF IM NOT GETTING NOTHING BUT LANDS, IM GETTING NO LANDS OR DRAWING EVERY COPY OF 1 OR 2 CARDS IN THE FIRST FEW TURNS.
CONSTANTLY DRAWING NOTHING BUT MANA. IM PLAYING A DECK WITH 22 LANDS. I DREW 7 MANA IN A ROW THE FIRST 5 TURNS WITH CYCLING 2 CARDS. THIS HAPPEN FAR TOO OFTEN WITH ARENA. ITS ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC. THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN PAPER BECAUSE PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO ******* SHUFFLE. SORT THIS **** OUT.

I believe it got worse after the omnath update though, it's unplayable now
There must be a bug somewhere because I just cannot seem to experience this issue. Every single time my deck is shuffled, the cards always seem to end up in a different and equally likely order.
I mean with less than 10^82 different possible orders (for piles of 60 unique cards), how likely is it that my deck is always in a different order each time it's shuffled?
I did mulligan sourching for mana but in the mulligan to 4 I wouldn´t found anything. I lost that match
more shit. Just one black land in 11 turns but all of my cards were black
when you play against a mono red always happen this
more and more
Today the same thing with the lands.
Extreme rigged is MTGA
Still playing with my older decks in Historic and still seeing the same shuffler madness.
