Please do away with shuffler algorithms; just randomize it. I feel I need to build a deck to suit the algorithms which I don't want to.' The algo is completely obvious and often ridiculous. I think it would be great for MTG to just randomize it, because the shuffler seems to work best with copy paste unoriginal decks. So fix it. Now. Random is cheaper to for you guys. Fire some people, whatever.
Did my first constructed event yesterday, 3 matches 3 losses against people that has PERFECT hands each and every time.
Now, the company TOTALLY RANDOMIZES OR IT'S NOT WORTH GOING ON PLAYING.
If they fix the shuffle one side will lose.
100 card tri color deck 40 lands, DO I EVER DRAW LANDS?? NOPE. MULLIGAN DOWN TO 1 TO GET 1 LAND
95 CARD DECK, 35 LANDS, DO I EVER GET MORE THAN 2 LANDS? NOPE. IS IT ONE OF MY 11 MOUNTAINS? NOPE. IS IT ONE OF MY 6 SWAMPS? NOPE. iS IT ONE OF MY 4 ISLANDS? NOPE. IS IT THAT LONELY FACELESS HAVEN? SURE IS..AND SOMEHOW I DRAW 2 COPIES OF IT DESPITE ONLY HAVING ONE IN MY DECK
and it's not even about the lands..it's about the drawing in general. I get 3 lands and keep 7, but then for 5 turns I DRAW NO LANDS. OR, WHEN I DON'T NEED LANDS..I DRAW NOTHING BUT LANDS.
And it's not exclusive to lands either..do I ever draw a copy of a card I have 4 of in my deck? NOPE. DO I DRAW A COPY OF A CARD I HAVE 3 OF ..NOPE. BUT WHAT ABOUT THAT ONE HIGH COSTED CARD I CAN'T EVEN PLAY BECAUSE I HAVE NO LANDS AND ONLY HAVE ONE COPY OF IN MY DECK..
DO I DRAW IT..
OF COURSE I DO.
85 CARD DECK - 32 LANDS..SAME ISSUE
60 CARD DECK 25 LANDS ...SAME ISSUE
DOES NOT MATTER IF IT'S TRADITIONAL STANDARD OR JUST STANDARD RANKED PLAY. Heck, I even built a 250 card deck with 50 creatures and 200 lands..AND STILL HAD TO MULLIGAN TWICE TO GETA DANG LAND.
Really needs to be fixed. complete bs.
Petition for shuffler
I really do not know if I should play this anymore, because of this. Basically you're betting / gambling while house screws you over. Those gold coins and gems, they are worth of money, those games should be subject to some kind of fair play rules. If WotC doesn't want to play fair, maybe some politician is willing to look if there is something they can do, and while they're at it, if those booster packs are similar of loot boxes? Is that the response you're asking?
Since Strixheaven the shuffler is worst than ever!
Shuffler is broken.
I've sent this message by taking one bellow here as a model.
I think that we need to move a bit more to make it move :
For start, I do not want a refund of my spent money.
But I made purchases in belief that I would play digital equivalent of the original paper Magic the Gathering. After some time I realized that this is not the case. MTGA uses Hand Smoothing and opponent deciding algorithms at a level I consider egregious, which derives the game to be completely different than the original paper Magic the Gathering. Smoothing causes some players to build their BO1 decks in a fashion that exploits it.
This has not been made clear to the players who makes the purchases which can be seen as intentionally action.
While I enjoyed the game, I will clearly not spend more in this one as I see this as an issue.
Thank you for taking this into consideration.
Same problem, either zero lands or only lands. It seems the game tries to limit your progress up the tiers. Did 12 wins in a row yesterday. Haven't been able to win a single match since then and it's the same unmodified deck. I just find it extremely strange how the opponent's deck drops perfectly every time and I mean EVERY time, even the free preconstructed decks?
I feel this... they applied an "algorithm" that's supposed to "fix" your mana but obviously fails for so many deck compositions. random is better.
Build a Yorion deck, shuffler "fixed" fixed as in rigged.
it is incredibly annoying and frustrating when you are constantly playing games where you are stuck at your third land for more than 5 turns, and that's in a 60 card deck with 22 lands which I think it's completely reasonable! also happens incredibly often that you get 3 copies of the same card on your opening hand, c'mon !! that happens sooooo fkn often it's not even funny, for real that shuffling system is broken
It is frustrating getting 2 mana out of 16 (limited deck, 40-42 cards) on the initial draw and then no more mana for the rest of the game. Feel like I am wasting my gold and gems playing drafts since it is happening so often.
I don't think i managed to play 2 games in a row since Strixhaven that weren't either a flood or a *****... And I played a minimum of 10 games per day since then. Some decks notoriously are constatly screwed, but don't try to think you should add a few more lands cause then you will draw only then.
AWFUL shuffler algorithm...
I think i played the last 3 Izzet games only with Frost Bite, mulliganed two of them, first 2 draws.... FROST BITE....

I put one Strixhaven card in my deck and what would you guess i got it in my first draw 8 times out of 10
Same when i had one blue card in BaW deck
Also seems some cards in the deck exclude some others to get to hand. Example if i put Griffina aerie in my deck i hardly get any cards to get life, i put it out and voila getting life all the time. Sme cards in there i dont see for a whole week and some others especially witx X in casting cost i see much too often.
One of the most glaring and anoying issues in your game, thats just lazyness

Not just the shuffler algorithm, also the matchmaking algorithm. Absolutely hate how over 50% of my matches are mirror matches even when I play off meta decks.
Also anybody else notice that if you switch decks it is **** near guaranteed that your first match with the new deck will be a mirror match?
There is now way the shuffler you are currently using is realistic. I overloaded the deck with more lands than anything else, still could only pull 2 lands at any time. Mind you, the deck at that time was 80% lands. YOUR GAME IS BROKEN!!!!
MTGA Shuffler ist Müll
So true is does ruin the game for me, I have adapted though... but it drains all the fun and make matches nihilistically meaningless...
