    For a long time I thought I was just thinking 'it's rigged' when I lost but looking at my win / lose ratio it's clear something is very off. Some days I can't win at all, I mean maybe 2 or three games in every 20 games.

    What happens on those days?

    Mana Flood
    Mana Screw
    The opponent goes first a statistically improbable amount of times
    The opponent never has mana issues
    The opponent always top decks the perfect card
    The opponent runs constant counterspells
    The opponent runs constantly destroy / board wipe / Hand destruction spells
    The opponent runs any deck with a turn 3 / 4 win

    If I change deck then I win for the first three games, then back to the same form as above.

    This has nothing to do with my quality of play and everything to do with the shuffler and matchmaker.

    I refuse to believe that EVERYONE is playing goblins and always goes first because that's what I play against more than 50% of the time....

    I contacted Wizards of the coast support thinking there was something going wrong and they flatly said 'Well everyone is constrained by the same rules, so it's fair'

    I'm inclined to believe that what we are actually playing against is BOTS, this is the only thing that makes sense, there is no way that only a tiny percentage of opponents I play against have mana issues and draws a statistically improbable perfect hand of god every game I lose.

    So my experience is that following a day when you won more than 50% of the games, the following day you cannot win. I also find that on the days I lose all the time I'm playing against decks that essentially auto-win, with perfect hands that cause you to lose at turn 2 or 3. I've also found that on the days I lose a lot I'm struggling for mana, yet the opponent never suffers this problem. I also find that on the days I lose the opponent always has the perfect answer to everything in hand, so if I play an enchantment deck they have a fist full of enchantment removal, if I play a creature deck they have to destroy and board wipe if I have anything else they have counters.

    I've been playing magic for over 24 years and I know the game inside and out, the quality of my play doesn't fluctuate to such extremes, so yeah... Magic Arena is 100% rigged!
