    Ever notice that whenever you're about to level from Gold to Platinum or Platinum to Diamond that the difficulty goes up massively? It's not really "difficulty", it's just the matchmaker making it very unlikely for you to win and then the shuffler dooming you. I've ran an experiment on this - if I buy something, I get the last two pips to move up a level about 60% of the time back to back. When I don't, it's literally lose two games, get one win back, but you'll never move up to the next level without switching decks. I've also found that I get free wins if I just rebuild the deck and name it something else - Arena seems to be primed to hand out free wins like that.

    I also doubt that there's this many real people playing online at any given time. I assume that Wizards has bots ready to go with exact countermeasures whenever you start winning.

    TL;DR - if casinos did what Wizards is doing, they'd be hit with confiscatory fines and might even face jail time. Seems how it's a "children's card game", they can steal money from people without any oversight whatsoever.
