    To elaborate on the obvious frustration, the shuffle algorithm has been a problem for the entirety of mtga's existance and it's been reported as a problem for the entirety of it's existance. The sheer unwillingness to fix a problem with one if not THE most fundamental system of a TCG is unforgivable.

    Everyone playing the game knows that the shuffling algorithm is fundamentally flawed. And i don't know how exactly it currently works thus i can't really state precise sggestions on how to fix it but fact of the matter is that i lose a disproportional number of games to that piece of **** algorithm. I kept track over the recent few days and it was ~9/10 games that were lost to mana flooding or mana ***** and about 7/10 wins were because the opponent seemed to have the same issue. So in most games my ability to play the game isn't even tested. there's always luck involved in TCG's but that is fcking ********. There's 2 options, either make the algorithm true random, which does not represent the real shuffling but is fair. Or figure out a better way to skew the odds compared to whatever you are doin right now. Moreover it is plain as day that the odds for certain cards are being skewed considering the lack of mulligans certain archtypes need for a perfect opener which can't be justified by statistics, in other words you are clearly, statisticall undeniably promoting certain archtypes and demoting others, stop with the ********. I don't give a rats *** what you think people want to play, you're wrong. You have no idea about deckbuiilding and why we build stuff the way we do that is shown time and time again with the mental jmisssteps of R&D, just give us fun cards and an unbiased shuffling and let us do the work.

    In other words true random shuffling or do a thorough analyisis of how a welll shuffeled deck looks like after a de-sorting pile shuffling and a bit of normal shuffling and being cut, aka they way we start of an in person tournament.

    As it stands i will definitely never pay money again for a WotC product, not in person either, i'm sick and tired of getting ********* the *** by ****** gamedevs
