I just had this exact error happen to me as well. I'm suspecting that it was a hack of some sort. I can't remember the name of the individual that I was playing against, although it's certainly unfortunate that this is happening and that Wizard's aren't addressing this issue, especially since people are paying to play & that magic is a pay to win style game(kind of).

This game's standard ranked games are just pure poop. I made it up to Platinum & now everygame I play I lose, either due to poor drawing, ie, only starting with 1 mana and forced to mulligan multiple times, when I do mulligan it seems like 9/10 times I get stuck with only land draws for the next 4 turns, but that doesn't matter because my opponent will have kept all his 7 starting cards and is able to pull off a turn 3 win every time.
The only way I win is if I join a game and just walk away from the desktop, sometimes people stay and I'll get timed out, other times the opponent will leave. This saddens me as I've been playing paper magic for over a decade and this has never happened - at least not this consistently or this predictably*.
*I say predictably because if I win one game or two games then I'll be stuck with a poop hand for the next 2 to 3 games or will be getting land draws consistently.
"my average lands in my decks are 23 some deck 20 (out of 60 cards) the odds aren't that high that I'll get 4 to 5 lands in a row everytime I lose a game...
Wizard of the Coast, please for the love of the players sanity fix the shuffler system.
