    Is anyone familiar with a certain parody card that, while nowhere near printable for black-border, would almost work in silver-border, the biggest problem being that a card's name is not considered part of its text?

    I believe it was called "Great Ttargeter."

    Just finished something I've been working on for two months. I analyzed shuffling in a million games.
    Like 4X (aka Civilization-like) gaming? Know programming? Interested in game development? Take a look.

    Wow, congrats! I'm looking at it now but wanted to say this looks really cool!
    The name is "tonberrian", even when it begins a sentence. It's magic, I ain't gotta 'splain why.

    Really impressive! It matches some of the assumptions pros online have had about land distribution changing by number in deck, it is 😎 to have confirmation.

    It is nice to know from your study that it's not just me and I do seem to get mana screwed proportionally more when I keep 2-land hands in Limited than I probably should.

    As people in the comments of the reddit post have already said, your research would have greatly benefited from a proper hypothesis.

    Probably a bit too much harking for its own good. But not bad.

    While I think my results are strong enough to be considered significant already, I am seriously considering resetting the aggregation, starting it from the point just after I took all those screenshots, and trying to do a more formalized and strict followup analysis. I would state in advance a number of things I would look for in exacting detail, guided by the discrepancies and trends I found the first time, and then check how well the new data fits them. If you have any suggestions or requests regarding this, please post them.

    My only one would be to post the hypothesis and method on reddit, and possibly here, for critique/correction before you begin.
