You can do this calculation using the multivariate hypergeometric distribution. The setup is as follows: The deck of 60 cards consists of: 4 cards of type A, 4 cards of type B, 4 cards of type C, 4 cards of type D, and 44 cards of type E (other). Your criteria are that a hand of 7 cards contains at least 1 card of type A, at least 1 card of type B, at least ...

When you create a copy of something you copy pretty much everything about it including its name [706.2.]. And Pack Hunt only needs a creature to target, it doesn't care if the creature is a token or a real card all it care about is that it is a creature. So Pack Hunt will happily find more of whatever creature you happened to copy. If the created token ...

Why was Lich created? I think this is the real subtext of your question: why does Lich exists? I think to understand Lich, you've got to put it in context: it's a flavor-first design from Alpha. Lich is, first and foremost, supposed to feel like lichdom in fantasy stories, particularly Dungeons & Dragons: undeath, power and immortality at a grave ...

Your opponent would still gain control of Humble Defector. I assume that by "after it is activated", you mean before the ability has resolved. After you activate Humble Defector's ability the second time, then there will be two instances of its ability on the stack, both targeting an opponent of yours. When the second activation resolves, you draw two ...

No, the Winged Sliver does not have flying but grants itself that ability along with all other sliver creatures. The first ruling on the Soulflayer page says that it does not happen. Creature cards that have abilities that grant the listed keyword abilities to themselves won’t count. For example, exiling a Battle Brawler (a creature with “As long as you ...

If you want to activate Lions Eye Diamond before drawing a card, you must do so before Gitaxian Probe resolves. You can respond to another event, like your opponent playing a spell or activating an ability. So no, there is no opportunity to respond to your spell once it has begun resolving. You will get priority after the spell resolves, and at that time ...

To achieve what you're wanting, you'll have to do as follows: 1) Cast Gitaxian Probe 2) Before passing priority to your opponent, activate Lion's Eye Diamond 3) Once you discard your hand and get your mana, Gitaxian Probe will remain on the stack (and can resolve as normal). The important thing is to remember to immediately activate Lion's Eye as soon ...

Not as you have written, while Gitaxian Probe is resolving no one can do anything since no one has priority. However you could cast Gitaxian Probe, hold priority, and then activate Lion's Eye Diamond, thus you will get to draw after discarding your hand because Gitaxian Probe has not resolved yet (as you did not pass priority). This won't allow you to look ...

Sure, here's one: http://www.mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/54452 Lich + Death's Shadow or Magus of the Mirror or Repay in Kind

Lich is an extreme card advantage card. If the battlefield is balanced - no advantage to either player in attacking - and your opponent is not playing direct damage, and you have any repeatable life gain at all, you will draw your whole deck in short order. It isn't a card you could drop into any Black deck; it requires you to construct a deck around it. ...
