comment Do the Magic tournament rules allow Rock-Paper-Scissors to see who goes first?
@ghoppe Cutting even like that isn't really fair either. If I cut to some card I only have one of, then I now know its position in my deck and that could affect my mulligan decision. Or, if we cut before we shuffle, the cut may not be truly random if I have my deck stacked. We could shuffle, then cut, then shuffle again, but that's a lot of work. A better method: Get a random card (could be from one of the decks, I suppose), and then ask your opponent if the Collector Number printed at the bottom of the card is odd or even. If they get it right, they can go first.
