comment Maximum attainable points for a single player in a two player game of Carcassonne
I agree with what you said. What about non-exhaustive searches? Is there a placement algorithm that can maximize this problem?

@user1873 Meeple placement is indeed optional. We can definitely assume the opponent never places one. I never heard of different scoring systems, although I assumed there are older and newer versions of the rules. Going to look that up as soon as I can.

comment Why play Land Grant?
@JSBᾶngs Don't forget that Belcher can also work like a storm deck when it's going off on Empty the Warrens. I have played a lot of Land Grants with nothing to fetch just to increase storm count.

@JSBᾶngs They don't apply here at all. I just wanted to leave a more complete answer so that anyone who reads this can extrapolate for other cases. I will highlight the answer to be clearer.

comment Recommended strategies for the MTGO Cube
@ghoppe I believe the answer will be a lot different, specially because the card pool is known. It's different to ask for general draft strategies or INN draft strategies, for example: in INN draft we can actually talk about decks like self-mill with spider spawning. In cube it's the same: there's the general archetypes like aggro, control, etc, but you can also build something a lot more specific like reanimator, burn, wildfire, ramp, white weenie, etc.

comment How can I beat green Tron with a control deck?
@AlexP I don't think Realm Razer is that good unless you can kill it before the ETB trigger resolves. A simple Pyroclasm will bring all lands back to the battlefield.

comment What game mechanic can be used for evenly selecting other players but not yourself?
@Jefromi You are right, and I didn't think my comment that throughly as well. :( If every player has it's deck it's the same as non-relative positions. And if the deck is shared, than there is no telling the distribution will be the same. I shouldn't be so quick to vote answers up!

Love this answer! Using relative positions is elegant and works for every different variation discussed in the comments! Simply wonderful :D
