comment Could an actual mono black storm (Tendril of agony) deck be viable for Legacy?
Perhaps a way to make this less opinion based would be to ask if a deck like what you described has ever been played at a Legacy tournament of a high enough level that the deck was tracked.

comment All armies and fleets destroyed - Still in Game?
Even if it wasn't a home supply center they are technically not eliminated from the game. They could be included in a draw despite having no pieces on the board (and no way of getting more). You aren't eliminated until you have zero centers during a winter phase.

comment How many is “A bunch”?
@Southpaw See the answer above. In some cases, doing more than you need can end up killing you instead, so you might not always want to go with one billion...

comment What happens when additional costs can't ultimately be paid, but the spell is on the stack?
You sacrifice the goblin when you put the spell on the stack, not when it resolves. There is no way for the opponent to terror the goblin to stop your spell.

comment Where can I find a list of all the cards in Elder Sign?
I think it would help to give a more specific example of what you are looking for when you say "Know what my chances are".

comment Space combat game with standard deck of cards
Actually it is an old MS_DOS game that has nothing at all to do with this question.

@Jonathan Too broad, not off-topic. Clearly questions about strategy in a game are not off-topic.

comment What is your average VP score rolling 2 versus 4 dice after an initial 3322xx roll?
Nice. Rerolling everything but 3s is also better from a non-VP view, as those 2s are completely worthless if you don't match them, but things like energy and hits might be worthwhile. Unless of course you are trying to avoid hitting.

Does strat 2 have an issue on roll 2 if you rolled two 1s? So if you end up with 332211 is it just keeping that? Probably won't make much of a difference, but worth correcting. Also, for strat 3 if you don't end up with either set, shouldn't you default back to strat 1, which has a better 1 roll expected value?

Your expected value for 2 dice still seems wrong. The values for both the 1/36 cases are off.

I think you double-counted the one 3 and one 2 scenarios. It should be chance of rolling one 3 and one that isn't a 2 or 3 to avoid that, making them 8/36 instead.
