comment Can uncounterable spells still be countered somehow?
@murgatroid99 I think optimizing for the common visitor, in this case, means "Yell at the devs to patch the system so [mtg] links aren't broken constantly anymore."

comment Is there a Magic intro deck that focuses on lifestealing?
For what it's worth, of the two of those, Power looks more fun & flavorful.

comment Is it impossible to pay off-color mana costs in EDH?
@Nick Good question! The best way to get a definitive answer is to ask it as its own question.

comment When testing a deck, what % of rejected hands is acceptable?
I don't think this quite answers your question, but it's a bunch of useful detail-oriented math: channelfireball.com/articles/…

comment How many cards do I need to make a collected set “draftable?”
@Rainbolt You fundamentally misunderstand the question. I have no idea how to explain this to you in any more detail.

comment How many cards do I need to make a collected set “draftable?”
@Rainbolt ... Err, because I want to actually enjoy Innistrad Draft, not Duplicate Innistrad Draft? Part of the technical achievement of the set is that there are really cool combo-like archetypes that emerge sometimes but can't just be forced every round, and variance in the card pool is a big part of that.

comment How many cards do I need to make a collected set “draftable?”
@Rainbolt If you crack a half-box worth of cards to draft, not every card will show up every time, even at lower rarities. I'm asking for information about how to compare the composition of drawing packs from a fixed pool (where there might only be, say, 3 Spider Spawnings in existence at all) vs. an unlimited one. This is not at all addressed by the question of "What's in an Innistrad pack?" (which is trivial to research).

@Waterseas Did you do any math to figure out those were the numbers you wanted for acceptable variance? If so, I'd love to see an explanation of your approach.

Yeah, seeing a reasonable number of dupes is important. A lot of draft strategies involved stuff like picking up lots of Geistflames.
