comment Is there a limit on how good you can get at Hearts?
@SQB I think the order of hands does matter because of the card passing that occurs at the beginning, as well as the turn order. If cards were played simultaneously then I would agree that hand order doesnt matter. But swapping two of the players' hands would very likely result in different optimal plays.

comment Why would you want to play with a deck bigger than 60 cards in MTG?
That article does not specifically address the probability of drawing a certain card from a 60 vs a 61 card deck. I dont believe the probability changes as much as you make it sound.

comment Why was Gifts Ungiven so popular?
You also have the option of only finding 2 cards and in that case they both go to the graveyard.

comment Is it legal to take advantage of my opponent's priority mistakes?
@ikegame umm, yes they do 716.1a The rules for taking shortcuts are largely unformalized. As long as each player in the game understands the intent of each other player, any shortcut system they use is acceptable.

@ikegami When you say you are going to cast something and your opponent says something along the lines of "okay" that means they agreed to let it resolve. If you then don't cast it you have violated a rule (most likely a player communication rule)

comment Is it legal to take advantage of my opponent's priority mistakes?
@ikegami when A allows B to cast the spell A is essentially saying he isn't going to counter it. Consider the situation where B has 2 big creatures x and y and A may have a counter. B wants to cast x without it getting countered so he plays y in an attempt to get A to cast his counter. When A doesn't counter it B then takes it back so he can instead cast x. That is most certainly not legal even if I can't cite a specific rule. In your example A gave up priority under the assumption that B was going to cast something he could respond to. There is a rule in the Tournament rules covering this.

@ghoppe That may be how you play, but it took me very little time to find the two examples I just added to my answer of high level players skipping their opponent's priority when declaring attackers.
