comment Statistics on a booster pack (to make my own re-packs)
@ikegami They've stated explicitly they print cards in sheets and you can see them if you for example do an image search for "mtg sheet". And I really just meant that they're not completely random, because they print some finite number of sheets (presumably equal numbers of each card at a given rarity) and then repackage those into packs, so at the very least they can't all be all red, and if they don't mix up all the cards from a really large number of sheets, it's much less random than that :)

@ikegami Well, they could be fully random and Wizards just hasn't said so, right? (But of course, they can't be completely random given that they print the cards in sheets.)

If they're entirely random, you could probably look at at least several dozen packs without ever seeing fewer than two of a color - I wouldn't infer that it's a rule. And it's definitely not true that they're always half creatures and half noncreature spells. Maybe you meant about half? Which again, is likely to happen with random choices...

Don't need strikethroughs.

comment Pokemon damage multiplied
Maybe it's obvious to people who play Pokemon, but... what is the card you're asking about?

comment What Mana Fixing should I use in Khans of Tarkir Sealed Format?
Voting to reopen: it's definitely possible to write math-based answers, and even if you write a slightly subjective answer based on solid reasoning about effects of various choices, that's totally fine - definitely not "primarily opinion-based".

comment Can my opponent and I decide on a victory condition to avoid a draw?
@Affe I mentioned in other comments that I assumed the OP would be interested in things you can do when it's obvious you're going to draw but haven't actually drawn yet, i.e. the kind of turn 5 concession that you mentioned. It's not like it's a surprise when the match ends in a draw, and you'll always be left with no choice but to just write that down.

@VolleyJosh I commented because I assumed the OP was trying to figure out what they could actually do (knowing one thing you can't do isn't terribly useful), but I guess since this got accepted it really was that specific.

I know the question didn't explicitly ask, but as long as we're here, could you explain what you can do in this kind of situation?

comment Can my opponent and I decide on a victory condition to avoid a draw?
I think the idea of the question is for one player to concede before the match ends in a draw - for example, if you run out of time and the last game goes to extra turns, you could concede the game/match at any time before the end of the last turn. (I do now notice it says "if we draw" not "if we're about to draw", but that's not that big a change to make, and I'm sure the OP would be happy to know what can be done in that case. Maybe I've misunderstood though!)

Can you elaborate a bit? It's still okay to decide, at the end of the match, to concede (getting nothing in return) and let the other player move on, right? And even to discuss who should concede, as long as it'd not done before the match?

When you say "we" can have a chance at prizes, do you mean you're talking about deciding who will concede but splitting hypothetical prizes? Or do you simply mean that one of you will bow out and give the other a chance at it?

comment Are there cards which work differently on Ink-Treader Nephilim depending on who controls it?
Just... differently at all? There are tons of cards that have additional effects for the target's controller.
