My question is about Magic The Gathering. What happens if both players perpetually decide to do nothing in a turn, except draw and then discard to 7. What happens then?

    How about both players play Platinum Angels and then can't destroy them? That makes this a question – Andrey May 20 '15 at 15:53

The most likely outcome is that one player loses when he has no more cards to draw:

104.3c If a player is required to draw more cards than are left in his or her library, he or she draws the remaining cards, and then loses the game the next time a player would receive priority.

Other possible outcome is a draw during a tournament game with time limit, though a player will likely run out of cards before they reach the limit.

  • @user107952 that is the advantage that you get from going first and not drawing. – ZeRaTuL_jF May 20 '15 at 13:18
  • @ZeRaTuL_jF Definitely not the only advantage XD – Waterseas May 20 '15 at 13:44

  • @corsiKa no troll i didnt say it was the only advantage but it is how wizards of the coast decided that there would be no draws... – ZeRaTuL_jF May 20 '15 at 15:33
