Decks are not 40 cards (4x of each card)

naphomcinaphomci Posts: 83 Match Maker
So, there have been some people asking about this, but this is the set of cards I just got in training grounds with Saheeli:
Opening 3:
Shivan Reef
Fleetwheel Cruiser
Shivan Reef
Next cards, in order:
Shivan Reef
Shivan Reef (if the old description of decks was true, this would be the last Shivan Reef I could see for the next 35 cards)
Maulfist Doorbuster
Maulfist Doorbuster
Shivan Reef, number 5.

So, can @Brigby tell us what the new deck make up is?

    The decks behave a bit weird since the last update imo.
    Today, I got three times 4 copies of the same card in the first half dozen turns. Not impossible with a 40 card deck, but the odds are.. Low. (no card draw mechanics (apart from shefet) involved)

    /E: actually, 5 times, including screenshots of the last 4 times -.-

    When some asked a few weeks ago, the official answer was that nothing had changed 

    https://forums.d3go.com/discussion/64326/40-card-deck/p2

    But we have all noticed the strange behaviour of the draw mechanism and lots of us have faced situations that clearly indicate that the 40 card deck does not exist anymore or does not work as it did anymore

    Hi Everyone. I was able to get answers for the second round of questions I sent over to the developers. You can find them below:

    What happens when you get to the end of your 40 card deck?
    40 new cards are generated in your library, as if you just started the game.

    How does fetching the next X cards from your deck work if you go past the end of the deck?
    It generates a new 40 card library, then fetches from it. So yes, anything that draws a specific card can draw infinite copies of said card.

    What about destroying cards out of your deck (i.e. Gather the Pack?)
    Again, it generates a new 40 card library, then destroys the specified cards.

    Does it take three rounds of questions before they fix EVERY bug? Must be exhausting.

    It would have been great to see a battle log of this.  E.g. there are ways to deplete the deck without cards going into your hand; with a battle log, this kind of thing could be ruled out.
    Stockpiled unopened packs are a goldmine of drop rate data - don't let it go to waste!
    You can record what you open here, or post a video for someone else to enter the data.

    Had a game earlier today where i ended up with 5 Rishkar's expertise before encountering a single cast out. Definetly not just 4 copies :/

    I forgot about the log. But I listed every card I drew. None manipulate the library. Nor did I activate any of Saheeli's abilities

    @Volrak ive got screenshots of the battlelog for the situation I posted in the other thread... i can put them somewhere if itll make any difference.

    Honestly, as a relatively new player and not knowing about the 40 cards deck, I always have a feeling that the draw is completely random.

    If they're handy I'd be curious to see them.  One possibility of several is that it's a bug in the behaviour of a card or ability which d3 might not yet be able to reproduce; pooling our knowledge about what the possible triggers might be could help to isolate it.

    Or, the deck size might just be changed without any communication, in which case the logs won't do a lot.

    I drew 5 copies of censor and 5 copies of forsake the unworldly before I got my second cast out. I'm beginning to think cycling has something to do with it. Only happens when I draw a million cards. I've never drawn more than 6 copies of a card without seeing the other cards in proportion. I'm logging all of my games to get some usable data. Something's not right.

    Ok here's my Battle Log:

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4iDvhSEWxaranFsS0JISEJJSk0

    Hieroglyphic Illumination is the first card I drew 5 of, I believe. [edit] oops, no, this must have been another game; here, I drew a 5th copy of Dissenter's Deliverance.

    I very much don't think it's cycling; I remember one time drawing 5 Pigs in my first 8 cards, playing Saheeli before AKH was released.

    Now that you've mentioned cycling, tho, I bet Brigby will turn up and say 'Oh, yeah, it's cycling', because they do that here.

    Yes. That is one possibility. I can think of a few more.

    I too seem to be getting 40+Decks, especially with Saheeli (5 Boomships in round 4)
  • naphomcinaphomci Posts: 83 Match Maker
    If you look at my original post, it is not cycling. None of the cards I listed cycle.

    If I counted right, your first 40 cards were:
    Censor x3
    Displacement Wave x3
    Dissenter's Deliverance x5
    Floodwaters x5
    Hieroglyphic Illumination x4
    Kessig Prowler x3
    New Perspectives x4
    Shefet Monitor x3
    Sphinx's Tutelage x5
    Vizier of Tumbling Sands x5

    So it looks like more than just one card out of place.  If someone feels bored, a thing to do would be to log 60 draws and see whether there are exactly x6 of each card.

    @Volrak
    I felt bored a bit and tried it with a looping deck in RatC (Tezzeret..) 
    I am still convinced something is wrong with the decks ..well, but this time the data wants me to take off the tinfoil hat.
    I drew 44 cards, 4 of each in the first 40 + 4 single ones after it. No Cycling involved (apart from Shefet Monitor), card draw only through Alha..whatever..archive + Retreat to Coralheim + I did not use Kioras second ability

    Since there seems to be differing deck behaviors with various players' attempts, I've relayed this question to the developers. I'll inform the community of their response when I hear back from them.

    This is a thought but needs improved upon. Paper allows 60 card decks for competition. Since we don't include the usual 20 mana. 6 pulls of the same card and you can't draw it anymore? Its a thought. I have a sweet cycling deck but endless draws are crazy. They nerfed baral and then gave us cycling. The dumbed down a card to give us decks that do worse things and then add a planeswalker to help it further lol. New perspectives is a nuclear bomb. Drake haven sphinx tutelage shadowsstorm vizier and curator of mysteries. I'm not adding in the other color combos. The sad part is you can do insane things with a handful of cheap cards. Draw decks have to be limited.

    Hi Everyone. I just wanted to stop by to give a quick update.

    I relayed this information to the developers, and they said it's possible the original deck issue with Saheeli Rai may not be fixed. They will investigate further.

    @Brigby Just to be clear, the battle log posted above was playing Kiora, not Saheeli Rai (hence the green and blue cards).
