Break loops -> each card only 4 times in the deck

Wasn't there the restriction to have the same card only 4 times in a deck?
The latest endless loops (or nearly endless) work all the same:
One specific card is needed endless times.
And the decks seem to contain them endless times.

If these cards where only 4 (or n) times in the deck - the endless loop would not be possible!

    Are they fetching the card?

    Kiora, Arlinn, and Saheeli can all fetch creatures with their abilities.

    The game is supposed to create a 40 card deck to work from, then when either you draw all the cards in that deck, or you would attempt to pull a card that does not exist in the remaining cards, the game creates another 40-card deck to sit underneath the existing one.

    As a result certain exploits have been made that allow you to only have one creature in a deck, yet tutor up more than 4 copies of it before you'd normally be able to draw into them.

    Yeah if there was only 4 copies of each card in the deck, you'd have to change the entire format of how MTGPQ is played

    Yep. It would of course have other effects too. But at least a lot of this loops would not work anymore. Other abilities might  still be valuable, if theycreate token creaturese....
    Other opportunities open up, like emptying your opponents deck - reshuffling your graveyard into the deck.
