    I think this guy was cheating.

    I need a confirmation Iím not absolutely fíing insane and this dude wasnít just cheating.

    A1 Killtrend vs Monster Man 25

    This dude comes at me with a 63 card deck. Ridiculous, I know.

    He pulls a pretty good draw card right off the bat. Ok, nothing too bad.

    Somehow though, he pulls 3 of the exact same artifact card (Armor of Ages) the turn after I destroy it to nullify my attacks, and as soon as I kill an enchantment he has the exact same one to place back down.

    Is he the luckiest dude alive or do you have an api problem?

    -edit-

    Support got back to me. He was apparently just lucky. Smh

    It's certainly possible that he's not and was just extraordinarily lucky, or other way around, who knows.

    Regardless, the best course of action is just to report the suspicious behavior to support@shadowera.com instead of posting it here on the forums. If you'd like an explanation as to why, please view this post. Thanks!

    I use the max deck limit...and made WC finalist last year with my 120 card MONSTER Garth deck...so it's entirely possible he had good draw with his deck 63-card deck (if you hated losing to his deck, you'd really hate playing vs me!)

    It wasnít about losing to a big deck. 60 isnít outrageous. Itís about him placing the same card, likely the only card that could save him, down 3 straight times and replacing another card with its duplicate randomly in the game when I shrieked it. Look the game up. Itís retarded.

    63 card deck = "Ridiculous, I know" (anyway, I disagree that a large deck is ridiculous but that's beside the point). I watched the game...he certainly got very lucky, but that's not a reason to start a post calling him a cheater. Anyway, I bet you'd beat him next time.

    Meh. I was just pissed. 18 resources off an Armor is unsure to have to take off straight with no armor removal over 4.

    There was a large talk about deck size back in the day. More cards=less predictability. I guess now that more cards are out you can plan for stuff

    I don't blame you for being upset after that game. I hate losing to stuff like that...but it does happen.

    Just popped in to confirm there is NO way at all to alter the order of your deck. The server knows the right order and deviation from that would be detected.
