No point mentioning this as most people eg. 2 seem to be against it anyway, but afro thought we could use the tie-break system from the official rules. When a player is reduced to 0 or less life, five extra turns are played to see if he could kill the opponent. Five turns means:
Turn 1-Player A
Turn 2-Player B
Turn 3-Player A
Turn 4-Player B
Turn 5-Player A
We can be flexible with the amount of turns. Take an extra turn abilities count towards one of these five turns.

Really, no opinions more developed than a simple 'no'?

Yes, but this is in a situation where it was just luck that broke a balanced situation

I agree...

what I suggested to WWW Crying or Very sad is that if both players agree prior to a challenge, the challenge could be "best of 5", instead of "best of 3".

I dont see a problem if both players agree, however the default would remain at "best of 3"

This could potentially be a better indicator of the relative strengths of players' decks and reduce the impact that random chance has on the final outcome.

Luck of the draw does seem to be a major factor in the outcome of some of these matches.

But as the number of games increases, Andy, the margin should become more apparent. I think best of 5 is a fair alternative.

Well, people don't need to use two other decks for extended rounds.

The option to go to "best of 5" would be just that.
It would not be compulsory, it would be agreed by consensus.
Therefore there is no requirement to have 5 decks.
