This comic reminds me of Candy Land. In Candy Land, after you shuffle the cards and the order of participants has been determined, the winner has already been established as well. Granted you don’t know who the winner will be, but the order of the cards already determines the winner.
I don’t think that’s so much the case with Magic: The Gathering, but there is a factor of “who has what cards in their deck” that majorly decides the outcome of the game. Still that’s the nature of collectible card games.
Chez Geek… Now there’s a card game that requires a little luck, but definitely some skills too.
