To be fair, I had just won an impossible game versus JamalTheGuy in close quarters.

But then I faced Steppenwolf. This is what he had:

- Art hero
- Vision for 2 recons
- 2 blinds
- pacify ground
- pacify air
- immobilize
- adrenaline (+2) ...


Impressive.

-2 commons (or a rare)

-uncommon

I know it's a great combo but seriously. They're almost all commons :)

It's a map that favors long range arts, too:

i could do some maths now but i bet you the chance on getting these cards are higher than you think for 1k+ games.

Art hero is ultra rare.

Blinds, merc recon, adrenaline are uncommon

Anyway, when we make a constructed deck we many times choose mostly common/uncommon cards, and it can be strong. The combination was what made it so strong here. Vision, range, debuffs, hard speedy inf ...

Obviously you get some games like these, or others that are equally impossible (and not so obvious - most of the impossible games, like the one I won vs JamalTheGuy in close quarters, involve a lot of mercs/enlists in a suitable map).

1. Please avoid double-posts geral. We've asked several times. I combined your posts with "EDIT:"
2. LIke i said, almost all those are commons, except the one Ultra Rare. And getting ONE Ultra Rare in sealed isn't that huge. I know it's a good one, but still..

1 ultra rare and at least 4 uncommons, but the value was on the combination of cards. Like hardy inf with adrenaline, or art hero with vision, plus a lot of debuff for immediate threaths.

Like I said, many players use a lot of commons and uncommons in their constructed decks. They are still constructed decks.
