No shot, although this market existing might incentivise people to do this adversarially.

@CubityFirst is it possible to tie in magic? lol

@DesTiny It is possible, though pretty hard, to draw a game of magic. I had a look at the starter decklists and can even confirm that it's possible with cards that could appear in this tournament. The monoblack deck, e.g., has a copy of [[Bad Deal]] which causes each player to lose 2 life as part of its effect, which could result in all players going to zero or less life simultaneously.

However, for the tournament, you'll be playing matches, so you'll just keep playing games until someone has won two. (I'm actually not 100% certain Arena implements that rule correctly, which I guess is another pointer to how rare this situation is.)

You can also agree to an intentional draw if you want to.

@DesTiny Depends on the format. If it's a format with a mill deck, pretty common. With just the intro decks, seems unlikely.

@IsaacKing Grave Matters (BG) is a self-mill deck, I think it can easily deck out if the game enters in a stalemate and the player isn't cautious
