Perfect hits off Glimpse of Tomorrow: TBD*

*It is admittedly a considerably more difficult task, for this weary and cursed inoculated man, to construct the precise hypergeometric model right now that is necessary to calculate the odds of perfect hits off a 4-permanent Glimpse of Tomorrow. But a cursory glance of even the most casual observer will show that it is very unlikely, especially when one considers that one of the hits was a 1-of color hoser.

Conclusion:

As per usual, a veritable David vs. Goliath story of variance, pitting the worst possible hits (drawing only uncastable spells) against the best possible hits. Nothing unusual in my book of 0.006% and 0.001% unlucky occurrences.

Of course, since so many of the most recent banned cards are pet cards of mine that I like to play, I wonder if I should give such a card as Glimpse of Tomorrow the "Cloudpost treatment" - playing it myself and adopting it as my own in order to expedite its ban, because it is less cared about otherwise (as I had done with Cloudpost). However, playing such a card conflicts with my vision of MTG, as I prefer to play a chess-style strategy game rather than infuse the game with even more variance than it already has with more whimsical coin flips. Which is a shame, since the last time I played with a powerful no-mana cost suspend card, it received enough scrutiny to get a ban.

The laws of nature determine that even shortness has limitations: nothing can be shorter than a Planck length. Similarly, given that such a length also reflects the short-end of the RNG stick that fate consistently places me on, foreshortening anything further would be impossible.
