This is the second statement made that it is ok to search your lost pile at
whim (lost pile being trash or frag pile). My problem with the idea, is
that, even though we are all honorable and would never think of cheating,
the possibility that you might accidently lean towards that direction
Of course, the cards that allow you to get cards back out of the trash
(i.e. squatter and chop shop), is not the issue I'm debating. However,
forgetting if you have a decent card to get in trash and looking through it
before paying the cost of the card could be abused. For example, if I've
got four mages in my deck, and I know I lost a bunch of them, but I'm not
sure if I lost all of them, I could just simply search my trash to find
out. This could make a difference because I would trash all the spells I
had in my hand in order to pick up better cards if all the mages were
trashed, but if I knew I still had one left in my deck, especially if
there's only a few cards left, hell, I'll keep those cards.
I know the trash gets recycled, so in the long run, it probably won't
matter. Yet, I can see some instances where the "knowledge is power."
