    the most common method is by rolling a die, but you can do anything from flipping a coin to playing paper, rock, scissors.

    Any random method works. For each following game with the same players using the same decks, the loser of the last game chooses.

    I don't like that method, because it's not well randomised.

    Because it favours the deck with the higher average converted mana cost, or with less lands. It's only truly random if the cards in the two decks have exactly the same converted mana cost, card for card.
