    no the most you can have is four of the same card (except for basic lands which you can have as many as you want)

    In Constructed formats (that's any format where you bring your own deck to use), 4 is the maximum number of any card besides basic lands. Remember, the banned/restricted list for a given format may further restrict the amount of a card you can have. Here's a link that shows you the various banned/restricted lists: Banned / Restricted Lists for DCI-Sanctioned Magic: The Gathering Tournaments : Resources : Trading Card Game : Magic: The Gathering

    In Limited play, where your deck is made at the event using booster packs that you open (so, Sealed/Draft), you can have as many of a given card that you'd like, if you happen to get more than 4. Given the random distribution of packs, however, the odds that this will happen aren't very high for the most part.

    Haha...damn. Though, to be fair, Coldsnap was a smaller set. Also, drafting significantly improves your odds of getting higher numbers of cards, since you see a much higher number of packs compared to the mere 6 you open in Sealed play.
