I made a summary plot of the likelihood of drawing a specific card during your setup draw and first draw of the game. It takes into account deck size and number of cards in the deck. Here is a link. I have a few additions I am thinking of adding, but please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Why would you want to go below 50 cards ?
Also, a link to a xls is faster, and ploting 1-HYPGEOMDIST (0, 6, 3, 50) is not that hard...
What do you intend to add ? I know an excel speed sheet can pretty much become like a little software.
Also, the probability are in Zorbec's deckbuilder.

It should probably only go down to 50 to avoid confusion. Below 50 is only there for my curiosity.

I guess that's all just preference. Maybe I'll upload an xls in addition. Once you have a plot, though, I'm not sure what benefit an xls would provide. The advantage of a PDF is primarily quick access and compatibility. For example, it's a lot easier for me to open up this PDF on my phone than an xls file.

I've never used that deck builder. It sounds like it would be worth checking out. That would be a nice feature to have in such software. That being said, I find it useful to have a quick reference without the need to open up additional software. It also makes it much easier when I'm not at my PC. I also like to see the trend plotted graphically. Again, this is probably an issue of preference. Perhaps a deck builder is more appropriate for you.
