In my current game of HIS, the Protestants failed at Reformation in all three of Leipzig, Magdeburg, and Brandenburg during the 95 Theses Phase, meaning they had no choice but to attempt Breslau and Prague (amazingly, they were successful there). Anyone had that happen before?

Not in a game I have seen.
Pretty unlikely

I've actually seen Prots get nothing on 95 Theses multiple times. It's not as bad as you might think, since such a failure virtually ensures that no one will bother them for a while.

That being said, it's still bad luck, and it's better to get an electorate to start off.

This is a good point. Timing and diplomacy are all in this game for me. A power that gets off to a great start is likely to feel attention (and armies / malignant card plays) turned its way sooner rather than later.

As the Prots I'd rather have a slow first turn, plead for sympathy (while highlighting how well the Pope is doing), and quietly get my game in gear ready for the Schmalkaldic League on turn 4 and the English Reformation thereafter.
