Price-based rarity from New Blood packs

Yes, we all know that newly released cards are designated common, uncommon, or rare (or Ld). But I have a feeling it's more complicated than that. I've heard too many stories lately of people getting less-expensive rares in bunches, while more expensive rares remain elusive. Example: the guy who bought 30 NB packs only to get 5 copies of the priced-less-than-1k Todd (and zero of Kalindra). In my own experience, I got several copies of Klawz (a rare priced at about 1k in the market) from NB packs, and zero copies of another rare in NB at the time, X-0DUS (priced at over 40k).

So, my question is this: are the odds of receiving a certain card in a pack adjusted by the card's average selling price in the market?

If there truly is an algorithm that adjusts the true chances of finding a card based on its market price... well, actually I'd be okay with that, if said algorithm was transparent. But if players are buying packs thinking they have an equal chance of getting any rare when they actually don't, that is a swindler's deception, and the developers of UR should be ashamed of themselves.

If you've had a similar experience (or the opposite!), I'd like to hear about it.
