Answer: 1 / 658,008

Since all 40 cards are different and order does not matter, we must choose 5 cards out of 40. We use the formula 40! / (35! * 5!) to give us the number of combinations. (n! means n*(n-1)*(n-2)*...*3*2*1.) This gives (40*39*38*37*36) / (5*4*3*2*1), which gives 658,008 combinations. There is only one combination that consists of all five pieces of Exodia, so the odds of starting off with it are 1 / 658,008.
