And snow stakes and pickets (like MSR Coyote) are different things.
You do not want to carry a quiver of pickets (or flukes) just to anchor your tent.

No one suggested a 'quiver' of them, but two or four to add additional anchorage to a 2-4 man expedition tent is pretty common, especially if you don't have skis. This is in addition to the 8-10 regular tent pegs holding your tent down. For a snowy expedition like Denali those 8-10 pegs are best i they're the relatively wide aluminum kind, not the toothpicks that come with most tents.
Deadmen/flukes, of any size, are rarely used anywhere. Anything buried like that is a pita to dig out after a few days, and in the case of 17K camp on Denali, you may not be able to dig deep enough to bury one anyway.
