"As a side note, this re-draw is commonly called a mulligan, but I think we should change the name of it after Matt Hyra, who invented the concept of a TCG mulligan many years ago, Matt also happens to be our lead board game designer. Maybe we call it a Hydration? Hmmm… need to think about that"

What other suggestions can the community dream up?

Tumble
Brainstorm
Reload

I think you missed the joke. Matt Hyra is similar to Hydration.

But a new name could be fun. Rotate. Mixer. Happy fun time.

Nevermind, my ideas suck.

I've been trying to think of something, and I'm coming up blank. Sadly, the two best I have are Mattigan and Redraw. (Sure, Redraw is a little obvious and lacks creativity, but...I got nuttin else.)

Malligan.

(But seriously, I'm more in favor of not renaming it at all - everybody (TCG-wise) knows what "mulligan" is right from the beginning.)

I would like something that is connected to lore. Something connected to meteor as source... like

Rain of Gems

Afterfall ( that would be probably my pick )

As much as I love this now, I am sure I will hate it later. But god, does it make my day.

+1 for fish hand!

"Damn I only got one shard... I'd better take a fish hand."

Also opens up for the term "Aggressively fish handing" in say combo decks xD

Shatter where in multiple mullingans would be shatters and the player would be shattering because of the bad draws ;j

Nice I still like the idea of putting the word into context -

I am going to Tumble (this hand).
I need to take a Tumble.
The Tumble to 5 cards probably cost him the game.
He Tumbled to 5 cards and staged a remarkable comeback thanks to turn 4 Fist.
OMG he is Tumbling again surely this will hurt his chances.
An interesting match in-store then as each player Tumbles to 6.
Read my strategy guide on Tumbling decisions in HEXTCG.
Events can be decided on which player is the best Tumbler.
To pilot the deck well you have to be an aggressive Tumbler.

ETC...
