Thread: One free re-draw

  1. #1

    One free re-draw

    I'm not gonna get into program randomization and all that.
    I just think it would be best if the first time you re-draw your hand at the start of a game, you don't lose 1 card.

    It's loved for those games

    where that first hand screws you out of a single resource, and then it all goes downhill.
    Also, finding an edit button on this forum would be nice. lol

    Not a big fan of the free mulligan. I think it allows decks to exploit being starved for resources because it's easier to get a good hand--a leg-up for low-cost aggro decks.

    The free mulligan isn't usually a feature of MTG either--Duels of the Planeswalkers arbitrarily added it to tilt the odds in the player's favor. Subtle game design trick; people like winning, so designers give players the advantage in single-player games to keep them happy.

    If your deck build is solid, a double-mulligan should be very rare.

    I think a change like that would be great for a difficulty setting in PVE.

    One free mulligan if your initial hand contains no resources sounds fine to me.

    Even if your deck is around 1/3 resources, you'll be seeing a hand of no resources every 20 ish games.

    Tonight I got a hand with 0 resources in a typical 26/60 deck. It happens. I'm strongly against any changes to the mulligan system.

    I would only like to see this appear in PvE, with the ability to turn it on/off.

    If your deck is 2/3 non resources, and you have a hand of seven cards.

    Your chances of drawing zero resources are 40/60 * 39/59 * 38/58 * 37/57 * 36/56 * 35/55 * 34/54

    Which works out to around 5%. Which is one per 20 games.

    If you have the standard proportion of resources (so in limited thats like 40%-45%) and draw 0,1,6,7 resources - you should be granted a free mulligan, and if you accept your opponent should get a free one too if they wish. That's what I would propose.
