The New Mulligan rule in EDH

city of shakar

I am about fifteen games or so deep into the new mulligan rules, in paper and online (on Cockatrice). In case you haven’t caught up, EDH has left the old Partial Paris mulligan rules – that is, draw 7, set aside any number of those, draw up to 7 again, repeat as wanted, drawing one card fewer than set aside each time after that. These days, we mulligan like any other multiplayer format – if we’re unhappy with the first 7, we shuffle again, draw 7, then 6, then 5 and so on and Scry 1 if we end up with less than 7 cards.

In my local paper metagame, there were a few players who voiced concerned that this would lead to more mana screws, myself included in this group.

However, after these first dozen-plus games I haven’t had any serious troubles due to mulliganing badly. What are your experiences? Leave a comment!

    I like it so far. I’ve not played a lot of games since the rule change, but I’ve not yet had any major problems with the “new” mulligan rules. It also adds a new layer of decision making to the beginning of the game, which is good in my opinion.
