My LGS uses the Partial Paris still, we've discussed it a loooooooong time ago, and are in agreement that we'll explain Partial Paris to any new comers.



Partial Paris...I hate partial paris with a fiery passion. What a load of Junk. Built for combo players and 4-5 color decks that run not enough mana fixing cards.

Maybe someone planning to Tunnel Vision themselves to mill their library? Its a stretch.

There's probably a deck that could do that and I'd love to see it happen.

In most other cases (read in Wimp Lo's voice): "Ha-haa! I put all my best cards on the bottom, making me the victor!"

Tunnel Vision is a thing, sure, but you're gonna have to not search for anything while you're getting to that 6 mana.

I had to look this reference up. Freaking Steve Odenkirk. I expect nothing less from the creator of Batthumb.

Do we know yet ... In multiplayer, is the first mulligan still "free" under the London rules?

While a pretty common house rule, I am 99.8% sure there is no such thing as an official free mulligan.

No. It was an official rule. Under the current (about to be old) Vancouver mulligan, and before that the Paris mulligan, it was written into the Comprehensive Rules that in multi-player, the first mulligan is free.

In fact, at the Pre-releases, at the sanctioned Two-Headed Giant events, the first mulligan has been free.

I'm wondering if it is still going to be part of the official rule. I haven't seen that part anywhere.

The free mulligan in multiplayer is an official rule. It's 800.5, found in the general multiplayer rules section
Quote:
800.5 In a multiplayer game, the first time a player takes a mulligan, they draw a new hand of as many cards as they had before. Subsequent hands decrease by one card as normal.

It's going to need rewording but there's no sign it's going away.

I personally like the new mulligan rule because it creates more worthwhile games where skill rather than luck ultimately decides who wins. I don’t know about anyone else, but when my opponent loses because of mana screw or flooding out it’s a hollow victory. I feel a little bad for Vintage players though because they apparently Dredge is set to take over the format now. But that is a sacrifice I’m willing to make :mrgreen:
