sylvannos on Worst/Craziest Mulligans You Ever Made?

1 week ago

Took a mulligan to 3 cards at FNM playing R/G/u Tron. I kept getting no-land hands. After shuffling vigorously, I draw my three cards which were were Ancient Stirrings, Chromatic Star, and Urza's Tower.

Turn one: play Urza's Tower and Chromatic Star.

Turn two: Draw Urza's Mine, activate Chromatic Star, draw Urza's Power Plant, play Ancient Stirrings, reveal Karn Liberated.

Turn three: Play Karn Liberated, exile Kiln Fiend (I'm at something like 4 life).

Turn four: Draw and play Wurmcoil Engine -> proceed to victory.

The top decks were absolutely nuts.

I've mulliganed to four playing Tron before and won, but that was the first time I'd won going that low.

The other ridiculous win I had was playing Jund Blitz back in RtR-Theros Standard versus Mono-Black Devotion in top 4 of a $100 cash prize tournament. I had gone down to 4 cards after seeing several no-land or all-land hands.

If I remember right, the four cards were Overgrown Tomb, Rakdos Cackler, Firefist Striker, and Dreg Mangler. I draw the needed lands two turns in a row and curved out perfectly. So it looked like:

Turn one: Overgrown Tomb -> Rakdos Cackler

Turn two: Draw land, attack with Rakdos Cackler, play Firefist Striker.

Turn three: Draw land, play Dreg Mangler, trigger battalion so Pack Rat can't block, drop my opponent to 11. On his turn, he plays scry land and passes.

Turn four: Draw Ghor-Clan Rampager, swing with everyone, trigger battalion again, bloodrush for 11 damage even.

The scry land coming into play tapped is what killed him. He showed me his hand (not to mention Pack Rat's ability), which was Herald of Torment, Hero's Downfall, Desecration Demon, and Nightveil Specter.

May I suggest a few cards:Buttalion Creatures

Skyknight Legionnaire Is a nice card with some abilities that can allow you to put on damage.

Firefist Striker Gives you some pseudo-evasion against a big blocker or a deathtoucher.

Truefire Paladin Why not? Good abilities, Activated and Passive.

Highspire Mantis Why the fuck not. Evasion, Trample, Holyshit this does work.

Akroan Hoplite A bunch of attackers and this gets big. FAST.

Crusader of Odric More creatures? MORE BUFF.

One may consider some heroic bullshit in this deck

Akroan Crusader Makes 1/1 reds with haste. Good for flooding the board.

Phalanx Leader Buffs all your creatures with +1/+1 tokens each time it is targeted.

General Army Buffs

Iroas, God of Victory Allows your Battalion to attack with out fear of dying. This is VERY NICE.

Heliod, God of the Sun Gives your guys vigilance.

Purphoros, God of the Forge IDK. Make tokens, do damage i guess. Impact Tremors Does the same thing I guess.

Maybe consider an Ajani? IDK planes walkers are fun. Ajani Steadfast Or Ajani, Caller of the Pride Is a possibility. Gideon Jura has a hilarious ability where he can cause all your opponents non vigilance creatures to tap. its too good.


Launch the Fleet LOL i love this spell for flooding the board. Tokens.

Raise the Alarm Tokens.

Burn/ Removal

Oblivion Ring Duh.

Nevermore Fuck their commander unless they have removal.

Journey to Nowhere Lawl.

Boros Charm 4 damage of Yippie.

Deflecting Palm Akkido at its finest.

Interesting deck! To increase competitive potential, you may want to go up to 4 copies of Firefist Striker, Frontline Medic, Firemane Avenger, and maybe Akroan Hoplite. Also, maybe switch the Boros Guildgates for Wind-Scarred Crags (strictly better).

If at ant point your budget for this deck is higher, Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are almost battalion triggers on their own.

Swamp_Thing on Gruul Unblockable - $25 Budget

Hammerhand, Barrage of Boulders, Firefist Striker, and maybe Goblin Heelcutter seem good if you're leaning towards the unblockable side. Just suggestions.

Instants I would cut -

  • Riot Control and Holy Day. Since most matchups you will likely be the aggro deck, you will want to put more pressure on them and just kill their creatures with things like bolt/path.

Creatures I would cut -

I also might take out Firefist Striker and Frontline Medic and move them to the SB for creature-based matchups, but I think that one is up to you.
