I think the "up to" wording is so that if you can't find the full number for some reason, you're still allowed to find as many as you can. Without that, it's all-or-none, but you still have the option to find none.

The only time you're forced to find cards is with something like Head Games that doesn't have any restrictions on the characteristics of the cards you're searching for.

Head Games in a Sen Triplets deck is awesome.

Head Games looks great for political decks! I always love the dynamic that multiplayer brings to the table.

Mind Twist: The OG mono-black x-spell is still powerful. I run it a couple decks, it's always a good draw.

Thought Distortion: Looks like a very powerful budget top-end card. Exiling a spellslinger's whole hand can be backbreaking.

The rest of the cards aren't exactly underplayed, but they're all still powerful.

Head Games - Politics, fun, and "mind games" all in one. Did I give my opponent his combo piece so you have to focus on him instead of me, or did I give him all lands? The world may never know....

Mirrorpool - Utility land which can copy g-wave, rishkar's expertise, a tutor, etc... way too much utility to ignore IMO. Coming in tapped sucks, but for the utility it provides, in midrange decks it finds a loving home

Nissa, Vital Force - Recursion, wincon and untapped cradle/nkythos. Note that its very close to it's ult already

Rude Awakening - Wincon or ritual. Even more fun with cradle! Add in deserted temple/thespians stage/vesuva to make it more fun

Mind Twist - Mess over 1 player, at random makes it more painful. Its easy counter bait against blue

Thought Distortion - A very powerful silver bullet for my meta. Blue really does destroy our hopes and dreams. Note, it is also a form of grave hate!

Worst Fears - Never underestimate how powerful taking someone's turn can be. Putting their commander in grave/exile, destroying their own board, etc.... so much potential. In black we ramp anyways.

Sword of the Animist - For mono red and white decks that want lands

Ignite the Future - Draw, flashback is great!

Humble Defector - Politics, fun with Homeward Path

K1ngMars, thanks for the suggestions, I like them a lot! Added all 3 to the deck. Head Games looks like an amazing troll card, can't wait to see it in action.

As a Meren player (only sometimes) I like this concept a lot! I suggest Yasharn, Implacable Earth, Withered Wretch (the OG yard remover). Moreover, just to be mean, what about Head Games?

Head Games and Jester's Mask are about as fun of interactions as you can get with Triplets. You'd probably also like something like Telepathy, then maybe a Peek along with your Git Probe to serve as a cantrip and get you info. Could also run Zur's Weirding to cause some chaos at the table. Not only will people be worried about whoever is drawing the card getting to use it, but they also have to worry about you as well.

Oh and you have two Mirrormades.

Hope this helps! :^)
