Quote from user-31049290 »What do you guys think will happen to modern Burn if this new mulligan rule will be accepted? People can mulligan to leyline with almost 98% change to have it in opener.
Maybe go naya again with more creatures?
For Mythic Championship II in London, we're going to be trying out a new mulligan rule that we have been playtesting internally for some time. We believe the new rule smooths out opening hand decisions even more, though it certainly has some implications for formats like Modern.
The rule we'll be testing in London is as such: When you mulligan for the Nth time, you draw seven cards, then put N cards on the bottom of your library in any order.
So, for example, let's say you're taking your second mulligan of a game, what we often call a mulligan to five. You would draw seven cards, select two, and place those two on the bottom of your library in any order. Then you would decide whether to keep or mulligan again.
Burn, being low-variance, is definitely among the decks that benefit least from this proposed rule. However, Burn still has plenty of creatures and access to enchantment hate if necessary. I think graveyard-based decks are much more likely to get hated out by Leylines than Burn.
