Liar's Dice is one of my all-time favorite
party games. Incorporating the Liar's Dice mechanic into Magic is
easy. Say we have two players: Adam and Beth. During his upkeep, Adam
declares how much damage he can do that turn. Beth chooses either to
agree or to disagree. If Beth agrees with Adam, then that amount of
damage is subtracted from her life total immediately. For the remainder
of the turn, Adam can't do any damage to Beth. If Beth disagrees,
however, then Adam takes the rest of his turn as normal. If he succeeds
in doing the exact amount of damage that he declared, then Beth will
suffer that amount of damage again at the end of the turn. On the other
hand, if Adam is not able to do the exact amount of damage that he
declared, then Beth takes no damage that turn-instead, the amount of
damage Adam declared is subtracted from his own life total at the end of

the player wishes, until he has no cards left in his and. After the
participant, who plays first, mulligans as often as he likes, the
decision of whether to mulligan passes to the other player. Once a
player passes the opportunity to mulligan, that player may not change
