Magic: the Eternal Struggle
This variant on magic, “Magic: The Eternal Struggle,”
incorporates some of the rules from Vampire: the Eternal Struggle ©.
Avid Magic players who have always wanted to learn Vampire may find this
variant to be not only enjoyable but helpful as well. The Vampire rules
add more strategy and decision-making elements to the game, effectively
making it less a game of chance and more a game of skill.
“Paris” Mulligan is used for this variant.
Before each game begins, a player may, for any reason,
reshuffle and redraw his hand, drawing one less card. This may be repeated
as often as 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 his
Keep in mind;
if you take a mulligan down to 6 or less cards then, for the remainder of the
game you will only have 6 or less cards in your hand.
