For this variant each player must bring an additional stack of twenty
cards with no duplicates. They
are shuffled together and set somewhere between the players. At the
beginning of every upkeep, flip up the top card of the center stack and
remove the previous up card from the game. Every card in every player's
hand is a split card - one half being the original, and the other half
being the current up card from the center stack that you can cast. If
the up card is a creature card, it is instead a sorcery that creates a
token identical to the original creature and enchantments and artifacts
would need extra copies of the card to represent them on the table.
Note: an alternate way to play with would be to make one deck for all players to share that has all 5 colors in it.

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 hand. 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 mind.
