    Mulligan is a sports term that means, basically, you are giving someone a do-over.

    It originated in Golf when, if someone took a shot that was so absolutely lousy, you would let them take the swing over again.

    It was adopted in card games, especially Magic, to mean a re-draw of the opening hand.

    While the term does not belong to WotC, it is associated with them in TCGs and so PUI wishes to get away from using this term in their organized play.

    on pokemon terms, if a player does not have any basic pokemon in their starting hand of 7 cards, they mulligan, that is, they shuffle their hand into their deck, and draw 7 new cards. this process is repeated untill the player has atleast 1 basic pokemon in their starting hand.
    each time a player mulligans, their opponent may opt to draw an extra card.

    Is it PUI that you shuffle your hand before drawing the next 7 cards? There are some clubs where you draw the next 7 without shuffling in first ( reduces abUSE).
