What’s the Play? – 5 Scenarios

Today I’m going to do a “What’s the Play” type article where I present you with some situations and a couple of options, and you vote on the one you think is right. Then, at a later date, you get to see the results of the poll and my answer.

Situation #1

You’re playing a B/G Winding Constrictor deck that splashes blue for The Scarab God. You’re on the play against an unknown opponent, and this is your opening hand:

Situation #2

You’re playing the B/R mirror, post-board. You’re on the draw.


Situation #3

You’re playing Grixis Midrange, and you’re on the draw against an unknown opponent. They lead with Forest and Llanowar Elves. What’s your turn 1 play? (Ignoring the discussion on whether this is a keep or not—I don’t think it is, for whatever that’s worth.)

Situation #4

You’re playing Mono-Blue Paradoxical Outcome and you’re on the draw against an unknown opponent. They lead with Forest and Llanowar Elves (always). You keep a one-lander (again, ignore whether it’s right to keep or not, but I think this time I’d keep), brick turn 1, and play your Zhalfirin Void. You see Renegade Map.

Situation #5

You’re playing an average R/W Aggro deck in M19 Draft—you have a bunch of creatures, some removal, and some mass pump effects. Your deck has nine Mountains and eight Plains in it. You’re on the play against an unknown opponent, and you mulligan to 6. You keep this hand, scry, and see a Mountain.

Do you keep the Mountain on top?

So, what would do? Vote in the polls or write a comment here, and check out my answer in a following article soon!
