Mana flood

Mana flood refers to the condition of having too many lands (either in play or in hand) and not enough spells.[1] Mana flood can be the result of an opening hand with too many lands, several consecutive land draws, or a combination of the two. A hand with too many lands, for example five, is often best mulliganed for a better distribution, and some casual variants of the mulligan are more forgiving of such draws. However, a deck which consistently experiences mana flood may need to run fewer lands. Even in a deck with a good mana curve, poor shuffling can result in clusters of lands in the deck, which can cause mana flood when the player hits them.
