Allowing a player to have another shot off the tee without penalty. Not something allowed in tournament play but some friendly games will determine a number of "mulligans" per round before the round begins. My guess is somebody, way back when, named Mulligan, liked to take another shot if he was dissatisfied with the first. Probably a high ranking land owner playing with his subordinates, so no one argued with him.

In CCGs, a mulligan rule lets you redraw your opening hand if it doesn't meet some preset criteria, such as "you do not draw at least 1 card of type X." Sometimes there is a penalty associated with the redraw. Shadowfist has no mulligan rule: on your first turn, you aren't generating any Power, so you can discard as many cards as you like, and then refill your hand as usual. There's your mulligan for you.
