I see this the other way around. Having acorns makes it so that you get more of what you need (whatever it is). There is enough redundancy in the list, not to mention a free mulligan, that having acorns in starting hand while also making the mulligan decision difficult should be extremely rare. You literally just need 2 ice (any) and 2 ruby shards to ensure the combo works. Any other cards in your hand are completely irrelevant (acorn or otherwise). From my limited testing so far, Acorns were just another card in the winning hands. However, when the first Ice backfires and I only had one, I was always glad to have Acorns around as they were strictly better than a Ruby shards when it mattered.
Either way, deck works fine regardless so have it however you like!
That's just my opinion, I guess it is down to what kind of chance you prefer to take, I just prefer to have better mulligans.
I tried Vennen ranger. 61 cards in total. 1 Xocoy, 4 Ruby Ice, 8 other Ices, 3 Acorns and the rest Ruby Resources. At the talent tree you have to avoid banes and take Chew Toy, Bonded for Life and Improvised Firebomb. Mercs are Spirit of Triumverate, Corporal Hadrian and Clatterclank. This deck wins T2 or T3 max. If you hit Ruby Ice, it's T2, if not, it's T3. Our extra charges help our Unblockable Pet reach enough attack to help Xocoy. Xocoy uses mobilize on Chew Toy, Improvised Firebomb stalls opponent if we go for T3 and gives two more damage. Usually I do not rush to Scutt but I also do the optional encounters cause I find this path more profitable with this speed of deck, plus it lowers up our Mega Bot forbthose extra damage. The unlucky scenario, is Scutt to use Scrap Bomb but still we have our pet. To conclude, I prefer this build vs the classic Ranger Farming build cause I find it faster and I use less clicks. ***( for Scrap bomb scenario I think we can use that merc that gives +1atk+1def - I haven't got him - or we can use a second Xocoy for the next turn, but then we need Spirit of Triumverate upgraded)
