Last night I played a few sit-n-go's, and was able to take down one and get second in another. Overall I was getting what seems like a disproportionate amount of pocket deuces, mostly from a last position, and the pots were usually either limped or folded down to me.
So every time I raised. Luckily, no one ever 3-bet me.
Then I hit sets 3 times on the flop. I was also able to win against a short stack who went all in with ace high on the flop.
So did I just get lucky here? Should I always raise deuces? Or will my luck just run dry?

yes you did :P
I would raise Deuces in LP preferable with no limper.
In EP I fold. MP depends on table Dynamics but most likely I fold them aswell
Chance of seeing overcards OTF: 100%
therefor you Play those small pocket pairs for set value.
I would rather limp behind than raise because I don't want to build a pot with a Hand that is really hard to Play postflop if I don't hit a set.
If they fold, fine
Count your lucky stars. I was in 200 buy in tourney and was dealt low pocket pairs 9 times and two higher pair. Not one was real expensive to see flop. All missed on flop and came against all in so continuing was feudal I think i got pocket twos three times and threes twice. Good thing is you know when to get out unless he hits a higher set then your felted.
