My favorite style of Magic The Gathering play is called “constructed”. I like either “standard” or “modern”. But Legacy and Vintage are beyond me (I’m a cheapskate, remember?). And I am not good at limited and drafting….
I generally mulligan….draw six different cards after the first draw…when I have no land or nothing worthy to play. Here’s the devotional bit….if I have 5 lands in hand, what are the odds of Mana flood? I have faith that there is NO WAY the next three turns are going to be all land….I mean, it could happen…(this IS a card game) But probably not.
What does this have to do with anything?
deck, ahem, “library” in Magic is like your Christian testimony. When the old devil tries to vex you away from the truth, you can think back on your life and say to him…”I remember when Jesus did this in my life, or did that in my life.” It is called “The Shield of Faith.” You can use it to protect yourself against the fiery arrows of Satan! You can rely on the things God has provided in you! You can have those experiences…that spiritual growth…always in mind.
But you have to keep your faith in those things. The Bible says you have to “Take Up” that shield of faith! Then swing that sword of truth!
