Martyrs / Romans

Martyrs / Romans

Ten of Jesus' 12 disciples were martyred as He was, and many more were also killed as the Early Church began and grew. Many of these killings were by the Romans, who ruled over Israel for hundreds of years beginning in about 63 B.C. Some Christians were famously killed by lions as part of Coliseum games. Martyrdom is a dark theme throughout the history of humanity from the Fall to the end-times, although in the game of Redemption, martyrs are Christians who were killed after Jesus' death.

Deck strategy and tips:

  • Antonius Felix's protect ability still functions even with Coliseum out because his ability is CBP (cannot be prevented).
  • Blinding Light and Preaching in the Synagogue will convert Saul to Paul, who then is one of the most powerful Heroes in the game!
  • Preaching in the Synagogue is CBN (cannot be negated) with Stephen in battle.
  • Guardian of Your Souls works well with this deck to keep lost souls in play due to the Martyrs theme.
  • I Am Love can recur Faith of Moses' Parents and play it.
  • Watch out for Nero's site discard ability, as it will discard your own Fortress of Antonia! But the "Far Country" Lost Soul can recur it.
  • Maximize your hand-control cards like Denarius, Birthing Pains, Emperor Domitian, etc. to force your opponent to discard from hand!
