Many men and women who follow God sing songs about and make music for God’s glory and faithfulness. Many such people, most notably David, are noted throughout the scriptures as examples of their faith in and worship of their God.  These are praisers, and some of these praisers are musicians. When King Solomon dedicated the first Temple (which is commonly referred to as Solomon’s Temple), he commissioned musicians to help consecrate it to God. In doing so they helped to usher in the presence of God, which filled the Temple. There are also those noted in the scriptures who chose to rebel and complain against God. Unfortunately, the continuous sins of those rebellious Israelites eventually led to Solomon’s Temple being corrupted with idol worship.  This Contender Deck displays a picture of the musicians—the “praisers”—who worshipped God by their faith and music, and the “complainers” who chose not to worship God but to complain and rebel against Him. Let both serve as examples to us and for us to choose to be a praiser and not a complainer!

Deck tips and strategies:

  • The offense focuses on cards that involve music, whether they’re heroes or Enhancements. Many of these cards can be recurred, are CBN, and can be searched for.
  • The defense has specific abilities that help make the defense unpredictable and formidable.
  • Chenaniah and The Twenty-Four Elders banded together is a powerful rescuing option as Twenty-Four Elders negates evil cards when you shuffle one of your several artifacts, and your combined strength will be very high, giving you breakthrough power to overwhelm your opponent’s defensive toughness.
  • Recur your good Enhancements that involve music with Ethan and Music Leader. Music Leader can also target all of your heroes when your opponent uses a draw or search ability.
  • Covenant with David can target Treacherous Land, Solomon’s Temple, David, the Psalmist or The Fallen King.
  • Due to cards such as Solomon’s Temple, and Corrupted Temple, Transgressors, you’ll be able to have several artifacts active at one time.
  • Be shrewd with your side battle enhancement, Brother’s Conflict, by using Idol Worship to capture your opponent’s blocker or Korah’s Rebellion to banish the blocker(s); or, when used as an evil Enhancement, use Strife to withdraw all heroes, except the one you control.
  • Use the evil side of “Today” in combination with the heroes that were set aside by “Shame” Lost Soul or Daughter’s Grief, or use the good side to convert an evil human. Also, the evil side can be played off of False Leaders and can also be recurred by Ethan or Music Leader.
  • The Amalekite’s Slave, Idol Worship, and Warning Against Rebellion are a great way to generate lost souls for you to rescue. Additionally, Ethan and Music Leader can recur Warning Against Rebellion.
  • Reserve accessing cards: “Foreigner” Lost Soul, Covenant with David, Treacherous Land, Miriam, The Fallen King, Transgressors, Profane Daughters, False Leaders, Accursed of God, Idol Worship.
