We had most of the people from our playgroup gather for the California State Redemption tournament that met on June 25th and 26th and I would like to share my experience during the tournament and the impact the new set had.
Throughout the Bible, Babylon is the primary city representative of the world of sin and Satan’s kingdom. Indeed, in Isaiah 14, the chapter describing Lucifer’s fall, he is referred to as “The king of Babylon” (v.4)! From Genesis 10-11 (Nimrod and the Tower of Babel) to Revelation 17-18 (the Harlot Babylon), Babylon is the city of organized, corporate revolt against God and His Kingdom.
In Redemption, the main focus of Babylonian cards is on the exile of Judah in 586 B.C. by the Babylonian forces led by King Nebuchadnezzar. Because of the Israelites’ unrepentant rebellion against God, the Lord allowed Babylon to destroy the magnificent Solomon’s Temple and capture the Israelites in the southern kingdom (the northern kingdom of Israel had already been exiled by the Assyrians in 721 B.C.).
One of my favorite things to do with each new expansion is try to find older cards that become more valuable, based on interactions with newer cards. Sapphira (from the Women’s expansion, and also later in the G/H decks) is one such card. Crimson received several new single-color evil Enhancements in The Early Church (TEC) expansion I’d like to highlight.
