Card of the week: Future Perfect

Verse:  GConf April 2017, Dieter F Uchtdorf, Sun AM Sess

Text: “God knows you perfectly. He loves you perfectly. He knows what your future holds.”

Verse Rule: DISCARD 2: Seek any verse, then end your turn.
Sacrifice Cost: 2
Markers: Faith
Icons: FF

This “verse” is one of the Latter-Day voices set, and the text is taken from General Conference of April 2017. I loved hearing this reassuring quote in conference. It’s a chance to look forward into the future with faith that Heavenly Father loves me and has all prepared for me. While I still need to my part, it’s good to know that the path is there.

With that in mind, I made this verse able to reach “into the future” and pull forward another verse from your deck. This allows you to pull one of the verses needed for a combo to your hand.

This is an amazing ability, so I had to make sure that it had some limitations. First of all, It’s a DISCARD 2 rule. That means that you’ll have to discard a total of three verses to be able to seek one. Second, you’ll end your turn immediately after the play, so you’ll have to wait a turn to be able to use the verse you just drew.

All of that means that it’s a Power Verse. It’s a great one to include in just about an combo-based deck!

This verse may be found in the Latter Day Voices Booster Pack!

Card of the Week - The City on the Hill

Verse:  Matthew 5:14

Text: “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”

Verse Rule: Unique, ALSO, ABILITY: When you play any other verse, you may set another chosen verse into the same chapter.
Sacrifice Cost: 3
Markers: Pearl
Icons: Pearl

This scripture is a great one, where Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, tells his followers to go out and do good, and flavor the world (verse 13) or light it up (verse 15,16). The point is summed up in verse 16, to “glorify your Father which is in Heaven”. It’s interesting that we increase God’s glory by serving his children.

This card is a powerful one, that can really speed up your chapter-building. You play it, and from that point on, you set a verse every time you play a verse. That can accelerate things quickly.

To keep things from getting too out of hand, however, we made it unique, so that it can’t be played again. So, if your opponent plays it, close out the chapter it’s in as soon as you can, or play something that removes verses from the tabletop!

This verse may be found in the Scripture Mastery Set!

Card of the week: Show Me My Weakness

Verse:  Ether 12:27

Text: “And if men come unto me, I will show unto them their weakness.”

Verse Rule: You may reveal 2 other chosen verses with a sacrifice cost of 0 or 1 instead of sacrificing to play this verse.
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Trials
Icons: Faith Trials

Here's a Book of Mormon verse this week!
This verse goes on to assure us that when we humble ourselves, our weaknesses turn into strengths. This is one that has helped me many times throughout my life as I’ve faced my own weaknesses and challenges.

In game, this one allows you to drop a card for free, which can be a nice move in the play phase. That’s especially if you’re about to close out a book and receive some verses from your blessing stack!

This verse may be found in the Learning Game set and the Scripture Mastery Set!

Latter Day Voices, New Verses for April Conference!


Here are a couple of new verses for the "Latter Day Voices" set, from this past General Conference.

This first one is from my favorite talk, about how we should celebrate the diverse group that the church is. I love to listen Elder Holland. He always gives me hope.


This other one is from the Priesthood session. It was about serving in your church callings.

Verse Database: Looking Deep

Verse Database: Looking Deep
ID: PRO-SM-014 BSC SM2014 Learning

Verse:  OT, 1 Samuel 16:7

Text: “...For the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”

Verse Rule: EFFECT: Look at the top five verses of a chosen player's deck. Restack them on his/her deck in any order.
Sacrifice Cost: 2
Markers: Faith
Icons:   F  

It was kind of tricky finding an image for this one, but I’m really pleased with the one I found. It’s a pic of a person’s chest, or heart, but it’s not a drawing or an abstraction, but includes the dress and style of the person as well. We look at the face, the shirt, the suit, but God looks past that.

Combos, tips:  It’s actually a pretty powerful effect. You get to “look deeper”. In play, that means that you can know what’s coming, or you can bury an opponent’s good verse, or bring less valuable ones to the front.

Verse Rule: EFFECT: Seek: "Serve/Service/Servant"
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Strength

This is another really good seek verse. It could play really well in a preconstructed deck, as long as you make sure there are a lot of “service” texts available, like Helping Man, Helping God, or Which to Serve?

Verse Database: Know the Law

Verse Database: Know the Law
ID: PRO-SM-012 BSC SMLegacy Learning

Verse:  OT, Joshua 1:8

Text: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth”

Verse Rule: EFFECT: You may search your deck for another chosen verse with a "Law" Marker, and add it to your hand.
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Strength, Wisdom, Law
Icons: S W    

The early books of the Old Testament are often referred to as “The Law and The Prophets”. This verse is one of the great Prophets, Joshua, declaring the importance of the Law.

Many years and lives later, the Law would become twisted and overly important, and Jesus would fulfil the law and teach its deeper meaning.

Combos, tips:  This verse could be an important part of a Law deck, allowing you to seek another Law verse. See: Love Thy Neighbor, The Ninth Commandment, others
