I think RNG in digital card games is fine. Sometimes the luck is with you and other times it is not.

Most people think RNG is bad because we all have a natural disposition to think we are getting screwed by it. But on the other side, those times when RNG works exactly in our favour sweetens the victory so much more.

Used tactically it can be a great tool. A big risk versus a big reward.
