Feature

I, as well as some other users, have had to shuffle numerous(> 10) times to get a half way decent distribution of cards in the library. Most times, the cards are “chunking”, for lack of a better word, together. I have no idea what type of algorithm is being used, but one solution could be:

1: Assign UNIQUE values to each element/key in the data structure. These would be generate with a random function seeded with nanoseconds/cpu-clock/whatever
2: Sort by the assigned values with whatever is in your standard lib
3: Maybe run this multiple times per shuffle?

- Point being, it should only need to be called once… assuming it will represent the user genuinely shuffling their deck as they would in the real word(multiple times)
