Since I suspect this is part of a homework assignment I'm not going to give you the answer, but I will point you toward two functions that may be of interest to you. Take a look at the documentation pages for randperm and randi. Which one you want to use will depend on whether you want to draw cards without replacement (randperm) like you're dealing out a poker hand or with replacement (randi) like if a stage magician asks you to draw a card, look at it, and return it to the deck.
