My Most Hated Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s time for a very special Yu-Gi-Oh post! I’ve been playing the card game for many years now, and some cards make me infuriated. Now, prepare to rage, as we take a look at some truly vein-popping cards!

  • Sphere Kuriboh (aka Sphere Ebola) Type: Fiend/Effect Attribute: Dark 1 Star  ATK/ 300 DEF/ 200 Appearance: A shiny, spherical Kuriboh. Effect: When an opponent’s monster declares an attack: You can send this card in your hand to the GY; change the attacking monster to Defense Position. When you Ritual Summon a monster, you can banish this card from the GY as one of the monsters required for the Ritual Summon.

This $!@#!*#!*#!#^& card is the bane of my existence in Duel Links.  Everybody uses it, and its effect is one of the most annoying things to deal with. The ability to switch any attack monster into Defense Mode completely screws up your plan to end the duel quickly. It’s added Ritual effect is just a bonus on an already incredibly rage-inducing monster.

  • Denko Sekka Type: Thunder/Effect Attribute: Light ATK/ 1700 DEF/ 1000 Appearance: A beautiful, blue haired warrior. Effect: Cannot be Special Summoned. While you control no Set Spells/Traps, neither player can Set Spells/Traps nor activate Spell/Trap Cards that are Set on the field.

I have a love/hate relationship with this card. For starters, her effect is extremely potent, and can change the tide of the duel instantly. Unfortunately, if your opponent uses her, she becomes one of the most annoying cards in the game, being only able to be destroyed by monsters.

Awesome Places From Atlas Obscura (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new topic! Atlas Obscura is one of my favorite books of all time, and it’s chalk full of wacky and wild landmarks from around the world.  I’ve decide to share some of my favorites with you guys. I hope you enjoy it, so, let’s begin!

  • The Poison Garden Location: Alnwick, Northumberland Description: This dangerously gorgeous garden is home to some of the most lethal plants on the face of the Earth. The place is decorated with Skulls and Crossbones that worn THESE PLANTS CAN KILL! I have always wanted to visit this place because I’m a real fan of these plants. The garden is open from March to December.

  • The Jellyfish Lake Location: The Island of Palau Description: This small saltwater lake houses about a million jellyfish that bob up and down, feeding on plankton. The jellyfish don’t sting, and they make the entire lake gorgeous and mesmerizing.

New Hearthstone Expansion My Favorite New Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for a new Hearthstone post! As many of you probably know, the newest expansion, Rastakhan’s Rumble, comes out in a week. I have decided, as like before, to talk about some of my favorite new cards of the upcoming expansion. This expansion also has a brand new keyword called Overkill. Overkill occurs when you do damage to a minion that exceeds its health. There’s still some new cards yet to come out, and I will only be going over the ones that have been released. Expect a through review when I play around with the new cards. Now, let’s begin!

  • Immortal Prelate Mana Cost: 2 Class: Paladin Deathrattle Rarity: Epic Stats: 1 Attack and 3 health Effect: Deathrattle: Shuffle this into your deck. It keeps any enchantments.

This card is essentially Kingsbane as a minion. Kingsbane was a Rogue Legendary weapon that has this card’s effect. However, being a Paladin class card opens up a lot of options. The Paladin class has many fantastic spells that drastically increase a minion’s stats making this specific card extremely effective. I’m going to definitely make a deck surrounding this card. I really hope it sees play, because the effect seems very strong.

  • Hir’eek the Bat Mana Cost: 8 Type: Beast/Battlecry Class: Warlock 1 Attack and 1 Health Rarity: Legendary Effect: Battlecry: Fill your board with copies of this minion. 

This card reminds me a lot of the worm card from the Boomsday expansion. The ability to swarm your field with minions is always a good thing. Plus, if you manage to boost its stats before it gets on the board, your opponent will have a very difficult time dealing with it.

More Awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more awesome cards. Now, let’s Duel!

  • Apoqliphort Towers Type: Machine/Effect Attribute: Earth 10 Stars ATK/ 3000 DEF/ 2600 Appearance: A very cool looking giant mech with two large shields. Effect: Cannot be Special Summoned. Requires 3 “Qli” Tributes to Normal Summon/Set, it is unaffected by Spells/Trap effects and by activated effects from any monster whose original Level/Rank is lower than this card’s current level. All Special Summoned monsters lose 500 ATK and DEF. Once per turn: You can make your opponent send 1 monster from their hand or their side of the field to the Graveyard (their choice).

This insanely powerful monster was banned for a long time, and just recently is seeing play again. Not only does this card have extremely good stats, but is completely immune to anything that isn’t level 10 or higher. It can easily win you the game if played on turn one, and is still considered to be one of the most difficult cards to remove from the field.

  • Night Beam Type: Normal Spell Appearance: A transparent laser beam hitting a card with crosshairs. Effect: Target 1 Set Spell/Trap your opponent controls; destroy that target. Your opponent cannot activate the targeted card  in response to this card’s activation.

Although this is a normal Spell, its effect can be completely drastic to your opponent. The ability to destroy a Set card without worrying about negation is quite strong in today’s meta, and I suggest running 3 of these in your deck. The satisfaction of destroying part of your opponent’s plan is always a good feeling.

More Fascinating Mythical Creatures From Around The World

Hello fellow mythology lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating mythical creatures. I hope you guys are ready for some truly insane creations. Now, let’s begin!

  • Bubak: The Bubak is a fearsome creature of Czech mythology. It’s depicted as a scarecrow with a skeletal body and unsettling face. It essentially is the Bogeyman of Czechoslovakia. The Bubak has a cry that sounds like an innocent baby, and it uses this to lure in victims. It is said that it travels between the world of the dead and living in a cart pulled by black cats.

  • Peluda: The Peluda is extremely dangerous creature of French folklore. The beast has the head and tail of a snake, feet of a tortoise and the quills of a porcupine. The Peluda is said to have attacked La Ferte-Bernard during the medieval times. Its breath is highly corrosive, and can wither crops easily. It can also fire its quills like arrows, and is nearly invincible. Its only supposed weak point is its tail and parts of its neck.

Even More TV Tropes

Hello fellow media lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating tropes. Now, let’s begin!

  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: This is an extremely popular trope that’s used in numerous forms of media. The trope occurs when a chef or wannabe chef tries to combine ingredients that should NEVER go together. The result usually involves the consumer gagging, vomiting, or fainting. Some examples of this include; Soma’s devious combination of squid tentacles and peanut butter from Shokugeki no Soma. Soma is an amazing cook in the anime, with many of his dishes causing consumers to literally be in ecstasy. However, this dish causes the consumers to feel violated, and Soma brings this dish out when he wants to screw with people. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, cooking is a major part of the game. It not only is used to recover health, but some foods can even protect you from the harsh temperatures. Then, there’s the dubious food, a disgusting concoction that can be created if Link combines bugs and monster parts together. The result is a censored mix of disgustingness that only recovers one heart.

  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: You’re an all around good character in a video game, and then you’re given a mission that completely brakes your moral compass. Some examples of this include; Scribblenauts, where you can use a baby with steak attached to it to attract lions. In the incredibly fun and challenging Oregon Trail, your party goes through hell to get to Oregon. Death is extremely common, dysentary happens often, colds can be lethal, and it’s almost impossible to get to Oregon with the full crew.

Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome paintings. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Rainbow Acid by Larry Carlson Archival print on paper 

This is a very fascinating work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It is a mixture of detailed Realism and Carlson’s signature Surrealism. The painting is of two female figures with strange hairstyles. The leftmost woman has long, brown hair with flowers on each side, while the rightmost figure has black hair fashioned like a geisha. They also appear to be nude, and do not have any facial features. Instead of a face, the girls have a dark black void that seems to suck up anything that comes to close to it. There are also rainbow lasers shooting out of both face holes, giving the piece an eerie feeling. I really enjoy the work, and would love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Undiscovered Genius by Jean-Michel Basquiat Part of The Daros Suite of Thirty-two Drawings 1982-83 Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, crayon, charcoal, and pencil on paper. 

This is a wonderful work by “Amazing Artist”, Basquiat. As expected by the artist, the piece is truly unique, and has many fascinating qualities. It is covered with Basquait’s signature motifs like repeated words, abstract faces, and pseudo-realistic objects. The painting appears to take place in Mississippi during the first half of the 1900’s. We see a depiction of a slave ship, as well as the words “Africa” and “Black Country. There’s also a very detailed picture of an African American musician near the painting’s center. It’s a very unique work, and I’d love to hear your opinions on it in the comments’ section below.
