My Favorite Treasures/Passive Bonuses In The Dalaran Heist

Hello everyone, and welcome to a special Hearthstone post! This post will be going over the latest Solo Adventure in the game. The adventure is known as The Dalaran Heist, and has you playing as one of the villainous classes to take over the town. It’s divided into five chapters with many cool rules thrown into the mix. After winning two battles, you are given a choice of one of three treasures. These treasures are insanely overpowered, and would never get released in the original game. The following is a list of my absolute favorite ones. Now, let’s begin the heist!

  • Book of Wonders Type: Passive Bonus Mana Cost: None Appearance: A giant tome is arcane knowledge. Effect: Passive: At the start of the game, shuffle 10 ‘Scrolls of Wonder’ into your deck.

We start off this post with a variation of one of my favorite cards. Scrolls of Wonder, when drawn casts a random spell on random targets. It’s always funny to see what spell you cast, and adding ten of these makes games so much more unpredictable and awesome.

  • Wondrous Wisdomball Type: Passive Bonus Mana Cost: None Appearance: A glowing green ball with a happy Khadgar inside. Effect: Passive: Occasionally gives helpful advice.

Originally, I thought this was a complete joke, and tried to avoid using it at first. Then, I figured out this card’s multiple effects, and began to love it. Some of these effects include; Randomly taking an extra turn, freezing all enemy minions when you’re attacked, drawing an extra card, summoning multiple “Taunt” minions when your opponent summons one, filling your deck with ten random cards when taking “Fatigue” damage, and transforming one of your minions into a Legendary one.

  • Master’s Scheme Type: Spell, Treasure Uncollectable Mana Cost: 3 Appearance: A very cool looking mechanically locked book. Effect: Deal 1 damage. Draw 1 card. Gain 1 armor. Summon 1 Boom Bot. (Upgrades each turn!)

What we have here is an Ultimate Infestation on steroids! The amount of utility you can get from this card is ridiculous, and summoning large amounts of minions is always a good thing. Use this card, if you’re down on your luck, and you won’t be disappointed.

  • Robes of Gaudiness Type: Passive Bonus Appearance: An extremely elegant robe with multiple precious gems stitched into it. Effect: Passive: Your cards cost half, but you can only play two cards per turn. (Cost is rounded down.)

Lo’ and behold the most overpowered passive in the game! I actually managed to complete the last wing of the heist using this insanely awesome card.  The ability to play nearly every card for five mana is incredible, and the two card restriction is hardly an issue. You can easily speed run any campaign using this fantastic treasure !

Yu-Gi-Oh! Attributes Earth Edition (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. Starting today, every other Friday, I will be going over some interesting cards from each attribute. Today’s attribute is Earth, so, let’s get ready to rock and roll!

  • Marmiting Captain Type: Warrior/Effect Attribute: Earth 3 Stars Appearance: A captain chef testing his newest recipe. ATK/ 1200 DEF/ 400 Effect: When this card is Normal Summoned: You can shuffle 1 card from your hand into the Deck, then draw 1 card, then you can Special Summon it if it is a monster.

A highly played card in Duel Links, and a surprisingly good one at that. Don’t let the low stats fool you, the amount of potential you get at Special Summoning is pretty incredible. It can be used as a secret weapon, or a strong play in the early game.

  • Maxx “C” Type: Insect/Effect Attribute: Earth Appearance: A tiny luminous bunch of insects. ATK/ 500 DEF/ 200 Effect: During either player’s turn: You can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard; this turn, each time your opponent Special Summons a monster(s), immediately draw 1 card. You can only use 1 “Maxx C” per turn.

Ah good old Maxx C! This card is banned for a very good reason, and won’t be off the list for a very long time. Special Summoning monsters is one of the main things that the game is built upon, so the rewards for using this card are nearly endless. This could also make an Exodia Draw Deck extremely viable. Although this card is banned, many other “C Cards” exist, including a super cool Insect-Robot hybrid with some ridiculously potent effects.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 187 (Special 2 Parter!)

Divide By Zero/ Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides The Bomb To Hell by The Offspring from the album “Days Go By” Released: June 25th, 2012 Music Video Released: 2012 Genre: Punk Rock, Alternative Rock

These are the last 2 songs from the Days Go By album. They were both made into a continuous music video, that is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever laid my eyes upon! Dexter’s powerful vocals, Noodles’ aggressive guitar skills, and Parada’s awesome drumming really transform these pieces into rock gold. This first song, “Divide By Zero”,  tells the story of a solider in a futuristic war against an army of skeletal adversaries. There’s also a blue god of war and destruction that repeatedly changes sides to cause as much bloodshed as possible. Dexter essentially boosts morale throughout the song repeating the lyrics: “I will persevere, I will resist you here, I will interfere”. The intense chorus of instruments reminds me of a power metal ballad, and it’s fantastic! However, as the mood starts to change, the lyrics also take a turn into insanity. The suggestion to divide by zero might be metaphor for trying the impossible. This is shown in epic detail as the soldier, like Slim Pickens, at the end of Dr. Strangelove, rides a bomb to destroy the enemy and himself. After impact, “Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides The Bomb To Hell” starts up. Taking place right after the solider’s “death”, he finds himself in Hell. The lyrics in this piece are mainly about chaos and the world appears to be ending. We get verses like “Dance around the fire that we once believed in”, and “If you are gonna go to hell, drink it up, you might as well”. The world is in a state of never ending anarchy, you should just stop caring and enjoy the destruction. Both of this songs are absolutely amazing, and I definitely recommend them to lovers of Rock.
