Yokai Wednesdays

Konichiwa everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Shinigami are extremely popular creatures of Japanese folklore. The Anime, Death Note, portrays on of these creatures as a main character. It essentially is a death spirit that possesses the living, and suicidal. They’re depicted as corpse-like humanoids with horrifying features. They influence people to become obsessed with death, and they eventually take their own lives or meet death in a very unpleasant way.

  • Tenko are immeasurably powerful creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re the highest ranked Kitsune (Fox Spirits), and use their powers for good. These foxes are usually depicted as gorgeous human-like goddesses with golden fur and four tails. Humans worship them as gods, and they will grant favors to those in need.

More Awesome Cards From Saviors of Uldum

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for the second look at the new expansion. Some absolutely insane cards have been released, and the expansion keeps looking better and better. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • King Phaoris Type: Legendary Neutral Minion Mana Cost: 10 Appearance: The ancient king of cats. Attack: 5 Health: 5 Effect: Battlecry: For each spell in your hand, summon a random minion of the same cost.

This is a card that I incredibly excited for. I’ve said on multiple occasions that I love the randomness of cards, and this one fits that to a T! The amount of value you can get out of this is ridiculous, and running a spell-heavy deck will get you very far with this card.

  • Siamat Type: Legendary Neutral Minion Tribe: Elemental Mana Cost: 7 Appearance: A powerful and epic genie. Attack: 6 Health: 6 Effect: Battlecry: Gain 2 of Rush, Taunt, Divine Shield, or Windfury (your choice).

Another amazing legendary card that has multiple uses. First, you can use it to stall out your opponent by creating a huge wall. Second, you can create an aggressive attacker that can do heavy damage. I can imagine many decks built around this fantastic card.

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

  • Penelope’s Tapestry by Rene Magritte 1943 Gouache on paper 

This is an absolutely beautiful work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It takes a unique turn from pure Surrealism, and adds Realism to the mix. It’s an outdoor piece with a misty sky and old fashioned houses. We also get a brilliant blend of snowy blue and green grass. The center of the piece houses a snowy tree, and it blends extremely well with the grass. Near the right side of the work, we see another tree, however, this one is green and planted in rich grass. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Awesome New Cards From Saviors of Uldum

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! The newest expansion is coming out August 6th, and the new cards look absolutely incredible. As of now, 47 out of the 135 cards have been released, and I definitely have some favorites. Expect a much more thorough review when the expansion comes out. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • BEEEES!!! Type: Druid Common Spell Mana Cost: 3 Appearance: A goblin about to be devoured by a massive swarm of bees. Effect: Choose a minion. Summon four 1/1 bees that attack it. 

First of all, I love the Wicker Man reference of this card. Second, the effect is super unique, and can lead to many wonderful combos. If you combine this card with Knife Juggler or Addled Grizzly, chaos ensues, and your opponent will never see it coming.

  • Wild Bloodstinger Type: Hunter Epic Minion Tribe: Beast Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 6 Health: 9 Effect: Battlecry: Summon a minion from your opponent’s hand. Attack it. Appearance: A giant crab-like beast with huge claws.

Jesus Christ! This card is absolutely amazing! Its stats are extremely good, and its effect has been done before. The ability to disrupt a combo piece by attacking it before it can even be played is insane, and I can see whole decks being built around this mechanic.

  • EVIL Recruiter Type: Warlock Common Minion Mana Cost: 3 Appearance: A blonde-haired elf with evil arcane power. Attack: 3 Health: 3 Effect: Battlecry: Destroy a friendly Lackey to summon a 5/5 demon.

This card has some much value for 3 mana, and the effect is really close to being broken. You essentially get a 3 cost 8/8, and the combos with it are immense.

Attribute Lab: Light Edition

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh post! This week, we will be covering Light Attribute Monsters. Light Monsters are extremely versatile, and many different decks have been built around them. Some of the most famous decks are Blue Eyes and Fairies. I’m going to go into some overlooked cards, and show you some awesome combos you can do with them. Now, let’s Duel!

  • Consecrated Light Attribute: Light Type: Fairy 1 Star Appearance: A cute circular fairy with a radiating light. ATK/ 0 DEF/ 0 Effect: Neither player can Normal or Special Summon DARK monsters or declare an attack with a DARK monster. This card cannot be destroyed in battle with a DARK monster, also you take no damage from that battle.

This awesome card is a sure fire counter to any DARK deck. The multi-purpose DARK negation is extremely fun to pull off, and can anger many opponents. Also, its low level makes it very viable for Synchro Summoning.

  • Super Conductor Tyranno Attribute: Light Type: Dinosaur Effect 8 Stars Appearance: An awesome looking dinosaur with heavy armor. ATK/ 3300 DEF/ 1400 Effect: Once per turn: You can Tribute 1 monster; inflict 1000 damage to your opponent. You cannot declare an attack the turn this effect is activated.

Here we have one of the most powerful 2 Tribute cards in the game. It has a higher attack than Blue Eyes, and its burn effect is pretty cool as well. Run this in an aggressive Dinosaur deck, and you won’t be disappointed.
