More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a brawl!

  • Fire and Forgive by SgtGoat Type: Paladin Rare Spell Appearance: A mage getting blasted with holy fire. Mana Cost: 8 Effect: Deal 8 damage to all minions. Give the survivors +4/+4.

Another wonderful high-risk high-reward card that I could see being played in a Buff-Paladin deck. The cost is pretty high with 8 damage, but if you can survive, you’ll become extremely powerful.

  • Pyramad by ?? Type: Shaman Legendary Minion Tribe: Elemental Appearance: A very cool looking golem. Mana Cost: 6  Attack: 5 Health: 5 Battlecry: Transform your Totems into 0/5 Desert Obelisks.

This card has wonderful swarming synergies, and could finally make the Desert Obelisks playable. The obelisks deal five damage to a random enemy and the end of your turn. However, this effect only occurs when three of them are on the field. With this card, and the multiple totems in the Shaman’s repertoire, pulling this off is quite an easy feat.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a brawl!

  • Honeyshaker by Lucious Type: Druid Minion Rarity: Epic Mana Cost: 3 Attack: 0 Health: 7 Appearance: A fearsome looking bee cyborg filled with honey. Effect: At the end of each turn summon a 1/1 bee to attack a random enemy.

This is an incredibly unique card that really works with the Druid class. Beees! was a very good card in the most recent expansion, and this works as minor version of that spell. It also has very even stats, making it quite playable in this meta. Great job Lucious!

  • Smolderon, the Infernal by DragonicDoom Type: Shaman Minion Rarity: Legendary Tribe: Elemental Mana Cost: 10 Attack: 2 Health: 4 Appearance: An ultra cool skeletal infernal. Effect: Battlecry: Cast Meteor. Deathrattle: Cast Volcano.

This minion packs a serious punch! Not only is its Battlecry target 3 creatures, but its Deathrattle is literally a board clear. The heavy mana cost is definitely needed, as the effects alone are incredibly potent.

More Awesome TV Tropes

Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post. I hope you guys are ready for some awesome knowledge. Now, let’s begin!

  • Random Encounters: A widely used trope in various RPGS. It occurs when the party runs into a random horde of enemies. This can happen with or without warning. Some examples include; Final Fantasy I, the party will run into multiple encounters throughout the game, and some squares are deliberately there for this reason. Next, we have virus encounters from the Megaman Battle Network and Starforce series. Lastly, we have Drakkhen which amps up the encounter rate to absurd levels, with even bosses appearing to kick your ass.

random An example of this in Megaman Battle Network.

 

  • Bloody Horror: A trope used in nearly every form of media. It’s a genre that usually incorporates visceral things happening to the body. These can include blood shooting out of orifices, bloody bodies, or anything gory. Some examples include; The Arc of The Covenant scene from Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark. Beams shoot out of the box, melting the Nazis into bloody mush. Next, there’s the bloody elevator from The Shining. Lastly, there’s the 9th man’s fate in the visual novel, 999.

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

  • Centro Tree by Larry Carlson Archival pigment print on metallic paper

  • The Clearing by Rene Magritte 1944 oil on canvas 

This is a beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Rene Magritte. It’s another outdoor piece with many gorgeous colors. It appears to be the middle of the day, and the sky is a milky blue. There’s also various birds surrounding the area, and, for some reason, a large baguette. It almost looks like the remains of a picnic, and this bizarre object brings the humor of the work together. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
