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 incredible works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Memory of a Journey by Rene Magritte 1952 Gouche on Paper 

This is a very unique piece by “Belgian Surrealist” Magritte. It’s a humorous take on the standard “Fruit Still Life Piece”. The fruit are made out of stone, and there’s a bottle to the left side of it. The rigidness of the work lets you fill in the details with motion. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Reconnaissance without End by Rene Magritte 1946 Gouache on paper

This is a beautiful work by “Belgian Painter” Magritte. It’s an outdoor scene with a gorgeous blue sky, and creamy colored grass. There’s also a big tree in the center that houses 2 blue figures. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

More Awesome Cards From Rise of Shadows Part 2

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for the second part of my Hearthstone post. All of the cards for Rise of Shadows were released today, so I’m going to give more of my opinions on them. Now, let’s have ourselves a brawl!

  • Safeguard Type: Neutral Minion Tribe: Mech Appearance: A walking safe with huge arms. Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 4 Health: 5 Effect: Taunt: Deathrattle: Summon a 0/5 Vault Safe with Taunt. 

This looks like a very unique minion that could synergize with magnetic creatures. Having a double taunt effect is always a good thing, and the stat line isn’t too bad either.

  • Mad Summoner Type:  Neutral Rare Minion Tribe: Demon Appearance: A two-headed demon with magical powers. Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 4 Health: 4 Effect: Battlecry: Fill each player’s board with 1/1 imps.

This card is absolutely incredible! Being able to fill the board with weak minions can stop your opponent’s plans in their tracks. I will see if I can create a powerful deck that revolves around this mechanic.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards Part 2

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I really enjoyed doing the last custom post, so I decided to do part 2. Now, let’s have a brawl!

  • Colossal Infernal by SpazzMaticus Type: Warlock Epic Minion Tribe: Demon Appearance: A gigantic green infernal. Mana Cost: 10 Attack: 10 Health: 10 Effect: Battlecry: Deal 5 damage to all other characters.

The Warlock was always a “high risk-high reward” class, and this card fits that mold to a T! It’s a perfect late game card, and can be used as a board clear. Its massive body can also handle a lot of damage.  Keep watch of your health though, as 5 damage is quite a lot.

  • Book of Light by ShadowDragonType: Priest Epic Spell Appearance: A flashing book of ancient knowledge. Mana cost: 5 Effect: Add 3 random Priest spells to your hand.

What we have here is a Cabalist’s Tome for Priests. The cost is equivalent to the mage version, and the randomness factor really pleases me. You could get some board clear utility, healing, summoning, or spell damage increasing tools. I’d love to see this card in an upcoming expansion.

Even More Awesome Comic Book Characters (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow Comic Book Fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating characters. Now, let’s begin!

  • Parasite Real Name: Joshua Michael Allen Status: Villain Creator: DC First Appeared: Action Comics #340 (August 1966) Ht and Wt: Variable Green Eyes No Hair Powers/Abilities: Life-energy absorption, size alteration, temporary access to meta human powers through absorption

Joshua was an extremely rude bike messenger that often took people’s packages for his own. One day, he ran into a strange green blob, and his life changed forever. No noticing the downed power line, Josh stuck it and lost consciousness. He woke up in a hospital, where he was diagnosed with alien flu. He was then brought to S.T.A.R. Labs for further research, when tragedy struck! The machines the scientists were using triggered a mutation in the virus, imbuing Josh with exceptional absorption abilities. Originally horrified and depressed, Josh sought to end his life, only to be stopped by the Man of Steel. This encounter changed the mutated creature, and started his obsession with absorbing powerful Meta Humans. He still remains a highly dangerous foe, continuously waiting for the perfect time to attack Superman.

  • Shaggy Man Real Name: Shaggy Man Status: Genetic Experiment (Villain) Ht: 8’2” Wt: 550 lbs Eye Color: Red  Hair Color: Brown First Appeared: Justice League of America #45 (June 1st, 1966) Creator: DC Powers/Abilities: Insane superhuman strength, Superhuman endurance, Regeneration, Neigh invulnerability, Limited intellect

Shaggy Man was the horrible genetic experiment of the villainous Professor Ivo. He was created from the artificial synthesis of tissue and fur. Ivo sent the exceedingly strong behemoth to battle the Justice League, where it nearly took down the entire team. However, Hawkman discovered the monstrosity’s weakness was his thick hair, and with the combined effort of Katana, the two heroes took down this horrible abomination.

Awesome Cards From Custom Hearthstone Part 1

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the card game, and I love the creativity that goes into making each card. Custom Hearthstone is both a subreddit and website that lets people from around the world design cards. This post will be covering some of my absolute favorite cards made on the site. I will be posting their usernames as well, so that you can check them out at your leisure. Now, let’s begin!

  • Senegos Created by: TheGronne  Tribe: Dragon Mana Cost: 8  Type: Legendary Mage Minion Attack: 4 Health: 12 Appearance: A really cool azure dragon with light wings. Effect: Counter the first spell your opponent casts each turn.

This card is absolutely incredible! The stats are extremely fair for an 8 cost minion, and the effect is very unique. You essentially get a “counter spell” minion that activates every turn. If this ever makes it into the real game, Secret Mage decks would become meta defining.

  • Pirate Invasion! by Braydentheco Type: Warrior Epic Spell Mana Cost: 4 Appearance: A group of people being raided by pirates. Effect: Shuffle 10 copies of random Pirates into your deck. They cost (1) less. 

This is another ultra inventive card that could make Pirate Warrior work. It seems like an “Academic Espionage” for the Warrior class, and probably has insane synergies with other pirates. Patches can be summoned for free, and you can easily fill the field with strong minions. Tell me what you think of this card in the comments’ section below.

More Crappy Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh! post. I will be covering some more crappy cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Commander Covington Type: Machine/Effect Attribute: Earth 4 Stars Appearance: A mechanized commander with red armor. ATK/ 1000 DEF/ 1000 Effect: You can send 1 face-up “Machina Solider, Sniper, and Defender” you control to the Graveyard; Special Summon 1 “Machina Force” from your hand or Deck.

This card allows you to create a beefy 4600 attack monster. Unfortunately, getting its effect off is extremely difficult. It has a very frail body, and needs more protection in order to be playable.

  • Jigen Bakudan (Aka Time Bomb) Type: Pyro/Flip/Effect Attribute: Fire 2 Stars Appearance: A time bomb with two hands and a colorful body. ATK/ 200 DEF/ 1000 Effect: FLIP: After this card is flipped, Tribute it during your Standby Phase to destroy all monsters on your side of the field and inflict damage equal to half of the total ATK of the destroyed cards (excluding this monster) to your opponent’s Life Points.

Ugh, where to begin with this card? First of all, its stats are complete garbage. Second, you have to wait an entire turn to activate this monster’s effect. Third, destroying your own monsters is not always a good thing. You may be able to do a bit of damage to your opponent, but the large amount of time it takes to set it up is not worth it in the end.

Yokai Wednesdays (Every Other Wednesday)

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”!

  • Umi nyobo are incredibly dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as human women with fish-like features. They have sharp, shark-like teeth, scaly skin, and webbed toes. Some stories give these creatures human speech, while others depict them as silent predators. They mainly hunt humans, and thoroughly enjoy killing them. Some do have morals, however, and might be seen showing kindness to people.

  • Gumyocho are incredibly beautiful creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as large two-headed birds with golden pelts and fiery tails. They live in Gokuraku judo (The Land of Amida Buddha), and have angelic voices. It’s said that if you hear this yokai, sing, you will reach enlightenment.
