My Favorite Spells In Hearthstone Part 1

Note: These are spells I haven’t gone over yet, so no copies will appear on this post.

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post. This specific post will go over my favorite spells. Spells are the “Bread and Butter” of a deck, and can make or break a game. Many spells have various synergies, and some decks even completely are comprised of them. Now, let’s begin!

  • Polymorph Type: Mage Neutral Spell  Mana Cost: 4 Appearance: A mage turning someone into a sheep. Effect: Transform a minion into a 1/1 sheep.

Good old Polymorph! This card is pure rage incarnate, and is still used today. The ability to transform an incredibly beefy minion into a weak pathetic one is very useful. It also silences the minion, so you don’t have to worry about any lingering effects. Overall, an absolutely fantastic card.

  • Defile Type: Rare Warlock Spell Mana Cost: 2 Appearance: A chaotic portal with dark tendrils. Effect: Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, cast this again.

When this card came out in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion, I didn’t think much of it. But now, I use it in every Warlock deck that I make. This card is one of the best board clearing tools in the game. It’s quite fun to throw this spell out on a full board with spell damage, and watch the chaos ensue.

  • Ultimate Infestation Type: Druid Epic Spell Mana Cost: 10 Appearance: An army of blue ghouls with yellow teeth. Effect: Deal 5 damage. Draw 5 cards. Gain 5 armor. Summon a 5/5 ghoul.

It’s time for the Swiss-Army Druid! This card has so many good things going for it, that many people use it to end the game. It deals damage, has draw power, gives you armor, and allows you to summon a powerful minion. It’s a very unique effect, and no other card in the game can do what this can.

More Awesome Carlson Paintings (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more of Carlson’s art. Now, let’s begin!

  • Rainbow Sea by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment Print on Paper

This is an absolutely wonderful work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor scene with many beautiful colors. The sea is multicolored, starting with a seafoam green background that cascades into a brilliant blue. The sky is also an amazing reddish-orange that shines like a ray of heaven. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  •  Silent Fisher by Larry Carlson 2018 collage and paint on paper 

This is uniquely awesome work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson.  It’s a trippy college with many different animal components. There’s also a very strange, special object in the center of the piece with a furry body, and an owl’s eyes. The object’s body has a holder that’s made out of a serpentine creature. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Yokai Wednesdays (Every Other Wednesday)

Konichiwa, everyone! I’m finally back from my Christmas break, and am ready to make content once again! Let’s start up the new season with one of my favorite posts. Now, let’s go on a journey to “The Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Fukuro muijina are mischievous creatures of Japanese mythology. They are badgers that can resemble an ancient noblewoman with a giant sack on their over their shoulder. They like to dress up as people, and some stories say that the yokai itself is just the haunted sack.

  • Hossumori are incredible fascinating creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as the animated wand-like brushes held by Buddhist Priests. The brush erases all general distractions from the priest such as; flies, mosquitoes, and other annoying insects.

Yokai Wednesdays

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

  • Nikusui are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as beautiful women about 18-20 years old. This is just a disguise, however, as they’re vampires that stalk people at night. Upon catching a victim, the yokai will bite it and suck the meat off its bones, leaving only skin and bones behind.

  • Bake icho no sei are very strange creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re the spirits of ginkgo trees, and seem to have an unknown purpose. They have tall, yellow bodies, carry small gongs, and have tattered black kimonos.

More Awesome Carlson Paintings

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at the mind-blowing works of Larry Carlson. Now, let’s begin!

  • Magnolia Sun by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment  Print on Metallic Paper 

This is an absolutely gorgeous work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s another outdoor piece that blends Realism and Surrealism. The painting is set in a forest with two visible trees. The trees are covered with kaleidoscopic leaves that spread across the top like cosmic glitter. It adds a very trippy and beautiful atmosphere. Then, we get to the sky, and are met with a sublime display of wispy blues, purples, and pinks. The titular sun is shining through an opening on one of the trees, and it shines with a powerful yellow-orange light. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this painting in the comments’ section below.

  • Wonder Land Pond (Aka Afternoon Light) by Larry Carlson Archival Print on Metallic Paper

This is another beautiful painting by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece takes place again outdoors, and I really love what he does with this one. The sky is an amazing blend of starry patterns, neon spiky trees, and brilliant shades of blue.  The “pond” is a large hole that holds an awesome spiral mandala, and it’s surround by some equally fantastic flowers. Tell me what you think of this painting in the comments’ section below.

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.
