More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

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

  • Worm King Gnosh by DoomGUy Type: Legendary Hunter Minion Tribe: Beast Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 2 Health: 2 Appearance: A giant purple worm with razor-sharp teeth. Effect: Battlecry: Destroy the highest-Attack minion on the board. Gain its Attack and Health.

I would really love to see a devour keyword in one of the newest Hearthstone expansions. It’s very versatile, and could lead to many great combos. This card is no exception, and I would throughly enjoy it actually being printed. The cost is perfect, and the effect isn’t too overpowered. Keep up the great work DoomGUy!

  • Amulet of Gazing by Shoemanband Type: Warlock Epic Spell Mana Cost: 5 Appearance: A very sinister-looking amulet with demonic horns and a pulsating eye. Effect: Destroy a minion. Deal damage equal to its Health randomly split among all characters.

Here we have a professionally made custom card that could easily make the next expansion. Its flavor and Warlock-like essence is absolutely perfect for the class. The Warlock class is all about harming yourself to increase your power, and this fits it to a T. The damage on this card could easily stack as well, leading to some insane combos.

Asher’s Art Gallery (D&D Edition)

Hello fellow art lovers, and welcome to a very special art post! I have recently really gotten into Dungeons and Dragons. I love the great storytelling and the wide array of amazing classes. The monsters should also be noted, and the artwork is just fantastic. This gallery will be covering some of the most eye-catching characters. Luckily, there’s a monster manual that covers all of the monsters in the game, and I will be using it as reference. Now, let’s go on a fantastic journey!

  • Strige: Type: Beast Affiliation: Unaligned Attack: Blood drain: Deals 1d4+3 piercing damage and attaches to the target. When attached, the beast drains 1d4+3 hit points. Languages: None  Appearance: A horrific amalgamation of a huge bat and a mosquito. It feeds on the blood of the living, like mosquitoes do in real life. A small pack of them can be easily dealt with, however, in large numbers, they can be quite formidable. As if mosquitoes weren’t threatening enough (Shudders).

  • Remorhaz: Type: Huge monstrosity Affiliation: Unaligned Immune to cold and fire.  Attacks: Heated Body: Any character that touches this monster, or uses a melee attack within 5 feet, will take 10 (3d6) fire damage. Bite: Does 40 (6d10+7)piercing damage plus 10 (3d6) fire damage. Swallow: The creature makes an attack against its grappled prey and swallows it. When swallowed, the prey is restrained and blinded and also takes 21 (6d6) acid damage at the start of each of the Remorhaz’s turns. Appearance: A fearsome, multi-legged creature with a blue body, large wings, and sharp fangs.

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.

Hearthstone Tribes: Mech Edition

Hello fellow tavern dwellers, and welcome to a new Hearthstone post! Tribes are a huge thing in the game that causes various cards to have awesome effects with one another. They range from Dragons to Murlocs, and many decks are built around specific tribes. One of my favorites is the Mech tribe. Mechs have been a part of the game from the very beginning, and with the new Magnetic skill, they are a major force to be reckoned with. Below is a list of some of my favorite Mechs, and some awesome synergies with other cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a good old brawl!

  • SN1P-SN4P Tribe: Mech Mana Cost: 3 Attack: 2 Health: 3 Type: Legendary Neutral Minion Appearance: A giant, blue robot crab with a mounted gun on its head. Expansion: The Boomsday Project Effect: Magnetic, Echo, Deathrattle: Summon two 1/1 Microbots. 

This card was released recently for free to new players, and it’s one of the best Mechs in the game. Being one of the first Legendaries to have Echo and Magnetic, the amount of play is incredible. It can magnetize to some insanely powerful creatures, creating an unstoppable behemoth of epic proportions.

  • Blightnozzle Crawler Tribe: Mech Mana Cost: 4 Type: Rare Rogue Minion Appearance: A poisonous machine with multiple legs and syringes. Attack: 2 Health: 4 Effect: Deathrattle: Summon a 1/1 Ooze with Poisonous and Rush. Expansion: The Boomsday Project 

Another absolutely fantastic card that makes the Rogue class even more fun. The ability to summon a minion that can kill anything is extremely unique, and this card was a staple for Deathrattle Rogue decks. You can also magnetize this to other mechs to leave the opponent in for a nasty surprise.

Asher’s Cult Film Watchlist Part 2

Hello fellow Cult Film Fans! It’s time for another film-based post! A couple of months ago, I discussed some Cult Films that I would like to see. I had a ton of fun doing that post, so I decided to make a second part to it. I’d love to hear some suggestions from you guys, so be sure to leave some in the comments’ section below. Now, let’s begin!

  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension Release Date: August 10th 1984 Rated: PG Runtime: 1h 43 min Genres: Comedy, Adventure, Romance Directed by: W.D. Richter Written by: Earl Mac Rauch Produced by: Sidney Beckerman Starring: John Lithgow, Peter Weller, Christopher Lloyd, Ellen Barkin, and Jeff Goldblum  

Short Summary: This film, aside from its incredibly long name, is a pure 80’s Sci-Fi satire. The movies tells the story of Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller), a mad scientist/Neurosurgeon/Rock Star and his equally unique teammates. When an alien race from the 8th Dimension threatens to conquer Earth, Banzai and his friends must suit up for battle in order to save the world from total destruction. The script is chalk full of hilarious dialogue and unpredictability. This alone makes this film right up my alley. Also, it has an all star cast, and it’s always enjoyable to see Goldblum chew the scenery. I will definitely seek this movie out if I can find it.

  • Pan’s Labyrinth Release Date: January 19th, 2007 (In USA) (2006) internationally Rated: R for language and graphic violence. Genres: War, Drama, Fantasy Directed/Written by: Guillermo del Toro  Starring: Sergi Lopez, Ivana Baquero, Maribel Verdu, and Doug Jones Runtime: 1h 58 min Language: Spanish  

Short Summary: Pan’s Labyrinth is a terrifying and beautiful film by one of the godfathers of Horror, Guillermo del Toro. The film takes place in Spain during World War II and tells the story of Ophelia (Baquero), a young girl who lives in the midst of the battle with her pregnant Mother and ruthless Stepfather. Ophelia loves fairy tales, and runs into a fairy, and this is where her adventure begins. The creatures believe her to be a princess, and have information about her estranged Father. She’s asked to complete three horrific tasks, and if she even fails one, she’ll never see her Father again. This film immediately intrigued me upon seeing some of the grotesquely beautiful characters. I have yet to watch a del Toro film, and I believe that this one might be my gateway drug into his incredibly unique stories. Expect a HUGE review after I see this film.
