More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another unique Hearthstone post! I really enjoyed looking at custom cards before, and I’ve decided to make a second part to it. Now, let’s have a brawl!

  • Trixie, Gem Collector Type: Legendary Rogue Minion Mana Cost: 7 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Appearance: A cool dark elf with many thievery tools. Battlecry: Draw a Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary card. Created by Dragonicdoom

This card is absolutely insane! The amount of value you can get out of it is staggering. I also love the fact that it can be either a spell or minion that you draw. It might have to be weakened if made into a real card though.

  • Electrobeak Owl Type: Rare Hunter Minion Tribe: Mech Mana Cost: 5 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Appearance: A robotic owl with electrifying wings. Created by DollmasterDoritos Battlecry: Silence a minion. If it was a Mech, also gain its Magnetic upgrades.

This is Ironbeak Owl on steroids, and I freaking love it! I’ve always wanted a card that can steal your opponent’s upgrades. It might need to cost more if it’s ever made into the game through.

More Cool TV Tropes

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

  • Evil Genius: One of the most popular tropes ever created. It deals with a malicious person with a very high intellect. They can be anyone, ranging from scientists, to lowly crooks. Some examples include; Johan Liebert from the Anime/Manga Monster. He’s extremely smart, and is also a highly dangerous serial killer. Next, we have The Riddler from the Batman Series. He wears a very extravagant outfit and loves to trick Bruce Wayne. Lastly, we have the German terrorist from Die Hard, Hans Gruber. He’s the big cheese that developed the plan to take over Nakatomi Tower.

  • Nutritional Nightmare: A trope that’s used in made comedies. It deals with a food that’s so unhealthy, that death could occur upon consumption. Some examples include; Deep fried butter, Double Dew from South Park (It’s Mountain Dew with 2X the caffeine), and when Homer forces Bart to add butter to his bacon.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Files: Zombie Edition

Hello fellow Duelists, and welcome to a special card post! I normally talk about the attributes of various monsters, but today I’m mixing it up! We will be discussing the types of monsters in the game. Today, this post will go over one of my favorite types, Zombies. Zombies have been around since the game’s creation, and I love the various effects. Now, let’s do Ghost Kazuka (Bonz) proud, and unleash the ghouls!

  • Pilgrim Reaper Type: XYZ/Zombie/Effect Attribute: Dark ATK/ 0 Def/ 0 Rank 6 Appearance: An ultra-cool skeletal monster with a huge scythe. Effect: Requires 2 Level 6 Monsters: This card gains 200 ATK and DEF for every DARK monster in either player’s Graveyard. You can detach one Xyz Material from this card; each player sends their top 5 cards from their Deck to the Graveyard (or their entire Deck, if less than 5). You can only use this effect of “Pilgrim Reaper” once per turn.

Here we have one of the most well made Zombie cards in existence! Its effect is incredibly good in multiple decks that require cards in the graveyard, and you can easily deck out your opponent this way. Also, Zombies are usually DARK attribute, so this thing could gain some massive stats quite easily.

  • Plaguespreader Zombie Type: Zombie/Tuner/Effect Attribute: Dark 2 Stars Appearance: A small, disease-ridden ghoul. ATK/ 400 DEF/ 200 Effect: If this card is in your GY; You can place 1 card from your hand to the top of the Deck; Special Summon this card, but banish it when it leaves the field.

One of the oldest Tuners in the game, and also one of the best. It’s easily searchable by Allure of Darkness, and is mainly used in destructive Synchro plays. The card used to be limited to one because of how easy it was to make Synchros with.

More Crappy Book Covers

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another humorous art post. Today, we will be looking at some more bad covers. Now, let’s take a dive into the bizarre world of  hilarious cringe.

  • Angela’s Arm by Roland Allnach Release Date: October 30th, 2018 Genres: Horror and Suspense 204 Pages Small Summary: A tale about a girl with a serpent for an arm.

Ok, I actually kind of love this cover because it reminds me of one of my favorite Anime. Unfortunately, it isn’t perfect, and I can see a lot of room for improvement. First of all, the hand has six fingers, which means that the owner isn’t human. Second, the book’s title is written in the standard “blood red” text to emphasize that it’s scary and edgy.  Lastly, the background looks photoshopped.

  • Civil War II: The Battle for the Future of America by E. Robert Gurr Release Date: May 3rd, 2019 295 Pages Genres: Political Thriller and Suspense Short Summary: A war pits a teacher and a hacker against each other.

This cover is the epitome of boring and wasted potential. It’s just text on a white background. It tells nothing of what happens in the book, and looks like it was pieced together in about five minutes. Also, we gotta be edgy, so there’s more of that laughable “blood red” text.
