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 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.

  • 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.
