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 friendly Brawl!

  • Bloodthirsty Illidari by Headshotts Demon Hunter Neutral Minion Appearance: A female Illidari overflowing with green arcane energy. Mana Cost: 5 Attack: 4 Health: 3 Effect: Rush. Costs (1) less per Attack of your Hero.

This is a very basic card that fits perfectly in an aggressive Demon Hunter build. It can be used as a good sacrificial lamb to get the game in your favor. It also has pretty good stats as far as mana cost goes.

  • Pint-Sized Brawler by gardenghi16 Type: Warrior Epic Minion Appearance: A pink-haired gnome with a large sword. Mana Cost: 1 Attack: 1 Health: 3 Effect: Deals double damage while damaged.

absolutely love the design of this card. It’s very quirky, and right up a Warrior’s alley. This essentially takes the “Enrage” keyword to whole new level. If you buff this minion, she can be dishing out ridiculously strong attacks on her poor enemies. All of the Augmerchant cards would have amazing synergies with her, and she might even put Frothing Berserker to shame. Incredible job gardenhi16!

Asher’s Art Gallery

Hello fellow art lovers! My Gallery has recently gotten some new pieces! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Return of the Bird Tribe by Larry Carlson (May 26th, 2020) 

This is an amazing work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor piece that’s covered in an explosion of colors. The titular “bird tribe” appears to be strange, human-face creatures with literal toucans for wings. There’s also some kaleidoscopic animals in the background, and multiple Jesus’ sitting on blue couches. The vivid sky is filled with amazing fractals and abstract patterns which pull the viewer into its masterwork. I absolutely adore this piece, and would love to know what you think of it in the comment’s section below.

More Awesome TV Tropes

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

  • Skyward Scream: This is one of the most common tropes used in almost every form of media. It deals with a character that screams loud enough to reach the heavens. It can be used to display anguish, rage, sadness, or pain. Some examples include; Von Karma’s mental breakdown in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Upon being bested by the titular attorney, he yells out in rage, much to the shock of the jury. Next, there’s  Zero’s reaction to a prominent character’s death in Mega Man X4. He yells WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRR!! Unfortunately this is horribly voice acted, and more comes off as a comedy scene instead of something tragic. Lastly, there’s Spongebob’s rage in the episode, Your Shoe’s Untied. He screams to the heavens DOESN’T ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO TIE A KNOOOOOTTTTTTT?!?!

KNOT

 

  • Sickly Green Glow: This is a common trope that used in many forms of media. It deals with the evil glow of green objects. They can range from hazardous waste, to acid. Some examples include; Dr. Faust VII ‘s yellowish-green mana. This creepy doctor has this magic surrounding him whenever he summons his spirit. Next, there’s the killing curse from Harry Potter. Avada Kedavra causes a bright green beam to shoot out of a wand, killing anyone it hits. Lastly, there’s Rugal’s attacks  from the King of Fighters series. This immensely powerful villain usually has evil green energy surrounding him when he uses his attacks.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! I’m back from my week long vacation! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • C’Thrax Manipulator of Form by NullStalker Type: Shaman Legendary Minion Appearance: A gigantic mindflayer-like creature with a super buff body. Mana Cost: 7 Attack: 7 Health: 5 Effect: Battlecry: Transform all minions in your hand and deck into ones that cost (3) more. They cost (3) less.

Here we have the boss minion of Evolve Shaman that we all wanted! Its cost is quite fair, and its effect is truly gamebreaking. The randomness factor of transformation is always a plus to me, and this card makes it a very powerful utility. With it, you can potentially get some incredibly strong minions for a much lower cost. Excellent job NullStalker!

  • Kronk Goodeetz by Gothe Type: Warrior Legendary Minion Appearance: A pissed off Orc chef. Mana Cost: 4 Attack: 2 Health: 3 Effect: Battlecry: Equip a 2/3 Spoon that lets you cook soup.

Here we have one of the most unique custom cards I’ve ever seen! The name is obviously a reference to Kronk from The Emperor’s New Groove, and I love that. His effect equips you with a special weapon that allows you to “Discover” ingredients for a soup. The ingredients range from increased stats, to even changing tribes. This could be awesome in a food-themed expansion, and I would love to see it become a real card.
