Some of My Favorite Binding of Isaac Items Part 1

Hello everyone, and welcome to a new topic! As mentioned before, The Binding of Isaac is one of my favorite video games of all time. With an amazing 547 items, the amount of synergies are literally endless. The following will be a multiple part series on my favorite items, and the awesome synergies that go with it. Now, let’s dive into the basement, and start our crazy adventure!

  • (Obvious Choice) Brimstone: Type: Passive Item Cosmetic Change: Transforms Issac into a black demon with red eyes and massive horns. Location: Item Room (Requires some specific items to appear) or Devil Room Effect: Changes Isaac’s tears into a chargeable blood laser that deals his damage for 13 ticks. The laser pierces the entire terrain in a horizontal pattern. If you have 20/20, the beam doubles, and if you have Loki’s Horns, the beam can shoot in a cross-shaped pattern. Lastly, there’s the crazy synergy with Tammy’s Head that literally melts enemies and bosses alike. 

Good old Brimstone! This item was first introduced to the game in the Wrath of the Lamb expansion, and I immediately fell in love with it. The laser is a fantastic early game item, and the ridiculous synergies with it can make you win instantly.

  • Fruit Cake Type: Passive Location: Item Rooms  Cosmetic Change: Issac’s tears are colored like a rainbow. Effect: Every tear that Issac shoots has a random effect ranging from Antigravity to Wiggle Worm. Synergies: Combine this item with 3 Dollar Bill for crazy status effects and unpredictable damage. You can also combine it with any bomb-type item for random bomb effects.

I absolutely adore this item! I love the concept of randomness in video games, and this fits the concept to a T. While it can occasionally backfire and kill you, it’s a blast to pick up on any run.

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.

My Least Favorite Legendary Hearthstone Minions

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! Today’s post will deal with Legendary Minions. This is, in my opinion, the worst Legendary Minions in the game. Now, let’s play!

  • Gormok the Impaler Type: Legendary Mana Cost: 4 Attack: 4 Health: 4 Appearance: An awesome, giant tusked warrior that reminds me of a human/mammoth hybrid. Effect: If you have at least 4 other minions, deal 4 damage.

It’s a real shame that such a cool looking card has such a crappy effect. Its stats are subpar for a 4-cost minion, and keeping 4 other minions alive is extremely hard to do.  If its stats were a bit stronger, it would actually be a pretty good card that didn’t just need to rely on its effect.

  • Hemet Nesingwary Type: Legendary Minion Battlecry Cost: 5 Attack: 6 Health: 3 Appearance: An epic-looking dwarf with a huge gun. Battlecry: Destroy a Beast.

This is one of the shittiest legendaries in the entire game. First of all, the stats are complete trash, and almost anything can run over this minion. Second, its effect is one of the worst destructions ever printed. Many minions have a destruction Battlecry, but this one only kills a specific tribe. If you get this card in a standard pack, dust it immediately!

Crappy Book Covers (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy covers. Now, let’s begin!

  • Death in the Australian Outback by Anthony E. Thorogood Release Date: December 5th, 2013 Genres: Humor, Mystery Plot: This is a series of crime novels with a large dash of humor.

This cover is one of the most pathetic that I’ve ever seen! It looks like it was done with little to no effort. The cover is of a poorly drawn man with a gun that’s larger than his face. He also has a very disgusted look on his face.

  • Adventures of Silicon Jones (Maven Fairy Godmother Book 6) by Charlotte Henley Babb Released on: November 20th, 2018 Genres: Science Fiction and Fantasy Pages: 76 Plot: This is a book about a genius hacker that explores the fourth dimension.

This cover is schlocky awesomeness at its finest. We have a cool-looking bearded dude riding a motorcycle with a blue dinosaur’s head on the rim. Unfortunately, the cover is also nightmarish with the horrific, yellow abomination in the left side of the painting.
