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!

  • Outland Portal by Marmeg Type: Demon Hunter Rare Spell Appearance: A portal with a green aura and purple background. Effect: Give your hero +3 Attack this turn. Summon a random 3-Cost minion. 

This is a very cool card for the new Demon Hunter class. I have always loved portal-based cards, and this one definitely goes with the class’ aesthetic. Being both an attack boost and minion summon works wonders for the unique class, and this can possibly become a real card sometime soon.

  • Heroes Wanted Type: Warrior Neutral Spell Appearance: A fearsome looking dragon with a sword. Effect: Discover a Legendary minion. Give it +2/+2.

This is a simple, but effective card that could honestly be used in any type of Warrior deck. It doesn’t specify what type of Legendary minion you can discover, so the possibilities are literally endless.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 190

Tommy the Cat by Primus from the album “Sailing the Seas of Cheese” Released: 1991 Genres: Experimental Rock and Funk Metal Written by: Les Claypool, Tim Alexander, Larry LaLonde, and Todd Huth

This is going to be a very fun music post! I have just recently gotten into Primus, and I respect them more and more with repeating listening. This specific song really caught my attention, due to Claypool’s godlike bass playing. It starts with an excellent bass solo, and then we get the first lyrics. The lyrics are sung at an incredibly fast pace by Claypool, and it tells the story of a literal cool cat trying to seduce a sexy mate. The music video is shot like a R. Crumb comic, and it is just incredible. As one of my introductions into this band’s rich history, I could not have chosen a better song. The chorus is an absolute treat, and will have you singing along in no time. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Obscure and Awesome Spellcaster Cards

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh post! Today, we’ll be covering some obscure, but awesome Spellcaster cards. Now, let’s Duel!

  • Ceremonial Bell Type: Spellcaster/ Effect Monster Attribute: Light Stars: 3 Appearance: A shiny golden bell with a brick background. ATK/ 0 DEF/ 1850 Effect: Both players must keep their hands revealed.

This is very simple card with an equally simple effect. I always liked this card because of its high defense, and it really can help find out the type of deck your opponent is playing. Unfortunately, the minor setback happens to you as well. Still, it’s a very unique card that I could see getting upgraded in the near future.

  • Green Turtle Summoner Type: Spellcaster/FLIP/ Effect Attribute: Water Appearance: An old man with a turtle shell helmet and a hero-like creature to his side. Stars: 3 ATK/ 400 DEF/ 1500 Effect: FLIP: Target 1 monster your opponent controls; destroy it. 

What we have here is a stronger Man-Eater Bug for Spellcasters, and boy is that a good thing! It’s such a simple effect, and yet, it does so much. Card destruction is an incredibly useful tool in the game, and cards like this make it so much easier to pull off.

Awesome Thunder Monsters In Yu-Gi-Oh!

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh post! Today, we will be covering one of the most underrepresented types in the entire game, Thunder monsters. While there may not be many of this cards, some of them are extremely powerful. I will be going over a couple of my favorite Thunder cards today. Now, let’s duel!

  • Cuben Type: Thunder/Effect Attribute: Light Appearance: A walking blue Rubik’s cube with large hands. 4 Stars ATK/ 600 DEF/ 1900 Effect: Once per turn: You can roll a six-sided die, and while this monster is face-up on the field, neither player can Normal or Special Summon monsters with the same Level as the result.

This is a very good card that can stop the enemy in its tracks. Almost every deck in day’s meta is based around Special Summoning monsters, and this card can stop many cards from being played. Also, the effect seems permanent, so if you can keep it alive, it can stall the board for a long time.

  • Thunder King Rai-Oh Type: Thunder/Effect Attribute: Light Appearance: A blue flying god covered in lightning rods and surrounded by 2 thunder orbs. ATK/ 1900 DEF/ 800 4 Stars Effect: Neither player can add cards from their Deck to their hand except by drawing them. During either player’s turn when your opponent would Special Summon exactly 1 monster: You can send this face-up card to the Graveyard: negate the Special Summon, and if you do, destroy it.

This card is one of the best 4 star monsters around. Not only does it prohibit adding cards to your hand, but it also has a quite nifty summon negate. It used to be on the ban list for being way too good, and it still sees play today.

Asher’s Video Game Reviews

Hello fellow Gamers, and welcome to another game review. Today, I will be covering the insanely addicting title, Slay the Spire. Slay the Spire is a Deck-Building Roguelike that was developed by MegaCrit and published by Humble Bundle. It was released as a full game for the PC on January 23rd, 2019. The game has you play as one of three characters, whose main goal is to slay the titular Spire. Every run is randomized, and it is up to the player to decide which route to take. Each icon on the map has a different meaning, which I will quickly describe now. Monster faces mean that you will have a battle with a random enemy. A question mark means that a random event will occur. It can be anything from obtaining a powerful relic, to losing health, and more. The money bag space is the easiest to figure out, as it brings you to a shop. At the shop, you can buy more cards, potions, relics, and remove a single card from your deck. The horned monster is an elite enemy battle. These battles are much tougher than normal ones, but always drop relics upon being defeated. The last important space, is the fireplace. At these spaces, you can either heal for a small amount, or upgrade a single card. At the end of each dungeon lies a powerful boss that you must defeat using the various abilities gathered on your run. The combat is turn by turn, and you always get the first move. You start with 3 Energy, which means that you can use a variety of cards , but they must equal 3 or under. You also get to see what the enemy’s next action will be, so you have time to prepare for it. The cards are grouped into many different categories. Attack cards do exactly that, and may have some additional effects added to them. Block cards allow you to guard a certain amount of damage for that specific turn. Colorless cards are the rarest types, and can be used in any deck, no matter what character you play as. There is also many status effects in the game. They include; Vulnerable (A character takes 50% more damage from attacks for a set time), Weak (A character deals 50% less damage for a set time), Frail (A player has the amount of block per block card reduced), Poison (Deals the amount of damage on the card, and it reduces each turn), Confusion (Each card you draw has its cost randomized), Artifact (Negates one status effect) and Intangible (All damage is reduced to 1 for this turn).  Each character has its own set of strengths and weaknesses, and you must use them to create a powerful deck. The characters start out with a small sized deck, but after every battle, they’ll get a new card to add to it. The three characters are as follows; The Ironclad, The Silent, and The Defect. The Ironclad starts with a relic that allows him to heal 6 health after every battle. He is mainly a strength-based character, and many of his cards allow him to increase his strength, and deal some absolutely devastating attacks. He also has the highest amount of starting HP. The Silent is the Rogue of the game. She starts with the lowest amount of HP, and a relic that allows her to draw 2 extra cards every draw phase. She has access to some incredibly fun poison skills and deadly shivs. The last, and probably most fascinating characters is The Defect. The Defect is an ancient automaton that has a deck centered around Orbs. The Orbs are passive abilities that trigger and the end of each of your turns. You must be able to find out how to use these orbs in conjunction with one another in order to master this character. In conclusion, this is a deceptively easy game that will keep you playing for hours and hours. Final Rating: 9.5/10

More Awesome TV Tropes

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

  • Badass Bookworm: An awesome trope that used in multiple forms of media. It deals with a usually nerdy character with hidden potential. They either have incredible strength, heavy firepower, or potentially potent magic powers. Some examples include; Rock from Black Lagoon. This incredibly intelligent businessman is usually the voice of reason for the main characters. He can talk himself out of almost any situation, and the fact that he is bilingual really helps in foreign affairs. Next, we have Bane from DC’s Batman. This ultra violent villain has a surprisingly brilliant mind. Having read tons of books behind bars, he’s exceptionally knowledgeable about the world, and still has time to strengthen his body. Lastly, there’s Sho Minamimoto from The World Ends With You. This villain is one of the most intelligent characters in the entire game. He also has one of the most difficult boss battles, and will yell mathematical equations at you during the fight.
