My Most Hated Cards In Hearthstone

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! This time, we will be going over some of my most hated cards. Now, let’s have a brawl!

  • Coldlight Oracle Tribe: Murloc Mana Cost: 3 Rarity: Rare  Attack: 2 Health: 2 Appearance: An Angler Fish-like Murloc with sharp teeth. Battlecry: Each player draws 2 cards.

I used to really enjoy this card, but the Rogue strategy with it is the most infuriating thing in the game. The Rogue can use Shadowstep, a card that returns a monster to the owner’s hand where it costs 2 less mana. Rogues would spam the hell out of this making you lose tons of important plays. Luckily, the card isn’t allowed in Standard Format, but in Wild, it’s still a major pain in the ass.

  • Poisoned Blade Type: Weapon Class: Rogue  Appearance: A literal poisoned blade. Mana Cost 4 Rarity: Epic Attack: 1 Durability: 3 Effect: Your Hero Power gives this weapon +1 Attack instead of replacing it.

Here we have an incredibly pathetic and slow Rogue Weapon. It essentially deletes your Hero Power to gives this shitty card power. Having to pay 2 mana to give this weapon a measly +1 attack makes this card nearly unplayable. There are so many great Rogue Weapons, so don’t even give this one a try.

More Random TV Tropes

Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for some more tropes! Now, let’s begin!

  • Eldrich Abomination: This is a trope that Lovecraft and Giger fashioned their entire aesthetic around it. The trope deals with any type of entity that seems to defy logic. They usually are extremely powerful and very grotesque in nature. Some examples include; The original abomination, Cthulu. Cthulu was created by H.P. Lovecraft, and is depicted as an immensely large, octopus-headed monstrosity with an insanity-inducing stare. Next, we have the Ultra Beasts from Pokemon Sun and Moon. These legendary Pokemon are unlike any creatures in the series. We have Buzzwole, an extremely dangerous and steroid-filled mosquito. We also have Guzzlord, a massive Cephalothorax with a never filled appetite. Lastly, we have Korrok from the excellent Cult Film and Book, John Dies At The End. Korrok is the embodiment of evil that creates all the monsters. It’s depicted as a giant entity made up of multiple animal parts. The entity gains knowledge by eating people.

  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: This is one of the most common Anime Tropes in existence. It deals with characters in shows with abnormally colored hair. Some examples include; Nel’s green hair from Bleach, Ramona’s ever-changing hair in Scott Pilgrim, 2D’s blue hair from the band, the Gorillaz.

More Awesome TV Tropes

Hello fellow Media Lovers! It’s time for some more tropes! I hope you guys will enjoy it. Now, let’s begin!

  • The Jinx: A darkly comedic trope that deals with severely unlucky characters. They are perfectly normal, but can inflict brutal unluckiness on others. Some examples include: Archie of Archie Comics (He tends to get himself and others around him into trouble), Douglas Fackler of the Police Academy movies (Upon throwing an apple core, he unknowingly causes a riot), and  this is Black Cat of Spider-Man fames main gimmick.

  • Airborne Mook: This trope deals with any character in any form of media that flies, and is usually a pain to deal with. Some examples of this include: Pipis from the classic Megaman series (These mechanical birds drop large eggs on the Blue Bomber that split into many annoying miniature versions), The Lakitu  from Super Mario Bros (These flying freaks stay out of range and drop spinys on the Mario Bros) lastly, we have the Explosive Flies from The Binding of Isaac (These bastards fly around rooms and like to get up in your business. Take care of them from a distance, or face a full heart’s worth of damage)

Some of My Favorite Cult Films Part 1

Hello fellow Movie Lovers! It’s time for a very special post! I have a very soft spot for the bizarre side of cinema, and think people can make some pretty impressive films with a low budget. The following is a multipart post about some of my favorite Cult Films, and a short spoiler-free summary of each. Be warned though, some of these films contain some pretty controversial content.  Let me know some of your favorites in the comments’ section below, and I may feature them in an upcoming post. Now, grab so popcorn, and let’s begin!

  • The Room Type: Black Comedy, “Romance”, Tragedy,  Directed, Produced, and Written by Tommy Wiseau Rated: R (Language, Violence, and Sexuality) Date Released: June 27th, 2003 Starring: Greg Sestero, Juliet Danielle, Tommy Wiseau, Carolyn Minnott, and Philip Haldiman Runtime: 1 hr. 39 min 

No Cult Film list is complete without this “Painfully Funny” entry. The Room is a massive train wreck created by the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau. It has horrible acting, a shallow plot, and is ironically funny as hell. The story is about a wealthy banker named Johnny (Wiseau) who has a backstabbing fiancée, Lisa (Danielle) that cheats on him with his best friend, Mark (Sestero). What follows is a horribly made love story, that’ll will leave you in stitches.  The film is known as the Citizen Kane of Bad Movies, and has a huge cult following. The story of the film’s production is also quite fascinating, and Greg has released a book on it called The Disaster Artist.

  • Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead Directed by: Lloyd Kauffman Written by: Gabriel Friedman Produced by: Andrew Deemer Not Rated (But Probably R for Gore, Blood, Sex, Strong Violence, Politically Incorrect Humor, Gross Scenes, Strong Language, Nudity, and Alcohol) Starring: Jason Yachanin, Kate Graham, and Allyson Sereboff Release Date: July 6th, 2012 Genres: Comedy, Musical, and Horror Runtime: 1hr 43 min

If you like incredibly comedic Body Horror films, you’ll fall in love with this film. Be warned though, it’s a Troma film, so expect gratuitous violence, sex, and other gross bodily functions. The plot tells the story of a military fast food restaurant called the American Chicken Bunker. It just so happens to built on ancient Indian burial grounds, so all sorts of chaos ensues. All of the main characters are named after fast food restaurants, and this really adds to the film’s charm. It’s also part musical, and the songs will have you dying of laughter all the way through.

Awesome Cards From Custom Hearthstone Part 1

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the card game, and I love the creativity that goes into making each card. Custom Hearthstone is both a subreddit and website that lets people from around the world design cards. This post will be covering some of my absolute favorite cards made on the site. I will be posting their usernames as well, so that you can check them out at your leisure. Now, let’s begin!

  • Senegos Created by: TheGronne  Tribe: Dragon Mana Cost: 8  Type: Legendary Mage Minion Attack: 4 Health: 12 Appearance: A really cool azure dragon with light wings. Effect: Counter the first spell your opponent casts each turn.

This card is absolutely incredible! The stats are extremely fair for an 8 cost minion, and the effect is very unique. You essentially get a “counter spell” minion that activates every turn. If this ever makes it into the real game, Secret Mage decks would become meta defining.

  • Pirate Invasion! by Braydentheco Type: Warrior Epic Spell Mana Cost: 4 Appearance: A group of people being raided by pirates. Effect: Shuffle 10 copies of random Pirates into your deck. They cost (1) less. 

This is another ultra inventive card that could make Pirate Warrior work. It seems like an “Academic Espionage” for the Warrior class, and probably has insane synergies with other pirates. Patches can be summoned for free, and you can easily fill the field with strong minions. Tell me what you think of this card in the comments’ section below.

More Fascinating TV Tropes

Hello fellow Media Lovers! It’s time for another TV Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some interesting media tropes. Now, let’s begin!

  • Beware the Nice Ones: This is one of my favorite tropes in all of media. It occurs when a character, who’s generally a happy and charming individual, flies into an unstoppable rage or becomes the scariest character in the show. Examples of this include (with possible spoilers); Nagisa from Assassination Classroom. This main character is one of the most lovable and caring individuals in the entire show. However, upon assassinations, his composure completely changes, and he becomes filled with bloodlust. This change is known to make even veteran soldiers shit their pants. Akimichi Chouji from Naruto is a lovable chubby ninja who is best friends with one of the most intelligent characters in the show, Nara Shikamaru. During the Sound Ninja Arc, Shikamaru nearly gets killed by Jirobo, and this cause Chouji to go berserk, and brutally kill the ninja in awesome fashion. Lastly, we have Ned Flanders from The Simpsons. This Jesus Loving neighbor of Homer is always in a good mood. That is, until one episode, when he releases the pent up anger he has at the town in an explosive rant that shocks everyone.

  • Acrofatic: A very funny trope that occurs in all forms of media. This occurs when a generally fat individual is actually very quick on their feet. They end up perform feats that aren’t usually possible for people their size. Examples of this include; Rufus from Street Fighter IV. He’s a big man that weighs about 410 pounds. Strangely enough, he’s one of the fastest characters in the series, and can perform ridiculous stunts like firing himself like a missile, or transforming into a tornado of punches and kicks. Next, we have Bo Rai Cho from the Mortal Combat series. This obese drunken master is extremely fast on his feet, and one of his fatalities has the fatty jumping unbelievably high in the air, and crashing down on his opponent. Lastly, we have lovable bald dimwit Jerome “Curly” Howard from The Three Stooges. The bumbling idiot was a surprisingly fast runner.
