Hello fellow duelists! It’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s duel!
Leotaur Type: Beast-Warrior/Effect Attribute: Earth 4 Stars Appearance: A fearsome lion-beast hybrid with a large sword. ATK: 1500 DEF: 1600 Effect: If this card battles a non-Normal Monster, this card gains 500 ATK during the Damage Step only.
This card can be absolutely brutal in some decks that are filled with Effect Monsters. Having a 2000 ATK beat stick that can easily be used is always a good thing.
Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome custom cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a brawl!
Gornack Blazeheart by SirCat Type: Legendary Warrior Minion Mana Cost: 5 Attack: 6 Health: 4 Appearance: An absolutely terrifying and awesome Orc with spiky armor and a huge halberd. Effect: Enemy minions directly in front of this minion have a 100% chance to attack the wrong target.
This is a very unique Warrior card that I could definitely see played in today’s meta. We never really have had a minion quite like this before, and the effect isn’t too overpowered. The stats of this minion are also quite balanced, and while it isn’t too hard to takedown, minions will have trouble handling it.
Sunwell Portal by KnightKnight Type: Priest Common Spell Appearance: A portal that is radiating with a blue-green light, and surrounded by an azure blue background. Mana Cost: 3 Effect: Silence a minion. Summon a random 3-cost minion.
Here we have one of my favorite genres of cards, the portals. I have always loved the randomness of these cards, and this works perfectly for the Priest. Silence Priest decks are some of the most fun that you can have in the game, and I think this card is great.
Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing facts. Now, let’s begin!
Serial Killer: A dark, but morbidly fascinating trope that’s used in multiple forms of media. It depicts a character, possibly mentally unstable, who kills multiple people. Some examples (not using depictions of real life examples), include; Lucy from the ultra-violent manga and anime, Elfen Lied. She is completely malicious, and slaughters multiple people with her demonic powers. Next, there’s Mr. Zsasz from the Batman Series. He’s one of the more psychopathic prisoners of Arkham Asylum. His body is covered in scars, which represent the amount of people he has killed. Lastly, there’s Dexter from the show of the same name. He’s a unique case, in that he only kills Serial Killers.
Lucy: Cute but extremely dangerous.
Up To Eleven: An incredibly common trope that occurs in many forms of media. It happens when some type of event or tragedy increases power or effect. Some examples include; Most of the cast of the manga/anime series, Eyeshield 21. This is an amazing football series that insanely increases stereotypical bullies and jocks into super humans. Next, we have the Ludicrous Speed dial from Spaceballs. Lastly, there’s the Are you Nuts?! speed on Jimmy Neutron’s Jetpack.
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.
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.
An example of this in Megaman Battle Network.
Bloody Horror: A trope used in nearly every form of media. It’s a genre that usuallyincorporates 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.
