More Awesome Cards From Rise of Shadows Part 2

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for the second part of my Hearthstone post. All of the cards for Rise of Shadows were released today, so I’m going to give more of my opinions on them. Now, let’s have ourselves a brawl!

  • Safeguard Type: Neutral Minion Tribe: Mech Appearance: A walking safe with huge arms. Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 4 Health: 5 Effect: Taunt: Deathrattle: Summon a 0/5 Vault Safe with Taunt. 

This looks like a very unique minion that could synergize with magnetic creatures. Having a double taunt effect is always a good thing, and the stat line isn’t too bad either.

  • Mad Summoner Type:  Neutral Rare Minion Tribe: Demon Appearance: A two-headed demon with magical powers. Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 4 Health: 4 Effect: Battlecry: Fill each player’s board with 1/1 imps.

This card is absolutely incredible! Being able to fill the board with weak minions can stop your opponent’s plans in their tracks. I will see if I can create a powerful deck that revolves around this mechanic.

More Awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more awesome cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Power of the Guardians Type: Equip Spell Appearance: A sacred area with rainbow rays shining all around it. Effect: If an attack is declared by the equipped monster: Place 1 Spell Counter on this card. The equipped monster gains 500 ATK/DEF for each Spell Counter on this card. If the equipped monster would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can remove 1 Spell Counter from your field, instead.

This is a very unique card that is a ton of fun to use. Unlike many Spell Counter cards, this one can be equipped to any monster, and the continuous stat increase is always a good thing. Plus, you have a lot of protection against effects if you amass enough counters.

  • Strong Wind Dragon Type: Dragon/Effect Attribute: Wind Appearance: A very cool looking turquoise dragon with large wings. 6 Stars ATK: 2400 DEF: 1000 Effect: Cannot be destroyed by battle with a monster that has the same ATK. If this card is Tribute Summoned by Tributing a Dragon-Type monster: It gains ATK equal to half the original ATK of the Tributed monster. If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing damage to your opponent.

This is a very good 1 Tribute monster with pretty decent stats. It is usually run in a variety of decks that use Dragons. Alone, it is a powerhouse that cannot be taken out by suicide attacks. The awesome attack boost is also quite incredible, leaving this creature a real force to be reckoned with.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards Part 2

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I really enjoyed doing the last custom post, so I decided to do part 2. Now, let’s have a brawl!

  • Colossal Infernal by SpazzMaticus Type: Warlock Epic Minion Tribe: Demon Appearance: A gigantic green infernal. Mana Cost: 10 Attack: 10 Health: 10 Effect: Battlecry: Deal 5 damage to all other characters.

The Warlock was always a “high risk-high reward” class, and this card fits that mold to a T! It’s a perfect late game card, and can be used as a board clear. Its massive body can also handle a lot of damage.  Keep watch of your health though, as 5 damage is quite a lot.

  • Book of Light by ShadowDragonType: Priest Epic Spell Appearance: A flashing book of ancient knowledge. Mana cost: 5 Effect: Add 3 random Priest spells to your hand.

What we have here is a Cabalist’s Tome for Priests. The cost is equivalent to the mage version, and the randomness factor really pleases me. You could get some board clear utility, healing, summoning, or spell damage increasing tools. I’d love to see this card in an upcoming expansion.

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 Favorite Banned Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for another card post! This post covers some of my favorite cards on the Yu-Gi-Oh! ban list.  These cards were put there for being too strong, or having ridiculously overpowered synergies. Now, let’s Duel!

  • Fiber Jar Type: Plant/Flip/Effect Attribute: EARTH 3 Stars Appearance: A really cool jar in the shape of a jungle’s ecosystem. ATK/ 500 DEF/ 500 Effect: FLIP: Each player shuffles all cards from their hand, field, and Graveyard into the Deck, then draws 5 cards.

This card has one of the most broken effects ever printed. It essentially restarts the duel, and gives each player a new hand. You don’t have to tribute anything to summon it, and it completely destroys your opponent’s strategy. This card has been banned for an extremely long time, and I highly doubt it will ever be able to played in the game.

  • Chaos Emperor Dragon- Envoy Of The End Type: Dragon/Effect Attribute: DARK 9 Stars Appearance: One of the coolest looking dragons in all of Yu-Gi-Oh! ATK/ 3000 DEF/ 2500 Effect: Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand)by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from you Graveyard. You can pay 1000 Life Points; send all cards in both players’ hands and on the field to the Graveyard, then inflict 300 damage to your opponent for each card sent to the Graveyard by this effect.

The original Yu-Gi-Oh! “Boss Monster”! This card is so overpowered, that I got banned almost immediately after creation. It not only has very high attack, but can nuke the field and hands, dealing astonishing amounts of damage.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 182

Lone Digger by Caravan Palace from the album “Robot Face” Released on October 16th, 2015 Genre: Electro Swing

I just recently found out about this band, and immediately fell in love with its amazing sound. The Caravan Palace is an Electro Swing band that comes from Paris. Electro Swing is a music genre that blends the old-fashioned sounds of Swing with modern EDM, House, and Hip-Hop. They started in late 2008, and have become incredibly popular in the resent years. Their second single “Lone Digger”, is one of their most popular songs to date, and its music video has over 123 million views on Youtube. The song starts with various horn instruments and slick female vocals. The lyrics tell the story of a slick cat dancing to the beat of an ancient song. The chorus is an awesome blend of scat-like rapping and rapid fire singing. The music video perfectly goes with the atmosphere and tempo, and is quite brutal in its own right. The video is like a graphic depiction of the circle of life, and my god, it’s incredible! Tell me what you think of the song in the comments’ section below.
