My Favorite Tavern Brawls

Hello everybody, and welcome to another Hearthstone post! This post will cover one of the most fun aspects of the game, the Tavern Brawl. A Tavern Brawl occurs every Wednesday, and lasts until 1:00 A.M. on Monday. You must have reached Level 20 with one class in order to play. The brawl essentially rewrites the rules of the game, either giving you a random deck with strange perks, or you create one from scratch. You also get a standard pack for your first victory. The following is a list of my favorite brawls, and the rules that go along with them.

  • Spiders, Spiders, EVERYWHERE! This excellent brawl has the classes battling it out with a deck full of Webspinners and 7 random class spells. Webspinner is a one cost minion with a deathrattle that adds a random beast to your hand. There are 104 beasts in the game so the random number generator is extremely diverse. I adore this brawl for its random factor, and the fact that you’ll never get the same minions. The brawl made its first appearance on July 5th, 2015. 

 

  • ShiftCon: This brawl has classes fighting with randomized decks filled with Shifter Zerus’ and random class spells. Shifter Zerus is a Legendary minion that transforms into another minion every turn. You start with three mana crystals, so it’s easier to get a minion to summon. The brawl first appeared on June 29th, 2016.

 

  • Too Many Portals! This could possibly be my favorite brawl of all time! Players battle with decks full of Unstable Portals and 7 random spells. Unstable Portal adds a random minion to your hand, and it costs 3 mana less. The brawl first appeared on July 29th, 2015.

More Crazy Urban Dictionary Entries (Saturdays)

NSFW Content Ahead!

Hello everyone! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crazy entries. Now, let’s begin!

  • Bean Dip Slang: Raise the underboob of a man or woman with your index and second finger. 

Example: Cameron gave Lori a “bean dip” to celebrate the fun evening.

  • Suka  Russian Insult: Means “bitch” in an angry way. 

Example: Shut up suka!

  • Holosexual Sexual Preference: Someone who is sexually attracted to holographic things (e.g.: Nail polishes, poster boards, phone cases, etc.)

Example: Person 1: Look at that person’s holo collection! Person 2: They must be a holosexual.

 

Strange Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

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

  • Yado Karu Type: Aqua/Effect Attribute: Water 4 Stars ATK/ 900 DEF/ 1700 Appearance: A strange, green, snake-like crab with a spiky shell. Effect: When this card is changed from Attack Position to Defense Position, you can place any number of cards from your hand at the bottom of the Deck in any order you desire.

This strange card has never been played in any deck I’ve ever faced. Its effect is extremely situational, and it doesn’t have enough health to survive almost any attack.

  • Nuvia The Wicked Type: Fiend/Effect Attribute: Dark 4 Stars ATK/ 2000 DEF/ 800 Appearance: A cool looking demigod with a serpentine tail and two large hands. Effect: If this card is Normal Summoned, it is destroyed. The ATK of this card is decreased by 200 points for each monster on your opponent’s side of the field.

You’re probably thinking; “Wow! A 2000 ATK 4 Star monster!”, then you get to its effect, and everything goes downhill. It kills itself immediately after its Normal Summoned, and even when Special Summoned, it’s still incredibly week. I have a very hard time figuring out how to use this trash in any deck.

More Fascinating SCPS (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello fellow researchers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at our newest anomalies. Now, grab your Class S protective equipment, and let’s begin our analysis!

  • SCP-229 The Wire Weed Object Class: Euclid  Description: SCP-229 appears to be a mass of wires and cables. Superficially, they appear to be raw copper wire, insulated Ethernet cable, phone cable, power lines, and many other forms of electrical cable. The current mass weighs 94 kg at last measurement. 

SCP-229 is tentatively identified as a form of silicon-based life. SCP-229 is a highly invasive parasite, attacking anything carrying even a low electrical current. SCP-229 will grow several centimeters every hour, and form connectors to attach to electrical power sources (wall socket plugs, USB connectors, etc.). SCP-229 will also splice itself into power lines and existing wires if no connection is available. SCP-229 appears to “feed” off electricity.  

SCP-229 appears to go dormant when not in the presence of an electrical source. Any electrical current within thirty meters, no matter how small, will immediately cause SCP-229 to “grow” in the direction of the electricity  Questions regarding the possible intelligence and sensory organs of SCP-229 are still under investigation.

SCP-229 appears to “grow” best on metal or plastic, but is very capable of infesting living tissue. In vertebrate animals, SCP-229 will quickly penetrate the epidermis and other tissues, attaching to and enveloping the spine. SCP-229 will then grow along nerve pathways and up into the brain, attaching it and infesting it within a few days. This process appears to be extremely painful, and can cause very erratic  behavior. When the infested subject nears death, usually from massive internal bleeding and brain damage, SCP-229 will exit the body by puncturing through the skin and attaching to any nearby structures, thus beginning the cycle again.

It is theorized that SCP-229 has always been present in our ecosystem, but that the technological level, and thereby the availability of electricity was insufficient to allow its spread. With the current prevalence of wires and other electrical devices, detection can be extremely difficult. Incineration is the best means for SCP-229 removal.

Savage Land Mutates Special

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and it’s time to take a look at another mutant team. This week’s team, the Savage Land Mutates. Now, let’s begin!

 The Savage Land Mutates are a group of supervillians that first appeared in X-Men #62 from 1969. This team was artificially mutated by Magneto, which gave them superpowers. They became staunch supporters of the magnetic villain and his clash with the X-Men. After a short period of time, Magneto abandoned the team, and left the group to do as they please. They continue to be common enemies of the Avengers, X-Men, and Spider-Man.

  •  Brainchild Real Name: Unknown Status: Villain First Appeared: X-Men #62 ( November 1, 1969) Ht: 5’4” Wt: 125 lbs Powers/Abilities: Computer-like superhuman intelligence, mind control

The mutant known as Brainchild is the leader of the Savage Land Mutates. He is incredibly intelligent, and has a very easy time controlling people’s minds. He once brainwashed Storm into battling her teammates, but was quickly defeated by the X-Men.

  • Lorelei Real Name: Lani Ubanu  Status: Villain First Appeared: X-Men #63 (December 1, 1969) Ht: 5’6” Wt: 125 lbs Powers/Abilities: Generates hypersonic pitches that affect the sexual drives of men and mesmerizes them. 

Lani was artificially enhanced by Magneto. She gained the power to manipulate any male she would come in contact with. This power is rendered useless, however, if it’s used on a woman. Also, Wolverine appears to not be affected by this.
