Hearthstone Special! Some Of My Favorite Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow travelers! It’s Tuesday, and it’s time for a special post! Last week, I decided to do two Hearthstone posts. You guys seemed to really enjoy it, so I am going to do another one. There’s tons of cards in the game, and choosing my favorites is a very difficult task. So, I’ve decided to share many of the cards I like. Keep in mind, this is in no particular order, it’s just the cards that I find to be the most useful. Now, let’s begin!

  • Unstable Portal Mage Spell Mana Cost: 2 Rare Effect: Add a random minion to your hand. It costs (3) less.

The great and incredibly useful Unstable Portal. This card has been around for ages, and god, it’s amazing! The randomness of the card makes it very fun to play, and the ability to summon ANY minion makes it have endless possibilities. It’s a card that can make or break a game. The card is so much fun to use that a Tavern Brawl incorporates a full deck of them. I highly recommend this card even if the RNG isn’t always in your favor.

  • Ragnaros the Firelord Legendary Neutral Elemental Minion Mana Cost: 8 Stats:   ATK 8 Health 8  Effect: Can’t attack. At the end of your turn, deal 8 damage to a random enemy.

DIE INSECT!!! If that cry doesn’t make you tremble in fear, you’ve obviously never met this deadly foe. He was one of the first incredible Legendaries in Hearthstone, and god, he packs a punch! Not being able to attack aside, his effect is cataclysmic to the enemy. 8 points of random damage to anything is extremely damaging, and can end the game in a matter of turns. Even if you silence it, it still can hurt, and it dies with great difficulty.

More Of My Favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to show some more of my cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Number 49: Fortune Tune Attribute: Light Winged Beast XYZ Effect Monster Rank: 3 ATK/ 400 DEF/ 900 Effect: Requires 2 Level 3 Monsters. During each of your Standby Phases: Gain 500 Life Points. This card cannot be targeted by card effects. If this face-up card would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. When this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: Target 2 Level 3 monsters  in your Graveyard; shuffle them both into the Deck, and if you do, return this card from the Graveyard into the Extra Deck. This effect can only be used once per turn. Appearance: A light blue heron with red tail feathers.

Ah, the good old Fortune Tune. I both love and absolutely despise this card. If you use it, it’ll drive your opponent completely crazy! If you play against it you’ll pop a blood vessel. Its immunity to being targeted makes this card harder to deal with than pulling teeth! Then, if you finally kill it, it just goes back into the Extra Deck, make your life hell once again.

  • Superdimensional Robot Galaxy Destroyer Attribute: Light Type: Machine XYZ   Effect Monster Rank: 10 ATK/ 5000 DEF/ 2000 Effect: Requires 3 Level 10 monsters. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; destroy all Spells and Traps Cards your opponent controls. Your opponent cannot activate Spells/Trap Cards in response to this effect’s activation. Appearance: An awesome robot with giant wings and a blue body.  

This card is extremely powerful, and has a very fantastic effect. The only issue is trying to summon it, but if you do, your opponent is as good as dead! They’ll have to rely on monsters, and it’s very difficult to top a 5000 ATK behemoth.

Hall Of Legends: Awesome Comic Book Characters (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some awesome characters. Now, let’s begin!

  • Cyborg Real Name: Victor Stone Status: Hero Creator: DC Ht: 6’6” Wt: 385 lbs Eyes: Brown: Hair: Black First Appeared: DC Comics Presents #26 (October 1980) Powers/Weapons: Cybernetic implants which give him exceptional strength, durability and hacking abilities. Jet boots are used for flight, and arms can transform into projectile weapons or energy. Genius-level intellect.

Victor was the son of two scientists who used their research to improve the world. They worked for STAR Labs, a private facility that had branches all over the world. His father, Silas, used his son as a test subject, and gave him enhanced intelligence. One faithful day changed Victor’s life forever, and it all started with a regular visit to his parent’s lab. Silas mistakenly allowed a multi-dimensional creature into his workplace. The creature killed Victor’s mom, and nearly annihilated his body. Silas quickly returned the being to its dimension, and used cybernetic implants to save Victor’s life. Infuriated by his new body, Victor moved to Hell’s Kitchen, a notably dangerous neighborhood. He eventually met Raven, who invited him to join the Teen Titans. He found solace within the team, and became a reliable member, as well as an invaluable source of technology.

  • Scarecrow Real Name: Dr. Jonathan Crane Status: Super Villain Creator: DC Ht: 6 ft Wt: 140 lbs Eyes: Green Hair: Brown First Appeared: World’s Finest Comics #3 (Fall 1941) Powers/Weapons: Extremely intelligent, brilliant psychiatrist and chemist, uses fear gas that causes people to experience their worst nightmares, other various toxic weapons.

Dr. Crane was raised by his sadistic father, who often experimented with fear. This fascination would rub off on Jonathan in the worst way. He was a very shy child that mainly focused on his studies. Crane became a successful Psychologist professor, but his methods disturbed his students. He then became a Psychologist, and this is when the true horrors began. Upon attacking one of his patients, Crane created a costume and started a career as a fiend of terror. The fear he was subjected to as a child became the main tools of his trade. He clashed with Batman on many occasions, and in a particularly gruesome moment, stitched up his own mouth shut to resemble his disturbing moniker.

My Least Favorite Hearthstone Cards (Counting Down to Witchwood)

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the Witchwood countdown! With the expansion getting released tomorrow, I’ve been binging hard on this game. With 1,459 cards already in the game, not all are created equal. I have decided to share with you guys some of the cards that I find useless. Keep in mind, that this is my own personal opinion, and that yours may be different. Constructive criticism is most definitely welcome, so be sure to tell me what you think in the comments’ section below. Now, let’s begin!

  • Millhouse Manastorm Type: Legendary Mana Cost: 2 4 ATK 4 Health Battlecry: Enemy spells cost (0) next turn.

Ugh! I absolutely hate this card! The amount of attack and health is very good for a 2-cost minion, but the Battlecry is just hot garbage! Spells are an integral part of the game, and this makes your opponent obliterate you with them. If you use this against a Mage, you’re as good as dead!

  • Unlicensed Apothecary Type: Epic Warlock Minion (Demon) Mana Cost: 3  ATK 5 Health 5 Battlecry: After you summon a minion, deal 5 damage to your hero.

The Warlock class is known for “high risk high reward” gameplay, but this card overdoes it! You only get 30 health, and every time a new minion is summoned, you get closer to death. I highly recommend dusting this crap ASAP.

  • Magma Rager Type: Common (Elemental) 5 ATK 1 Health No Effect

The pathetic Magma Rager has been a joke ever since its creation, and it’s completely rubbish. First, the stats on this minion are terrible, and it can’t be played easily. Second, it can’t attack the turn it’s summoned, so it’s easily killed. Hearthwiki even rated it as the worst card in the game.

Witchwood Excitement: The New Hearthstone Cards I’m Really Looking Forward to Playing

Hello everyone, and welcome to a very special post! I have been a huge fan of Hearthstone for quite a while, and finally want to discuss it on my blog. In case you didn’t know, Hearthstone is a “Free to Play” collectable card game made by Blizzard Entertainment. The rules are very similar to Magic The Gathering, and uses many characters from World of Warcraft. You can play as nine different classes, each with a different hero; Mage (Jaina Proudmoore), Druid (Malfurion Stormrage), Warrior (Garrosh Hellscream), Warlock (Gul’dan), Shaman (Thrall), Priest (Anduin Wrynn), Hunter (Rexxar), Rogue (Valeera Sanguinar), and Paladin (Uther Lightbringer). Each of these classes has a different “Hero Power” which can be activated once per turn for two mana. Each hero starts with 30 health and 0 mana crystals. The mana crystals will increase by one on each of your turns with it maxing out at ten. Every time you summon a minion, it’ll be unable to attack the turn its summoned unless it has charge. It also has three symbols; the mana crystal cost, the amount of health, and the attack. Whoever can reduce a hero’s health to 0 will win the game. Cards are classified by typing and rarity. The gem on each of the cards also tells you how valuable it is. A white gem means common, blue means rare, purple means epic, and yellow means legendary. Each player can have a deck of 30 cards with varying mana cost. Some cards are class specific, and may not be used by other classes under normal circumstances. The card types include; secrets (cards that are inactive until a certain action is performed), spells (basic magic cards that have many different effects), weapons (these are equipped to your hero, can be used once per turn, and have a durability meter), battlecry (these effects occur when a creature is summoned), deathrattle (effect occurs after minion is destroyed), overload (upon using this type of card, a certain number of mana crystals is locked for a period of turns), poisonous (a minion that attacks this type of card will be killed, regardless of health and attack), taunt (minions must attack a creature with this effect), lifesteal (recovers health after damage), divine shield (negates damage once, and doesn’t reduce health) discover (your get to choose a card out of three random cards), and recruit (allows you to summon a minion from your deck). The newest expansion has also included two new card types; echo (allows you to play as many copies of this card as you can with your mana crystals), and rush (can attack minions when it’s summoned, but not heroes). With all of that out of the way, let’s begin!

  • Prince Liam Mana Cost: 5 Type: Legendary Health: 5 Attack: 5 Class: Paladin Battlecry: Transform all 1-Cost cards in your deck into Legendary minions.

This card is going to be a lot of fun to play. Its effect can be truly devastating depend on what type of Paladin you are playing. It gives you the excuse to use weak monsters, and then upgrade them into massive powerhouses. Its cost is a bit much though, and due to the randomness of the Battlecry, you could be in more trouble than before. Estimated Rating: 6/10

  • Blazing Invocation Mana Cost: 1 Type: Rare Spell Shaman Effect: Discover a Battlecry minion.

Shaman has been having a pretty hard time lately with the newest expansions. This card, however, could be a game changer.The amount of Battlecry minions in the game is outstanding, and this could be extremely versatile.

  • Lady in White Mana Cost: 6 Type: Priest Legendary 5 Attack 5 Health Battlecry: Cast ‘Inner Fire’ on every minion in your deck (set Attack equal to Health).

Here we have my absolute favorite new card from the expansion. Inner Fire was always a great card, and this just puts it on Steroids! The high health creatures in your deck are now godlike, and your opponent is completely screwed! I can’t wait to get this amazing card!
