On abortion owls

I was feeling depressed so I decided to craft some more golden cards for my Hearthstone paladin rush deck that I’ve been playing since not long after my last post.

It’s this one: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/276624-s16-legendary-aggro-paladin

But the one change I make is I drop the 1-mana pirate and have one more Abortion Owl because I think silence is just so useful in so many situations and the most common is stopping a Deathrattle from spawning additional minions– effectively you’re killing a minion that doesn’t exist yet. You’re aborting it.

So I crafted two golden owls. You can see the night sky rotating behind them and holy shit their fucking eyes glow. Evil fucking eye glow, which I guess is appropriate for a bird who performs non-consensual abortions as a combat tactic. And then it hit me. South Park Woodland Critter Christmas Hail Satan! He’s an evil critter that performs abortions! Does anyone else remember that thing? Remember South Park? From the 90s..? Poor little feller.

But anyway, as I wrote this (more or less) I literally just won a game by silencing my opponent’s last ditch tank, propelling me into a win streak. I think silences are really strong in the meta right now. Most decks these days feature some kind of deathrattle or inspire or other trigger that ramps or provides some other critical advantage.

Um, but yeah. I haven’t played wow since I moved house and neglected to tell my guild that I couldn’t make the raids that week and they booted me and I just got down on the game.

I’ve been playing this indie-ish RPG that I found on Steam called Darkest Dungeon. It’s roguelike and really mathy and I can barely progress and I fucking love it. The positioning mechanic is really interesting, and as I say that I realise it probably qualifies for nerdiest thing said ever. I swear to god positioning is fucking interesting motherfucker. Didn’t you ever play Kwirk? Or like, um, Boxxle?

I think I’m out of things to say.

Does anyone read this?
