The Lord of the Rings Cast Turned Into Hearthstone Cards

The Lord of the Rings Cast Turned Into Hearthstone Cards

01 - gutmqdt

Imgur user splatypus has created a deck of custom Hearthtone cards based on The Lord of the Rings.

Do you like Hearthstone: Heroes of World and Warcraft? Of course, you do. After all, what isn't there to like about a game that blends the wide appeal of World of Warcraft with the addictive, collectible card gameplay of Magic: The Gathering? Of course, then again, maybe World of Warcraft isn't your fantasy cup of tea. Perhaps you like your flights of card game fancy to be a bit more Tolkien-esque in nature. If that's the case then you might want to check out the custom Lord of the Rings Hearthstone deck created by imgur user splatypus.

Comprised of 37 imaginary cards, splatypus's gallery draws primarily on the films to create a custom and fairly unbalanced deck made up of heroes and villains from the classic fantasy opus. While these, of course, could never be integrated into Hearthstone itself, the cards are nonetheless fun to browse through. If nothing else, it's amusing to see how he interpreted particular characters. Pippin's "Summon 2 1/1 orcs for your opponent" ability in particular put a smile on my face. Check out the gallery and feel free to share other franchises you'd love to see to given a similar Hearthstone treatment (cough Game of Thrones cough).

Some of these are actually pretty damn interesting cards. I personally like the "that still only counts as one" card and would love to see a card like that actually show up in the game.

Really?

I made a bunch of WoW themed MTG cards when I was 12 if you'd like to make a news post on those next. I can totally upload them right now, they're probably still on my hard drive, it's really no trouble at all.

So apparently a single Warg Rider can guarantee at least a 2 for 1 against the Eye of Sauron. Now that's value!

Anyone else notice that the Mind Your Aim card is the scene where Legolas chokes and fails to kill the Olympic uruk-Hai. Those are some pretty nice cards though.

bahhahahahaahhah

Slow new day or what?

Heh, I made mock-MtG + TF2 cards a few years back. Let me try and get a link in.

My take on MtG:TF2

Some of them are grossly underpowered now that I look back at them...
