Heathstone Meets Game of Thrones in a Glorious Fantasy Mashup
Since June of last year, the Wars vs. Thrones subreddit has been a guilty pleasure for fans of Game of Thrones and Star Wars alike. If you thought that would be the best Game of Thrones mash-up to come out of Reddit, you were wrong. An imaginative fan, going by the name of GameofStones created a new set of Hearthstone cards based on the Game of Thrones television series, and they are just as awesome as you would imagine.
Melding Hearthstone with one of our favorite fantasy franchises leads to some interesting card attributes, derived from key properties displayed by the characters they represent. For example, Brienne gains +1 attack every time a friendly minion takes damage from a spell. Tyrion is the overpowered bastard child of Sunfury Protector and Nat Pagle, having a static ability granting all minions adjacent to him taunt while also drawing an extra card at the start of each turn.
These cards are great, but there are clear atrocities afoot. For example, Jon Snow is a Warrior card, but the token he summons is a Hunter card. That aside, Ghost should have the same power and toughness, if not greater, than Snow himself. Have you seen the size of that direwolf? And what about Sandor Clegane and his obvious weakness to fire? Any fire spells effecting Sandor should allow the controller of said spell to take control of him. Finally, let’s not forget that if Oberyn Martell is going to take out any minion damaged by him, he needs a poison vial on his card face.
