unstoppable combos

Ilvermorny/Hogwarts Combos

I’ve seen a couple of these posts, so I thought I’d try my hand at it. Go through the potential combinations of Ilvermorny and Hogwarts houses and write a bit about what they represent to me. Not based on any data or polling, just on what seems to make sense to me:

Thunderbird Gryffindor: Thunderbird house is said to favour adventurers, and this is perhaps the most literal interpretation. Thundergryffins tend to be explorers and thrill seekers. Their bravery is not necessarily geared to some righteous cause (though this combo does not preclude that) they simply want their life filled with excitement. As such they can be easily bored which can make them irascible if they are deprived of stimulation. But they are bound to make interesting the lives of any who calls them friend.

Thunderbird Hufflepuff: Thunderpuffs focus on is on experiencing things with friends. These people are not ones for solitude, they will go stir crazy left on their own for a couple of days. It seems they’re always on lunches out, at parties, on trips. It’s not so much the activity that matters so much as the company. They just love people and want to experience as much of mankind as possible.

Thunderbird Ravenclaw: This is my house combination. Thunderclaws are the creatives and innovators. Luna and her parents would all find themselves in this category. If Thunderbirds are adventurers, Thunderclaws prefer to adventure via stories - sitting curled up with a good book as their mind takes them to far off worlds beyond anything that can be experienced in reality. They are dreamers and idealists and can often get their heads lost in the clouds. It can be painful for them when their dreams do not match up with reality and perhaps the oft-found obsession with fiction is an escape.

Thunderbird Slytherin: Thunderins are definitely more on the ambitious side of Slytherin house. They aspire to achieve greatness. For them their adventure is the road to success, and the luxuries that success brings. They definitely appreciate the finer things in life and their ambition tends to be towards living the high life rather than being some lofty goal. Nonetheless Thunderins are often some of the most driven and passionate folk you will ever meet.

Wumpus Gryffindor:  Unshakeable in their convictions and unmatched in their tenacity, Wumpindors are soldiers through and through. Their causes may be righteous or not, but like the beast from which House Wumpus gets its name, Wumpindors are nigh unstoppable. This combo has a dark reputation and Wumpindors may tend towards anger and aggression. They can be quick to see force as the best option in a crisis. They are ultimately fighters - Not merely people who will fight, but people for whom fighting is their way of life and their first resort.

Wumpus Hufflepuff: If you think of the quintessential social justice warrior, that is a Wumpuff. I do not use the term SJW in an inherently negative term as many do. Rather, Hufflepuffs are concerned with honour and fairplay and as such Wumpuffs cannot stand seeing injustice in the world and seek to eradicate it. They will fight fiercely to protect their friends, but their protective instincts apply to the whole world. This can result in them lashing out at people who they see as part of the problem but at their hearts they simply wish to fight for a better world.

Wumpus Ravenclaw: Wumpenclaws are the practical Ravenclaws. These people have ideas and they want them implemented damn it! They are excellent planners and incredibly organised. This combo favours strategists, business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Wumpus Slytherin: Ruthlessness incarnate, Wumperins have lofty ambitions and will do absolutely anything to achieve them. This is probably the combo with the darkest reputation. I would put Voldemort himself in this category. But do not let you think this is an inherently bad combo, any more than Slytherin itself is. If a Wumperin’s ambition is a benign one their passion for achieving their goals is bound to result in success. And if their cause is righteous, a Wumperin can spark a revolution.

Pukwudgie Gryffindor: Anyone would be fortunate to call a Pukindor a friend, for they are perhaps the fiercest allies one could have. Their loyalty and the bonds of friendship that they form are unbreakable. When their friends are down and out they will be the ones to light a fire beneath them, and then rain hell down on whoever did their friend wrong.

Pukwudgie Hufflepuff: In my mind Puffs and Puks have a lot of similarities, so a Puklepuff represents the idea of the quintessential Hufflepuff. These people are the gentlest souls you will ever meet, kind, nurturing and supportive. The Cinammon Rolls of the world. They may well be great cooks or simply have a great love of food - or indeed of anything which brings people together.

Pukwudgie Ravenclaws: Pukenclaws are people who use their ideas and intellect to help others. Pukwudgies are known for being healers and it is in this combination that that becomes most literal - Pukenclaws are often Doctors, nurses, vets or surgeons. In their day to day life they are adept at finding the easiest solutions to problems - the masters of “lifehacks”.

Pukwudgie Slytherin: I’ve often said that Slytherins are the type of people to low-key ruin the lives of anyone who wrongs their friends. People often overlook that Slytherins are incredibly loyal to one another and it is in the Pukerin combo that this quality shines through. The focus here is less on ambition and more on cunning and ruthlessness - more specifically the cunning and ruthlessness required for the Pukerins family (be that literal and/or metaphorical) to survive. And when they or their loved ones are wronged, they are not above enacting a terrible, yet subtle vengeance.

Horned Serpent Gryffindors: Serpendors are people with an area (or areas) of expertise and they know it. They are self-assured in what they are good at (and know what they are bad at) and this surety results in unmatched confidence and competence in that area. That classic Gryffindor bravery comes through in their ideas and their execution. They are independent and efficient. Hermione would be a proud Serpendor, as would McGonagall.

Horned Serpent Hufflepuffs: An unusual combination, as the warmth and heart of Hufflepuff may seem at odds with the detached analysis of Horned Serpent. However funnily enough I think that Isolt Sayre herself falls into this combo. Serpenpuffs know people. They are excellent judges of character and know what makes people tick. They may find promising careers in psychology. They are well meaning but they may feel the need to coddle their friends and family (just as Isolt refused to tell her children of Gormlaith even into their teenage years) and they can at times be aloof and irascible. If you are friends with a Serpenpuff you can probably expect a couple of fallings out (just as Isolt did with William), but in the end they care for their loved ones deeply.

Horned Serpent Ravenclaws: These two houses share many similarities, and of the four Ilvermorny Houses, Horned Serpent is the one with the most direct Hogwarts counterpart here. As such Serpentclaws represent the “stereotypical” Ravenclaw. Aloof, cool and analytical, these are the academics. Their work is done in papers and in the lab, but the implications can be world changing. They need to be mentally stimulated at all times and as such prefer the company of other intellectuals.

Horned Serpent Slytherins: Slytherserpents have a focus on the cunning aspect of Slytherin house. They are always the ones with the plan and that plan is more often than not at least a little underhanded. While other Slytherins may let their ambitions outmatch their abilities, Slytherserpents never have this problem. They do not achieve their ends through brute force and ruthlessness (as Wumperins do) but through subtle tricks and manipulations.

Top 5 Thursday: Iconic champion duos

By Helmight

Rakan and Xayah were tailor-made to play well with each other, but League of Legends has plenty of other iconic duos. These champs go as well together as peanut butter and jelly do, and you can hardly think of one without immediately thinking of the other. Today, I break down the top 5 duos in the game.

#5: Taric/Ezreal

I blame the fangirls for this one, personally.

Ezreal/Taric didn’t really have any synergies beyond them both being good early game champions that could threaten all-ins fairly safely. However, the strength of the lane meant that it was played near-constantly in Season 2, and inevitably that led to the shipping. Makes me shudder just thinking of it.

Like it or not, Ezreal/Taric is one of the iconic lane pairs from the olden days, so it still deserves to make the list. Not giving it higher than fifth place, though.

#4: Double Ninja Dive Comp

This one is fairly new, but immediately caught my attention when TSM brought it out. Watching two ninjas dive the backline by themselves is just so satisfying to watch, and is made even better due to their lore connection. 

On top of that, they cover each other’s weaknesses well. Zed brings the damage and the mobility, while Shen protects the Master of Shadows and keeps his targets locked down. It plays so nicely that it definitely deserved a spot on the list, despite its relative newness.

#3: The Balista Combo

Kalista and Blitzcrank make the list by sheer virtue of their interactions with Fate’s Call. Pulling some poor unfortunate champion about half a lane is hilarious, if not particularly strong in practice. Fate’s Call can also be used to fling Blitz into the middle of the enemy team for a five-man knockup, followed by a five-man silence from Static Field. Can’t get much better than that.

#2: Curse of the Sad Bullet Time

What do a bounty hunter and a sad mummy have in common? Not much, besides their incredibly strong teamfight ultimates. Bullet Time deals Tons of Damage ™, but requires Miss Fortune to stand still and channel. It’s easy to interrupt and relatively easy to avoid - unless you’ve just been cursed by Amumu. You’ve got no chance to run away from a hail of bullets when you’re all wrapped up in bandages.

The combo’s been around since the beginning of League of Legends and is the original wombo combo, so Miss Fortune and Amumu have become an iconic pair by default.

#1: Caught between a rock and a sharp blade

This one was a match tailor-made in heaven. I’m pretty sure we all immediately thought of this when Phreak explained how Yasuo’s ult works, and to this day I still see Malphite picked about 50% more often when his team has a Yasuo on it. The sheer power of combo-ing Unstoppable Force into Last Breath makes it one of the most potent wombo combos in the game and propels this pairing to first place almost by itself.

Of course, it’s also amusing to think of the flavor implications. The champion most closely related to earth, knocking enemies into the air for a Last Breath? Makes me smile every time I think of it, and guarantees that Yasuo and Malphite take the top spot.


Let me know your favorite champion duos in the comments, and be sure to like and reblog this post if you enjoyed it!

DOMESTIC LIFE WITH STEVE HEADCANON

Okay, so I’ve tried to post this 3x, but every time it keeps reformatting 🙄 hopefully this is the last time

Also, this is my first time writing headcanons, so let’s see how this goes!

_________________________

~ You always wake up in a mountain of covers

~ He loves to make breakfast for the both of you

~ “You gonna eat those pancakes, Rogers?”

~ “Well I guess not, now.”

~Watching the daily news is a must

~ He’ll occasionally talk about what it was like before he became a super soldier

~ Sometimes he busts out the old sketchbook

~ Surprisingly, he doesn’t sound too bad, but it’s still comical

~ You take videos and send them to the rest of the Avengers

~ “Tony called me ‘American Idol’ today, and I have no clue what that means.”

~ You and Steve alternate nights on who cooks

~ On Steve’s nights he always tries to go all out

~ This usually results with a few cuts and beeping smoke alarms

~ “I thought we’d try something more…..Cajun?”

~ At the end of the meal, you both are an unstoppable dishwashing and drying combo

~ Showers are never sexual, just relaxing and soothing

~ Steve just stares lovingly at you as you try to rinse all of the shampoo out of his hair

~ When it comes time for bed, you both like to cuddle up and turn on an old film as you drift off to sleep

~ Steve tries, and fails, to fall asleep after you

~ You stay awake just a bit longer just to see all of the little lines of tension ease from his face

~ Somehow, you always end up scooped up on Steve’s chest when you wake up

Utapri x Free! Halloween crossover

I love a lot Utafree! (crossover between Utapri and Free! :D) so here this time some of my headcanons and observations for Utafree Halloween crossover where free! boys  and utapri boys will spend Halloween together. :D 

Especially for my teddy bear Lola-chan @miyakuli and fluffy Rachel @racyue :D.

What’s the most important is the fact that in official arts Free! and Utapri boys have quite similar types of Halloween costumes. :D So thanks to this on UtaFree! Halloween party we have:

❤ Two witches who are our adorable blond shotas :D Nagisa and Syo. :D 

And as you see they are great combo in collecting sweets. :D I can totally imagine these two would be the most excited in doing trick-or-treating. :D (and besides who could say “no” to these sweet blond witches?! I would give them all sweets of this world :D)

❤ Two silent dark-haired beauties with blue eyes in ghost costume. :D It’s Haru and Masato of course. :D

i guess these two would be these who would be the most calm on this Halloween party but they will be enjoying this a lot and will be happy to be able to spend time with all their precious friends (and even if they both wouldn’t be saying too much they would understand each other very good and would be good friends ). :D And besides Haru would be protecting his cute Makoto boyfriend from all “scary” things Mako-chan would be scared of. :)

❤ Two hot yet dorky ;) vampires: Rei and Ren. :D (so thehe we have VampiRei and VampiRen :D)  

I have this image that Ren would want to teach Rei how to be super hot cool vampire.. but in the end both of them would be just cute dorks and comedic relief of this party. buhahaha (sorry babies :*)  And  besides Halloween atmosphere and vampire costume would cause that Ren will get in very romantic and affectionate mood (and will want to bite cute neck of his cute Masato boyfriend ;)) so embarrassed poor Masato ghost would have to calming him all the time because they are in public ;). :D 

❤ We have also two handsome warewolves (and both has Mamoru Miyano voice :D) Rin and Tokiya. :D

I guess both would be at first quite embarrassed by their fluffy costumes. ;) but then their adorable boyfriends Nitori and Otoya would be saying how cool they look and would want to pat their fluffy ears and would want to cuddle to them so tehehe Rin and Tokiya would start to enjoy this Hallowen party. ;) 

❤ There we also have two the biggest sweethearts ever Makoto and Natsuki. :D and even if they don’t have exactly the same costumes. :D 

Because one is Frankenstein’s monster and other mummy, it’s quite sweet that such cutie pies want to be “scary” having costumes of  scaaaaary monsters from horror movies.  ;) and on the same time.. they are probably soo scared by everything during Halloween. :D (awww babies :* let me hug you both:*)   and haha almost all Halloween they will spend behind  backs of their brave patient boyfirends Haru and Syo (who are soooo much smaller than their adorable scared boyfriends :D) hiding by all stuff they will be afraid. :D Haha Halloween is such scary day for them but together with their protective boyfriends they are o.k and they have maaaany fun. :D

❤ Plus we have lil lovely devil- Otoya. :)

And i’m sure his adorable Free! countrapoint in Free could be Kisumi. :D 

Buhaha Kisumi would be in pinky devil costume ;)). Adorable devils attack! :D And haha i get this feeling that Kisumi could get a little too touchy with his lil devil friend Otoya ;) which will make Otoya’s boyfriend Tokiya to react in Haru’s style (when Kisumi is too touchy with Mako and it wakes up Haru’s adorable jealous mode :D). :D So be careful Kisumi baby :* i geuss jealous Tokiya can be veeeeery danegrous. ;) and don’t forget he is warewolf!. ;)  

❤ Besides we have also this cute official art of Quartet Night boys in Halloween costumes- Peter Pan version. :D 

This one who has the biggest fun is of course Reiji. :D And he would be making up the most funny and crazy Halloween games for all UtaFree crew. :D

And I think that rest of Samezuka boys would also look great in such Peter Pan costumes. :D

Momo would be Peter Pan like Reiji. :D (such unstoppable combo of two Peter Pans full of energy and smile :D)

Ai (Nitori) would be Tinker bell like Ai Mikaze. :D Both are so adorable, awwww double Ai team as Tinker bells are waaaay too cute :D They would make everyone melt sooo much. and I have this feeling that they could be great friends. :D Nitori thanks to his lovely heart and his sensibility could learn Ai Miakze tons of things about people and life :D And Mikaze could help Nitori in enhancing his swimming thanks the amaizng datebase and wisdom Ai Mikaze has :D ). 

Seijuro would be wearing pirate costume like Camus, and Sousuke  Indian costume like Ranmaru. :D (Can i start nosebleeding? :D) 

And hmmm I geuss Gou could have Wendy costume? Like I’m sure Rin would also invite her for this UtaFree! Halloween party. Tho I’m pretty sure Mikoshiba bros, I mean Momo Pan and pirate Seijuro would be chasing her during all this  party and saying how cute she is. ;)  But no worries :D i’m sure Sou-kun would protect cute Gou Wendy. :D 

Happy UtaFree Halloween for everyone. :D

Trick or Treat? :D

Mono-Black Discard Package

Today’s article is all about depriving your opponents of one of their most precious resources: cards in hand. 

We start with Waste Not, an engine which gives you upsides regardless of what your opponents throw away. In a large game with enough people, I’ve seen this card become an unstoppable combo with Words of Waste.

Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists and Gibbering Descent all just sit there and do your work for you! There aren’t many decks which can work through discarding three cards a turn.

Rotting Rats makes everyone lose a card, not just your opponents; maybe you can throw away something nice for reanimating later? Then you have it as a nice little blocker, which, once dead, unearths itself, crawls back into the light of day, and steals another card from everyone.

Syphon Mind and Geth’s Grimoire also work as nice card draw engines so you can make your opponents discard even more! Everyone’s happy when you’re the only one playing Magic!
