As you probably know by now, Riot Games has just announced Legends of Runeterra and we have a whopping 316 cards - and that's not even counting the tokens! While looking at the card database, some of the cards caught our eye, all of which for a certain reason; They're just like cards from Hearthstone, some glaringly so.
Let's take a look at those similar cards.
Don't forget to give us a follow on Facebook and Twitter or join us on our Discord to talk about Runeterra!
He Got It Out! And Moved It... To A Different Card Game.
Our friendly Possessed Villager we saw back in Whispers of the Old Gods seems to have gotten everything out of his system, and transferred it over to somewhere else. That somewhere else would be Riot's new card game (such a toxic relationship).
And yeah, there's Mecharoo, but this is more on flavor.
Runeterra Rolled Need (or Weed)
Do you think Avarosan Sentry secretly smokes weed in that tower? That would explain why his effect is a Last Breath.
Silver in Originality, Gold in Hilarity
Fewer stats as its Hearthstone counterpart, but still just as silly.
Keeping With The C's.
In the midst of transferring to a different card game, it also seems to have forgotten that it can hit enemies.
Now With 100% Less Card Draw!!!
Arguably the biggest meme card in the game from Hearthstone, and it's in Legends of Runeterra. Sure, it doesn't cycle itself anymore, but who cares? It's Purify.
Quite the Conspiracy
Looking at another card, copying it, and making it a little bit different. Some call it plagiarism. He calls it "conspiring".
The Identity Crisis Continues
Poor Succubus. She thought she had everything figured out when she became a Felstalker. Turns out, that was only the beginning.
The Scales Have Tipped
Don't tell him that he copied Druid of the Flame or he'll snap at you.
There Are No Goons, There Is Only Grime
I guess someone took the "grimy" part of the name a little too literally. He should probably take a shower.
It Still Goes On
Things may look a little different now, but we still don't have an answer to the lifelong question: How long can this go on?
Reclaiming the Idea
After Wretched Reclaimer claims the friendly Reincarnation effect for Hearthstone in their most recent set, Saviors of Uldum, Chronicler of Ruin is announced and claims the same effect for Legends of Runeterra. Did Chronicler of Ruin claim the effect first during production, or did they try to claim it after Wretched Reclaimer claimed it themselves?
A Literal Copycat
It feels someone took a little bit too much inspiration from their main competitor. Very shady indeed.
I Didn't See This Coming
In all fairness, it's hard to foresee this.
(Bonus) The Meme Transcends
If you thought you would escape the memes when you moved to a different card game... Think again.
(Bonus) Hearthstone Called, It Wants Its Keyword Back. Oh, Wait...
It just so happens that Legends of Runeterra has a keyword called Elusive. Mechanically, their version is basically Flying from Magic: The Gathering, but it shares the same name as the mechanic from Hearthstone that we've been trying to keyword forever. One only has to wonder...
