‘I think we’re dead’: StrifeCro snatches victory from the jaws of defeat

Blingtron 3000 is one of the best cards in Hearthstone

Blingtron 3000 is one of the best cards in Hearthstone. I mean, best in the sense that it isn’t the most useful or playable. But the best in that can create some crazy situations with shiny golden weapons.

Unstable Portal is a natural partner to Blingtron if you enjoy the crazy randomness that Hearthstone often provides. Picking one of the over 350 minions and putting it into your hand with the mana cost reduced by three, it can make just about anything happen.

On his stream this week, Cong “StrifeCro” Shu experienced one of the craziest possible combinations of RNG in the game.

Running into last month’s No. 1 legend player “Fibonacci,” Shu utters the immortal words “I think we’re dead” just a few minutes before this video. How wrong he was.

With an Unstable Portal topdeck, Shu naturally throws it out straight away and gets the Blingtron. Though he’s amused by this, it still doesn’t save. Or does it? Playing the Blingtron, Shu manages to get the highest damage weapon in the game, Gorehowl, for exact lethal to claim an improbable victory.

Blingtron 3000: Undeniably strong. Sometimes.
