As the name of the deck implies, it is a deck made out of
Charms and Potions lessons. The main strategy of the deck is to hit and
run, especially since there aren't any Creature cards in this deck.
The main witch of this deck is Hermione
Granger. I chose her because of her useful effect of playing twice the
amount of Lesson actions, making it easier to receive more Lessons than usual,
and then you can play such powerful cards, such as the Draught of Living Death
card, which deals 12 damage, and the Obliviate card, which forces the
opponent to discard his hand.
of the cards are easily discarded, and there are cards that discard Lessons in
order to be played, I added many Healing cards, such as Burning Bitterroot Balm,
that would help retrieve cards that are essential to defeating the enemy.
One card being the Elixir of Life card, which recovers a whopping 16
non-healing cards from the discard pile. Not only that, but Severus Snape
makes a useful Character card, not only providing an extra Potions lesson, but
also allowing you to recover 7 non-healing cards once per game.
That is the disadvantage of this deck:
that the Healing Cards don't recover other Healing cards. So, in order to
avoid wasting your essential Healing cards, try to wait until you have discarded
more or equal to the amount to recover that is said in the card. That way,
you can be reassured you'll be in for another fight.
