If you are frustrated with privet drive, create an all creature deck with
an extra helping of Care of magical creatures lessons. Privet drive does
not affect you putting out creatures. Use hermione as your starting
character to fling out lessons as fast as you can sacrifice them. Use
tough health creatures to keep people from killing all of them too
quickly. And throw in some privet drives of your own (if you got em) to
protect your creatures.
Hermiones ability allows you to put out vicious wolves by the 3rd
turn. if someone is wasting a turn to privet drive you, there is no way
that they can kill all of your creatures as fast as you can play them.
This is the cheapest deck in the game. (go ahead build it for
a good creature deck is unbeatable.
