Hey, Crusader. I was wondering if you could help me out with this deck:

 

Title: The Oldies Deck

 

Starting Character: Harry Potter

Ally: 1 Hermione Granger

 

Adventures:

2 Unusual Pets

1 In the Stands

 

Items:

1 Potion Ingredients

1 Magical Drafts and Potions

 

Creatures:

4 Vicious Wolf

1 Norbert

1 Mountain Troll

 

Spells:

3 Hagrid and the Stranger

4 Incarcifors

2 Take Root

2 Apparate

3 Steel Claw

3 Boil Cure

2 Pomfrey's-Pick-Me-Up

2 Noxious Poison

1 Hospital Wing

1 Draught of Living Death

 

Lessons:

11 COMC

6 Transfiguration

11 Potions

 

The objective of this deck is creature denial. Stop creatures in their tracks with In the Stands and Unuusal Pets. If they come into play, knock 'em out with Incarcifors and Take Root. Then slap your opponet around with your creatures. Use Steel Claw to double your creatures efforts, an Hagrid and the Stranger to get them back again. If you take damage, heal yourself with potions. This deck needs loads of work, so good luck!

Ok, hello Lisa! I see you put your short on cards in another email, so Iíll try to add mostly commons/uncommons.

 

Starting Character: Harry Potter

Ally: 1 Hermione Granger

 

Ok, Hermione isnít that good of a back-up. Lets switch these around. So your starter is Hermione and your ally is Harry.

 

Adventures:

2 Unusual Pets

1 In the Stands

 

Ok, nice choice of Adventures. Iím going to do a little fixing here. Pets and In the Stands are good, but itís a gamble. If your opponent has no Creatures, theyíre useless.

 

-1 In the Stands

+1 4 Privet Drive

 

I would normally add Through the Arch, but since youíre short on DA cards, I doubt you have it. If you ever get one, replace Privet with it!

 

Items:

1 Potion Ingredients

1 Magical Drafts and Potions

 

Ok, the items. Books are really cool, and can be a lesson provider/draw card. Potion Ingredients is good also, but I think it should be replaced with a Cauldron. So hereís the fix for items:

 

-1 Potions Ingredients

+1 Pewter Cauldron

 

Cauldron is a huge boost if you draw it, and since you have Hermione, one of them should be fine.

 

Creatures:

4 Vicious Wolf

1 Norbert

1 Mountain Troll

 

Ok, this area needs to be fixed up a bit. Norbert isnít really that good of a card. You have to discard two CoMC for it, and he becomes an instant target of removal cards. Vicious Wolf is a really good card, 3/3 for 6 CoMC, so itís going to stay. And, 8 lessons in a Potions deck is too much, so bye-bye Mountain Troll.

 

-1 Norbert

-1 Mountain Troll

+2 Cunning Fox

 

Cunning Fox is a 3/1 creature for 5 CoMC. You want to get your creatures out quickly and easily, then lay down your Potions spells. This makes it much easier to do that!

 

Spells:

3 Hagrid and the Stranger

4 Incarcifors

2 Take Root

2 Apparate

3 Steel Claw

3 Boil Cure

2 Pomfrey's-Pick-Me-Up

2 Noxious Poison

1 Hospital Wing

1 Draught of Living Death

 

Ok. Hereís the spot that really needs fixing up. Iím hoping to be able to add some creatures here in place of SpellsÖ

 

Draught of Living Death is WAY to expensive for this deck. A possibility may be Remembrall, but thatís too risky. Also, Pomfreyís Pick Me Up isnít that good, same with Boil Cure. Iím going to replace them with 4 Bruisewort Balm and 1 Cunning Fox. Also, weíre going to take out Hagrid and the Stranger and Apparate. So that frees up 5 places. Weíre going to replace them with 3 Cobra Lily and 2 Boa Constrictor. Both of these are little creatures, that combined, can do some damage! So hereís the fix in this area:

 

-1 Draught of Living Death

-3 Boil Cure

-2 Pomfreyís Pick-Me-Up

-3 Hagrid and the Stranger

-2 Apparate

 

+1 Cunning Fox

+4 Bruisewort Balm

+3 Cobra Lily

+2 Boa Constrictor

 

And now weíre on Lessons.

 

Lessons:

11 COMC

6 Transfiguration

11 Potions

 

Well, we need to balance this out a bit. The Potions is going to remain the same, since you need to discard for them, but the Trans and CoMC are going to be changed.

 

-2 Care of Magical Creatures

+2 Transfiguration

 

And, there are 63 cards in this deck, Iíll cut down on two:

-1 Incarcifors

-1 Noxious Potion

So hereís are finished deck:

 

//Characters

Hermione Granger (Starter)

1x Harry Potter

 

//Lessons

9x Care of Magical Creatures

8x Transfiguration

11x Potions

 

//Items

1x Pewter Cauldron

1x Magical Drafts and Potions

 

//Adventures

1x 4 Privet Drive

1x In the Stands

1x Unusual Pets

 

//Creatures

4x Vicious Wolf

3x Cobra Lily

2x Boa Constrictor

3x Cunning Fox

 

//Spells

4x Bruisewort Balm

3x Steelclaw

1x Hospital Wing

3x Incarcifors

2x Take Root

1x Noxious Potion

 

Have fun!
