Hi there Snuffles

Here is another deck idea from Holland (like the Bludger/muddy practice idea from my fellow countryman). This deck I send you already works pretty decent. The reason I sent it is because I wanted to show off the idea. I believe it is somewhat different than most of the decks ideas you get. Well, here it is;

 

Gringotts Mounting Wealth

 

Starting Character;

Prof. Minerva McGonagall

Lessons;

Potion 11x

Charms 10x

Items;

Colour-Changing Ink 2x

Moonseed Poison 4x

Hagridís Umbrella 1x

Spells;

Bruisewort Balm 3x

Snuffling Potion 2x

Jawbind Potion 3x

Diffindo 2x

Switching Spell 2x

Picking On Neville 3x

Transfiguration Test 2x

Bewitched Snowballs 4x

Blue Wig 4x

Gringotts Vault Key 1x

Locations;

Gringotts 2x

Adventures;

Midnight Duel 2x

Letters from No One 2x

 

Ok, here is WHY;

Minerva isnít to exiting a choice, but what can you do. The deck is sort of centered around Gringotts, though it doesnít depend on it. Bewitched Snowballs and Blue Wig make sure I donít have to waste any of the 3 actions I get to drawing. Jawbind Potion and Letters from No One try to force my opponent to do so. The main damage I do is done by Moonseed Poison, that is why I put in four of those complemented by the Switching Spells. The Switching Spell can also be used to get Colour-Changing Ink early in the game. This item is really useful in this one because of the extra draws (making my hand fill nicely) and the great possibility I get stuck with unplayable Moonseed/Diffindo early in the game or useless lesson card in late game. Snuffling Potion is a real annoyance when my opponent hasn't got any useful cards in his hand (or canít play them because of Jawbind) and has to lose one card at the start of his turn and canít use any of the remaining 3 actions and just has to give the turn back to me. I use Bruisewort Balm to cycle my Moonseed usually or the transfiguration control cards, I donít want to sacrifice a lesson for a bigger healer because I need them too much, or I can use them with the Ink to get more cards when I use it. Midnight Duel finally is there because I LOVE IT! And it works like this; if my opponent is able to play say 2 spells and a creature he/she also loses 3 cards! Itís almost impossible to solve and makes Snuffling Potion more effective or makes sure my opponent wastes action drawing cards, while I drop BOMBS!

Ok, thatís it at long last. I hope you can see the idea here, I know it isnít a big winner but itís a lot of fun to play with! Maybe you can make some adjustments so itís not just fun but BALLBREAKING also. Thanx and greeting from sunny Holland, Banquo.

By the way, I will not be using this deck on apprentice and cards are not really a problem. I can usually get what I need.

P.S. I wrote this before the CoS set came out. So maybe there are a few good additions from that one.

Wow!!!I ended up changing this deck a lot!But I think you will be pleased in the end.The deck flows more smoothly now and I think the theme of what you were trying to do is better now.I ended up taking out the Potions.Moonseed just didn't seem to work for you.I ended up putting quite a few cards from new set into this deck including a couple fun adventures and the passwords.As you still needed that healing, I couldn't think of anything better than a couple Madam Pomfrey.I also added some wands so you can get going quicker.I think critters are going to be your biggest threat.So if they are heavily played in your area, substitute Out of the Woods for Purple Firecrackers.You do seem to draw a bit more with this version, but I think it works better.Anywho, here we go!

Starting Character:She works well for you!

 

Items:Well as Gringotts helps your deck, but it is not essential, we will just stick with the good ol' fashioned Borrowed Wand.The 3-5 jump is great in this deck and everything happens to cost 6 or less so you only need 3 lessons in play until you are ready to play Midnight Duel.Colour Changing Ink does work great in this deck, but I simply could not find the room for it.And as I said beforeÖno more potions, so no more Moonseed Potion.

 

Potions:Your main two spells here were Jawbind Potion and Snuffling Potion.However, I think you can hurt your opponent a lot worse with simple hand denial combined with your adventures.

 

Transfiguration:Well not nearly as many items now, so no more Switching Spell, and Diffindo is good, but Caught! is better for this deck.Usually they don't have 4 cards to discard, so it's practically Diffindo, but cheaper.Also, I found Mice to Snuffboxes much more effective than your Transfiguration Test.

 

Charms:Ok, here is where we have a little fun!I threw in End of Year Feast so you can get your adventures back and I threw in some passwords!These things are cool!Cheaper than Moonseed and they usually do 8 damage.Plus they are just plain fun to play!

 

Adventures:Add a couple Escaping the Dursleys to really infuriate your opponent.I usually don't recommend this many adventures for a deck, but they are vital to the theme.

 

Locations:I was really surprised, but this works for you!

 

Lessons:As I discussed, I cut the potions.†††††

Sorry that I changed this deck so much.I really liked the concept you had and I tried to make it as effective as I could.I wanted to include a lot of the cards you had earlier, but there simply wasn't room for it all.I usually try to stay as close to the persons deck as I can, but I believe this version will work much better for you.

Well I hope that helps!

Let me know how it fares!

Take care and have fun!
