Hi, Snuffles. I got a deck here that needs a lot of work, and I was wondering if you could help me out. Here is my deck, the Lesson Disaster.

 

Characters:

Draco Malfoy(starter)

Adventures:

1 Dragons Escape

1 Diagon Ally

Potions:

2 Noxious Poison

1 Promfrey's Pick-Me-Up

1 Foul Brew

2 Boil Cure

Care of Magical Creatures:

4 Hagrid and the Stranger

1 Trevor

1 Scotish Stag

1 Forest Troll

3 Surly Hound

4 Boa Constrictor

1 Delivery Owl

1 Pet Rat

1 Vicious Wolf

3 Curious Raven

Transfiguration:

3 Avifors

3 Epoximise

3 Cauldren to Sieve

Items:

1 Silver Cauldron

Lessons:

3 Potions

4 Transfiguration

12 COMC

The object of this deck is to play spells that remove your opponets lessons from play. If they have no lessons, they have no cards. Use the Creatures and spells to damage them as they try to find the lessons they need. Use Diagon Ally to slow them down, and use the Boil Cures and Promfy to heal yourself. It needs a lot of work, so good luck.

Heya Tyler!I am really digging on the theme of your deck.Killing your opponents hand while hurting their lessons and smacking them around with your creatures.I see a few problems with your deck right off the bat.First of all, you need more lessons. Secondly, you have a Silver Cauldron in here, but that is your highest power required card.So basically, what I am going to do is trim down your deck so that nothing costs more than five.And we are going to eliminate any card that requires you to lose a lesson.That way you can spend more of your actions making your opponent discard.You stated that you liked the healing in your deck.I noticed you didnít have too many Quidditch Cup cards in your deck, so I am going to limit those choices to commons and uncommons.

 

Characters:

Draco Malfoy(starter)

 

(He suits your deck well. No complaints here)

 

Adventures:

1 Dragons Escape (-1)

1 Diagon Ally(+2)

 

(Diagon Alley is a very strong card in this deck.This will limit your opponents drawing and playing power, giving you the full effect of your lesson denial and discarding.Which also means that if they donít draw the card they need, they simply have to pass their turn.And hopefully, this will happen a lot!)

 

Potions:

2 Noxious Poison(-2)

1 Promfrey's Pick-Me-Up (+2)

1 Foul Brew (-1)

2 Boil Cure (-2)

2 Bruitswort Balm (+2)

3 Jawbind Potion (+3)

 

(ok, we are adding pick me ups because they work great here.Heals a little and you draw a card which you will hopefully be able to play and if not, heckÖ. hurt their hand a little!Noxious is out because it eats lessons.Foul Brew is out simply because once you get to five, there will be better choices.I am putting in Jawbind Potion to further limit your opponents playing ability.This way, even if they draw the card they need, they might not be able to play it and it protects your creatures for a turn.Bruitswort balm is simply stronger than boil cure for not only one more power needed.If you don't have jawbind potion or bruitswort balm, trevor's and/or pet toads would go in nicely and boil cure is also an option)

 

Care of Magical Creatures:

4 Hagrid and the Stranger (-4)

1 Trevor(-1)

1 Scotish Stag (+3)

1 Forest Troll (-1)

3 Surly Hound (-3)

4 Boa Constrictor

1 Delivery Owl (-1)

1 Pet Rat(-1)

1 Vicious Wolf(-1)

3 Curious Raven (-3)

4 Cunning Fox (+4)

 

(OK, basically, you have four boas, four foxes, and four stags.I took out hagrid and the stranger simply because hopefully you will be able to protect your creatures with draco and jawbind potion.If you donít have the foxes, surly hound or curious raven would be good early hitters.)

 

Transfiguration:

3 Avifors

3 Epoximise(-1)

3 Caldron to Sieve (-3)

3 Lost Notes (+3)

2 Apparate (+2)

3 Take Root (+3)

 

(Let potions eat itself, I say J Transfiguration will be one of your biggest threats, but charms and care of magical creatures are the ones you will need to worry about the most.And we are adding lost notes so that no matter what they are playing, you can still hurt them.Adventures may be a problem for you due to the nature of this deck i.e. you are discarding cards so your hand size will be small and your actions are vital, thus a couple apparates does the body good.Take root is for the creatures you didnít quite catch as you are forcing them to discard.And remember, all of these cards are viable options for draco if you're opponent is not playing that particular type of card.)

 

Items:

1 Silver Cauldron (-1)

(Well I toyed around with the idea of charms and borrowed wand, but since all you will ever need is five, I don't really see the need.You might consider switching a couple of your care of magical creature lessons for cages if you find you have too many.Cages are great with draco and work just like a lesson if you're opponent is not playing creatures.)

 

Lessons:

3 Potions (+4)

4 Transfiguration (+4)

12 COMC (-3)

 

(ok, in a nutshell, you want to be sure you get your lessons because other wise you will be drawing and drawing just hoping itís a potions lesson or something else.Also, this is still more fodder for draco once you reach that vital five mark)

 

Basic Strategy:Hit early with draco, if you can catch a lesson or two before they play it and make them discard lessons from play, they will be hurtin big time.Make sure they donít have a creature killer before you play a creature.Otherwise, you have just wasted an action playing a creature they don't have to worry about.Keep in mind when forcing your opponent to discard, not only what is the best card, but what is the card that they can play next turn that will hurt you.I have given you a lot of firepower here for draco.That is, a lot of cards that may be better spent making your opponent discard.
