Marcus Flint - Quidditch Cup

Marcus Flint
Card Type: Character - Wizard Slytherin Unique
Ability: Once per game, you may make your opponent choose 3 cards in his or her hand and discard them. (If there are fewer than 3 cards in your opponent's hand, he or she discards them all.)
Card No: 14

Average Rating: 1.75 (based on 4 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


Marcus Flint, in certain spots, can be a good card. But, he is usually not worth it. There are cards like Inelligbulus and Charms Exam that are more effective, and much cheaper. Flint requires two actions, unless, you unwisely use him as a starter. He provides no lessons, and only a Once-Per-Game ability. If your opponent has 7 cards in his hand, they have a good choice of selection. If they have 3, well, you're lucky.

You could use Flint to stall your opponent from solving Privet for a few more turns, or just stall him at the end of the game. But, I would advise not using him at all.

Rating: 2


This card has a nice ability! Let's say you just got out Fluffy and they had two or three card in their hand, it would be great to use Flint's ability to make them lose those without using an action. But he is definitely not a starter and more than likely you'll have another card to do some protection. So he is really not that good a character all around.

Rating: 1


He's a Wizard so he "could" be your starter, but that should rarly ever happen. (Like only if this guy was your only wizard/witch that you own.. in that case, trade him off for a better starter.) His ability is to Confundus as Draco Malfoy's ability is to Illegibus, except you can only use this guys ability once per game. If you play a discard deck and you have extra room and one of these guys lying around, it might not hurt to try him out. Otherwise, sell it to a collector and count your blessings.

Rating: 2


Definitely a back up character, Marcus Flint is another fairly underused card. The problem with him is timing. But if you could catch your opponent when he or she only had 3 or 4 cards in hand, he could be brutal. The problem of course being that he can only be used once. And for most decks, he requires two actions. I'd rather see Gringott's Cart Ride, Confundus, or Obliviate if you're going for the discarding cards effect. Might not be a bad card in a heavy Ron/Leaky Cauldron Deck, but often there are better options for back up characters.
