Pojo's Harry Potter Card of the Day

Beetle Eyes - Diagon Alley

Beetle Eyes
Power Needed: 5 Potions
Card Type: Item
Ability: When you play this card, do 4 damage to your opponent. You may use an action to discard this and Eel Eyes from play to search your deck. You may take a Bulgeye Potion card from your deck and put it into play. Then shuffle your deck.
Card No: 33
Rarity: Uncommon
Set: Diagon Alley
Average Rating: 3.583 (based on 4reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


As noted yesterday, this card is 1/3 of the Eel Eye/Beetle Eye/Bulgeye item combo. Nearly Headless Nick is good for fetching the combo, and Hannah Abbott and Christmas Feast are nice for reusing it. Hedwig and Tawny Owl can also recover elements of the combo. The good thing about Beetle Eyes is that it is reasonably effective on its own outside of the combo, providing 4 damage for a 5 lesson spell. Any deck that wins primarily through item damage needs to include this card, along with Moonseed Poison, Bulgeye, and possibly also Bludger.

Rating: 3


Ah, Beetle Eyes. You do 4 damage with this card, and if you have Eel Eyes out, 13 damage with Bulgeye! The ability to do 17 damage and look at your opponents hand is awesome. This card fits perfectly into a Draco, Slytherin deck, and I think every Draco deck has at least 3 of them. Some people say using 4 actions to get this combo done is too many, but since you don't discard any lessons, and Draco gives you one extra one, it is totally worth it!

Rating: 4


This is a winner whether you are playing Draco Malfoy, Slytherin and or the EyeBall combo or not. It does not cost a potion and it is a nice little punch at 5 Power. Many do not realize this, but there are now enough spells and items available to build potion free Prof. Severus Snape starting deck. So if you are looking to build something unique, that is not being played, I just gave you a hint.

Its all fun and games till someone loses an eye! poor beetle! What did he ever do to deserve that? poor poor beetle.... I feel sorry for him, really I do.... oh.... am I supposed to be talkin about the card? well.... beetle eyes is pretty much on the same line with eel eyes except that its betta cuz it does damage and its fun to psych out your opponent if your only playin with these and not the eel eyes cuz they might just lost notes it :) I tried makin a deck that returned my ites to my hand over and over, but it didnt really work, over all, this is a fairly decent card. In memory of the beetle, I give this card *drumroll please*

Well, its not bad of a card, 5 potions for 4 damage and you don't have to discard a potions lesson. But the thing is that this is an item card and it must go with Eel eyes and Bulgeye potion to work properly, and since there are many item discarding cards, I don't really recommend this card in most decks, but if you know how to use it then good luck.
