If you've ever lost a game because your opponent put down an adventure that completely hosed you, then you should appreciate the value of Argus Filch. Adventures in the HP card game are powerful and strongly game altering. To have some sort of protection against them is usually a good idea. In many cases, McGonagall fills this duty. However, there are times when people want variety, and wish to play with some starter other than the best one. That's the time that Filch can step into that protective role. My main problem with him is that he's not a wizard. I wouldn't want him as a starter, but it would have been nice if we were able to have fetched him with a Chocolate Frogs.Given that his ability is purely defensive, and not applicable against all decks, it would be unwise to place more than one in any deck design you make.

The man, the myth, the Legend, Argus Filch has been sent to us as a god send. Now I know what you're thinking everyone doesn't play adventures oh well well, where have you been. Almost everyone is running adventures these days and some are even running characters too, to devastating effects. So with all those Adventures floating around out there what can you do? Filch is the man for the job. I'd consider putting two of these into your deck just in case you need to be able to solve adventures, You can solve any adventure for one action even Through the Arch, thats a major bonus. Granted Filch couldn't be used as a starter and granted your opponent might not be playing adventures, but in this day and age are you really willing to take the chance

Rating: 4.2


Argus Filch, the caretaker of the castle, is nosey sneaky and untrustworthy. That is why I think he is one staff member that's nice to have in your deck. Keep in mind your only need one. There are a couple adventures that he won't work against, but he sure helps you cut your losses. Filch has got his hands in a rope bind when it comes to Letters From No One and all the adventures that do something before a players turn will still have to take that effect the first turn out. Fred and George and not happy with him for taking away their adventures and their map. But if you had to get on Fred and George's bad side, you'll be glad Filch is playing in you deck.

Rating: 4


Argus Filch is cool and lives up to his annoying nature in the card game.
One action for any adventure except for Letters From No One and that bad boy
is gone. Poor Fred and George don't stand a chance. Adventures are
becoming a little more common nowadays as not everyone is playing with
McGonagall. This is another of those risk cards in that he only works
against adventures. However, i do not think it would be a waste to have him
in your deck. If you fall upon a heavy adventure deck you just might find
yourself wishing you had put him in there.

Rating: 3.5



This guy is a real downer. He is always raining on Fred and George's parade and not only in the books. I really wish this guy hadn't been made this good. Fred and George adventure decks weren't that shabby in the days of Diagon Alley with only the all powerful Professor McGonagall that could stop the likes of 4 Privet Drive and Through The Arch now he almost brings adventure decks to a halt. He would have been much more balanced if it took two actions to discard an adventure or one action and some damage. While he would never be a good starter besides the fact that he can't be one he is a very good secondary character with the ever growing presence of character decks that utilize adventures this guy can help grind them to a halt or if you play all spells and you are getting tired of Through the Arch and 4 Privet Drive bringing you down this is the goto guy. This guy is really good and maybe IMO a little to good. Good thing he can't be a starter.
