|This card is missing an important
word - "witch". You can't use it as a starter. You can't
fetch it with Chocolate Frogs, either. You can get it with Gringott's
Vault Key, but the strategy of using a search card to acquire yet
another search card is truly foolish unless that second search card
can bring you the world at a pauper's price. But the Fat Lady is
one painting that isn't cheap art. You need two actions to play
her once she's in your hand, and yet another to use her ability.
What cards can she get? Presently, one lousy item (Invisibility
Cloak), a mighty fine bird (Hedwig), and 17 characters. All of these
cards are unique. Since there are two different Hermiones, two Rons,
and four Harrys, and each such variant is mutually exclusive, and
fetching a Fat Lady when you have another already out isn't sensible,
you're left with only 13 real card choices. These 13 cards don't
form themselves into any cohesive deck that I can see. I suppose
that with the printing of more Gryffindor cards, that the Fat Lady
may some day get her chance to sing. But I wouldn't bet on it.
|Well as of right now, I would say
that the Fat Lady has almost no point at all. Granted She might
be able to help you find the Weasley Twins if you're having trouble
pulling them in your character/adventure deck, but otherwise, what's
the point? There really isn't that many Gryffindor cards besides
character cards that could be of use. Yes you could use her to make
a character deck, but my best advice is to hold onto this card because
as more expansions come out, I think she might see an increase role
in the game, but right now, she's just ahead of her time.
|The Fat Lady is not PHAT, she is FLAT.
I mean she is a painting after all. Less than that, she is one of
those cards that may have some use in the future, but right now,
she's flat out worthless. Listen, I know I am being harsh, and it's
not because she got framed. It is because she only gets those cards
to your hand for 2 actions. If I wanted that kind of action, I would
have used Gringotts Vault Key or something of that nature. So please,
leave Her Oiliness for collecting. BTW, didn't Mr. Weasley warn
us about objects that can think for themselves? I mean where is
her brain anyway?
|Oh if the fat lady could only sing!
Well lets take a look here.... She gets you any Gryffindor card
for one action. For the most part this means some characters, Hedwig,
or the Invisibility Cloak. If you have a lot of characters and want
certain ones to get out, she might make a good boost to your Ron
Weasley deck. Of course, the Sorting Hat would work a lot better,
but a lot of Ron decks don't get up to 8. Chocolate Frogs anyone?
It would be cool if you were playing a theme deck or a house deck.
It would be even cooler if there were more house cards. But i don't
think this painting is ready for any competitive play. The coolest
combo i can think of is to use her to get Nick and use Nick to get
some items. Use the items to get other stuff and so on and so on.
It could be a really fun deck. But as i said, not a very competitive
one. Perhaps someday we'll see some killer Gryffindor card that
would make it worth her while.
|Honestly I had to look up what this
card did and when I did I found it to be more lacking then I had
originally thought. To begin with there aren't all that many Gryffindor
cards and even fewer of them are actually useful. Sure she can get
you a Invisibility Cloak, one of the Gryffindor characters or one
of the Harry Potters (once you have one the unique rule states no
one can have another card with Harry Potter in the name) but these
cards are generally useless. Someday hopefully in the near future
there will be a really good Gryffindor card but until then and maybe
even past then she is pointless and shouldn't be played unless you
have some obscure reason(s) which might include she looks pretty
and I always wanted a picture like that in my deck.
