When I'm playing a lesson denial deck, I dread seeing a Hermione opposite me. It turns out that she is one of the strongest starters that doesn't have a built-in lesson. Playing this card requires discipline, though. I've seen many kids get impatient and not wait to draw a second lesson before putting one down. Don't do this! Miss Granger is only worth using if you're getting down two lessons for one action. WOTC is certainly providing a lot of cards that combine well with her. In the newest set, we have Hagrid's House and Potions Dungeon to get back discarded lessons, that Hermione can put back into play efficiently. Start of Term Feast can also let you power up on lessons quickly. I especially like the idea of some of these cards being used in conjunction with repeated castings of Dumbledore's Watch. If you're playing with green, you could even add in Collapsible Cauldron to surprise your opponent with a very explosive recovery from the clear board. On a less spectacular note, you could try some more mundane accompaniment, like Alchemy. I'm not a fan of using her as an allied character, but she makes a great starter, due to the many cards in the game which have nice synergy with her.

After you have 2 lessons in play, two lessons for the price of one...:D That means, if you're REALLY lucky, you will have 6 lessons out after your second turn. And 10 after your third. Can you say speed? :O This card, combined with PCD/Obliviate decks, can get to the required lessons very quickly, but you have to know how to use her...;)

They haven't invented a spell she can't do and when it comes to starters she is among the best of the best. The ability to lay lessons faster and in turn laying the cards you want to lay faster is an ability much sought after. The only problem with this amazing witch is that you have to get the lessons in your hand to lay them so I would recommend playing a large amount of lessons when you use her. She best fits in decks that require anywhere from 7-12 lessons. When you play Hermione you have no real need to play wands because three lessons is much harder to get rid off then one Dragon Heart Wand. She is one of the best starters there is and when you combo her with Potions Dungeon or Hagrid's House it is scary to behold.

Hermoine is either highly worshipped or highly criticized. But the fact of the matter is, she's one of the most dangerous non lesson providing starters there is. Why might you ask? Because she gets power fast and quick and allows for you to speed your way to high power and beging pummeling your opponent. Yes you normally need to equip your deck w/ alot of lessons but in doing so, you set yourself for some hard hitting action. Now Hermoine might get a bum rap sometimes, but I really think that if you give her a chance in certain combo decks, she could really clean up.

You want the best; you got the best. They don't make a spell she can't do and no one makes your lessons grow faster. She is hands down one of the best starters in the game. Remembrall and Hermione can even act like a lesson healing combo, pulling 2 lessons from the discard pile at a time. She is the fastest creatures speed deck starter in the game still after 4 sets. She is top of the class for one reason; she studies her lessons.

The original Critter deck starter, Hermione is and always will be a valid starter in my oppinion. The only problem with Hermione is that in order to use her ability to your advantage you have to stack your deck with lessons. I suggest somewhere between 28-32. This may seem a bit much, but if you want to be sure to get those lessons fast and get them out fast, you need to have that many. I have seen decks with as many as 45 lessons in a Hermione deck. Now that is Scary!!!! Plus with the new locations: Hagrid's Hut and Potions Dungeon, you can play stuff that makes you lose lessons and play them again the next turn!!! How can you beat that? In a word, You can't! Er is that two words? Snuffy don know... Snuffy is a dog so he ain't got no fingers to count on.
