Ron the Brave is obviously meant for decks that have a lot of adventures and characters. The problem here is that both types of cards require two actions to get out, and both types of cards frequently have playing restrictions. For adventures, the big hangup is you can only have one active at a time. For characters, the main problem is the rule on unique cards. If you add Fred & George to your deck, you can cut the cost of getting those adventures on the table. But you can't presently do that with characters, as the card that makes them half price is Ron Weasley, from the base set, which you can't simultaneously play with Ron the Brave. So any deck with RTB in it is bound to be a little ponderous. Since other avenues of deck design look more promising, I'd avoid spending too much time on trying to develop a workable deck using Ron the Not-so-good.

Too bad if you have this in play, you can't have Ron Weasley from the base set. Why? Well, he would fit right in the lessonless decks! Get him and Fred out, and you search your deck for all of the cards you need! But, if you use The Leaky Cauldron with this, all I can say is have fun ;) ;D

Ron in his second incarnation is not quite as good as the first one but not all that bad all the same he along with Harry Triumphant combo well with Fred & George Weasley. While it doesn't take an action to lay the character you search for you will have to use two actions unless you are playing the Leaky Cauldron. Even then his use is limited it would be much better but if you could have the original Ron out but the darn unique rule won't allow it. The braver Ron is ok if you need certain character and an easy way to get adventures out but otherwise don't play him as a starter and think hard before playing him as a backup character.

Rating: 1.7


Ron Weasly's second card and I don't think this card offers very much for you. Granted, he could possible be a good backup for Fred and George, but most people are not going to be playing that many adventures and characters so that this would come in useful. Yes he might let you get that Pomfrey you need to heal but at what cost. I wouldn't advise using this character, stick w/ the old Ron, he has a some tricky decks that could easily frighten your opponent.

Rating: 1.5


To be Frank, ok…Ron, you have to expose your combo early. You have to show your opponent your character that you are combo-ing with that adventure. This kind of makes things obvious for your opponent to know how to handle the situation. Now if you are holding the right character you can go get a decoy character and trick your opponent. But let's face it, HP TCG is too fast a game to hope for these conditions. Ron the Brave might be good in conjunction with Fred & George and the Leaky Cauldron, but this is not a convention. We are not going to draw all those cards that easily. So forget the Brave for now and hope for a better use in the future.



Ron the brave kinda made me sad when i saw him. He could combo well with Fred and George Weasley though. Start out with this guy and play an adventure to get Fred and George. Play Fred and George and then next turn you can start laying out characters and adventures like a madman. Play with some potions and go for Leaky Cauldron. Let's talk about crazy!!! That deck would be Crazy!!!!! And if Snuffles likes one thing most, he loooooooooooooovvvvveeeessss crazy. Once again this is a character that i would not completely cut out of competitive decks, but the ones you see him in will be very few and in between. they will also take forever to fine tune. I love decks like this, but I also like to win sometimes :)
