Presuming you need those lessons in play that get bounced back into your hand when this dragon comes out, you will need two more actions to play them. That means you are getting a 7/5 creature for three actions, once it's drawn. With Hermione out, you can deduct one action from these calculations. If you have no intention of replaying those lessons, then things look even grander, as you can deduct two actions from the computations. In that case, this is a fine value, although you might not like waiting until you have eight lessons in play before your dragon swoops in. Personally, I'd only play this in decks run by Miss Granger, as otherwise there are slightly better alternatives.

Rating: 3


Hebridian is much better then this. Even though Hebridian discards 1 CoMC, that's easier to recover from then having to use a turn to replace the 2 that are returned to your hand with this card. Also, the odds of this card not being killed first turn out is slim, so this card isn't really worth it...

Rating: 3


Same damage and health and casting cost as Hebridean Black Dragon the only difference is that instead of sacrificing a lesson you get to return two lessons to your hand. Personally I’d rather sacrifice the lesson than have to relay two lessons that is a whole turn. Other than that great power creature that will kill your opponent very quickly.

Norbert's breed of dragon. This baby just sprang out of heaven yes this is. Only 8 lessons to play this card equivalent to Mountain Troll, this baby does more damage and has more health. 7 damage and 5 health. But to every good thing there is a catch, you will have to return 2 of your CoMC cards back to your hand. Sounds good? Offcourse! Better in your hand than in your discard pile and it also removes the use of adding a Hagrid's House to your deck so it helps you save deck space. To play or not to play? Definitely. So the bottom line.

Pros: Big damage, Doesn't need to discard a CoMC lesson, just returns 2 to your hand.

Cons: With blistering pace in the game, reaching 8 lessons is kind of hard now.

This card is just like another dragon we know and love, the Hebridean dragon, the only difference is instead of discarding one lesson you return to your hand, this can either be good or bad. I'd say w/out Hagrid's House its good, however, you're now back down to 6 lessons so playing some bigger cards will probably take some time to lay down. With Hermoine Granger as your starter, then 2 to the hand is basically once since you get to play them back down. It all depends on your complimentary cards but the fact of the matter is this card is pretty nasty and it packs a bunch so by all means use it.

Rating: 3.8


It's like that other cool dragon that isn't unique either. The main difference, this dragon makes the lessons go back to your hand instead of the discard, which is better in the long run, right? Pretty good idea with Hermoine. And since it is NOT unique, you could very well get 4 of these bad boys in play at a time. Dragons never disappoint me. =)

Wow! they made another Hebridean!!! and this time, you don't lose one lesson, but return two to yer hand. If you like those big critters, this is definitely one to take a look at. 7 damage is just like... Wow man! Far out! and 5 health is just like super duper totally tubular. Ohhhhhhhhhh Yeahhhhhhhhh!!!!! Are you readdddddddddy to rummmmmmmmmmble!?!!?!? uhm... don mind me lol i'm typing with a head cold heh.... He's Big! He's Beefy! Just glad Hagrid didn't keep Norbert long enough for him to grow up, otherwise we'd have to forget about books 5, 6, 7, and 8 lol. Try him out with Hermione, it's Super Groovy!
