Card Type: Location - Slytherin Unique

Average Rating: 2.00 (based on 6 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


The first thing you need to notice about this card is that it itself is a Slytherin card, and thus deals your opponent one damage per turn on its own, without any other help. According to my count, there are only seven other Slytherin cards in the game, and three of them are named Draco. Only one of the remaining four, Slytherin Snake, is non-unique. What this means is that this location isn't going to be doing a lot of damage for you, even if you build your deck around it. Even worse, Professor Snape and Draco Slytherin are both very common starters, so you may frequently find yourself taking damage from your own location. The bottom line is that although this card is interesting, it doesn't make the "A" list.

In a character deck, this card could be okay. But, the only Slytherin cards that are commonly used are Draco and Snape, and that's only 2 damage per turn. There are better ways to do damage, and these aren't the way...;)

Rating: 2


Not very good there are some Slytherin cards but most of them are Characters and that in addition to the six power requiered to play this card makes any feasible deck very slow. It just really isn’t worth playing.

We successfully drank the pollyjuice potion and made it into the SCR. We need to get draco to spill about the attacks. We also do one damage to our opponent for each slytherin in play. They do the same thing to us. There aren't that many slytherin cards. The only character search cards for all characters are Ron the Brave and Chocolate Frogs and Entrancing Entrantments and other search cards. If you have a character deck, go with GCR and not SCR.

Great in a Slytherin House deck. The new Slytherin Serpent is like Cunning Fox, but counts as a Slytherin. Use Snape or Draco Sly for starter, and maybe even a Marcus Flint ally and/or Crabbe and Goyle. So far the most different Slytherin things you could have out is 9, but that could also be a good sign that your opponent won't be likely to use it against you for more damage than you'd do against him/her. If there were any more sets coming, there would probably be an addition to the Slytherin library, but since that doesn't look promising, it's as good as it can get right now.

Rating: 2.6


There just aren't enough Slytherin cards to make this effective in most cases. Sure, we got the Slytherin Snakes now, and some characters.... but a good Dogbreath Potion or Moonseed Poison is much more effective in most cases. Now if you could work it so that this thing was doing say.... 5 damage to your opponent each turn, it would be noteworthy. It's just too much of a stretch at the moment though.
