At first glance, you might think that five damage for a spell costing just three lessons is a great deal. Quidditch spellcasters like myself are used to great deals, however. Have we become jaded? Perhaps. For only two more lessons, I can play Ouch for the same five damage *and* make my opponent discard a card from their hand. With a Nimbus 2000 out, my Ouch gets me an additional two more damage. You can't get that with Biased Commentary. Yep. Winning has spoiled me. I have come to expect more than this from my Quidditch spells.

In Quidditch Decks, this card is good. Get Fouled! up to 9 damage, and they still only have 1 action :) With Nimbus 2000, Fouled! does 11 damage and limits their actions. Get 2-3 of these out a game, and you can solve Matches quicker, and deplete there deck MUCH faster. =o

This card is ok. There are just to many stand alone Quidditch spells that can do so much more than this one can and that makes it weak and less useful than it used to be even it’s low casting cost won’t help to much because high powered cards are easy to lay with wands and other lesson boosters all over.

Lee Jordan's biased commentry has got us hooked on it. Letting us do an additional 5 damage on each spell card which does damage is sweet. If you've read my Angelina Johnson's review then you'll know what I mean ;) And just needing 3 power its a worthy investment. We really reccomend any1 going for a final major blow in quidditch decks to use this card.

Rating: 4.5


This card is basically an ouch without the hand discard, the only catch is that it needs to be played with another quidditch lesson. Well if you're going to be playing quidditch, then that shouldn't be too hard. This card will adds extra punch and do quick damage, and combined with the heavy hitters, its quite frustrating. Its definitely fun, use it now!

Biased Commentary was definatly never meant to be a solo card. This guy can be played quickly, but it's says like, "I'll do 5 damage if you promise to make another one of my pals do damage too." It's like how girls have to go to the restroom in packs, this card needs a buddy to work as well. So in a pure Quiddich heavy damage deck, if you've got early spells that can damage, this card does well. But when you start getting up in the higher casting cost spells, better options arise, but that doesn't nessisarily make this card "bad" either.

OK.... 9 times out of 10 i see the decks with 4 Biased Comentary, but no Ouch! in them. For Heaven's Sake!!! Ouch does 5 damage just like Biased Comentary does. Save yourself some hassle and make your comentaries into Ouches. However, if you have 4 Ouches already and a lot of other fast damage, Biased is your next step. Just make sure you have your basic damage covered before you go sticking these in. It makes the next Quid spell you do this turn do 5 more damage. It's pretty cheap and can come in handy. However, most of the time i would side these out for something else.
