It takes an action to draw this card, another to play it, and two more to replay the two lessons that it bounced back into your hand. That's four actions to inflict 10 damage, which is not so hot. Now, if you don't need those two lessons back in play, you should be using Dragon's Blood, which discards them but gives you one more damage as your compensation. Obviously, this card was meant to be used with a Hermione starter. In that case, it is equivalent to casting a pair of five damage spells with no drawbacks. For potions spells, that is reasonably decent. Not spectacular, mind you. But decent.

Rating: 3


In Hermione decks, this is a VERY nice card. Do 10 damage to your opponent, and you can use your second action to put the lessons back in play! Get 2-3 of these out with the other Potions Heavy Hitters, and you've got a VERY quick win =)

Rating: 3.5


Similar to Malovent Mixture but I don’t like it as much as if I am returning lots of lessons to my hand or sacking lessons I like the low powered spells and I think 7 is just a tad to much power. Though it is very good with Hermione and a Wand.

Rating: 2


All these Potion discards work extremely well, if you have a means of replaying those potion lessons. Naturally Hermoine Granger works well for this, and if you can hit hard and hit fast then these decks can play well, however if someone starts denying you actions, spells to play, removing lessons, you're going to be stuck. So be careful making a totally offensive deck with the hard hitters cause your opponent could slow your attack and you'll be stuck with nothing to play so build the deck wisely.

Rating: 3


Mav. Mix. that costs more, but conserves lessons. Mav Mix has more speed for about the same effect, but you'll eventually run out of lessons for it. This way you could use Hermoine and replentish your lessons to keep Dragon Poisoning your opponent until you've played all you can play. :P Good stuff. =)

OK... what do you get if you take a Malevolent Mixture, make it two more in cost, but you don't discard the Lessons and they go to your hand instead????

Wow! that is the single most longest introduction to the worst joke i've ever heard! You guessed it.... Dragon's Poison. Something i have always liked about Malevolent Mixture is that it was so darned cheap. Sure, you lose the lessons, but in the decks i usually have it in, its the final strike. Of course, if you are playing a heavy hitting Hermione Potions Deck, this is ideal as she just plays those 2 lessons the next action and does it again!! I don't see myself playing with this card, but i definitely think it's viable.
