I really like the idea of creatures that do damage as you play them. WOTC borrowed this concept from other games. I'm not as fond of the lesson discard aspect, however. It's natural to compare Fang to the Black Dragon, which has the same cost. Fang is a little tougher to kill. I've had people double-Streams my dragons before, and Fang shrugs off that kind of thing. If you expect your opponent might blast your creature right away, then Fang is better, as he gets in at least one bite all the time. But if that's the case, then why are you even bothering to play a lesson discard creature? A Mountain Troll is a better offering when your foe seems prepared to deal with your monsters. Fang and the Black Dragon are very comparable, although I prefer the latter ever so slightly. If you decide to include Fang in a deck, I strongly suggest only putting one in. That's because he's unique, and the second copy you draw will sit in your hand if the other one is already out. Some unique creatures (Hedwig) have special abilities that are so good that they compensate for this added risk and are still worth having multiple copies in your deck. In the case of Fang, he's not distinctive enough from the alternatives to warrant that.

Rating: 3


Fang is a fun creature and comes packed with 7 health. However, only dealing 4 damage and being UNIQUE, would make Mountain Troll a better choice. It is easier to put out more than Mountain Troll than to discard a COMC and come up with only one 4 damage creature to show for it. I feel it is great to finally get Fang in the HP TCG like his other counter parts like Norbert, Scabbers, Hedwig, and others. But he just isn't as strong as he should have been.

The loveable pet of Hagrid finally makes his entrance to the world of HPTCG, and I must say its not as great as one could hope. Yeah he does 4 damage when he enters the game, but he also costs you a CMC lesson, which the Mountain Troll does not. Now the troll at 4/4 is a gamer, and Fang at 4/7 can do some damage, but the Hebridean Black Dragon at 7/5, is the deadlier foe at the exact same cost as Fang. Now Fang gives you another hard hitting creature, but I would advise you to consider using other creatures like the Troll and Dragon, who can do either the same amout of damage or much more damage. I'm sure they'll hit harder, and you'll like the way they do battle.

Heh.. this is like a third of the three headed Fluffy. Interesting..
This is like a sort of "first strike" card. As soon as it comes into play, it takes a bite out of your opponent's deck. It does as much damage as Mountain Troll for as much power, but you need to discard a lesson to accomidate its bigger health and "first strike" power. ;') Not a bad deal, and even better with Hagrid's House. The bad part would be that you can only have 1 Fang in play.

Rating: 4


Who let the dog out?!?!? WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! Fang is one serious ouchy. For the same price as a mountain troll, you get 3 more health, and four damage right away. sure you lose a care of magical creatures lesson, but it's worth it for Fang. Heck, don't even worry about it and go with hagrid's house. Fang might be a coward, but i'd pick him for my team any day.
