Pojo's Harry Potter Card of the Day

Bucking Broomstick - Adventures at Hogwarts

Bucking Broomstick
Power Needed: 7 Quidditch
Card Type: Spell
Effect: Do 3 damage to your opponent. Then, if your opponent has any cards in his or her hand, he or she chooses 2 of them and discards them (1 if he or she only has 1).
Card No: 54
Rarity: Common
Set: Adventures at Hogwarts
Average Rating: 3.49 (based on 4 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


The two cards that your opponent must discard are equivalent in actions to what it takes to draw and play the Bucking Broomstick. Plus you get to ding them for 3 damage more (5 if you have Nimbus 2000 out). That's pretty good for a 7 lesson spell. Hooch charm decks will probably prefer Titillando over this. Heavy quidditch decks might prefer waiting a little longer to get the four card discard from Out of Control. This is a decent card, but quidditch has so many similar cards that I question how much play it will get.

Rating: 3


Reaching 7 power has never been easier and Quidditch has never been tougher. this card RULZ! The Quid/Trans deck era has finally come into it's own. now your only choices are which way to go...more damage or more effects. Combine this with some Ouch! and some of those "discard before your turn" adventures and they are going to be scrambling for cards in their hand.

Rating: 4


Look out Harry, Snape is trying to kill you! If Snape heard me say that, I would be covered in warts before you could say, Award Winning Smile. Luckily Severus and I are good friends and he knows I'm joking. Uh-oh, he's giving me a nasty look I better get to the review, Right on then. Bucking Broomstick is a very interesting card. This card is an advance version of Ouch, and a less then stellar version of Titillando. I still like the effect it gets rid of two cards from your opponents hand. That 3 damage might not be huge, but its still damage and if your opponent has a smaller number of cards in their hand, this could make their decision of what to discard very tough. Once again I feel that this could find a good spot in a quidditch deck, with the right denial strategy.

Rating: 3.25


I really dig this card. Ouch! does two more damage for two less power but only hurts one card in hand. This fits in great for those nasty hand denying decks. Again, we find that Charms compliments Quidditch well here. Confundus, Purple Firecrackers, Ouch, and Bucking Broomstick all add up to serious hand denial for your opponent. Throw in some nasty adventures like Letters from No One or 5 points from Griffindor and your opponent will be begging for mercy. All in all though, this card does not have to go straight into a hand denial deck. It is a solid card, but does less damage than other Quidditch cards at this level. I dig it, just too bad you can't use Hooch to look for it heh.

Rating: 3.7
