This is basically a marginally more expensive Pewter Cauldron that returns to your hand when discarded from play. Too bad that the lesson you had to discard when you cast this doesn't also come back. It's also unfortunate that the return effect does not happen if it is discarded from your hand. Despite these caveats, I think it's still a better card than the original Pewter. I've seen (and played) way too many lesson denial decks to be comfortable playing that cauldron from the base set. However, I do not feel this card is enough of an improvement for me to play with it much. If you are the sort who normally plays with Pewter Cauldrons, I recommend that you try this out instead. I suspect you'll be pleased with the change. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother trying to figure out how to work this into a deck design.

Rating: 2.5


While Potion Decks have not yet become all the rage, they are making attempts to increase the lure of Potion Decks. This card is one of those cards where they attempt it. Basically if you're playing a pewter cauldron or a collapsible cauldron, you're goal is probably to reach 8 power or higher, and both of these get you there. Granted Pewter gets played a lesson earlier, but you still need to play another lesson to catch up to the Collapsible Cauldron. But the best thing about this cauldron, is that if it is discarded from play it returns to your hand. Show me a wand or broom that has that ability. This card is one of those cards where it makes sense to play Potions, the other is Potions Dungeon, which screams of playing all sorts of damaging potions spells. But thats a tale for another time.

Well, we had Scabbers for CoMC, now this for Potions... what's next? ;') The thing with Scabbers was its ability only worked during your opponent's turn, but with this Collapsable Cauldron, even if you discard it during your turn, you get it back. Like say a Forbidden Coriddor was in play, you could return this to your hand to buy bide for time. If it didn't require you to discard a lesson, it would be pure brokenness, and ofcourse, we can't have that, now can we? ;')

Picking on Neville? Lost Notes? I mock in your general direction! Now come back so I can instegate you a second time! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! I really dig this card. A LOT! If the 5-7 jump is more important to you than the 6-8 jump, Pewter is still not a bad card. But if you don't need that 5-7 Jump, why skimp? Go for the Glory! Go for the Finish Line! Go for the bag o' chips!
