This card is a poor man's Incarcifors. I wouldn't want to use it early, despite the cheap price, as it speeds your opponent's development. Late in the game, giving your opponent another lesson often isn't that big of a deal, so this card makes more sense at that time. Of course, then you probably have enough lessons of your own to cast Incarcifors instead. In case you're wondering, no, you can't play this card if your opponent has no lesson in their discard pile. I suppose you could use this to croak your own unique creature, if you had another in hand that you wanted to play. That manuever is best done with Hedwig. It's clever, but not altogether effective. This card isn't as awful as the others, but it also isn't good enough to see much play. To sum up the week, don't play such low power spells. Even if you're living in a heavy lesson-destruction environment, these cards won't save you as they aren't strong enough in their effect to turn the tide in your favor.

Well, here is the kicker on this card. If they do not have a lesson in their discard pile, you can't use it. So this will be nice for those later in the game bigger creatures, but bad for early starting ones. Now, there is one exception here. I like this card for one reason alone. It is one way to rid your own Hedwig, gain a lesson, and be able to play the other Hedwig from your hand. This may be a play that many have forgotten about, but it works nicely. Otherwise it is a card to rid your opponent of Fluffy or Hebridean Black Dragon, but wouldn't you rather just use Incarcifors by that time?

Now we all know that Neville doesn't like this spell, Petrificus Totalus, but what will your opponent feel about it. Now you can play this spell on yourself or on your opponent, so that makes it somewhat versatile, but I don't know why you would want to play it on yourself. But I can see why you might want to play it on your opponent. In a way, its just another way to rid yourself of your opponents creatures and its very cheap. If you find yourself always trying to get rid of creatures, then this might be a cheap alternative to incarcifors, just beware, you're going to be increasing your opponents available power, which could mean bigger and badder creatures are on the way, so beware.

A very cheap Targetting Kreature Killer. But you give your opponent a lesson. If you play this card early, it might help your opponent a lot, but if you only use this once or twice, it might be useable. You could also go for Raven to Writing Desk. This card is pretty nice also. Most times, your opponent will have more than one creature they want to play and if you keep hitting the big boys and letting the Quintapeds nibble on your toes, That could get annoying real fast. Now.... if you are running lesson denial.... and keep picking on one lesson type... say for instance Care of Magical Creatures.... Then when you play Petrificus Totalus (did i spell that right?) put their other lesson in play.... then it might not be too bad. Over all though i suggest looking for better Kreature Killers that don't give your opponent an edge. If you are looking for cheap ones, we got several at five for Transfiguration and Charms has lots of creature killers between three and five.

Rating: 1.8


Great late game card! I love to make decks that maxes out at 5 and that doesn't leave me much choice on creature removals. It is to use when you feel your opponent has enough lessons to easily finish the game. Before that, another 1 Trans power card is Raven To Writing Desk! How often to critters walk around alone? Not often! and that's why I think you should use those two cards. Take Root is just week next to those two.
