Scabbers is a decent creature, which while being the same cost as a Boa constrictor, deals only one damage. However, he is harder to kill and always comes back to your hand if your opponent kills him. (Assuming they can only kill him on their turn). While this ability is useful, it may not be enough to compensate for the fact that he only deals 1 damage.
In addition, the fact that he is unique further reduces his worth, since you can only play a couple in your deck, or else you might draw several at a time, which would be useless.

Rating: 2.5


Scabbers is a cool card. The ability to not be discarded by your opponent rocks. The 1 damage isn't much though, but if you can get 2-3 of them out, they can do some damage. Since he has 3 health, Toe Biter can't kill him, but mostly any other spell will. This card fits into any weenie deck.
Not being able to be discarded will be annoying for your opponent, and any spell he uses on Scabbers is mostly a 1 turn card.

Rating: 3


Scabbers is another unique creature with a special feature. You can't kill him. And I thought cats were great with their nine lives. If your opponent is foolish enough to do it, he could be killed every turn and then returned to your hand to play again.

Of course, most opponents will just ignore him, and there are much bigger and better creature for his cost(4f).

This is a speed creature deck card if there ever was one. It says 'discarded from play.' This means, who wants to rid your played cards of a single card that you will be playing again on your next turn when it only dose one-damage? No one, that's who. It is a nuisance card that speed creature decks should enjoying playing. You will one-them to death or at least give them slow pain. It is Unique, and you get to keep putting it back into play, so don't bother stocking more than one of these in your deck if you choose to use it.

Oooo.. Scabbers.. Ain't he cute? Yes, yes he is, but cuteness doesn't win games. He has a nice ability, good health, but poor damage per turn. Playing with Into the Forbidden Forest might help increase the damage, and if the new Diagon Alley has any new cards to increase creature damage, that could help too. But then there's the Uniqueness that we've been dealing with this week. Usually, once he's in play, he's gona stay in play for a while because most people don't wana waste their creature removal cards on something puny like him unless they really got a strategy. With that in mind, since he's unique you probably won't play more than one or two in your deck.

Scabbers.... hmmmm.... well, being a magic player, I love playing with Squee, Goblin Naboo (who has a similar effect).... but in magic, there are lots of more fun ways to discard cards from your hand/play and Scabbers only works if he hits the big old dead pile from play. At best, I would say Scabbers is annoying. When there are cards like Halloween Feast running around, and lots of better creatures, add into that that Scabbers is Unique and you can only have one out.... well... let's just say that Scabbers would be usefull in an extremely small number of decks.
