The final part of the Beetle Eye/Eel Eye/Bulgeye combo, this one is the heavy hitter. It takes a long time to get up to the 13 lessons to cast this card outside of the combo. But don't give up on that idea, as a Draco deck with Books, Wands, and Cauldrons can develop very quickly. Cage and Brooms can also help out, if you want to dive into other colors. Other item cards to consider in filling out such a deck are Silver Unicorn Horn, Remembrall, Potions Ingredients, Put-Outer, The Sorting Hat, and Porcupine Robe.

Bulgeye Potion, imo, is the best damage spell/item in the game. You don't need to discard any lessons, and nowadays, 10 Lessons isn't that hard to get to. 13 damage for 2 actions is awesome, and in a Draco, Slytherin deck, you would still have an action left! You can also summon this card with Eel Eyes and Beetle Eyes, which would allow you to get a quick Bulgeye out! Put Cauldron Shop in a deck like this, and you have Eyeballs galore!

At 10 power it is not bad for potions, at 5 power and an extra couple of turns it is not bad for the EyeBall combo, but either way not costing you a lesson it is king in the potion world. If you figure you lose 2 potions at 8 power with Draught of Living Death for 12 damage, I think you could call this even and not lose lessons. Sure it will take and extra action, but what were you building a deck without Draco Malfoy, Slytherin for to begin with. ;o)

Hey guys. Seems like I've been busy this week, but I'm back to review the the card which makes the other two cards worth playing. =)
Face it, Item decks own you. DracoSly gets you an extra action per turn if you play an item. You can play Eel Eyes first turn to see your opponent's hand right off and still have as much power on the board at the end of the turn. (Potions, EE, Potions) Once you got two power, you can play the Potions Book items to get an extra action AND some more power. A Self-Stiring Cauldron along the way boosts your actions and power. By no time, you should be able to either play Bulgeye from your hand or search for it with Beetles and Eels. The new Cauldron Shop location helps you find the items you need and if you've got 4 of these babies in your deck, that's 52 damage possible from the Bulgeyes alone. This is game winning material, and definatly worth trying in most potions decks.

Oh, bulgeye, oh bulgeye, you are so mean when I get to play you, I feel so keen thirteen is an unlucky number, I am afraid to say because now that I've sacked it, it's coming your way look out, look out, oh ye people without the potion compunction cuz if yer not on the train, yer gonna be left at the junction Eel eyes, Beetle eyes, and Bulgeye make a great team I will make them bubble and boil and simmer and steam so beware of the bulgeye, for if you dont have a care I will play it and sac it and kill you, so there!

THE current heavy weight champion damage card! Although it costs 10 potions lesson about the same price as out of control. It does double the damage, but you'll half to use an approximate of 2 actions to make it work. If combo along with Beatle Eyes and Eel Eyes comes out successful, then best include this. This owns but only in draco malfoy slytherin decks which run potions sadly.... O well This gets a
