Madam Rolanda Hooch - Quidditch Cup

Madam Rolanda Hooch
Card Type: Character -Witch/Unique
Ability: Once per game, you may search your deck. When you do, you may take a Broom card from your deck, show it to your opponent and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your deck.
Provides: 1 Quidditch
Card No: 13
Rarity: Rare/Holo
Set: Quidditch Cup
Average Rating: 4.59 (based on 5 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


Any starting character that provides you with an initial lesson is automatically good. The extra broom-fetch ability of Hooch isn't so hot, however. That's because the fetch of an item is equivalent to just one action, and if you accidentally draw a broom before you do the fetch, then you've more or less wasted her special ability. So unless you fear an opposing discard, you should do the fetch on your very first turn. Any deck that includes Hooch should figure out which single broom type works best for their deck (usually Nimbus 2000 or Comet 260) and put one copy of that broom in the deck. Do *not* use Hooch as an allied character. She's no good for that. But she can do a fine job as your

Hooch is an amazing starter. If you have Quidditch in your deck, she should be your starter. Since no Quidditch cards need Quidditch lessons to discard, you could add Charms with this, use Wand Shop, then have Mid-Air Collision and Out of Control take over. Hooch provides one Quidditch, so that makes her an ideal starter. Her ability is also very nice. Once per game, take a Quidditch Item from your deck to your hand. Many people have used this with Broomsticks, but Bludger would be another choice if you have your Broom in your hand already.

Madam Hooch really rocks my world
When she starts me off with Quidditch
Regardless of the other lessons I play
My spells will have found their niche

Hoochy says I must learn to fly
And get my feet off the sand
She gets me my broom on the first play
And puts that stick in my hand

Lots of bonuses can come from the game
When you play to win a Match
Rolanda will be there to back you up
When you make your first catch

Remember to keep this in mind
If you want to play Catch the Snitch
She is best as your starting character
When playing within the pitch

The spells that will be played
My opponents will really despise
With one last thing to mention
"Man, do I dig her eyes!"

Before we start with today's card i would just like to tell all my women admirers out to remember: yellow eyes aren't in style with me. Just so you know. Keep those pictures and letters coming ladies, and of course you'll be getting your signed photos of your lovable award winning smile writer within 7-10 business days. Now onto Madam Rolanda Hooch, as a lady she isn't very pretty at all, but then again when you're as good looking as me, you have very high standards. She is however an excellent starting character for HPTCG. Now there are two ways to look at starters, one is in the online world and another is the real world. On apprentice, mcgonagall is becoming well boring, no one plays w/ adventures any more so her special ability often gets wasted. Its much more advantageous to use Hooch since you can get a broom and use a lesson type with no discards. However in the real card playing world, Minerva is still Queen, but Hooch can still have its advantages if you use them well. She is definitely one of the top 5 starters in the game and depending how you build your deck around her, a solid choice as a starter.

If you're plannin on playin the only game on broomsticks, who better to have at your side Madam Hooch? If your deck depends on brooms, and you need to make some room, ditch Transfiguration class and accio your firebolt to steal the egg from that dragon. She's definitely a solid starting character with
a pretty nice ability. It's a bummer if your broom gets picked on, so put in at least two of whatever your preferred broom for the deck is. As always, the starting lesson is a plus, and who can argue with that yellow eyed stare?

Rating: 4.7



Hooch, one of the top 5 starters in my list. Quidditch is one of the 3 lesson types that doesn't require discarding and that makes her one of the best starters. While other teachers have requirements or need particular situations to use their ability; Hooch doesn't. At the end of the first turn she screams UP! and gets a broom into her hand, and on the next or 3rd turn she climbs on it and gets in the air. If you need a particular broom and have Hooch, one copy of it in your deck is enough to get it out... major card saving during deck building. It gets you an extra lesson directly in your hand (you can fairly deminish the lessons % in your deck) and the ability of each broom gotten out so quick can be life saving during any situation.

Just don't forget to use her during first turn so you don't lose an action by drawing a broom you could've gotten for free!
