|This card is a nice answer to the
item heavy Draco Slytherin decks that have been popping up all over
the place lately. But how good is it against most decks? I've seen
many decks that contain no items at all, turning this card into
dead weight in your hand. However, most good players will be using
items to increase the rate of learning. I like cards that tend to
be more effective against strong players, as they are less likely
to do themself in with playing errors. It's too bad that Table Trouble
also destroys your own items, meaning you will have to find alternative
methods to speed your development, such as Wand Shop. The worth
of this card is highly dependent on the comparative strength of
items in relation to other types of cards. For the time being, items
are still more of a sideshow than the main event, even with the
big boost given them in Diagon Alley. This card has serious upside
potential, but it just doesn't seem quite "there" yet.
I prefer a card like Lost Notes to this in most cases. This card's
best fit is in a "silver bullet" type of deck. That is,
a design that includes many single copies of narrow but powerful
cards, and a number of other cards to search them out for use (Gringott's
Vault Key, Hedwig) when needed.
|Table trouble is an interesting card.
It really hurts Draco, Slytherin decks, but can hurt you, too. You
could end up discarding more items then your opponent! And if you
discard something like Pewter Cauldron, you've lost one Potion lesson
for nothing! Lost Notes, Picking on Neville and Diffindo are better
choices then this, but if you run a low-lesson critter deck, this
card could be a good choice. But, your opponent may not be using
items, so beware ;)
|Who's coming to dinner? Draco Malfoy,
Slytherin? Bah! I got his card right here! If you can think of Smash
or Squiggle Quill cards on steroids, you have Table Trouble. It
is only a 5-power card to rid all items in play. Sure it will take
yours too, but that is why you designed your deck not to be dependent
on items to begin with, right? Why take away one Wand with Lost
Notes when you can take his 2 Cauldrons along for the ride to the
discard pile too? Here is how I look at it, if you build a small
power deck, throw a couple of them in there, and see what happens.
|Alright once again its cleaning week,
I was so dumbfounded to hear this that I didn't fully concentrate
on my hair, and thus I'm stuck in a bad hair day. Lucky for all
you cause now you have to deal w/ an angry Internationally Famous
Wizard, which isn't a good thing. So onto to Table Trouble and let
me just say this card could be good, It has the same casting as
Lost Notes, except that you get rid of all your opponents items,
the only problem is you get rid of your items too. Well there's
a big duh, I mean I don't know very many people who don't play with
some items, so why would you want to get rid of all the items. I
suppose if you build an itemless deck and you're going up against
a Draco Slytherin deck, this card would totally rock, but how many
times is that going to happen? Are you willing to take that chance.
So let me reitterate, this card could be good, but its not, thank
you for playing, please drive through.
|Nowadays table trouble might not be
a bad choice even if you are playing with a couple items in your
deck. it seems like everyone is playing with an item or two of some
sort in their deck and then of course there are those crazy draco
slytherin decks. table trouble can hit real hard especially if your
opponent is counting on them. i think the trick with this card as
is with many others is the matter of timing. you might be wanting
to play it if your opponent has an item or two out, but it might
be better to wait. its always hard to tell. and if nothing else
folx, it costs the same as lost notes, so if youre not playing with
items, you could definitely make worse choices for your deck.
|As always, a card that affects a particular
type of card isn't as useable as it looks. Since it doesn't affect
a particular type of learning, it becomes sometimes pretty handy.
When used against a deck based on DRACO MALFOY, SLYTHERIN, it becomes
very useful. I can't leave out a fact that occurs in every ccg heavely
played; usually, when a very strong deck comes out in an area, two
things happen: the deck is copied or coutered. This card is counter
deck material! 1 or 2 can still be used in any kind of deck to get
rid of those lesson enhancing spell. The best times to use that
card is when you go for a WAND SHOP deck and don't use any ITEMS
or a QUIDDITCH deck, providing you don't use BLUDGERS or have a
replacement BROOM(if u play them)
