I always advise my students to take the Transfiguration Test before trying the Exam. You don't want to wait too long to wipe the board clean of critters, as this game already has many creatures that come out fast and hit hard. Even with considerable effort expended in "learning", there will be a critical and often fatal delay before this spell can be used, if this card is relied upon as the primary defense against creatures. On the other hand, if its role is more supplementary in that respect, then the Exam shows some promise. But in this case, you need to limit the number of copies of it in your deck to just one or two. I still prefer the Test, so you'd have to have a need for more than 4 cards that provide mass creature elimination to include it. That implies a local environment heavily slanted towards lots of small creatures, which is seldom the case.

Trans. Exam is really good if your opponent is using creatures...but if they're not, this just takes up room =/ And, you shouldn't use it if you use creatures...since you'll end up hurting yourself more then your opponent. This card is in most Potion Class Disaster/Obliviate decks, since of its denial ability. Since it only targets creatures, its pretty much useless in 1/2 of your games. I would recommend cards like Potions Exam instead ;)

Creature, Creature, please beware
Your extinction is growing near
I only need a power of ten
To put you all in the discard pen

I must admit, ten is tough achieve
But with careful planning, I shall deceive
The only risk that I really take
Is, can I get it out, before I break

I know that this, is the one card you fear
But so few use it or hold it dear
So breathe easy if you think it is safe
But keep an eye out my T-Exam wraith

Lets just hop right into the ultimate in creature devastation, Transfiguration Exam. Now that Minerva is a tricky gal, and she's more sneaky then you believe, so while your opponent is laying down all those creatures, hoping for glory, Minerva pops an Exam on them, and wham bam thank you m'am, its bye bye creatures. Now Transfig Exam costs 10T to play, a once high amount but easily obtainable. This card is great for creature removal, but there are a couple of things you need to watch out for. One your opponent might not be playing creatures, but are you willing to take the chance they aren't? Second, Transfiguration Test, costs half as much and gets rid of all but one of their creatures. Now that card in of itself is useful, and you could always use another card to get rid of their other creature. Now here's the tricky part. Most people don't play their bigger creatures until the middle of the game, once they have their power up. Do you let the little creatures stay out and wait for the Transfig Exam, or do you take the risk of using it, and then having your opponent play a dragon or Fluffy. All in all a tough choice, but I think this card is very useful, not as useful as Transfig Test, but still useful none the less.

Transfiguration Exam. in the eternal words of Cusco: "BOOM, BABY!" If you can get up to ten and your playing trans and your not playing a heavy creature deck, throw it in! the end!

Rating: 5


Transfiguration is a great support card vs creature but most decks that use transfiguration are quick deck that need a little support and 10 power is too much. Only the use of this card is necessary if u can learn quick enough. I prefer an alternative combo that uses double the action but half the cost: TRANSFIGURATION TEST/TAKE ROOT. You need 8 copies of creature removal instead of 4, more lessons like I said earlier but Helluvalot quicker.
