If you're playing with a card that requires 10 lessons to be able to cast
it, you're going to want to have that card put your opponent into a state of abject terror. This card isn't even mildly unsettling. In fact, anyone who doesn't use creatures will laugh in your face, and those who sport decks of lots and lots of small creatures will simply shrug their shoulders and whack you with their horde. This card might have been playable had it cost around 5 or 6 lessons to cast, but as it was made, it's not even good enough for me to deign putting it into a Draco Slytherin deck. I have this policy of trying to find the silver lining in even the darkest of clouds. So now that I've been nothing but critical, it's time for me to move on to the section of my review reserved for praising this card's good points. Right. Next!

Winged Keys is a interesting card. Prevent all damage from one creature, no ifs, ands or buts. The only thing is you need a creature in play to stop! And...this is 10T, not very cheap. Its the same price as Trans. Exam, and most people would prefer to play it. Since its an item though, it may be used in Draco, Slytherin decks for the action advantage...but Trans. Exam is better and more common. I would recommend finding something other then this to use...if your opponent isn't using creatures, its a dud. If you don't get to 10 lessons, its a dud. Trans. Test and Exam is much better.

Whether you like Trans Test or Trans Exam this is the complimenting card! I like the idea of having a Trans Test in my hand and holding on to it because the creature they do have out is locked up behind my of the Winged Keys card. So I can just wait until I need to use it to dispose of the extras. And with Trans Exam…Okay, well you get the idea. This is a great item because once it is out you only need to use it when you have too and it doesn't have to be discarded like the Cage. SO reuse and reuse. My favorite part of this card is the fact that it is the ultimate Steelclaw blocker!!! It lasts the entire turn, so unless they just put a creature out and depending on the number of actions they have, Steelclaw may only be able to do one creatures worth of damage on any given turn. I will say that 10 is a bit spendy, but hey, good stuff always is. It is because of the price, I rated this lower than I normally would.

I would just like to welcome our Loyal Card of the Day Readers to Inflation week. Prices are up, and the Weasley's are searching the cushions, but yours truly, a best selling author is accustomed to living the high life and isn't worry about monetary issues. Now onto our first card, Winged Keys. Cool pictures, nice scene in the movie, worthless card! I mean really what's the point. It costs 10T and it does what, prevents damage from one creature. Yeah if they had fluffy out and you couldn't get rid of it might come in handy, but why not play an incarcifors or a lapifors or any other denial card to get rid of it, why play this item card, it would baffle me to all ends for someone to use this as defense. Its just not worth the cost, maybe someday if there comes a day you need to play creature defense, but for now there's a much more 10T option and thats Transfiguration Exam.

Winged Keys used to be one of my favorite cards. It allows you to chose which creature you don't take damage every turn and that is a very nice ability. Unless your opponent plays a steel claw the same turn they play the creature, you will never recieve damage from it. Since Diagon Alley has come out, I have had trouble working this card into decks however. In part, this is due to more and more options, but also it is due to the fact that almost everyone is playing denial of one sort or another in their decks. Of course, lots of people nowadays are playing through the arch in hopes that this will stop you from killing off their creatures and/or doing damage.

This is another way to deal with creatures without using spells, since Winged Keys is an item. Some people might tell you this card is just a really expensive incarcifors, but my friends, they are wrong. Cuz if you play Winged Keys and then later follow up with a Transfiguration Exam or Transfiguration Test, you're opponent has to work twice as hard to even get their creatures to damage you whereas incarcifars is here and then gone and only deals with one creature. Winged Keys is versatile in that you can choose a different creature every turn if you like.

I tried this card often and found only one deck in which it fits: Draco Malfoy, Slytherin/Bulgeye potion. In this deck, you need as many items as possible and you have to reach ten power (unless you're going for the eye ball combo). Perfect fit! It's is particularly fun to use against a Hebridian Black Dragon or a Fluffy. What better image than seeing the big pup flying through the air, lifted by thousands of little keys! Aaahhhh!
