Average Rating: 1.80 (based on 5 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


It takes an action to draw this card and another to play it. To use it, you must use an action, and also discard your lesson in play. That lesson was worth two actions itself, as it took one to draw and another to play. Thus, the first use of this item costs a total of five actions, and each succeeding use only requires a "bargain" three actions. Great deal, huh? OK. So what are we getting for this sizable investment? Let's see...... Two damage to our opponent. Is this a misprint? Just two damage? That is unspeakably bad! I wouldn't consider this card playable if it dealt three damage, with an option of directing it towards a creature. I am devoutly relieved that neither of the two boxes of Chamber of Secrets packs I ordered contained this sorry excuse for a card.

This card has one really good use. It combos beautifully with the Philosopher’s Stone. You just pack your deck with denial Ollivanders and 2 or 3 of these guys and you are on your way to an almost infinite cycle of healing and damage pretty cool huh (props to Snuffles for showing me this far-out trick). Outside of that combo it has little use unless you chose to play an all lessons deck but even then four damage a turn won’t really help you.

Alright, I know what you're thinking this card blows chunks. But what about 4 of these in your deck, maybe 4 Vault Keys, Hermoine as your starter, 4 Human Chess Games and that leaves 48 Lessons. Get your power up as fast as you can, slap down the Human Chess Game, and then watch your opponent not be able to play anything while you discard lessons to do damage. Sounds like a nice little lockdown to me. Of course this could totally backfire and not even work at all. I mean this item isn't that good, I'm just trying to suggest a way to use it, don't blame the messenger if it doesn't work though.

Transfiguration never has had the best damage dealing cards, and certainly isn't going to start with this. Most decks won't splash Trans for it's history of heavy damage, so if you need cards that are going to damage your opponent, please, don't play mono-Trans and never end up trying the wonderful world of splashing. :)

Well they finally did it! They made a Transfiguration card that does a decent amount of damage. Of course if you are playing anything other than straight Transfiguration, you will find better options than 2 damage for one lesson. However if you have one of those crazy decks that gets a lot of lessons out fast, but only needs so many, this might be a good option if you don't have any damage in your hand. The first deck i built when COS came out was this crazy deck where i used Arthur Weasley with the Philosopher's Stone. Then i'd get all my lessons back and start killing my opponent off with them lol. This is definitely one of those cards that goes in the weird decks. You won't find any mainstream decks that say you must have four of these in order to win, but i can bet you will find a few decks that have one or two just in case.
