It takes an action to draw this card, and two more to play it. For that you get two draws, two damage to your opponent, and a heal for two cards. That's a bit on the weak side. Now, if you have some means of playing characters at half cost, say with a Ron Weasley starter, then this card becomes almost playable. Almost. At some point, it may have future value, due to it being a Hufflepuff card and a ghost card. At this time, however, those facts carry no benefit.

This guy does a little bit of every thing in very small quantities. Now why would we not like a jack of all trades such as this one. 2 reasons he requires two lessons to lay and he can only be used once a game which is very bad because though good his ability isn’t overpowering. When I saw this card I wanted it to be You May Use Two Actions not once per game but we will take what they give us and be thankful for it.

The Fat Friar is an interesting card. You get to draw 2 cards, do 2 damage, and heal 2 cards. Thats a nice little trick except that it will cost you 2 actions. I really don't forsee the Friar becoming one of those must have ancillary characters, but I could see him performing well in a Ron Weasley deck. The Friar could do well with other characters but on his own, he should just be like the ghost he is and vanish.

Not a starter, so gona cost ya two actions on average. It counts as a healing card so it usually can't get healed itself by most other cards. Semi-good ability if it wasn't only once per game. It would be alot higher in my opinion if it was atleast once per turn. Interesting, he costs 2 actions, draws 2 cards, does 2 damage, heals 2 cards, and gets a rating of ... take a guess. ;)

He is definitely kind of neat as he has several small abilities all rolled into one. I would put this guy into the Fun Character category. If you are doing a theme deck centered around ghosts or just like to have neat cards in your deck, he could come in useful. As far as competitive play goes.... It is the rare game indeed that he will make a difference.
