And the first card to be reviewed from the new Chamber of Secrets set is.... Rabbit Slippers? Hunh? Gee, they must be saving the good stuff for later. Although this card is a two-for-one, the target must be of a narrow type. It only gets creatures. If you want mass creature kill, you'd be better off playing Trans Test. If you want two-for-one removal, then Scribblifors is the superior choice. Both of these alternatives carry a lower power cost than Rabbit Slippers. It looks like Harry Potter bunny cards keep trending weaker. If this continues, we may soon have a lagomorph rebellion on our hands. The thought of that makes my hare stand on end.

Against creatures, if you can get your lessons up, this card is great. You can discard 2 of your opponents creatures in play, instead of Mice to Snuffboxes, they can't play them again! But, with CoS decks now in full effect, creatures aren't as popular as they used to be, but they're still good. So, an iffy card, if they aren't running creatures, you've got a useless card in your hand.

This card is much like a Mice to Snuffboxes on steriods. Instead of bouncing two creatures you get to discard two creatures which is much much better. However eight power is a big deal if I’m hitting eight power I’m looking to play a Diffindo or a Scribblifors which can deal with anything on the table. This is a half way there card useful but expensive to play if you have problems with creatures play it otherwise play somethin else

This card is all essence a double Incarcifors and for only 2 more cost then a normal Incarcifors. Now I know all the critics out there are going to go, but what if your opponent isn't playing creatures what am I going to do then. Well here's the deal, you need to build your deck a certain way. Either as denial, attack, spell, creature, item, defensive, or any and all combinations you can think of. However, your deck should be prepared for any deck you might face, and while you may not be fearful of creatures, the majority of decks seen at tourneys will most likely have creatures. So some games this card might not prove as useful, but in the off chance your opponent is laying down some heavy creatures, this card could save your hare.

If your goal is anti-Creatures, this guy whoops Diffindo single-handed. But against decks without Creatures, this cards is totally useless, unless you wanted to discard your own Creatures for some reason. Great hurt in one situation, but totally useless in most others.

If you dig Incarcifors and youre not playing critters, this is the card for you! This fits right in there with Diffindo, so if you are playing denial and you have a need for pest control, this is definitely a cool option. It's good because you get to pick the two critters and they go gabybybaby. This might not seem like a lot, but if you are playing denial, they probably only have one or two creatures at a time out and this is a good counter to the ever dreaded halloween Feast. Of course you could always just play Scribblifors which is probably a safer bet, but there is no reason you couldn't play both. Lapifors kills one critter and lets you search for another, so that might be the best option if you yourself are playing creatures. And let us not forget good ol' trans exam at 10 power. Overall this card is definitely viable, but there is a lot of denial to choose from nowadays, so i'm not sure if it will see game play or not.
