This is basically an Incarcifors for one less power cost that has the compensating drawback of healing your opponent for one point of damage. When I play, I try to make my focus to be causing the greatest amount of injury I can to my opponent. Helping my foe seems rather counterproductive. I guess that's where the "counter" part of this card's name comes from. The "curse" part is undoubtedly the game losses that come from playing with a card as narrow as this. It is, after all, a dead card against a creatureless deck. If you want a deck where every card counts, this should be avoided.

Rating: 1.5


You're adding to their deck again =/ Take Root, for the same power amount, is WAY better then this card. The creature is discarded from play. =\ Picking on Neville is much better then this card, and Incarcifors is one lesson higher. Little use, for a good reason.

Rating: 2


I’m gonna make this one really short out of disdain for this card. 1. It is bad 2. Play something else 3. Try PON or Caught.

Rating: 1


This is another one of those cards where you waste an action just to put a card back into your opponents deck. There are tons of cards these days that let your opponent search their deck while their also cards that let your opponent retrieve cards from their discard pile. Well I would like to believe that putting in the discard pile is much better. So lets see which is most likely. Your opponent has a halloween feast or your opponent has a gringotts vault key or lapifors. Halloween Feast right? So then by this logic the safest place to put a card you don't want your opponent to have is, you guessed it on the bottom of their deck. However, putting cards back into your opponents deck won't win you the game, but putting cards in their discard pile will. Well that is quite a predictament. I always say, send it to the discard pile until your opponent can consistently retrieve it.

Rating: 3


Like Vanish/Petrified, but works on Creatures only, therefore it's less flexible. Not that Vanish or Petrified were all that great in the first place, but this definatly isn't an improvement.

Rating: 1


I kinda like the looks of this card. Once again it gets around Halloween Feast and you get to pick the critter. I might opt for this instead of Incarcifors because retrieval is much more common than searching your deck. In fact many decks rely on some of their critters hitting the big bad discard pile. Definitely better than Take Root which costs the same. Once again it only targets creatures, but very often this is not a huge liability.
