Bludger - Quidditch Cup

Card No: 1

Set: Quidditch Cup
Average Rating: 3.58 (based on 5 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale

5 is the highest rating.


This card is often used in conjunction with matches that are difficult to solve, such as Muddy Practice or Three-Month-Long Match. Having Nimbus 2000 out boosts the damage up to 5 per turn, which isn't bad for an item costing only 4 lessons to cast. Add in some Power Plays and Hooch to run things, and you've got an interesting core group of cards for a deck. I'm not completely sold on this card, though. If I'm going to rely on a two card combo (Bludger + any match) for dealing damage, I'd like to to deliver more than three each turn.

Rating: 2


This is the only non creature card that has the potential to deal damage every turn. This card was greatly improved when Adventures at Hogwarts was released, it gave us Muddy Practice which on it's own is not very good but combined with Bludger it is very very good. They will either take damage forever or start discarding to the match which not only wastes actions but cards in their hand. Once they have discarded three or four cards to the match then you can lay Beater Grabs the Snitch and start all over again. Another bonus is that Nimbus2000 bumps the damage up to five a turn!! Downside is if you play no matches there is no point to this card other than that this card rules!

Rating: 4.7


The Bludger is under rated and works just like a creature in that your opponent takes damage at the beginning of your turn systematically. Most people don't use Bludgers cause they only use matches with Catch the Snitch. I think they are too afraid to leave a match out, cause they're afraid of losing the match. Well there is a match one doesn't have to be too afraid of losing really fast and thats Muddy Practice. In essence you have at least two turns before your opponent can solve and if you get the Bludger out, you could be doing some hard damage and then if they get close to solving, play that Catch the Snitch. There are alot of possibilities with this card, and I really like the combo possibilities.

Rating: 3.8


This hunts and pecks. No it's not an angry chicken. But a Bludger by any other name would just be a ball. This card rules when you are playing in the Mud. Muddy Practice that is. Combined with your trusty Nimbus 2000 you are looking at some serious pecking order stuff. I recommend playing and treating this combo like creatures. However beware of this combo if your opponent is carrying Quidditch too. If they have Catch the Snitch in their hand…OUCH! And I don't mean discard 5 and 1 from your hand, either. There are a few other nice Matches to use with this, but here is my secret weapon. If you have never played a Potions/Quidditch deck, think of those prevent all damage cards while you have your Bludgers and Match out. Hmm, very interesting…. My Precious!

Rating: 4


I really like this item. A great combo you can get going is Quality Quidditch Supplies. If you go with Sly Draco, you can get a bludger into play and do another action every turn. So after two or so turns you have 3-4 bludgers in play and then lay down a match. this can become very interesting with the new match Muddy Practice. At any rate, you can theoretically win any match if you combo this with the right spells like fouled! and sloth grip. I made a deck with quid and potions where you actually win the Three Month Long Match using the eye ball combo and bludgers. you would be amazed at how fast you can do thirty damage. However, for most decks, catch the snitch or just everyday damage like critters or spells often works better.

Rating: 3.4



The only time a bludger is worth being played is if it's the base of the deck. If you make a deck with matches and Bludgers, it can be very strong if you've done it right. 4 bludgers out and a match = Fluffy. Even if you've only got one out it's as good as most creats. But without a match this card is worthless. So find the right deck and this card has the potential to beat down your opponent quickly and efficiently. But don't make a bludger by throwing this into any quid deck.

Rating: 2.5 (Guest Reviewer's ratings are not added into the average.)
