Anyone looking at this card will first note that the picture shows a rabbit. That should be fair warning that this card is something to watch out for. In the game of Harry Potter, bunnies are mean. In this case, for the cost of only one more lesson than the old standby, Incarcifors, we get to not only snuff the creature of our choice, but we also get to fetch a creature from our deck and put it into our hand. Kill your Fluffy, and go get mine. Cool! The only problem I have with this card is that it is worthless against creatureless decks, which already have a strong presence in the game. If you compare this with Scribblifors, which is useful against all decks, this drawback is clear. However, despite the narrowness of this card, it is so strong against other creature decks, that I always try to fit one into my red/brown deck designs that feature large creatures. Putting any more than that in probably is too high a risk, unless you absolutely know that your opponent will be playing with creatures. In that case, put as many as you can in.

Rating: 3.5


Since creatures is the main metagame currently, this card is ok…but, most creature decks run Lost Notes/Picking on Neville, so getting to 7 lessons is easier said than done. But, if you do get to 7 lessons, this card is great. You get rid of one of your opponents cards, and you gain one in your hand. That saves you an action of drawing the creature, and saves you from losing cards from your deck. Also, since this requires the same amount of lessons as Welsh Green Dragon, you can kill one of your opponents cards, grab Welsh, and boom, 6 damage…:D

Hmmm. This card is a quite good upgrade from Incarifors. For only one more power you can search you library for one creature card which is quite an useful ability. However if they don't play creatures you can't lay it and search for a creature so it will just sit in your hand forever doing nothing. This card which has a quite limited scope of play is normally not worth playing unless your deck is weak against creatures and you like to find a big creature that can swing the game for you such as a dragon, troll or Squid. If you don't play creatures and need some creature control for transfiguration play Incarifors or better yet Diffindo or Scribblifors.

Lapifors? What kind of name is Lapifors? Did they just want it to rhyme with Incarcifors? Who thinks of these things? Anyways, sorry about that. Now when this card first came out, everyone was all about putting this card in their deck and lately no one puts this card in their deck, and why the heck not? Not only does this card get rid of your opponents peskiest creature it lets you pull your most feared creature from your deck. Hello? Advantage you!!! Now image your opponent has a Hebridean Dragon out and you use this and then put your Hebridean Dragon out, that is 14 damage swing, cause you're taking 7 lesson and they are taking 7 more. I suggest Lapiforing as much as you can because its like a Incarcifors/Mysterious Egg all in one. Sounds like a bargain to me.

Rating: 4.25


7 power is a tough reach unless you are playing for big creatures and have your deck built to climb the power ladder fast. But the part of this card that really bothers me is that it is only useful if your opponent is playing creatures too. Granted when I have used this card in the past and "It Rocked!" But I like the idea of cards getting creatures without the depending on your opponent's cards like Halloween Feast.

Rating: 3.25


This is a great step up from Incarcifors. For one more power, not only do you kill one of their creatures, but you get to look for any old creature you want. You could search for a Doxy and use your second action to kill off another creature. Or just go for the beef and bring out your big bad Dragon or whatever. A lot of people are running creatures, but a lot of people prefer to go for the universal denial like Picking on Neville, etc. I've seen this card used in conjuction with decks that only have a few big creatures and that works fairly well so that you don't have to rely on drawing it.

Rating: 4



When this card was released with the Diagon Alley set, it became an instant favourite amongst the online Apprentice community as most players were using creatures. For a cost of 7, this card gives you a nice card advantage as it not only lets you remove any of your opponents' creatures, but lets you search for the right creature. Perhaps you need doxy to remove those annoying cheap creatures, or Hebridean Black Dragon to finish someone off, this card can come in handy.

Despite the obvious advantages, this card can be VERY risky to play. First of all, you have to hope that your opponent is using creatures, and if not then you will be very stuck. You also have to hope that in this "era of denial", it may take a long time for you to reach the 7 power mark.

Personally, I don't like cards that rely on your opponent running a certain type of deck, so a much better option would be Scribblifors.
