If your area features a lot of creature decks, this is an effective way of hurting them. It combines well with bounce cards, such as Mice to Snuffleboxes and Professor Quirrell. If you're running a lesson denial deck, your opponent may have built up a good number of critters they are waiting to play. However, there are enough quality creatureless decks around that I tend to look for other solutions to the critter problem. Remember that even if this card doesn't get any creatures, it does get a look into your opponent's hand for a nice "scouting" report. Make sure you take full advantage of this and memorize the cards they have remaining, and adjust your game plan accordingly. I've seen many people give short shrift to this benefit, because it makes them feel like they're cheating. But it's not cheating, it's legit.

I absolutely do not like cards with limited usage. However ones that have a limited usage against creatures are tolerable as long as they can save the day for you and this one when it comes down to it really can't. It is a mere annoyance compared to Riding the Centaur or In the Stands. I does combo nicely with Mice to Snuffbox or In the Stands, but most of the time when you play this it is a wild guess to whether you are gonna do some damage to their creature base or not. I have never really played this card it takes to many other cards to make it work and I recommend you don't either.

This card lets you discard all the creatures in your opponents hand. This works well against Halloween Feast and even works wonder in conjuction with Quirrell. Yes, I'm sure my esteem colleagues will point out that this card is useless if your opponent isn't playing creatures, well I'm willing to bet that at least 75% of all the decks created have creatures in them, so its always better to be safe then to be sorry that you included some creature protection in your deck.

Rating: 2.5


I like this card when you can get it out early against creature decks; at least I used to. There are so many better anti-creature cards out there now that it is tough to see this one take shape these days. But there is a deck type that should want this card. The denial decks should find room for a couple of these in their decks. Why? Because they focus on keeping the CoMC lessons off the table and when they do get one of these it will hurt a creature player plenty. Also this is a great defensive card against the Halloween Feast.

Rating: 2.7


This card can come in very handy and in my belief it is a bit underplayed. Five power comes 2nd-3rd turn almost every game and you can knock back your opponent's strategy real quick if they are playing creatures. This is great with Quirrel or Griphook or against a Halloween Feast. A lot of people tend to opt for killing creatures as they come into play because this card can be unstable. Even if your opponent is playing critters, it doesn't mean they have any in their hand and if you draw this at the wrong point in the game it can really hurt you. Overall though, if creatures are a threat to you, consider playing with this card and In The Stands. That can be a crucial combo if you work it right. Mrs. Norris is always nice to have out at times like these.

Another BS-Lovable here! A sweet Creature hater, you might call it. And the name Out of the Woods is perfect for it. First, you get to look in your opponents hand. What more could you ask for? How about killing all the creatures in your opponent’s hand while your there? A definitely great card to work with against Creatures. And, I might add, affordable at only 5 of Charms. BS-Lovable all the way.
