The Best Harry Potter: Magic Awakened Decks – 2023

Shahzaib Manzoor

The card-based combat system of Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is a hit!

Spells, Creatures, Companions, and Echoes come together to complete a deck of cards. Create a suitable deck for the proper gameplay mode, and you’ll obliterate your enemies. Fail to find the right combinations, and enemies will walk all over you.

One deck can have eight Magic (Spell & Creature) cards and three Companions Cards. There are over 80 Spells, Creatures, and Companion cards in Harry Potter: Magic Awakened. 

Then there are Echoes. Echoes boost the effects of Spells and Creatures, lending a helping hand in duels.

With all this at your helm, the sheer number of combinations possible can be overwhelming. Similarly, running out of ideas is easy when things don’t work.

That’s why I’ve curated a list of the best Harry Potter: Magic Awakened decks for 1v1, 2v2, and Forbidden Forest (PvE mode) raids. 

Whether you’re looking for new ideas or simply want to win every duel by recreating and using proven decks, you’ve entered the right classroom.

Wands out, Wizards!

Best Harry Potter: Magic Awakened Decks For 1v1

Harry Potter: Magic Awakened has two main gameplay modes- Duelling Club (PvP) and Forbidden Forest (PvE).

Within the Duelling Club, players battle other players in real time. It can be a 1-on-1 battle or a 2v2 duel.

In 1v1 duels, there is one goal- defeat your opponent before they defeat you. Unlike 2v2 or PvE, where partners can bail you out sometimes, there’s little room for error in 1v1 duels. That’s why you need a well-rounded deck for 1v1.

Don’t go all defensive and let your opponent walk over you, but there’s no need to be an ultra-aggro mage. 

Find the right balance by experimenting with these 1v1 decks below.

Note: The suggested Echoes are a big help. However, the decks are solid without the Echoes. You can also use different Echoes to experiment.

Hagrid’s Defenses

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Acromantula Venom.
Ashwinder.
Atmospheric Charm.
Bewitched Snowballs.
Broomstick.
Incendio.
Inflatus.
Spiders.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Daniel Page.
Rubeus Hagrid.
Rubeus Hagrid.

The goal here is to drain your opponent before landing the killer blow. 

Spiders and Ashwinder will keep your opponent occupied long enough for you to deal massive damage with Acromantula Venom and Atmospheric Charm. 

The duels will last long, but winning chances are high with this one.

Bloody Bludgers

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Atmospheric Charm.
Bludger.
Blast-Ended Skrewt.
Confringo.
Erumpent.
Incarcerous.
Matagot.
Golden Snitch. 
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Ivy Warrington.
Lottie Turner.
Dobby.

I got the Bludger card on the first day I started playing Harry Potter: Magic Awakened. At that time, it was the highest damage dealer in my deck until I pulled the Orb of Water from Magical Studies.

While ensuring to catch and return the Bludger, players end up dodging enemy attacks as well. Opponents can hardly land a hit on you.

Mix that with Dobby’s Apparition boost, and you’ll be untouchable.

Hagrid’s Hostility

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Acromantula Venom.
Bombastic Bomb Box.
Bewitched Snowballs.
Erumpent.
Inflatus.
The Monster Book of Monsters.
Sectumsempra.
Troll.
Rubeus Hagrid.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Daniel Page.
Rubeus Hagrid.

Hagrid is the caregiver of the Wizarding World, but this is the deck that really brings the best out of his Companion card and Echo.

When his Companion card is used, Hagrid increases the player’s movement speed with a lift on his motorbike. The motorbike also soaks up some attacks and crashes straight into your opponents to deal damage. 

Troll and The Monster Book of Monsters should be enough to take care of the rest.

Newt’s Fantastic Beasts

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Accio Snowman.
Expulso.
Swooping Evil.
Cornish Pixies.
Niffler.
Golden Snitch.
Transfiguration.
Erumpent.
Ron Weasley.
Ivy Warrington.
Minerva McGonagall.
Newt Scamander.

The Fantastic Beasts are in full flow in Harry Potter: Magic Awakened.

With Niffler sniffling at the back and Erumpent dealing AoE impact damage, this deck is all about overwhelming your opponents with the summons.

However, this deck works best with Newt’s Echoes. That unlocks after clearing Stage 8 of the Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration. So, get Newt’s Echo before recreating this deck.

Now, let’s take a look at some 2v2 Harry Potter: Magic Awakened decks.

Best Harry Potter: Magic Awakened Decks For 2v2

Some of the 1v1 decks will work just as well in 2v2 duels, provided that your partner has a decent deck. However, if you are not willing to take any chances, here are some 2v2 decks that can patch over your and your partner’s weaknesses.

Snape’s Support

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Accio.
Atmospheric Charm.
Golden Snitch.
Piertotum Locomotor.
Phoenix.
Pawn.
Sectumsempra.
Time-Turner. 
Kevin Farrell.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Cassandra Vole.
Severus Snape.

Healing, defense, potent attacks- this deck has the right Spells and Summons for any 2v2 duel.

While Time-Turner and Piertotum Locomotor are the obvious big guns here, the deck’s real power lies in Phoenix. 

This Legendary card costs 7 Mana but has a powerful area healing effect, making it worth the Mana.

Distractions, Distractions!

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Acromantula’s Nest.
Broomstick.
Nebulus.
Occamy.
Protego Totalum.
Spiders.
Sectumsempra.
Troll.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Lottie Turner.
Frey Twins.
Weasley Twins.

This is one of my favorite 2v2 decks purely because of the chaos it unleashes on the opponents. Your opponents can’t catch a breath with the Occamy, Spiders, and Troll all charging toward them. 

If that’s not enough, Acromantula’s Nest and the Frey Twins will create enough openings for you to attack with all you might.

Better pray that you don’t face off against this deck. By the time you decide who to attack, half of your health is already gone.

Pets & Beasts

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Essence of Dittany.
Inflatus.
Matagot.
Niffler.
Oppugno.
Swelling Solution.
Stack of Monster Book of Monsters.
Thunderbird.
Lottie Turner.
Cassandra Vole.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Rubeus Hagrid.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Hagrid’s Pets and Newt’s Beasts work well together.

You’ll be heavily relying on the Stack of Monster Book of Monsters. As soon as your opponent finishes one stack, the next one should be ready. Niffler and Matagot should keep your opponents occupied while the Monster Books cooldown wears off.

Back these up with Hagrid’s Echo, and you have a fiery deck at your hands.

Harry’s Deadly Dash

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Ashwinder.
Bewitched Snowballs.
Expelliarmus.
Expulso.
Inflatus.
Oppugno.
Three-Headed Puppy.
Stupefy.
Lottie Turner.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Hermoine Granger.
Harry Potter.

An all-out attack with one of the smartest wizards, Hermoine Granger, is never a bad idea.

Use Ashwinder and Bewitched Snowballs to break the ice, no pun intended. Stupefy and Expelliarmus are good attacking options too. And for dessert, it’s time to unleash the Three-Headed Puppy and summon Hermoine Granger.

This mounts a three-layered attack, with the final layer dealing explosive damage.

Best Harry Potter: Magic Awakened Decks For Forbidden Forest

While PvP duels are fun, the PvE mode is more important. 

Players can raid the Forest alone or team up with other players. But the one thing that stays the same is the dangers. From Spiders to Dragons, the Forest houses some of the deadliest creatures of the Wizarding World.

But these decks can help you keep them at bay and progress nicely.

Every stage you clear in the Forbidden Forest unlocks new Cards and Echoes. Moreover, the rewards of clearing a stage are much better than winning duels.

The Forbidden Forest is a different ball game altogether. That’s why you’ll see some extreme and unorthodox decks in this section.

Harry The Forest Guide

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Ashwinder.
Essence of Dittany.
Expulso.
Incarcerous.
Incendio.
Nebulus.
Oppugno.
Sectumsempra.
Lottie Turner.
Daniel Page.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Harry Potter.

This spell-riddled deck is designed to do one thing and one thing only, clear the board ASAP!

Drop Ashwinder at the start, and then, it’s attack after attack using one spell card after the other. Enemies already attacked by Ashwinder will only need one or two strikes of any of the spells in this deck. 

You won’t need much defense or healing because the enemy will hardly get a punch in.

Newt’s Wanderers

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Erumpent.
Fwooper.
Fire Crab.
Incarcerous.
Matagot.
Spiders.
Swooping Evil.
Troll.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Lottie Turner.
Daniel Page.
Newt Scamander.

If a spell-packed deck doesn’t suit your style, try out this deck full of Newt’s favorite beasts.

Summon Matagot, Fire Crab, Spiders, and Troll one after another to not only hold but destroy any and every evil of the Forbidden Forest.

There’s just one catch to this deck. Echo of Newt Scamander is a must-have. Newt’s Echo will allow you to summon Erumpent or Thunderbird for just one Mana.

Heroic Hermoine

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Broomstick.
Confringo.
Essence of Dittany.
Incendio.
Nebulus.
Oppugno.
Tornado Charm.
Tebo.
Ivy Warrington.
Daniel Page.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Hermoine Granger.

Another deck where the suggested Echo plays a vital role.

If you can’t tell from the Spells & Creatures column, this deck is a mix of low-cost and high-cost cards. 

However, it’s no accident. It’s by design. 

Use all the low-cost cards first to get the best out of this deck. Doing so will activate Harmoine Granger’s Echo. That will bring down the cost of high-cost cards. That’s when you unleash hell.

Hagrid the Forest Dweller

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Baby Antipodean Opaleye.
Essence of Dittany.
Howler.
Incendio.
Incarcerous.
Nebulus.
Swelling Solution.
Tornado Charm.
Cassandra Vole.
Ivy Warrington.
Daniel Page. 
Rubeus Hagrid.

Nothing works better against the creatures of the Forbidden Forest than a creature of the same Forbidden Forest.

There are some useful Spells and Creatures in this deck, but the real ace in this pack is the Baby Antipodean Opaleye. With Hagrid’s Echo boost, the Opaleye mounts a good attack against every creature of the Forest.

But it’s still a decent main attacker, even if you haven’t unlocked Hagrid’s Echo.

Prince of Darkness

Spells & CreaturesCompanionsSuggested Echo
Atmospheric Charm.
Bombastic Bomb Box.
Cornish Pixies.
Erumpent.
Incendio.
Niffler.
Spiders.
The Monster Book of Monsters.
Cassandra Vole.
Daniel Page.
Robyn Thistlethwaite.
Severus Snape.

Finishing up this guide is a simple and effective deck to clear earlier stages of the Forbidden Forest.

A few strong Spells well complimented by some quick Creatures almost put you in auto mode.

Monster Books and Spiders will charge head-on, and the Bomb Box will lend a hand from afar. All that’s left to finish off enemies is to use Atmospheric Charm as the final blow.

While these Harry Potter: Magic Awakened decks are tried and tested in battle, other factors can affect your experience.

Card Level and Echoes have a big impact on the battles.

So, level up your cards to get the best out of them. Moreover, build a strategy that works for you. Randomly dropping Cards just won’t work.
