Echoes in Harry Potter Magic Awakened are deck-specific bonus characters that can take your good deck to a great deck. But, Echoes have specific bonuses that synergize best in specific decks and don’t work in others. Because of that, I’ve created this guide to help you determine what the best Echoes in Harry Potter Magic Awakened are and which decks to use them in.
What are Echoes in Harry Potter Magic Awakened?
Echoes in Harry Potter Magic Awakened are characters from the Harry Potter books and movies that are equipped to each deck.
Once you reach the Forbidden Forest and unlock your first Echo, you can return to the Forbidden Forest and unlock more Echoes as you level up and complete stages. However, the moment you unlock Echoes, you need to equip an Echo to every deck — and trust me, you’ll want to do that, especially with the best Echoes for your specific deck.

Best Echoes in Harry Potter Magic Awakened, ranked
There are a few Echoes in Harry Potter Magic Awakened that are objectively better than others, but every Echo has a place and playstyle. My favorite Echoes to use are Hermione Granger for my spell deck since she makes spells cost less after using lower MP spells and Dobby since he’s an early unlock and starts at a high level and rarity.
Before we get to the tier list, here is every Echo in Harry Potter Magic Awakened and how to unlock them:
- Dobby – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 1.
- Hermione Granger – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 3.
- Harry Potter – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 4.
- Severus Snape – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 5.
- Newt Scamander – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 8.
- Weasley Twins – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 10.

- Bellatrix Lestrange – Complete Forbidden Forest Solo Exploration Stage 16.
S-tier Echoes – Harry Potter Magic Awakened
- Bellatrix Lestrange
- Severus Snape
- Newt Scamander
- Hermione Granger
Bellatrix Lestrange is a hard Echo to get, but she is arguably the best Echo in the game. Whenever you deal damage with Bellatrix Lestrange as your Echo, you fill a corruption bar that summons a Death Eater once full. If you use Crucio, you automatically summon Three Death Eaters. This is an extremely good Echo as it uses summons and spells to your advantage and is good in any deck, especially one centered on Crucio.
Severus Snape is a great Echo for dealing high damage. Severus Snape changes every other auto attack to Sectumsempra which can bounce between enemies. If you’re deck has you playing up close and personal, so you always are dealing auto-attacks, then Snape is an amazing Echo.
Newt Scamander is the best Echo for a summoner deck. As you summon creatures, you’ll get Thunderbird, Erumpent, and Tebo cards that cost one MP. Overwhelm your enemies with summons and deal high damage in the process.
Hermione Granger is the last S-tier Echo since some of the best spell decks in the game require Hermione Granger. After using spell cards that cost less than three MP, the MP cost of your highest card is lowered by half. With this in mind, you can have a deck with very high MP cost, but access them easily by having Hermione Granger half their MP cost after using lower MP cost cards.
A-tier Echoes – Harry Potter Magic Awakened
- Harry Potter
- Rubeus Hagrid
Harry Potter is without a doubt the best free-to-play/beginner Echo. Harry Potter’s ability increases the damage and healing effects of spells that cost three MP or less. So, if you’re a free-to-play player and are having back luck getting the best cards in the game like Avada Kedavra, then Harry Potter is a good Echo to try.
Rubeus Hagrid is a good Echo for summons, but he isn’t better than Newt Scamander. Rubeus Hagrid increases the attack speed of your highest MP cost summon and heals it when its health drops below 50%. This Echo is definitely good if you’re building a deck focused on one high-cost, high-damage summon.
Dobby deserves to be in the A-tier because of how accessible he is and how useful his ability is. Dobby gives you more movement cards and allows every other movement card to be an Apparition which allows you to teleport to the spot of your choosing. Aftering apparating, an afterimage of yourself stays in the area and it damages and slows your enemy when it’s destroyed. The best times to use Dobby are against AoE crowd-control decks.
B-tier Echoes – Harry Potter Magic Awakened
- Weasley Twins
The Weasley Twins aren’t as good as the other Echoes since the others are so helpful in numerous ways. The Weasley Twins reduce the cooldown of your companion cards and give you three new ones after you’ve used your first three. While this isn’t a bad ability, companion cards aren’t as important as spells and summons in most cases.
C-tier Echoes – Harry Potter Magic Awakened
- Neville Longbottom
The worst Echo in Harry Potter Magic Awakened is Neville Longbottom. Neville Longbottom converts your attack spells to heals when no enemies are around, which is good for a summoning deck, and it heals NPCs more than player units. You can use Neville Longbottom effectively in Duo Duels to heal your teammates and summons, but overall, Neville Longbottom is a weak Echo.
