How to Use

Normal Summon Magician’s Rod

When it’s Normal Summoned, Magician’s Rod allows you to add from your Deck to your hand a Spell/Trap Card that specifically lists the card “Dark Magician” in its text. You can use Magician’s Rod’s effect to search Dark Magic Attack and Magician’s Navigation. You cannot search The Eye of Timaeus via Magician's Rod's effect.

Activate Magician's Navigation

Magician's Navigation allows you to Special Summon a Dark Magician from your hand and a Level 7 or lower DARK Spellcaster-Type monster from your Deck. You can use Magician's Navigation to Special Summon Night's End Sorcerer and banish up to two cards from your opponent's Graveyard.

Use Night's End Sorcerer's effect to banish cards like The White Stone of Ancients, Subterror Behemoth Umastryx, Subterror Nemesis Warrior, Bacon Saver, Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru and Neos Fusion to prevent your opponent from activating their effects.

You can banish Magician’s Navigation from your Graveyard to target a face-up Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls and negate its effects until the end of the turn. If your opponent activates Neos Fusion, Red-Eyes Fusion or even Drowning Mirror Force, you can just banish Magician’s Navigation from your Graveyard and target that card to negate it. Keep in mind that you can only activate this effect of Magician’s Navigation if you control a Dark Magician and you can’t do it during the same turn the Trap Card was sent to the Graveyard.

Activate The Eye of Timaeus

The Eye of Timaeus allows you to Fusion Summon Dark Paladin, Amulet Dragon or Dark Flare Knight using only a Dark Magician you control as Fusion Material. You cannot search The Eye of Timaeus via Magician’s Rod’s effect, so there’s no way to add it to your hand.

Dark Paladin

Dark Paladin allows you to negate the activation of a Spell Card by discarding a card. You can use this effect of Dark Paladin how many times you want during the same turn, which will definitely come in handy seeing how popular Neos Fusion and Red-Eyes Fusion are.

Amulet Dragon

If Amulet Dragon is Special Summoned, you can target any number of Spell Cards in any Graveyard, banish them, and if you do, Amulet Dragon gains 100 ATK for each card banished by this effect.

Again, being able to banish cards like Neos Fusion before your opponent gets the chance to activate its effect is extremely relevant and the ATK gained via this effect is definitely not negligible.

If Amulet Dragon is destroyed by battle or card effect, you can target a Spellcaster-Type monster in your Graveyard and Special Summon it. Unlike Dark Paladin, Amulet Dragon doesn’t have any kind of protection, but the floating effect does increase its value, giving you a safer option to go into.

Dark Flare Knight

You take no Battle Damage from battles involving Dark Flare Knight and that’s the only reason why this card arguably deserves a spot in your Extra Deck. You could also play Mirage Knight, but that might weigh down the deck.

Legion the Fiend Jester

If Legion the Fiend Jester is sent from the field to the Graveyard, you can add a Spellcaster-Type Normal Monster from your Deck or Graveyard to your hand.

You can Tribute Legion the Fiend Jester to Special Summon Silent Magician, add Dark Magician to your hand and then activate Magician’s Navigation during your opponent’s turn or just Tribute it via Enemy Controller to take control of an opponent’s monster while also adding a copy of the Level 7 Spellcaster-Type monster to your hand.

Silent Magician

You can Special Summon Silent Magician by Tributing a Spellcaster-Type monster you control. If you want to avoid having your Legion the Fiend Jester destroyed or banished by your opponent before you are able to Tribute it, you can just Set it. Unless your opponent has the Toggle Button set to ON, they won’t be able to respond to your monster being Set and you will be able to Special Summon Silent Magician successfully.

Silent Magician is able to, once per turn, negate the activation of a Spell Card. Since, after being negated, the card is simply sent to the Graveyard without being destroyed, you can safely use this effect on Geartown or Ancient Gear Fortress to prevent your opponent from Summoning an Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon.

While its original ATK and DEF are definitely on the low side, thanks to its effect, Silent Magician can quickly become a pretty big threat, gaining 500 ATK for each card in your hand. If Silent Magician is destroyed by battle or card effect, you can Special Summon a Silent Magician LV8, a monster with 3500 ATK that’s also immune to the effects of your opponent’s Spell Cards, from your hand or Deck.

Arkana
Arkana

If you don't have a Dark Magician in your hand, you cannot activate Magician's Navigation, which is undoubtedly the best card in the entire deck. Thanks to this Skill, you will always have a Dark Magician in your opening hand.

Then, add from your Deck to your hand, 1 LIGHT monster with the same Level and Type as the monster you returned. -Return 1 LIGHT monster from your hand to your Deck. Then, add from your Deck to your hand, 1 DARK monster with the same Level and Type as the monster you returned. This Skill can only be used once per turn, and twice per Duel.
Umbra & Lumis
Umbra & Lumis

This Skill allows you to add Silent Magician to your hand by shuffling a copy of Legion the Fiend Jester back into the Deck and vice versa.

Weaknesses

  • Your opponent can negate Magician’s Navigation with Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En or prevent you from activating its effect from the Graveyard via Sealed Tombs.
  • Not being able to use Magician’s Navigation’s effect from the Graveyard the turn it was sent there is a pretty notable problem and the fact that the effect only works against Spell/Trap Cards, which are definitely not the only threats you will have to face, is also an issue.
  • Thousand Knives can be used to remove monsters from the board, but protection from destruction by card effect is quite common: the deck might actually struggle to deal with Blue-Eyes if The Eye of Timaeus is not available and, even then, Snipe Hunter could still be used to get rid of Dark Paladin.

Use Balance (skill) version, more consistent and that way you can also play as Yugi:

3x Magician's Rod
3x Dark Magician
3x Magician Navigation
4x traps of choice (I am testing 2x Mirror Wall and 2x Rising Force, yes, RF cuz you have a lot of draw power recovery, you want to get copies of Magician Navigation in the graveyard for its 2nd effect, and you can boost your Dark Magician for exact 4k attack power)
2x World Legacy Clash
2x Dark Magic Expanded
1x Dark Magic Attack
1x Illusion Magic
1x The Claw of Hermos OR The Eye of Timaeus (w/e you prefer, I prefer Claw so I can use Time Magic Hammer to counter set monsters, bigger att monsters that can't be destroyed, Yubel etc.)

Use this version.

heal from broken heart" Love spell from dr.Unity brought my husband back" I'm so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman" After 12years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he could come back to me, I was really worried and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a Love spell for me. 11hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before, All thanks to Dr Unity. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr.Unity is real spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast. Do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity now. Here’s his contact,Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 ,website:https://unityspelltemples.blogspot.com ,your kindness will never be forgotten.

Why does this website even exist?

It's not affiliated to Konami, it's just a "fan made" domain created with malicious intend.

People should notice how there are only negative and hateful comments toward this game here (and also off-topic spams) GameA exists to create a bad reputation against Duel Links. On the other hand, the Google search engine helps to promote this sabotage by showing GameA as the first result when you search the words "duel links".

Google helps to boycott any company that doesn't belong to HUGE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS.

IT IS TRUE AND REAL!!! I just have to share this testimony, seeing is believing. I met with The Great Dr. Gurilarico Guru. He is a true and real spell caster. He brought back my ex for me within 48 hours after he casts a spell for me. I insisted I will not meet with my ex again because of many bad experiences I have had with fake spell casters from Africa and Asia. I go to the doctor and not believing things will work out well, not until I got Johnson my husband back in my life again. The Great Dr. Gurilarico Guru is real, trustworthy and based in Europe and the United States. You have nothing to lose or worried with here. Contact the great Dr. Gurilarico Guru directly via email on dr.gurilarico@gmail.com or SMS or call him directly on Europe: +370(662)61-563, USA: +1(832) 263-7128, Whatsapp Number: +1(512) 537-7128. You are in safe hands. he is always ready to help. A trial will convince you. Contact him today.

Yeah at the end of season when all top players are sitting in kog try using it when next season begins.. deck can't deal going 2nd against subterrors/six sams and blue eyes still has a better chance winning against dm

Why the hell 3 Navigation and 3 Timaeus? That will increase the chances of dead draws. Two of them will suffice. Change them for a staple of your choosing.

You only play timaeus + navigation if you are using Balance, not destiny draw.
