So they add more support to other archetypes but still screw Ariana over by not fixing this skill

The skill nerf was a bit harsh, should be more specific to dark magician, it is bull 🔥 that I can’t fusion summon with it until next turn, which means one card my hand is useless it should only apply spellcasters with effects such as cosmo brain

dwarf star dragon planeter seems useful to get COSMO
Dab
Still a great skill to play dark magician.

You can still get cosmo brain by the effect of the new ranked duel card dwarf star dragon planeter

Everyone: Blue eyes will die off when you can't have Cosmo Brain first turn

Just means Kaiba maybe used more than Arkana. Still might use this skill for a version of Buster Fusion though.

not many do that really, they just expect to get easy wins. But the version of the BEWD deck with Arkana + Offerings was really entertaining and fun to play (and also very competitive)

So the only nerf to this skill is that you now have to stall for one turn before doing the usual combo with Blue-Eyes stuff.

Really, Konami?

If your reason is "Arkana should use Dark Magician", then what you should do is making the skill requires the deck to run a DARK Spellcaster-Type NORMAL monster.....or make it so that the skill requires the deck to have 3 DARK Spellcaster monsters with different names, something that only DM decks can do.

RIP this skill. They about to make it to where you can’t special summon your first turn.

Technically you can still do Dark Magician + Ancient Rules Combo. You just can't special summon EFFECT monsters on your first turn. You can only set them normally instead.

All this does is negate Cosmo Brain from being summoned on your first turn unless you have a stall plan for your next turn.
