Pros

  • High attack and good defense.
  • Magic Jammer + a better Buster Blader effect in 1 monster.

Cons

  • Both the fusion material monsters are level 7 monsters.

Tips, related cards, skills

Trap Jammer

With its ability to stop/prevent spell cards altogether, you can pressure your opponent even further by using Trap Jammer. This will help protect, not just Dark Paladin, but your other monsters from cards like Mirror Wall or other traps.

Fusion substitutes

Dark Magician and Buster Blader uses different supports, and since it doesn't say that it needs those exact monsters as the fusion materials, you can use fusion substitute monsters instead. This will allow both of them to shine individually in their own decks, or make a fusion oriented deck by putting both Dark Paladin and Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman.

Outstanding Dog Marron

You can use Outstanding Dog Marron or Sword of Deep-Seated so you can activate Dark Paladin's ability without losing a card.

Tour Bus From the Underworld

Allows you to bring back your monster from your graveyard to your deck. This can be good if you have other cards to search for them again.

Diffusion Wave-Motion

Allows Dark Paladin to attack multiple monsters in a turn and negate all their effect monster's effects.

Mirage Dragon

Increases Dark Paladin's attack and prevents your opponent from being able to activate traps during battle phase.

Happen to me to. But on the last 30 packs -_-
Someone.
Is this card still considered good?
The reason I ask is that since then, there are now Silent Magician Lv8 and Horus the Black Flame Dragon Lv8 who have similar effects of negating spell cards and being able to do so WITHOUT discarding a card for their effect. Both Horus and SM are easier to summon with Lv Up compared to DP.

Ok my bad (slightly). Silent Magician Lv8 only cancels spell effects used against it. Dark Paladin can cancel any activation of a spell card. However Horus does the same.

It's still a good card. Strangely enough, even with silent magician and horus in the game, they don't make this card useless or obsolete. Still a very viable card.

Yugi deserves a special animation upon summoning this guy since he beats BEUD under normal condition: Kaiba having at least 4 Dragon-type monsters in his field/graveyard so that Dark Paladin would have 4900 ATK. :/

if konami releases sinister serpent, would it work if you discard it from your hand using dp? or would it be banished in your opponent next end phase?
i hope it does cause it means you won't lose your draw like when you use Sword of Deep-Seated, would help dp decks alot!

I dare say that this is the best monster card in the game currently, tied with relinquished. Ppl need to realize how game changing negating spell is. Almost every deck uses spell, bar dino beatdown.

Who the f*ck summon dark paladin turn one without protection?set up first, try to gain card advantage using crystal seer etc. Play it with last gamble also help creating your beloved card advantage. Im sick of seeing vanilla otc variants, yet konami help it by releasing red lotus lol. I want to try something new and fun to play. Like this badass dark paladin.

If someone CAN summon Dark Paladin first turn, it means they have 3 non-setup cards in their hand. The chance that the final card in their hand is Crystal Seer or something is then extremely small.

Uh ppl DO summon dark paladin turn 1. Why? To negate Black Illlusion Ritual, OtC and the currently meta TOON KINGDOM. If your opponent doesn't have anything, most likely they can only summon 1 monster, so they can only use 1 OtC or something

Not true at all if you have sphere kuriboh in the graveyard you can summon relinquished with just two cards in your hand

My experience against dragon beatdown decks using Dark Paladin & BB fusion is pretty solid. They barely last 3 turns after you summon the big Boi.

Either rage quit or got wrecked hard
