Evaluation

RatingB

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.

It's an excellent card. I was angry because it's not once per turn. I don't know why they make this sort of extreme effect not once per turn in some monsters.

The effect is not OPT, but still limited by the number of cards in the hand of the player controlling this card, that the player is willing to discard as cost.

Also, it only stop Spells. It does nothing against Monster effects and Traps.

Eye of Timaeus made this the bane of Blue Eyes. It even counters Cards of Consonance.

Since synchro or even upcoming xyz, this card is underwhelmed. Negating spell card is 2nd best negating mechanic in the game after monster. But card like Dark Cavalry, Ebon High and the new one: Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon have better effects. But still Dark Paladin is excellent beater and decent old boss monster

I believe this thread is one of the oldest ones, back when there was still a reigning GK meta. Like wow, Dark Paladin is a real, certified, pain-in-the-ass card to get.
lol
This one in a complete buster blader deck is pretty much insta win. RIP whoever faces you D:

Totally worth getting since many characters can be easily farmed with this card, such as alexis, etc.
