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.

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.
This one in a complete buster blader deck is pretty much insta win. RIP whoever faces you D:
I got this one with just 5 boxes.

Totally worth getting since many characters can be easily farmed with this card, such as alexis, etc.
I activate my card:
Difusion Wave motion !
First try both dark paladin and vampire lord
If you use this cancer beyond farming please disappear.
Opened 190 box. still no dark paladin. LMFAO

Ask yourself do you like/good playing with fusion deck. also, if you start late in this game. i say NO.

1) others cards are useless comparing to the latest boxes
2) ask yourself do you want a deck with either Dark magician or Busterblader in it?
3) i don't see many duelist running dragon deck
4) if you like it effect of negate spell card, Horus dragon does a better job

I thought of this card because it is often recommended for farm LG's and events.
