How to use this deck

3 Star Demotion

Since the skill can be used without the LP cost to summon any of the Gate Guardian monsters (Sanga, Kazejin, and Suijin), you can summon 1 of these for free! The skill can only be used once per duel, so you'll have to consider carefully when to summon this. It's important to remember that its effect can only be used when it's attacked, and can only be used once, instead of per turn. After you already use the skill to summon a Sanga, the other Sangas can be used as fodder for tribute material for either Black Luster Soldier, or Relinquished.

Gateway to Chaos

  • Gateway to Chaos: Early on, it's better to go for BLS so that you can use the Spell Counters for its ritual spell. When you are low on cards later on, you can use it to take Swift Gaia from your deck to normal summon a high attack monster.

  • Black Luster Soldier: It's a high attack monster with no effect, but through Gateway to Chaos and Super Soldier Synthesis, you can summon BLS quite frequently since it can be searched and special summoned from the graveyard.

  • Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight: Its main use in the deck is to be searched by Gateway to Chaos, and still be a good monster to summon when you are low on cards.

Ritual summoning

  • Djinn Disserere of Rituals: This support monster is used as part of the sacrifice to ritual summon either Relinquished, or BLS, making them unaffected by your opponent's trap effects.

  • Super Soldier Synthesis: This ritual spell card has a tricky requirement to summon BLS, but it can effectively bring it back from the grave. Use Djinn as part of the sacrifice to make BLS immune to trap effects.

  • Relinquished: Best used if your opponent summons a strong monster so that you can take it, but it can be risky to use if you think your opponent has Enemy Controller. If you have higher LP than your opponent, summoning Relinquished can be a big advantage since you can always attack into your opponent's monster to deal damage to them, it's a good last ditch effort. You can also use Sphere Kuriboh from your graveyard to ritual summon for Relinquished.

Se puede remplazar la esfera kuriboh por controladores de enemigos, pero tienes menos chances para el renunciado, pero aceleras muy rapido con los senjus y al hacer el primer ritual tendras ya disponible para invocar a tu renunciado

I like how this was taken from Duel Links Metal and they didn't give Dkayed any credit. All they did was change sphere kuriboh for sonic bird.

No, it's in the same row, so it's 44th. Don't ask why, as I dunno either.
The only thing dark magician needs is magicians soul in duel links and a decent skill maybe
