  • Retrieves 1 Spell card from your Graveyard to your hand.


  • Costly to use as it requires 2 cards to be discarded.


  • Currently due to the vast options of Spell/Trap cards, we don’t see much uses for Magical Stone Excavation, aside from bringing back limited edition Spell cards such as Swing of Memories, Burst Stream of Destruction, Dark Magic Attack etc.
  • Another downside of this card is the steep cost of requiring 2 cards to be discarded in order to activate its effect, which greatly effects your hand numbers.


If you have Swing of Memories in your Graveyard, you can use Magical Stone Excavation to retrieve it from your Graveyard, discard 2 monsters such as Darkstorm Dragon or Phoenix Gearfried, use Swing of Memories to bring 1 of these discarded monsters back to the field, perform your attacks, and during the End Phase when your monster is destroyed, use A Deal with Dark Ruler to bring out Berserk Dragon from your deck to maintain field presence.

Draw Support

Since this card is costly in terms of cards to be discarded, we can improve our draw power by using these recommended cards.

You can use that card and spell reclamation if you absolutely need to get a spell card back to use again. *cough*double snare*cough*enemy controller*cough*last day of witch*cough*

Yeah, something like discard Gozuki and Bacon then fetch RE Insight, maybe? Interesting idea.

Con: It doesn't trigger darkworld effects. Even though it states that you discard cards.

If a card has you discard as a cost, Dark World monsters can't chain their effects to it, as the original card's effect has not yet resolved. This is why you can't use Tribute to the Doomed either.
You neg yourself 3 cards in a 20 card deck. Beautiful!
How about for a handless deck?
this could possible be good in a sacred phoenix deck. Discard sacred phoenix plus get a spell card then special summon sacred phoenix the next turn.

No, phoenix will only revive if it's destroyed by effect, not by discard.

throw you in garbage so i can take your wallet thats is what that card do
This card will mainly come useful when/if we get Morphing Jar and Book of Moon to use with A/D Changer, A Feather of The phoenix and the other Empty Jar card list. However, I don't see Duel Links getting Morphing Jar in the near future.
Meh, might work for necrofear deck, but not many spell in that deck...

Could be used for Econ retrieval, just to discard. But yea, Necrofear and Chaos decks could use this.

They won't nerf one of the most expensive decks too much
