  • 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.

If there is a Diamond Dude deck in this meta, this card will be an all-star in it. You do not have to pay the discard cost on this card when activating it via Diamond Dude.

But you see, the spells ran on a Diamond Dude deck are all spells that you can't consistently play or play at all since you want to send them to graveyard with Diamond Dude effect. Why would you want to recover Des Croaking, Bonding H2O or Final Destiny? You can't play them at all
How about Deap Seated magical stone excavation?
You actually lose 1 card.
Good for people with just one Union Attack.

you can use spell reclamation for that, it cost less, but is a trap card
I'll wait for you monster reborn
Monster Reborn would be sick combo with this card use Monster Reborn to bring back a strong monster than use Magical Stone Excavation than use Monster Reborn again to bring back another strong monster you discarded
this card would be extremely with monster reborn
A very useful tech card that will see some play to set up graveyard/ recycling combos
Worse version of spell reproduction?
